Hilarious Bowler Reaction After Last Ball Miracle Catch
A screamer of a catch by Haidee Birkett has sent Brisbane Heat through to the WBBL final.
Sydney Thunder and the Heat played in the semi-final thriller on Saturday at Drummoyne Oval in Sydney.
Thunder needed five off the last ball to go through to the final, and it all seemed set to happen when Nicola Carey got hold of a good piece of the ball.
As it looked to be going over for a definite six, Heat's hearts most certainly would have sunk.
Enter Haidee Birkett.
Sprinting round the boundary rope, Birkett made a spectacular diving one-handed catch.
As Carey walked off brokenhearted and bat above head, the bowler Jess Jonassen had a very different reaction.
Running towards her team, the pure shock of what had just happened was clearly etched on her face.
Even she couldn't believe the screamer of a catch.
The impressive catch meant Heat won the match by four runs, and will play in the final next Saturday.
