List of 7 Hit-Wicket Dismissals in Women’s T20Is

Getting out hit-wicket is one of the rare forms of dismissals in cricket. With Australia captain getting out hit wicket on Sunday during the third T20I that was played between Australia and India at the Metricon Stadium in Queensland, there have been discussions doing the rounds on this form of dismissal. India’s left-arm spinner Rajeshwari Gayakwad accounted for Lanning’s wicket.

So far, there have been only seven instances (including Meg Lanning’s wicket) of batters getting out hit-wicket in the history of women’s T20Is.
