3. Natalie Seaver was run out due to confusion
Natalie Seaver-Brunt was run out due to confusion. UP Warriors player Sophie Eccleston decided to run out Nat Sciver-Brunt in place of Hayley Matthews.

The incident occurred when Mathews was nearing his half-century, having scored 47 runs by hitting a four on the third ball of Eccleston's over. Seaver-Brunt's threat was increasing at the other end, scoring only 19 runs from his first 14 balls.

Eccleston bowled a short ball towards the off stump to Matthews, which he played on the off side. Mathews took a quick single, hesitated to run Seaver-Brunt, then moved ahead. Two fielders approached the ball between cover and point, causing the ball to be bowled to Eccleston at the bowler's end.

As the fielder took the ball, Matthews stopped in the middle of the pitch and tried to turn back. Natalie Seaver continued running, stopping only when she saw Matthews turn.

The ball was bowled to Eccleston before it crossed Natalie Seaver, well away from the batsman's pitch. Seeing the ball near the fielder, Matthews again changed his mind and tried to complete the run, so that if Eccleston got the ball, he would be run out.

Instead of opting to drop the bails and run out Matthews, Eccleston bowled the ball to wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy. By the time Healy took the ball, Matthews had already dismissed Natalie Seaver in an attempt to sacrifice herself.

Natalie Seaver-Brunt could score only 19 runs in 14 balls.
