Amazing run out of two fielders
Experienced all-rounder Ellis Parry started scoring runs as soon as he landed at the crease. But in the 9th over of the innings, Parry cut the ball behind square and tried to take a quick single. But Nat Sciver-Brunt made a spectacular dive to stop the ball. Richa Ghosh, at the non-striker’s end, sent Parry back but it was too late as Humaira Qazi hit a direct throw. Parry was far away from the crease at that time.

Alice Parry, considered the best all-rounder in women’s cricket history, had a great start to the innings. He opened his account with a four. He hit a six on the very next ball. Even after this, she was continuously rotating the strike. She could have become a big threat for Mumbai but the fielding of Kazi and Seaver Brunt sent her back to the pavilion. His innings of 13 runs came off 7 balls.
