Tornadoes win. They are the champions. Luus with the winning blow. Tossed up outside off, sliced away over the off-side ring, no-one in the deep and the ball runs away
With that we end the coverage of this tournament. On behalf of everyone who worked on this, Binoy, Venkat, Vairavan and the other ones I don't seem to recall, thanks for following the coverage. Hope you have enjoyed it. Until next time, it's a goodbye and a good night from here. Stay safe and see you soon. Ta, ta!
The Tornadoes are presented with the trophy and the celebrations begin.
10:59pm: Joyous celebrations in the Tornadoes camp. They have won the inaugural FairBreak invitational tournament. Coming to the chase, Devine and Kalis again with a fine opening stand of 76 which set it up. Devine was severe on the spinners and hit some big sixes. Her wicket slowed down things but Taylor came in and along with Kalis steered the ship closer. Even though Kalis fell, the Tornadoes were never behind the rate and Luus finished it off in the final over. 151 did not prove to be enough especially after the quick start by the Tornadoes.
Shukla to bowl the final over. 4 needed. Just 3 allowed outside the ring as the Falcons are behind the over-rate.
tossed up on the stumps, driven to long-on
a dot as Luus flicks to mid-wicket
Luus perhaps with the killer blow. Full on the stumps, with minimal backlift she swings through the line and clears long-off on the full, clean and crisp
Alam at cover-point dives to her left and saves three. Taylor backs away and crunched that, went off the bat at pace
full-toss on the stumps, chipped in front of mid-off for a quick single
tossed up outside off, Luus inside-edges the flick onto the boot, rolls to cover
Taylor comes down and heaves over mid-wicket, Sathish runs around from deep mid-wicket and slides to save the boundary
good length outside off, punched to cover
tossed up outside off, Luus knocks it to long-on
fine sweep. Full sliding down, Luus with the hard sweep and beats deep backward square who dives in vain
flat on off, Taylor muscles the pull to deep mid-wicket
punched to the sweeper
important boundary that.. Angling in, on middle and leg, glanced fine and deep backward square can't get across in time
the slower ball gets Kalis. Takes a couple of steps forward but lofts high and finds Bates at long-on. More height than distance and the Falcons believe again
slower ball and Taylor gets forward to drive to long-on
swiped to mid-wicket and the throw is weak and that allows Kalis to get in
off-pace off-cutter and mistimed to cover
good length on off, dabbed to backward point
just short of mid-off. Taylor lofts and the ball does not carry to the fielder who opts to field on the bounce
