Team India cricketer Radha Yadav stole the show with her remarkable fielding during the Women’s T20 cricket 2022 Commonwealth Games finals against Australia at the Edgbaston Stadium on Sunday, August 8. She left the fans amazed with her outstanding run-out to send Meg Lanning back to the hut. Radha Yadav also took a breath-taking catch to dismiss Tahlia McGrath during the Australian innings.
Bowling first, Indian bowlers pulled off a decent effort to restrict Australia to 161 runs. Beth Mooney was the leading run-scorer in the innings with 61 runs off 41 deliveries. Meanwhile, Renuka Singh picked a couple of wickets each for India. During the first innings, Radha Yadav impressed everyone with his fantastic fielding.
In the eleventh over, Beth Mooney pushed one of the deliveries to the right of the bowler Radha Yadav. The non-striker Meg Lanning set off for a run, instinctively. However, seeing Radha Yadav slide to her left and collect the ball, she restrained herself. Meanwhile, Radha Yadav’s sharp underarm throw dislodged the bails, before Lanning could get back in the crease.
The Indian cricketer pulled off another brilliant effort in the field, in the next over. She took a stunning diving catch just inches above the grass to dismiss Tahlia McGrath. Deepti Sharma bowled a short and wide delivery, which McGrath cut in the air, but was caught by Radha Yadav.
