Cricket South Africa’s Professional Women’s Domestic T20 League enjoyed another thrilling live action encounter when the Six Gun Grill Garden Route Badgers defeated hosts Hollywoodbets Dolphins in Durban on Sunday 17 March. 

With a delayed start and the match being reduced to 14 overs, the Dolphins Women chose to have a bat first. 

Tabitha la Grange was the thorn in the side of the Dolphins with her destructive bowling spell of 3/5, she was well-supported by Annerie Dercksen, who contributed with 2/6 as the Badgers restricted the Dolphins to 45/9 in their innings.

In a nail-biting thrill fest, the Badgers chased down the target with one ball to spare, with Michaela Andrews providing those heart-topping moments in the end. 

Nonkululeko Mlaba put in a stellar performance for her home team with figures of 2/7, but it was not enough, as the Badgers won by 5 wickets. 

In the weekend’s sole division two tie, Eastern Cape Iinyathi beat Kei Women by 10 wickets at Buffalo Park East London.

Kei opted to have bat first after winning the toss, but Asaphila Jani (16) was the only player to reach double figures as Kei posted an under-par 43/6 in their allotted overs. 

Eastern Cape comfortably chased down the target in the 6th over, Genevieve Fritz (32*) and Siyamanga Mhletywa (6*) steering their team home for the win by 10 wickets and the weekend double.
