And it was the incident from the second inning when Healy Matthews and Yastika Bhatia were on the field. Yastika managed to score 42 and was playing beautifully.
Sophie Ecclestone came to bowl in the 5th over of the inning. Matthew was facing her.
Healy dug out the ball and UP Warriorz thought that it was a pad-Bat and they took the review. The major DRS showed the footage of the ball touching Matthews's shoes first and the ball was ticking the LPW. So Healy Matthew was given out by the third umpire.
