Rachel Priest (76 runs off 42 balls) was the foundation of Trent Rockets Women’s 18-run triumph over London Spirit Women at Lord’s in the new format of cricket called as The Hundred. Soul wound up with 133 for 7 in light of Rockets’ 151 for 4.
Cleric, the New Zealand wicket-guardian player, set the vibe for the innings with a 101-run remain off only 67 balls with Sammy-Jo Johnson. The feature of her thump was the manner in which she clubbed Heather Knight for a six over midwicket off the 38th wad of the innings. In the long run, she was excused by Danielle Gibson. After Priest was excused, Natalie Sciver, the captain, dominated and created a windy 16-ball 32 and pushed the score past 150. The manner in which she crushed Gibson over wide long-on gave a brief look at her sure plan.
For Spirit, Freya Davies and Charlotte Dean were conservative however Chloe Tryon and Gibson were costly. Indeed, Tryon bowled only five conveyances and parted with 16 runs. In quest for the serious objective, Spirit made a decent clench hand of the pursuit. Deandra Dottin (29) and Knight (31) made valuable commitments, and the side was sensibly all around set at 70 for 2 when they experienced a small scale breakdown.
Lower down the request, Dean and Gibson attempted to restore the innings with an undefeated remain of 21, however they had a lot to do. Lucy Higham got done with 2 for 12 while Johnson, Kathryn Bryce and Katherine Brunt sacked a scalp each. Both Spirit and Rockets have dominated one match after three matches. Soul, however, have opened in at one spot higher – fifth – on the rear of an unrivaled Net Run Rate.
