Super 3s 2nd OD In Brief

Same Bat's "favourite player never to have played for England" - Sonia Odedra - had a day-to-remember with the ball, taking 5-42 as the Emeralds beat the Sapphires by 49 runs.

With Jenny Gunn rested (injured?) Lydia Greenway took the helm for the Emeralds and batted a captain's innings of 93, before being stumped by Amara Carr off the bowling of Sapphires skipper Heather Knight, with the Emeralds finishing on 312/4.

In reply, Heather Knight made 69 and Georgia Adams 87; but from 192/0 the Sapphires were sent back one-by-one by Odedra, who saw off Knight, Adams, Wilson, Elwiss and Dibble, to leave the Sapphires closing on 263/6, 49 runs short of their target.

  1. Odedra might hold the record for the most appearances for the Academy by an uncapped player. Who wants that record ?
    Have seen her bowl better but a 5-for is a 5-for. Well done.
    Greenway somehow managed to miss a ton when she had plenty of time to get it (dismissed of last ball of innings).
    Adams looked good.
    Wilson was brilliantly stumped by Jones.
    There were some sixes - yes some England qualified players can hit them. Wyatt's was probably the biggest.
    The Extras were something to behold - 76+42 so at least something made a ton !
    Got the feeling that winning the match wasn't the 'bee all and end all' of this contest, especially towards the end of the Sapphires innings. Only a trial after all.
