After a scintillating batting performance, Harmanpreet Kaur has continued to make an impact on the game as she took an absolute blinder of a catch to send back Shafali Verma on 51.
In the 10th over, as Deandra Dottin bowled a short ball outside the off-stump, Verma slashed hard. But there was Harmanpreet Kaur waiting at the short-third man area as she sprung to her left and held on to the catch.

While talking in the mid-game interview, Kaur talked about her plan of putting runs on the board as she said, “We were looking to get a partnership. we always look to improve. But things don’t always happen as you plan. I am happy we were able to put runs on the board towards the end. If we keep getting wickets this total should be good enough.”
