Watch: Harleen Deol’s Stunner To Dismiss Amy Jones

Harleen Deol

The first T20 International between India and England was a disappointing affair marred by rain. But Harleen Deol’s brilliance on the boundary ropes was the magic moment that caught everyone’s eye.

In the 19th over of the Match, Amy Jones who was well set on 43 was looking to go all guns blazing. She tried to take on Shikha Pandey but was caught by Harleen, who took an absolute stunner. Harleen was standing at the long-off boundary to save maximums. She jumped to catch the ball but just when the momentum took her over the ropes, she threw the ball back in the nick of time, thanks to her presence of mind.

Harleen Deol then dived back in to complete the catch. England opener Danielle Wyatt too couldn’t stop herself from acknowledging Harleen Deol’s brilliance.

Harleen’s catch soon went viral on social media as the fans and pundits applauded her mind-blowing effort. Veda Krishnamurthy too praised Harleen’s catch.
