Lanning XII clean sweep rebel WBBL Under 19 Exhibition Series
The Lanning XII has completed a whitewash of the Perry XII in the rebel WBBL Under 19 Exhibition Series, claiming victory in all three Twenty20s in Canberra over the weekend.
An unbeaten 61 off 59 balls from Queenslander Sienna Ginger was the catalyst for the Lanning XII's first win of the weekend on Saturday morning, her side's 3-135 proving too much for the Perry XII who could only muster 8-121 in reply.
Jade Allen (2-13) and Jasmine Nevin (2-12) were best with the ball for the victorious side, while Molly Healy was best with the bat for the Perry XII with 48 off 43 balls.
After a 14-run win in the first match, the Lanning XII put on a dominant display in game two on Saturday afternoon to win by 75 runs. Again batting first, the Lanning XII posted 4-148 thanks largely to Caitlin Mair (45*) and Emma de Broughe (46*).
The Perry XII were on the back foot early with opener Lucy Cripps (0) dismissed in the first over. Things went from bad to worse with two run outs to Mair and as many wickets to Charli Knott (2-12), the Perry XII stumbling to 5-19 in the seventh over.
Lilly Mills (33) fought hard for her side but couldn't find the support she needed, the Perry XII all out for 73 in the final over.
The Perry XII put on an improved performance with the bat in the final game earlier today, posting 3-104 with Courtney Sippel (44*) and Ryleigh Wotherspoon (32) doing the bulk of the scoring.
The Lanning XII made short work of the chase however, reaching the total in the 15th over. Sienna Ginger (48*) put on another impressive display with the bat while Knott (32) provided good support.
Ahead of the weekend selectors named Olivia Henry, Ananaya Sharma, Ryleigh Wotherspoon, Jasmine Nevins and Olivia Porter in place of Stella Campbell, Phoebe Litchfield, Hannah Darlington, Tess Flintoff (WBBL comittments) & Georgia Gall (injury).
