In the ongoing Women’s Super Smash 2022-23, Laura Harris has produced one of the funniest dives. The incident happened during the game between Wellington and Canterbury on January 23. In the game, the visitors, Canterbury won the toss and elected to bowl first. The home team, Wellington had a decent start as they scored 104/3 in 13 overs. The top three batters failed to convert their starts albeit a slow one.
Meanwhile, in the 15th over of the innings, New Zealand international Laura Harris and Charli Knott had a misunderstanding over an extra run. The former played a lofted straight drive off Sarah Asmussen. Knott played it straight but her shot was stopped by a long-on fielder. The latter got rid of the ball. After this, Harris, who was looking for a second, needed to head back to save her wicket.
Despite losing her bat and the balance, she made it with Asmussen losing the ball and throwing the ball late.
