After a couple of 50-over encounters, it is now time for the T20s in the Women’s Super Series in Ireland. The Pembroke Cricket Club in Sandymount, which hosted the one-day series, will also be the venue for the T20s.
Scorchers Women won both 50-over games. In the first Women’s Super Series game, Scorchers Women put up 221 while batting first before successfully defending the total. Although Typhoons Women were 110/5 at one stage, they built a partnership and were within touching distance of victory. However, the Scorchers bowlers tilted the game in their favor, winning the contest by 14 runs.
In the second Women’s Super Series game, Scorchers Women restricted Typhoons Women to just 208/9 before their batters, led by skipper Gaby Lewis, chased down the target with eight overs to spare.
Typhoons Women will be hoping that a change in format brings some change in their fortunes. Moreover, their batting line-up needs to deliver.
