Spike got stuck in the pitch’ – Mithali Raj
Mithali Raj’s run-out in the final was spoken about widely
Mithali Raj’s run-out during India’s loss in the Women’s World Cup final on Sunday was among the many moments that were touted as turning points in the match. The manner of her dismissal, though, gained attention in particular. Raj had sprinted most of the way while trying to steal a single, but slowed down in the final quarter of the pitch. She barely grounded her bat as wicketkeeper Sarah Taylor whipped the bails off.
