Australia and England teams are currently participating in the women’s Ashes. The second ODI witnessed a superb catch by Meg Lanning. In the context of the encounter, it was actually an important grab. In this article, we take a look at the wonder catch by Meg Lanning in the ongoing Ashes.
A brilliant wonder catch by Meg Lanning
England and Australia women’s teams are taking part in the Ashes. After the conclusion of the T20I and the Test games, the squads are playing the ODIs now. Australia has won the first ODI encounter and the second game is currently happening in Melbourne.
Just like the earlier games, Australia applied screws on England in the second ODI, as well. The England team was all out for just 129 in the first innings. Along with the brilliant bowling by the Aussie bowlers, they were also complemented by amazing fielding. Especially in Meg Lanning’s case, she pulled off a screamer in the slip cordon. It resulted in the important wicket of Danielle Wyatt of Annabel Sutherland‘s bowling. Here is a look at the catch below:

Australia has dominated the English Team
It has actually been a tough ride for the England Team in the last few months. The men’s team suffered an embarrassing 4-0 defeat at the hands of the Aussies a few weeks ago. This has had its effects, with the likes of Chris Silverwood facing the axe. The women’s team is also under pressure now.
The T20I series was started with a brilliant win by Australia. However, the next two games ended without a result. The one-off Test match was one of the best that was witnessed in recent years. Although both teams had a good chance of winning the game, it eventually ended in a draw. The Aussies won the first ODI game and are looking in a favourable position to win the second encounter, as well.
