In the Kia Super League match between Lancashire and Surrey, Kate Cross completely made Sarah Taylor look like a fool during the celebration when the leg-spinner took the wicket of Laura Marsh. Taylor swiftly removed the bails of Marsh who advanced down the track to hit the ball out of sight.
Cross completely bamboozled Marsh with her flight and guile as the batter raced back to the crease. Taylor, who is currently the best wicketkeeper-batter in World Cricket at the moment, easily latched on to the opportunity to dislodge the bails. She was later completely ignored for her good work as Kate Cross celebrated with her other teammates, making it awkward for Sarah Taylor who was expecting a high ten from the bowler.
The look on her face and the gesture followed by it was as good as gold. Her gesture expressed that she played a crucial in her taking a wicket while Cross was completely oblivious to her presence during celebrations. Kate Cross took to Twitter to apologize her Lancashire teammate. She captioned the video by stating,” When you take a stumping but no one acknowledges you @Sarah_Taylor30 … #SorrySarah..”
