A gem of an inning from Chloe Tryon leads Hobart to defeat Sixers by 5 wickets in Sydney.
Winning the toss, Sixers in absence of injured Ellyse Perry opted for bat. The young Yorkshire allrounder Hollie Armitage replaced Perry at the top. Sadly both the openers fell cheaply. Even the upcoming batters Burns and Gardener too failed as Vakerawa was on fire with her fast bowling. She picked up the top 4 of sixers. Sixers struggling at 29 for 4, Kapp came to rescue them and played an exceptional and unbeaten inning of 55 runs which helped Sixers to cross 130, she got good support from Smith and Dane Vane Niekerk, which made Sixers to end innings on 134 for 7 in 20 overs. Hobart bowlers had a great outing especially Vakerawa who is having a sensational time.
Chasing the target, Hurricanes had worst of the start as the top 4 got out in a quick time. Again credits to Kapp who showed us why she is a top-rated bowler in the world. She got 3 quick wickets. When it looked like it is over for Hurricanes, in came Nicola Carey who played a sensible and responsible inning with which Hobart won. She got excellent support from Corinne Hall. But, when the game was going away from Hurricanes, the hard hitter Tryon played an unbelievable cameo of 29 runs in 12 balls including 1 four and 3 sixes helped Hurricanes to win a dramatic match by 5 wickets.
Brief Scores: Sixers 134 for 7 in 20 overs (Kapp 55*, & Vakerawa 4 for 19 ) lost to Hurricanes 139 for 5 in 18.2 overs (Carey 55*, Tryon 29* & Kapp 3 for 23) by 5 wickets.
