WATCH : Deepti Sharma’s presence of mind ends Issy Wong’s carnage

The match between Mumbai Indians and UP Warriorz is unfolding as a contest with a low score. Mumbai Indians were dismissed for a meager 127 in their first innings, while Warriorz lost their opening wicket within just two overs.

Despite this, Issy Wong managed to score 32 runs off 19 deliveries, enabling the team to surpass the 120-run milestone. Although she could have added further to their score, a shrewd maneuver from Deepti Sharma resulted in her being dismissed and heading back to the pavilion.

During the final over of the innings, Deepti was bowling when Wong, the batsman, hit 10 runs off the first three balls by hitting a boundary and a six. On the fourth delivery, she struck the ball towards long-off where a fielder was positioned in the deep.

While the batters completed a single, Wong attempted to go for the second run, but her partner Jintimani Kalita hesitated to move forward. Consequently, when the fielder at the non-striker’s end threw the ball to Deepti, Kalita was struggling to reach the crease.

Nonetheless, instead of taking an easy run-out chance, the bowler opted for an unexpected tactic. She delivered a direct hit at the striker’s end where Wong was sprinting, catching the batter off guard as she had not anticipated Deepti’s throw to be aimed at her end. The Indian all-rounder continued her exceptional fielding display by dismissing the subsequent batter with another accurate throw.
