Watch Delhi Capitals Women pacer Tara Norris open up about her 5-wicket haul!

Women’s Premier League sole Associate nation representative Tara Norris impressed as well as shocked everyone thanks to her tremendous performance with the ball in Delhi Capitals Women’s 60-run win over Royal Challengers Bangalore Women.

The Pennsylvania born left-arm pacer took WPL’s first ever 5-wicket haul and sent a clear threat to her opponents that she is going to be a serious problem as the tournament proceeds. Before the WPL, Tara Norris expressed her excitement and anticipation to be a part of the first ever edition and she has already started to make a positive impact.

Tara had a wonderful match against the RCB Women as she removed some the big names from the crease. Her first WPL scalp is something that she will barely forget. The 24-year-old led to the departure of a set Ellyse Perry who was batting at a strike rate of 163 and if it wasn’t for Norris, Perry could have taken the match in favor of RCB W.

Her 2nd WPL wicket was Disha Kasat with Richa Ghosh becoming her 3rd. Norris’ 4th wicket was also special as she removed England’s Heather Knight for 34 and her 5th wicket saw her catch out Kanika Ahuja for a Golden duck.

Her outstanding day with the ball overshadowed Meg Lanning and Shafali Verma’s respective half-centuries and their partnership of 162. Figures of 5/29 with a brilliant economy rate of 7.25 saw her earn the man of the match award in just her first WPL appearance.

In terms of her bowling strategies, Norris said that she tried to keep everything as simple as possible since it was a high scoring pitch with short boundaries.
