Haidee Birkett - Alyssa Healy

'Holy holy moly!' – Plaudits for outrageous fielding in WBBL semi-finals

WBBL 4, news

Sydney Sixers and Brisbane Heat will lock horns in the final of the Women Big Bash League – after remarkable fielding efforts in their respective semi-finals took them there.

At first, it was Haidee Birkett who held on to a stunning catch at the boundary when Sydney Thunder required five runs off the final delivery. It was a riveting grab that propelled Heat into their maiden WBBL final. 

Just as we thought our hearts had endured enough vicarious thrill for the day, Erin Burns, Sarah Aley and Alyssa Healy combined for this bit of brilliance. Melbourne Renegades had needed three of the final delivery, and the run-out took the match to the Super Over. 

And of course, cricket Twitter erupted in appreciation. 

Glenn Maxwell, whose drop of MS Dhoni in Australia's final one-day international against India proved costly, was up for feedback.

It was indeed, the women's game at its best.
