Team India’s young star Archana Devi produced a one-handed stunning catch on Sunday in the summit clash of ICC Women’s Under-19 T20 World Cup final match against England at Senwes Park, Potchefstroom. The Women in Blue were sensational with ball in the big-ticket finale to bundle out England for just 68. It was a dominant show from the Indian bowlers as 7 English batters failed to reach the double-figure mark in the final of inaugural Women’s U-19 T20 WC final.
Archana grabbed the limelight on social media for her terrific catch to dismiss Ryana Macdonald Gay. It was the first ball of the twelfth over when the English batswoman drove the ball in the air on the cover and Archana dived to her right and grabbed a sensational one-handed stunner to help India claimed the sixth wicket. Bowler Parshavi Chopra and other Indian players ran towards to celebrate the wicket.
