Commentry
That is it! A double-header so, it is time for Southern Brave Women to take on Oval Invincibles Women shortly. The coverage has already started. So, switch the tabs and join us there. Cheers!
Bryony Smith is the Player of the Match. She says she and Lizelle Lee always look to score quickly. Adds Birmingham Phoenix Women bowled well in the end but 130-140 looked like a competitive total. Reckons it got closer than they wanted but fortunately it came off. Shares they got good support from the crowd and great to see so many out there.
....Presentation time...
Trent Rockets Women keep their slim hopes alive. They won by a small margin but a win is a win. Trent Rockets Women bowled in the pitch with slower balls and kept things tight till the end. The spinners were key for Trent Rockets Women. However, it was Bryony Smith who kept her nerves in the last spell to get her team over the line and it was herself with the bat as well, her fifty made a huge difference. Trent Rockets Women are doing everything to keep themselves in the hunt.
Birmingham Phoenix Women were finding it very difficult to get going. There was a moment where boundaries totally dried up. However, somehow with singles and doubles and mostly due to Amy Jones, they kept their chances going. The other batters struggled and that didn't help Birmingham Phoenix Women in the chase. Still, to be honest, if Jones would have been on strike in the end, they would have made it.
Amy Jones was batting so well, was so close to take her team over the line but fails to get the strike in the last five balls. Huge moment as that means, Birmingham Phoenix Women wait for their first win this season.
