Hall's screamer hits the mark for Hobart

Hobart Hurricanes allrounder Corinne Hall has produced a contender for catch of the summer in her first Rebel Women's Big Bash League outing.
The 28-year-old scored 13 runs and didn't bowl in Hobart's 35-run win over the Melbourne Renegades on Friday night, but was named player of the match after a night out in the field at Launceston’s Aurora Stadium.
She took a screamer at deep backward point to remove dangerous New Zealand import Rachel Priest and followed up with a direct hit to run out Renegades captain Sarah Elliott.

Another sharp catch – ending England allrounder Danielle Wyatt's knock – and a second run-out capped off a brilliant night for Hall, who puts her sharp reflexes down to playing representative touch rugby.
"It's nice when they (catches) come off but all the girls worked very good as a unit," Hall said.
"Collectively I think we were pretty good in the field."
Hall's screamer should hardly have come as a surprise, with the Hunter Valley product tipped as the 'player most likely to take an outrageous catch' by teammates Heather Knight and Katelyn Fryett at the start of the season.
