JUST 14 YEARS OLD KATE CHANDLER CHARMS CRICKET, TAKES 5 WICKETS

In New Zealand’s Wellington, Women’s Cricket is worth watching, especially the Under 19 Girls cricket in which it is clearly seen how pristine and the untapped potential they possess. 

New Zealand deserves a round of applause for the appreciation it accords to the Women and Girls in the field of cricket. But in a match which happened on the 19th of December, a very young girl cricketer, Kate Chandler has taken the internet by storm with her performance in that match.

Kate Chandler exhibits Canty and Captivating Performance

Like every year, in 2020 the Wellington Cricket was lucky enough to organize the Under 19 Women’s Cricket even in the conditions of the prevailing and current pandemic. One of the current ongoing series in Wellington is the Hallyburton Johnstone Shield i.e. domestic One Day match of the women’s cricket team in New Zealand. In round 5, of the Hallyburton Johnstone Shield, on 19 December 2020 at in the Hagley Oval, Christchurch, two of the prime teams ‘Wellington Blaze’ and ‘Canterbury Magicians’ faced off each other in a frisky and fantastic cricket fight.

The Fulcrum and Highlight of the game is the wonderful girl cricketer who took the match to another level and secured victory for her team. She took a whole of 5 wickets for her team. AE Satterthwaite, KE Ebrahim, LMM Tahuhu, LEV Hughes, and GES Sullivan were the players who weren’t able to middle the ball balled by Kate, and when they hit the ball, they found a player on the field, and KM was stumped by McFayden on the ball of Kate Chandler.

Along with these wickets, she let Canterbury Magicians make only 41 in 9.1 overs delivered by Kate out of which two were maiden overs. She is a leg spinner and her admirations are done by many of the famous and renowned cricket authorities and one of the New Zealand Cricket Statement says that Kate’s is the 14th best haul in the history of List A cricket of Wellington Women.

This is nothing, even ICC (International Cricket Council) has sung the praises of this 14-year-old prodigy. ICC tweeted officially,

And the Cricket Wellington celebrated the winning by posting Kate’s picture in which is smiling, holding the cricket ball,

Conclusion

This might surprise you but she still is a schoolgirl and this was her third time when she played for the Wellington Blaze and that one match has taken her to the heights of whatsoever fame. She may or may not know that she will inspire more and more girls to join the Wellington Cricket or their respective cricket team and go forward in the direction of their dreams if theirs is to be a cricketer.

Until the following times, stay safe and healthy and wear a mask and be connected with us.
