In the final of the Women’s T20 Challenge 2020 between Supernovas and Trailblazers at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, the audience witnessed an outstanding fielding effort by Thailand’s Nattakan Chantam. The performance has stunned many and drew widespread appreciation.
Chantam has already created history for being the first player from Thailand to be included in the Women’s T20 Challenge 2020 and she didn’t disappoint. Chantam’s marvellous effort to save two runs came in the second over of Supernovas’ chase. In the second over bowled by Trailblazers’ Sophie Ecclestone, the very first ball got Supernovas’ Jemimah Rodrigues outside edge and was on her way to the third man boundary.
Chantam sprinted from the short third man position to stop the ball from a boundary. She put in a spectacular dive in the nick of the moment near the third man boundary to save two runs and a certain boundary. With her dive, she managed to stop the ball and flick it back to safety. Chantam landed heavily on her shoulder, but in the process was able to stop the ball from crossing the rope.
