KSL Match Notes - Diamonds v Thunder

Game Two
Diamonds v Thunder
11th August 2017

* No Kate Cross (injury) or Sarah Taylor (family wedding) for Lancs Thunder

* Lancashire Thunder win the toss and field

* Chamari Atapattu and Lauren Winfield see Thunder to 37/0 in the first 6 over powerplay. Seems reasonable but this looks a good wicket.

* After 10 overs they have taken score to 64/0

* After 12 overs they are 72/1 with Atapattu gone for 41 off 38 balls. Nice start for the Sri Lankan.

* Sophie Devine 11 comes and goes quickly - 87/2 in 14th over

* Winfield goes in 15th over as Diamonds make it to 100/3. Looks like innings may be stalling, but....

*Katherine Brunt 31(16 balls) and Alice Davidson-Richards 22 (off 13 balls) add 52 off the next 25 balls before Brunt is bowled off last ball of 19th.

* Diamonds finish on 162/4


* Jenny Gunn does not take the field for Diamonds

* Steady start through Eve Jones and Emma Lamb, before Lamb is well caught by Devine in the last over of the powerplay for 20 (off 20). Thunder 34/1

* Davidson-Richards 18 (off 23) bowls Jones with the first ball of the 10th over - Thunder 59/2 and still in touch.

* Life becomes more difficult when Jess Jonassen 7 is caught in the deep halfway through the 12th over - Thunder 71/3

* Amy Satterthwaite 28 (off 26) goes in the next over (78/4) and the game is gone, but Thunder need 130 to prevent Diamonds from getting a bonus point win.

* Dani Hazell threatens briefly but is stumped for 10 - Thunder 89/5

* 16th over sees the end of Brown stumped as she pirouettes out of her crease - Thunder 97/6

* Tahuhu run out in 17th - 109/7

* But some lusty blows by Sophie Ecclestone (16*) and Ellie Threlkeld (18*) take Thunder to 134/7 off their 20 overs

** Alice Davidson-Richards is player of the match
