WBBL: Smriti ton in vain as Renegades defeat Thunder

Sydney Thunder lost another game despite a magnificent century by Smriti Mandhana in a close game which the Melbourne Renegades won by 4 runs. Renegades batted first and piled up 175 runs and the Thunder had the chance till the last over but Mandhana couldn’t get them over the line.

Harmanpreet plays a brilliant knock

After losing two wickets for nine runs, Harmanpreet Kaur and Eve Jones put up 91 runs. Jones made 42 runs while Kaur played a superb knock of 81 runs in 55 balls and Jess Duffin cracked home 33 runs in 22 balls. Despite the mayhem, Samantha Bates returned figures of two wickets for 21 runs in four overs.

Smriti puts on a batting show

Mandhana pieced together praiseworthy innings making 114 runs in 64 balls but her efforts fell short in the end. The Thunder needed 13 runs in six balls but Harmanpreet Kaur once again dented Thunder’s plans, giving just 9 runs in her last over. Tahlia Wilson did make 38 runs but took 39 balls. Harmanpreet Kaur and Sophie Molineux went for just 27 runs in their four overs each with Kaur claiming a wicket.
