5.50pm So, that's your lot for now. But the men's match is coming up imminently. Don't stray too far!

Marie Kelly is the Match Hero: "Having a consistent role has been great, I feel fully backed, I was waiting for an innings like that to come together. Be nice and aggressive and put the bowlers off. Staying a bit more still, back to basics, strong along the ground. I love batting at Headingley that wicket excites me. I like being in the action in the deep. Glad the catches stuck!"

5.41pm A powerful display from Superchargers, who are level on points with Southern Brave at the top of the table, and could be headed straight for Lord's if Brave trip up tomorrow. A superb batting display led by Marie Kelly was backed up by a pounding display from the bowlers in the Powerplay, and not even a deeply ropey fielding display could save Fire from a heavy loss. Kate Cross was superb as ever, leading the line alongside Lucy Higham, with Ballinger and ADR in the wickets too.

Davidson-Richards to Ismail, FOUR runs

a long-levered slap, off a leading edge, down through deep third for one final boundary, but it matters not!

Davidson-Richards to Ismail, no run

another single, it's all academic now

98

Davidson-Richards to Nicholas, 1 run

leaning onto the full length, pressed to mid-off. Nearly done here

full toss, outside off, chopped to cover, can't beat the field again

1
Cross to Ismail, 1 run

inswinger on a full length, drilled hard at mid-off. Cross's work is done, it's been a matchwinning spell

94
Cross to Ismail, no run

well bowled, a retreat to leg, Cross followed her on the full length from round the wicket, missed leg stump by a whisker

94
2nb
Cross to Ismail, (no ball)

short, super take from Heath in one hand, but deemed too high by the umpire

93
Cross to Ismail, no run

round the wicket, full toss, battered straight at cover with a grunt of frustration from Ismail

92
2
Cross to Ismail, 2 runs

flogged through the line, no real timing as the ball loops down to long-on, but they manage two at least, which is progress of sorts

91
1
Cross to Nicholas, 1 run

tapped into the on-side, another single. They need more than that

W
Ballinger to Ismail, OUT

reaches back for a hack into the off side, and somehow results in a run-out at the non-striker's end! Heath fumbles her take, they try to burgle a single off the misfield, but the shy from the keeper was true as Ballinger did the needful

Alex Griffiths run out (†Heath/Ballinger) 8 (5b 1x4 0x6 6m) SR: 160
89
W
Ballinger to Elwiss, OUT

cracked to mid-on! Elwiss tries to make room, but toe-ends her lofted intentions, Litchfield back-pedals to complete the catch. This one is nearly done now

Georgia Elwiss c Litchfield b Ballinger 13 (14b 1x4 0x6 22m) SR: 92.85

Ballinger to Griffiths, FOUR runs

hoisted behind square, and more loose fielding from Dobson, misreads the spin as the ball turns past her attempted slide

Alice Davidson-Richards 2/22 (15)
85
Davidson-Richards to Griffiths, no run

chases the wide one, might have been a faint under-edge on a wafty cut. A dot either way as the ball reaches the keeper on the bounce

84
1
Davidson-Richards to Elwiss, 1 run

eased into the covers on the front foot, good swooping pick-up at mid-off keeps the rate climbing

83
1
Davidson-Richards to Griffiths, 1 run

cracked off the back foot into the covers

82
W
Davidson-Richards to Davies, OUT

flicked off the legs, carries all the way to Kelly at backward square, and Superchargers strike again! Another fine take as that was actually pretty well timed. A few metres either side and that was four
