The fans and spectators have witnessed some innovative strokes in the past and England women’s team batter Tammy Beaumont did something similar against India in the third and deciding T20I of the series. 

In the starting of the fourth over of the innings that was being bowled by left-arm spinner Radha Yadav, the right-handed batter hit a boundary towards the deep fine leg. Beaumont pulled a back of the length delivery from Yadav while she almost went behind the line of the stumps after moving across. 

Beaumont’s stay at the crease in the 154-run chase was a brief one as she departed soon after being trapped in front of the stumps by Deepti Sharma for 11 off 15. 

But her opening partner Danielle Wyatt who was looking in some good form while batting steadied the ship for the side and stitched a stand of 112 runs for the second wicket with Natalie Sciver who had joined her in the middle at number three . 

Wyatt remained unbeaten at 89 off 56 while Sciver eventually departed for a 36-ball 42. The home side won the match by 8 wickets and as many balls to spare to clinch the series 2-1. 

Later, Wyatt talked about getting back in form and the contribution she made in the side’s win. “It was about time (to get back to form). It was my night today. Glad to contribute to a series win,” she said. 

England had also won the three-match ODI series 2-1 earlier.
