Women cricket may have evolved enormously in the recent times, their commitment and efforts on the field are remarkable. Their fielding standards have taken new heights and one such fine example of a spectacular effort on the field was shown by Hobart Hurricanes Corinne Hall during their Women’s Big Bash League encounter against Melbourne Renegades Women.

Batting first, Hurricanes posted a modest target of 122 on the board which needed some great bowling and fielding to defend. Rachel Priest and Sarah Elliott started the proceedings for Renegades and started off cautiously. On the final delivery of the fifth over from Julie Hunter, Priest charged down and attempted a big hit over mid off. She was beaten by the swing and only managed to get a thick outside edge on it. The ball seemed to be landing in no man’s land but Hall who was fielding at covers didn’t give up and kept a harp eye on the ball. After covering a reasonable distance she dived and grabbed the ball to complete a classic catch. Her concentration was rock solid and timing of the jump was perfect. The whole team was stunned by this instance and Hurricanes drew the first blood.

Hurricanes successfully defended the target as Renegades were bowled out for a mere score of 86. But this effort from Hall was undoubtedly one of the finest in the tournament.
