Lizelle Lee upstages Laura Wolvaardt to dent Northern Superchargers’ knockout hopes

Kate Cross takes three early wickets to peg back Covid-depleted Superchargers

Manchester Originals 127 for 2 (Lee 68) beat Northern Superchargers 126 for 5 (Wolvaardt 75 *, Cross 3-19)

Lizelle Lee fired Manchester Originals to an eight-wicket win at Headingley to dent Northern Superchargers’ hopes of reaching the women’s Hundred knockout stages.
The Originals opener hit a rapid 68 to help the visitors ease to their target of 127 with 14 balls to spare, after captain Kate Cross starred by taking three wickets.
Lee’s innings meant a superb unbeaten 75 from compatriot Laura Wolvaardt – who singlehandedly helped Superchargers post a competitive total – was in vain.

Superchargers are second in the table with one match to play, level on points with Trent Rockets and Oval Invincibles who both now have a game in hand.

Lee led the way as Originals set a blistering pace in the Powerplay, smashing 11 boundaries to reach 50 without loss after 25 balls, the highest Powerplay score of the women’s Hundred to date.
