King’s 21 helps Adelaide win second straight

first_imgADELAIDE, Australia (CMC):All-rounder Stacy-Ann King shone, albeit briefly, but her Adelaide Strikers were still strong enough to beat West Indies teammate Deandra Dottin’s Perth Scorchers by 35 runs in the Women’s Big Bash here on New Year’s Eve.Opting to bat first at Adelaide Oval, the hosts rattled up 135 for six off their 20 overs, with King stroking a run-a-ball 21 in a 50-run opening stand with Sarah Taylor who top-scored with 48 off 37 balls.King struck three fours before perishing in the seventh over, leg before wicket to left-arm seamer Katie-Jane Hartshorn who finished with two for 20.Sophie Devine chipped in with a run-a-ball 32, posting 41 for the third wicket with Taylor.In reply, the Scorchers were dismissed for 100 in the last over, to lose their third straight game in the inaugural tournament.Jenny Wallace struck 29 from 33 deliveries but no other batsman managed to make it past 15.Dottin looked to be getting into stride when she stroked three boundaries in reaching 13 off 11 balls but was third out in the fifth over with the score on 30.Fast bowler Megan Schutt (3-11) and 18-year-old seamer Amanda Wellington (3-13) both wrecked the innings with incisive spells as Strikers won their second straight.last_img read more
