Megan Schutt Exudes Relief Following Her Match-Winning Over In The T20 World Cup Final

Megan Schutt, an Australian speed bowler, said that it was nerve-wracking before bowling the 17th over of the South African inning in the 2023

T20 World Cup final on Sunday in Cape Town (February 26). Laura Woolvardt and Chloe Tyron kept hammering away at the target, putting pressure on Australia, according to Schutt, who received the fresh ball.

In a challenging 157-run chase, the Proteas had a ray of hope thanks to the 55-run stand between Woolvardt and Tyron. To put a significant damage in the home team's chances of winning the title, 

Schutt struck in the 17th over, dismissing the former for 61. The Proteas needed 53 runs off 24 deliveries up to that point, but ultimately fell 19 runs short.

The 30-year-old said in a post-match interview that Woolvardt was striking the ball really well and that Australia was lucky to capture her scalp at a pivotal moment.

She was pounding them hard - and so was Chloe. So, towards the end, it was actually rather frightening.

Don't get me wrong, we were under the pump... 

she probably attempted to play me too square, which did her in, but she was hitting down the ground nicely. It was a crucial wicket, but only by chance did it fall.
