And, Brunt opened up on the dropped catch. Brunt said that Sciver is her fiancée and she cannot scream at her because she dropped the catch.

“No. I cannot scream at my fiancee. It only makes such people worse, and things happen, stuff happen you don’t expect it, you work really hard to get one opportunity,” said Katherine Brunt in a video posted by ESPNCricinfo.
No one means to drop a catch: Katherine Brunt
Katherine Brunt also added that no player will ever mean to drop a catch for their side. Brunt also said that even though she is extremely passionate about her game, she cannot let that dropped catch affect her.
