Australia women’s cricket team batter Beth Mooney hogged the limelight after showcasing grit and determination in the ongoing one-off women’s Ashes Test against England women’s in Canberra. Despite breaking her jaw during throw downs ahead of the one-off Test, Mooney decided to take the field, and also came out to bat. While she was dismissed for 3 in the first innings, Mooney was seen giving his absolute best on the field. In an attempt to save the boundary, Mooney threw herself near the boundary line, despite playing with a broken jaw.
A video of Mooney throwing “herself around” in the outfield was shared by 7Cricket.
