The incident happened on the third ball of the fourth over of the first innings as MI looked in trouble after losing early wickets to a fantastic spell from Marizanne Kapp.
Shikha bowled it full on the pads as Mathews looked to drive the ball but ended up hitting it uppishly to the right of mid-on, where Jemimah dived to take a superb low catch.

She kissed the ball after completing the catch and has a beaming smile on her face.
If the catch felt like a deja-vu, well it is not the first time that Jemimah dismissed Mathews with a stunner.
In the reverse fixture between Delhi Capitals’ match against Mumbai Indians on March 9 and that too at the same venue, Jemimah sent off in-form batter Matthews off Alice Capsey.
With an intention to clear the fence, the Caribbean batter went for a biggie but could not connect the ball properly. Her mistimed attempt went high in the air and seemed to be landed safely in a no-man region.
Jemimah also danced along with her teammates and many others to the famous Bollywood song Woh Ladki Jo. At the end of the video posted on social media, she even praised DC captain Meg Lanning for brilliantly mimicking Shah Rukh Khan’s iconic pose
