During the practice game between South Australia Scorpions and Queensland Fire ahead of the start of Women’s National Cricket League (WNCL), the talk of the town was Megan Schutt.
The 26-year old Australian fast bowler put on quite a show for the fans and outfoxed her opponent with a banana inswinger.
Megan Schutt bowls an absolute peach
Schutt charged in and bowled a delivery, which started from way outside the off-stump. After having a look at the ball, the batter felt that it would miss the stumps and hence, decided to leave it alone. However, she was in for the biggest surprise of her life.
The leather generated massive swing in the air and also moved off the track. Subsequently, it crashed into the middle stump. The batter looked behind and was also left shell-shocked.
On the other hand, Schutt was all over the moon after producing an absolute peach to get the wicket.

In 108 matches at the international level, Schutt has claimed 151 wickets with the help of six four-wicket hauls. Her Test and ODI average are in the early 20s even as her T20I bowling average is 15.46. She has been successful both with the new and the old leather, which shows her sheer class in the sport.
