hits the off stump, Shrubsole finishes it with her fourth and raises a fist triumphantly! Slower ball, I think, dipping under the cross-batted swipe. Brave's captain finishes with four-for, and the Rockets have been downed
1.35pm: Signs of purchase for spin in that match (which actually undid the home side in their chase). But it might well suit the Rocketmen, who also start their campaign against Brave in just under an hour, and will field a certain Rashid Khan in their XI. Matt will be firing up commentary shortly, so head over and join him for the build-up
1.30pm: Comprehensive win in the end for Brave, who recovered from 57 for 5 in their innings and then strangled the Rockets chase with Shrubsole marshalling her attack brilliantly. Nat Sciver could have taken it away but Lauren Bell claimed the key wicket at a pivotal moment; Bell picked up 2 for 23 from her 20, while Shrubsole and Wellington both conceded less than a run a ball. Still 130 remains a competitive score for the women
Hero of the Match is Stafanie Taylor: "Thought we did pretty well. Anya and I batted deep and got the team to a decent-enough total. We said we had to go hard at the end, but wanted to keep ticking over the strike. [Struggle for strike] Sometimes it's hard when you just come out, takes a while to get going. I trust Anya, so it was easy. Our fielding was great, we had to put that in to defend this total. [New team?] Most of these girls I know from Southern Vipers so that makes it easier."
