This winning feeling didn’t last long. Tasmania has just beaten NSW by an innings and 1 run on day 3 of their match.
That’s an unusual scoreline… it’s almost as if NSW decided not to try and score any more runs so they didn’t have to bowl again just for a few balls when there was no chance of them winning, or a draw.
Watching it, it did seem like a genuine one but I was wondering how it would be if Tasmania did need to bat and only needed something like half a dozen runs about whether they would do a full innings break or whether it would have to wait until the morning etc…
I think normally they can extend for 30 mins, but not past that, and then have to come back the next day, even if just for a few balls… it’s usually free entry in that situation.
The 2023 Cricket World Cup team of the tournament has been revealed.
Toyota “Toblerones” out on the boundary ropes today. Would this be the first time for a stand-alone WBBL game? Did they use them at the Adelaide Oval on Friday night?
Good thing about playing at the SCG is that the already small boundaries that are brought in for the women don’t look so far in. Aesthetically looks a lot better.
Time for me to eat some humble pie too - our winning feeling didn’t last long. NSW won a second game yesterday and also gave Tasmania their first defeat in this year’s Shield comp.
The Adelaide Strikers have won back to back WBBL titles with an exciting 3 run win over the Brisbane Heat.
Adelaide’s total of 5/125 when batting first looked to be below par, but they bowled and fielded really well to keep taking Heat wickets regularly and restrict them to 8/122.
And now a hat trick of finals losses by 4 points or less for Brisbane teams this year.
Yep… and Brisbane Lions play the Kangaroos in the AFLW Grand Final tomorrow. This could be a really strange year for Brisbane. Great to reach all the Grand Finals but to come away with no wins from any of them would be quite something.
Great, tight finish to the game though. Was great to watch.
Agree, closer than pretty much any game in the recent ICC Men’s World Cup!
I’ll be honest though, I only watched until the basketball was on and then after that finished. As a consolation to any Brisbane fans - Tasmania did smash Adelaide for their highest winning margin and Adelaide equaled their lowest ever score so it wasn’t all great for the city of churches.
Another loss to Brisbane in a major championship
Gos… Johnson is a little bitch.
Johnson’s not wrong, though he probably didn’t have to rip into ex-teammates so publicly.
