fired in straight, Brunt clunks an inside edge into her pads and jogs through forlornly - Superchargers win by 27 runs
5.50pm: The Northern lasses have started extremely well in this tournament, keeping the Trent Bridge crowd quiet - but Sciver will doubtless be wondering why she didn't review that lbw appeal against Rodrigues in Brunt's opening spell. Anyway, no time to dwell on that, as the Rocketmen are about to take the field, looking for a second win in a row; Ben Stokes' Superchargers are looking for their first points of the comp. Go get some. Bye!
5.40pm: Second impressive win in a row for Northern Superchargers, as home advantage fails Trent Rockets again. They gave themselves too much work to do, failing to take early wickets as Superchargers got away from them on the back of another Jemimah Rodrigues fifty. Nat Sciver looked in the mood for a takedown, but once she fell, the rate began to climb; Katherine Brunt was belligerent to the last but just couldn't find the ropes when needed.
Jemimah Rodrigues is Hero of the Match again: "When you're timing the ball well, make the most of it. I learned that while I was sitting out so just trying to extend the form. In the last game, I didn't get many balls in the Powerplay, today I wasn't timing it initially. The wicket was slow, but I knew if I stayed until the end I could make up for that, and then Laura came in and hit [several] boundaries and that took the pressure off. [Settling in?] Not a new group, because I was with most of them in 2019. It's like family, in the team meetings we discussed going out to have fun. Mumbai wickets have helped me playing spin."
clubbed into a gap between long-on and deep midwicket, Armitage slides to cut it off well
floated up very full, Freeborn advances and chips it down to long-on
angled in, crack of the bat as she heaves to deep midwicket, just one
dobbed on the stumps and Brunt swipes it impotently into the covers
Smith to bowl the final five. Official attendance for the women's game today is 6,721, by the way
tossed up and this time Freeborn does get the sweep away for one
floated up full on the stumps, this time she's hit on the forearm sweeping... Not given but Superchargers review, how close was this? Plenty of dip and bounce and Hawk-Eye has it going over
floated up full and wide, Freeborn heaves across the line and misses
Abi Freeborn in at No. 9
flighted and it grips as Bryce clears the front leg... skews a top edge into the covers! She had to swing for the fences, but it goes straight to hand. Big of a celebratory jig from Levick. Superchargers nearly there
lobbed up legbreak, 46mph and is slides through to the keeper as Bryce flails at it
Last 10, Rockets need boundaries. Levick to bowl
stomps down and mullers four through midwicket! Nearly took the fielder with it... Brunt is not happy! Can she channel that fury?
another change-up from ADR and Brunt fails to connect with an almighty yahoo!
"@Amit: half century from Kirk and 4 wickets for Graves set up Lightning to beat Sunrisers recently," reports Edmund Thomas. Surely no need to hide Kirk down in the tail, then?
shortish outside off, Bryce slaps a cut through the ring
Katherine Bryce is in
tries to smash her off a length, ends up skying the ball straight up! Legcutter from Davidson-Richards, she's bowled that well today, flummoxes the batter as she swung across the line and it went nowhere, Winfield-Hill walking up to bag the catch right by the stumps
tad short on the stumps, swung behind square for one
backs away, but Russell isn't falling for it and bowls in the channel... Brunt topples over trying to reach it, and then sits frowning at the umpire. Winfield-Hill broke the stumps as she went down, too. Imagine Brunt's face if she had been stumped there
Graves attempts to come down, Russell digs it in short, spliced down towards long-on on the bounce
length, another cutter, Graves is back and across but picks out cover
full toss but Brunt can't get it away, clubbed down to long-on for one
