Actually, the 19th over of Mumbai Indians’ innings was being bowled by Annabel Sutherland from Gujarat Giants. On the fourth ball of her over, MI captain Harmanpreet Kaur, playing aggressively, tried to steal 2 runs by playing a shot towards mid-wicket and mid-on. But Harleen Deol, posted at the boundary, dashed all his wishes. Harleen ran towards the ball with lightning speed and immediately grabbed the ball and threw it at the non-striker’s end. Significantly, his throw went straight to the stumps. In such a situation, Humaira Kazi, coming back running at the non-striker’s end, got out after scoring just 2 runs. At the same time, the video of this amazing throw of Harleen is becoming fiercely viral on social media.
