England’s Fran Wilson pulled off a catch to rival anything seen in Women’s cricket in recent times during her side’s big win over the West Indies on Friday.
Fielding at cover in the third and final one-day international at the County Ground,Chelmsford, Wilson dived full length to grab a blinder to dismiss the Windies opener Hayley Matthews for six.
TV replays showed Wilson perfectly horizontal as she soared to her left and somehow managed to get both her hands to the powerful hit from Matthews.
Here’s the video:
What … a … catch! 😯 Incredible! Take a bow @fwilson07 🙌

Wilson’s safe hands helped England skittle West Indies for 131 in reply to the hosts’ 258/4 off 39 overs in the rain-shortened match. They won by the match by 135 runs via the Duckworth-Lewis method and sealed the series 3-0.
