Indian women cricket team may not be very glamorous as compared the men’s team but they are not very far in terms of the potential. Their game have evolved over the years and there’s no longer a myth that women can’t play competitive cricket.

Amita Sharma has changed the way people think about women’s cricket in India. During the 18th match of International Cricket Council Women’s World Cup in 2009, against New Zealand, Amita stunned everyone with her valiant effort at mid-off.

Batting first, Indian women team posted a decent total of 207 on the board. In return, New Zealand women got off to a good start and were easily moving towards the target. On the fourth delivery of the 31st over, Gouher Sultana bowled a flighted off break delivery outside the off stump to left-handed Amy Satterthwaite. Amy got tempted with the flight and shimmied down the wicket in an attempt to play it through covers but failed to get the placement right. The ball was in the air and was drifting away from Amita, who was fielding at mid-off. She had a clear look at it and dived towards her right pull off a magnificent catch within few inches off the ground.

However India women lost that match by five wickets this catch surely remains as the highlights of the match and probably one of the best matches taken in Women’s cricket history.
