Marizanne Kapp20102021.002010
7b to EL Lamb, nicked off! But somehow given not out by umpire Robinson?! The Invincibles opt for a review, almost immediately. Huge appeal. Massive spike on Ultra-Edge, so the decision is overturned and Marizanne Kapp has the first-ever out wicket in the Hundred! Length ball in the channel outside off but a loose shot from Lamb, who had a flash with no foot movement. 4/1
90b to M du Preez, length ball, slapped over cow corner, and straight to the fielder! It felt like the wrong option as the shot climbed through the line, but du Preez didn't get the power or elevation, and Villiers made no mistake! The pendulum swings again. 113/5
Tash Farrant20102531.253100
71b to L Lee, Lee holes out to cover! Farrant returns to pick off the big scalp! A big swipe through the full length, a steepling leading edge, and a good confident take, strolling round from point. Important timing for the breakthrough. 96/3
85b to H Kaur, plinked to short fine leg! Kaur's superb acceleration is over! She attempted something dinky, using the pace to lift the ball over the keeper's head, but didn't get the connection to clear the fielder.. 108/4
99b to S Ecclestone, wider line, dragged out for the slog, beaten outside off, and off come the bails! Sharp work from Sarah Bryce, gathering cleanly and giving Ecclestone no time to recover. 133/6
Shabnim Ismail1552301.533011
Dane van Niekerk1551601.062000
Mady Villiers2072911.455010
48b to GEB Boyce, skips down, and chips a catch to extra cover! Mady Villiers breaks the stand. Dragged her pace down a touch, having fired a couple through, and Boyce only manages to find Adams, the fielder on the edge of the ring.. 59/2

Alex Hartley2072801.403110
Kate Cross1872831.554002
7b to A Capsey, shuffles across, but her lap-scoop goes straight into Threlkeld's hands! Fullish outside off, Capsey looked to shuffle over short fine leg, but got a small tickle on it - possibly via the glove - and the keeper gobbled it up. Early breakthrough. 7/1
8b to GJ Gibbs, knocked her over! Cross is on a hat-trick! Gibbs trudges off and the Originals are on fire. Good length, through Gibbs as she looks to work into the leg side, and crashes into the top of middle and leg. What a start from the Universe Cross!. 7/2
32b to GL Adams, banged in, and plinked to short midwicket! Cross is having the night of her life. Quick runs with the bat and now three wickets in her first seven balls. Back of a length, into the pitch, and Adams miscues the pull straight to Jackson, who clings onto the catch in close. 36/4
Sophie Ecclestone20112311.150230
82b to M Kapp, stunning take and that's stumped! Ninja reflexes from Threlkeld! Attempted flick off the legs, topples forward as the ball eludes her intentions, and the keeper was waiting, poised, to whip off the bails!. 109/5
Laura Jackson1581611.063000
16b to FC Wilson, strikes first ball! Harmanpreet takes the catch at mid-off and the Originals are right on top. Full and straight to start from Jackson, and Wilson gave herself room, looking to hit over the infield, but Harmanpreet ran round and took a good catch, jumping to her right before flinging the ball up in celebration. 12/3
