Melbourne Stars’ Nat Sciver got an “out of this world” on Saturday in a Women’s Big Bash League match against Sydney Thunders to send Tammy Beaumont back. In the 13th over, Beaumont went for a reverse sweep and the ball appeared to sail over the point area, but a flying Nat Sciver, who dove to the left, took an excellent catch with one hand to clear Sydney Thunder’s opening batter. “You’re kidding! Nat Sciver, that’s out of this WORLD! Catch of the season so far, no doubt about it,” WBBL’s official Twitter handle wrote the video on the microblogging site.
