In the WPL match versus Royal Challengers Bangalore, Gujarat Giants elected to bat and their batters have been hitting the opposition bowlers to all corners of the field. Sophia Dunkley was the star of the opening innings, scoring a half-century.
Harleen Deol also contributed with a fifty of her own. However, after Dunkley got out, GG’s score was reduced to 82/2. Ashleigh Gardner then came in and stabilized the innings. During her innings, Gardner partnered with Harleen to score 53 runs for the third wicket and hit two boundaries.
However, Heather Knight of the opposing team proved to be a key player by providing a much-needed breakthrough. Knight bowled a tossed-up delivery to Gardener in the penultimate ball of the 14th over. Despite being in a dangerous position, Gardner attempted to hit the ball hard but missed the line completely.
As a result, Rich Ghosh was able to cleanly shatter the stumps with her gloves. As Gardner is considered one of the top batters in international cricket, fans on Twitter applauded the bowler for delivering a vital breakthrough for the team.
