Cricket World Player of the Week - Marizanne Kapp
Player of the Match in The Women's Hundred Final, Marizanne Kapp would be in contention to be the best all-rounder in women's cricket if not for her unfortunate health.
Marizanne Kapp represented Oval Invincibles in The Women's Hundred and was right on the money whenever she played - though she could only represent the team in five matches.
After having a great first match, where she scored 38 and picked up two wickets while conceding 20 runs, Marizanne Kapp played her next match after a gap of three weeks, but she delivered for the team when they needed it the most.
The Oval Invincibles were successful in reaching the Final after beating Birmingham Phoenix in the Eliminator, with Kapp scoring 37 runs and picking up three wickets. She had an encore in the Final as the South African all-rounder made 26 with the bat and took four wickets while conceding just nine runs.
Understandably, she was over the moon after guiding her side to the maiden Women's Hundred trophy.
"First of all, I would like to thank Jesus Christ. I was tired when I went out to bowl. Luckily the pitch suited my bowling. I mentioned yesterday, whoever won yesterday was going to win today and luckily it was us. We had a brilliant team. Everyone put up their hands and performed and I would like to thank my team. I would love to bowl here again, moved quite a bit. As soon as I got my first wicket, I knew if I just stuck to my strengths, I would get a few wickets."
It is a pity that we don't see enough of Marizanne Kapp, with her health not supporting her at key moments.
