Anya Shrubsole and Stafanie Taylor celebrate a wicket in Southern Brave’s win over Trent Rockets in The Hundred

Southern Brave beat Trent Rockets by 23 runs in their opening match of The Hundred at Trent Bridge – the first of four games on Saturday.

STORY OF THE MATCH

Southern Brave, having been put into bat by Rockets skipper Nat Sciver, didn’t get off to the best of starts, slipping to 14-3 after just 19 balls – Smriti Mandhana (0), Sophia Dunkley (6) and Danni Wyatt ( 7) all departing cheaply.

But West Indies batter Stafanie Taylor smashed an unbeaten 45 from 31 balls and Brave captain Anya Shrubsole came in and cracked 40 not out from 30 balls to lift her side up to a score of 133-5.

It wasn’t sure to be a match-winning total, especially when Sciver was at the crease for the Rockets. She struck eight boundaries in her 29-ball 44, but she and Katherine Brunt (22) fell within two balls of each other as the home side ultimately pulled up well short on 110-7.

MASSIVE MOMENT

The wicket of Sciver. It was a wonderful bit of bowling from seamer Lauren Bell (2-23), who took pace off the ball to deceive the batter, bowling the England allrounder.

Before that, the Rockets had needed a manageable 59 to win from the final 37 deliveries, with Sciver and Brunt in the midst of a 66-run partnership, but two balls later, Brunt was gone too – Taylor (1-26) picking up The wicket – and the Rockets’ hopes of victory quickly faded.

MATCH HERO

Taylor won Hero of the Match honors for her counter-attacking innings to dig the Brave out of the three-wicket hole they were in early on, while she also pitched in with the important wicket of Brunt.

Also, a special mention for Brave skipper Shrubsole. Not only did she play a crucial role with bat in hand, the England World Cup-winning seamer also took four wickets.

Shrubsole smashed five boundaries and one six in her enterprising innings, sharing in an unbroken 76-run partnership with Taylor.

She then picked up the wicket of opener Rachel Priest for four, before returning to snare Abigail Freeborn (10), Heather Graham (24) and Kathryn Bryce (0) in her final five. She finished with impeccable figures of 4-13 from her 20 balls.
