Melbourne Stars’ Nat Sciver pulled off an “out of this world” grab in a Women’s Big Bash League match against Sydney Thunders to send back Tammy Beaumont on Saturday. In the 13th over, Beaumont went for a reverse sweep and the ball looked to be sailing over the point region, however, a flying Nat Sciver, diving to her left, took an outstanding one-handed catch to remove Sydney Thunder’s opening batter. “You are KIDDING! Nat Sciver, that is out of this WORLD! Catch of the season so far, no doubt about it,” WBBL’s official Twitter handle captioned the video on the micro-blogging site.
