ICC Women’s World T20: Is she a bird or a plane, Australia’s Tayla Vlaeminck took a stunning catch to dismiss Veda Krishnamurthy in the ongoing ICC Women’s World T20. She was stationed at backward square-leg and Veda looked to pull a short ball from Ashleigh Gardner. Veda did not get it out of the middle of the bat and it looked it had enough to go over the fielder, but she leaped in the air off the ground to pull off a one-handed stunner.
