IND vs AUS 1st ODI: Darcie Brown Grabs A Diving Catch To Send Back India Captain Harmanpreet Kaur

On Thursday, December 28, Darcie Brown took an outstanding catch to dismiss India skipper Harmanpreet Kaur in the first match of three-match ODI series at the Wankhede Stadium. The right-handed Indian batter got out for just nine runs off 17 balls, which included a boundary.

The brilliant dismissal happened in the 13th over of India innings. Australian bowler Ashleigh Gardner bowled a tossed-up delivery and Harmanpreet Kaur looked to sweep it but ended with a top edge instead. Darcie Brown fielding at short fine, dived to her left and grabbed the ball to complete a stunning catch. 

Darcie Brown provided the first breakthrough for her team dismissing Shafali Verma with a corker for just one run. India finished for 282/8 in their 50 overs credit to Jemimah Rodrigues’s 82 run knock and Pooja Vastrakar’s 62 run contribution that came later in the innings.
