The Hundred 2021: Thursday August 5th 

 

The Hundred Women’s Competition

 

Manchester Originals v Southern Brave, Emirates Old Trafford 3:30pm

Manchester Originals (Women) vs Southern Brave (Women), 19th Match

Manchester Originals (Women) 97/1 (13.5 ov)

Southern Brave (Women) 123/7 (20 ov)

Result - Manchester Originals (Women) won by 17 runs (D/L method)

Lizelle Lee smashed a superb 43 not out to fire bottom side Manchester Originals to a shock 17-run DLS win over women’s Hundred pacesetters Southern Brave at Emirates Old Trafford.

The Originals, chasing 124, won their first match at the fifth attempt, while the Brave’s bid for a fifth straight win was halted in murky Manchester conditions.

Brave lost four late wickets for five runs in seven balls, undermining their bid for more than 123 for seven having been inserted.

South African Lee shared 52 in 38 balls with Emma Lamb to set the tone for the chase and completed the job once her opening partner had fallen, finishing with four fours and a six in 32 balls. When heavy rain arrived, the Originals were 97 for one, needing only 27 more from 30 balls.

Each of the Brave’s top four made valuable contributions on a true pitch. 

Sophia Dunkley and Stefanie Taylor made 28 apiece after 24 and 19 for openers Danni Wyatt and Smriti Mandhana.

For the Originals, impressive Hannah Jones and Alex Hartley claimed three wickets apiece to upstage fellow left-arm spinner, England’s wicketless Sophie Ecclestone.

Wyatt and Mandhana shared a brisk opening stand of 34 and hit four boundaries apiece in their respective innings. Over cover was a productive area.

But the Brave’s early good work was wasted by the late collapse as the score fell from 113 for three after 88 balls to 118 for seven after 96.

Hartley had Maia Bouchier caught at cover and Amanda-Jade Wellington lbw with successive deliveries before Jones and Kate Cross also shared two wickets in two balls.

Hartley finished with three for 29 and Jones three for 17 from their respective 20 balls.

In reply, England hopeful Lamb was the early dominant force with 32 off 23.

She crashed five boundaries and was particularly strong square either side of the wicket before running herself out when she pushed to cover and was the victim of a direct hit at the non-striker’s end from Anya Shrubsole - 52 for one after 38.

The experience of Mignon du Preez then joined her compatriot Lee as runs continued to flow.

When Lee hoisted Charlotte Taylor’s spin over long-on for the first of two sixes in the match, the Originals were 76 for one, needing 48 more with 46 balls remaining.

Shortly afterwards, Du Preez - 15 not out - lofted Wellington’s leg-spin over long-on for six. But there was only time for two more balls, with them sharing an unbroken 45.

Manchester Originals captain Kate Cross said: “When you start the tournament with three losses and don’t get an opportunity to win the fourth because of rain, there’s a lot of pressure.

“But I just loved the way we went about our cricket today. That was what pleased me the most. When you’re losing, it would be easy to go into your shell even more.

“The way Lamby and Lizelle batted was outstanding.

“We had a chat on Monday and said, ‘We’ve got nothing to lose now. Let’s not worry about failing because the more you worry about that, the more likely you are to fail’. We just took the shackles off.

“We’ve kind of joked about it, but we are just aiming to start again. We saw this as our first game. Hopefully we can get on a roll and win a couple of games. It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.”

 

Southern Brave captain Anya Shrubsole said: “We felt we were probably out 15-20 runs light, especially from the position we were in. We needed someone to go on and get 40 or 50. That would have got us to 140, which was about par on that pitch.

“I didn’t think we bowled particularly well. We bowled two sides of the wicket, and you will get punished against quality players like Lizelle.

“We just weren’t quite with it with bat, ball and in the field.

“We’ve just said in the dressing room that we’re still in a really good position. The worst thing you can do after one defeat is panic. 

“We’ve got an opportunity to put that right on Saturday (Northern Superchargers at the Ageas Bowl).”

 

The Hundred Men’s Competition

 

Manchester Originals v Southern Brave, Emirates Old Trafford 7:00pm

 

The men’s Hundred clash between Manchester Originals and Southern Brave ended in a No Result as rain limited play to only 71 balls at Emirates Old Trafford. 

The inclement weather arrived towards the end of the women’s game earlier in the evening and delayed a scheduled 7pm start by 45 minutes.

Both sides’ fifth fixture of the competition was reduced to 90 balls per side, with Brave winning the toss and electing to bowl first. 

The Originals reached 36 for two before a 10-minute delay from 8pm reduced the game further to 85 balls per side. And they later reached 98 for three for 71. Unfortunately, there was no play beyond 8.50pm. 

This was the Originals second No Result, and they have moved into a three-way tie on six points at the top of the table alongside Birmingham Phoenix and Trent Rockets. The Rockets have only played four.

For the Brave, they have moved to five points courtesy of their first No Result added to two wins and two defeats.

New Zealand batsman Colin Munro pulled Chris Jordan for six over midwicket in an unbeaten 41 off 28 balls, while there were wickets for Tymal Mills, Jordan and the left-arm wrist spin of Jake Lintott.

Jordan’s first three balls had all gone for four from the blade of Sussex team-mate Phil Salt, but he had him caught behind next ball to leave the score at 36 for two after 24.

Earlier, Mills had bowled Joe Clarke with his first ball and Liam Dawson suffered a suspected dislocated finger on his right hand having been struck in his follow through by a fierce Salt drive.

Lintott’s wicket was that of Colin Ackermann caught at long-on - 54 for three after 42.

Left-handed Munro was moving the Originals towards a competitive total before rain ruled.
