One of the toughest jobs in cricket is to keep wickets as a wicket-keeper has to be attentive on every ball bowled and he/she has to be super quick to do the stumping.
In men’s cricket, Indian wicket-keeper MS Dhoni is considered as the fastest behind the stump while in women’s cricket, this title can easily go to the England wicket-keeper Sarah Taylor.
In the first ODI of ICC Championship that was played between England and South Africa, Sarah stumped South African batswoman with lightning pace. The match was lost by England as it scored only 189/9 in 50 overs while South Africa scored 193 for 3.
South African opener Laura Wolvaardt had just departed and Sune Luus came to bat in. The bowler Anya Shrubsole bowled a length delivery towards the leg side. Sune missed the ball and Sarah collected it; Sarah saw that Sune has walked out of crease while attempting to play the delivery; she removed the bails quickly and made an appeal. The decision was referred to the third umpire and the batswoman was declared out.
England cricket shared the video of Sune’s dismissal on Twitter with caption, “Simply incredible! @Sarah_Taylor30 with the fastest hands in the game.”

What an unbelievable talent. Probably the best stumping I’ve seen in either men’s or women’s cricket. Great knock from Katherine Brunt to give a fighting chance. Go for it!
