百家爭鳴。奧瓦爾無敵隊擊敗南方勇士隊,贏得第二個冠軍

最後更新於.來自《百家講壇》一節

Oval Invincibles在Lord's再次戰勝Southern Brave,連續第二年贏得女子百人賽。

南非國腳Shabnim Ismail和18歲的英格蘭球星Alice Capsey各拿下兩隻小鳥,而17歲的旋轉器Sophia Smale也以26分將Sophia Dunkley擊退--這是勇敢者隊可怕的擊球順序的最高得分。

在一場創紀錄的女子國內比賽面前,無敵隊的追擊戰變得越來越緊張,但Marizanne Kapp引導無敵隊以六球之差取得了五門勝利。

這位南非人最後以37分未出局,而艾米莉-溫莎在被衝上球場的隊友們圍住之前,以13分未出局的成績完成了勝利。

特倫特火箭隊和曼徹斯特原創隊之間的男子決賽將在北京時間18:45開始,由於技術問題而被推遲。

卡普挺身而出,無敵隊背水一戰

這不是一場驚心動魄的擊球比賽,但卻成了一場適合這種場合的緊張比賽--到最後,勳爵球場幾乎座無虛席。

儘管卡普西得到了25分,但當溫莎和卡普在中間時,衛冕冠軍離勝利還有24分。

卡普是世界上最好的全能型選手之一,他扮演着經驗豐富的職業選手的角色,並與溫莎交談,以消除傳遞之間的緊張。溫莎將她的比賽生涯和BBC電台的評論工作結合起來,在任何時候都沒有顯得過於驚慌。

但是,儘管中間很平靜,其他地方的緊張氣氛卻很明顯。卡普的妻子丹恩-范尼克爾克(Dane van Niekerk)是去年無敵隊的隊長,她被排除在決賽的比賽名單之外,她站在洛德球場的陽台上,明顯地在緊張中掙扎。

卡普因為家庭內部的一場重病而錯過了今年夏天的英聯邦運動會,但她自始至終都很冷靜。

直到她在獲勝時刻後單膝跪地,這位32歲的老人明顯地情緒激動。

勇敢者可以說擁有女子比賽中最強大的陣容,但無敵者再一次取得了勝利。

無敵隊令人印象深刻的保齡球表現是一種真正的團隊努力。勇敢者隊的開局達到了33-0,然後火熱的伊斯梅爾緊緊抓住一個出色的接球,以15分的成績將丹妮-懷亞特淘汰。

伊斯梅爾作為女子比賽中最快的保齡球手之一而聞名於世,但下一個進球來自於17歲的索菲亞-斯梅爾--一個在三周前還很少有人知道的球員。

斯梅爾在大學12年級和13年級之間的假期中作為遲到的傷員替補參加了百人賽,她是今年比賽中的突圍明星之一。

這位左臂旋風選手已經養成了解僱大牌擊球手的習慣,並且還抓住了印度國腳斯姆里蒂-曼達納的頭皮,然後在慶祝時向看台上的祖父馬爾科姆揮手致意。

英格蘭隊隊長希瑟-奈特在BBC電台上說:"她進入板球的原因是她的祖父,"。"她的祖父將在這裡,這對她來說真的很特別。"

出生於紐波特的斯梅爾在 "百人賽 "中嶄露頭角,她正在追隨去年16歲的隊友卡普西的腳步。

現年18歲的卡普西是英格蘭國際隊的一員,她在她的英格蘭隊友開始運動的時候,抓住了索菲亞-鄧克利的關鍵球,兩球之後又抓住了喬治亞-亞當斯的頭皮,然後她又用球棒發揮了重要作用。

勇敢者再次落敗

勇敢者隊在周五的淘汰賽中也同樣緊張,儘管Nat Sciver為特倫特火箭隊放出了焰火,但他們還是獲得了決賽資格。

他們的陣容中充滿了國際人才,但就像他們去年以73分被保送出局一樣,在最大的場合沒有發揮出他們的最佳水平。

卡普西兩次被淘汰,關鍵是勇士隊還在一場低比分的比賽中漏掉了5個寬球和4個副攻。


Last updated on .From the section The Hundred

Oval Invincibles won the women's Hundred for the second year in a row with another victory over Southern Brave at Lord's.

South Africa international Shabnim Ismail and 18-year-old England star Alice Capsey took two wickets each while 17-year-old spinner Sophia Smale also dismissed Sophia Dunkley for 26 - the highest score from Brave's fearsome batting order.

The Invincibles' run-chase became increasingly tense, in front of a record crowd for a women's domestic match, but Marizanne Kapp steered the Invincibles to a five-wicket victory with six balls to spare.

The South African ended on 37 not out while Emily Windsor hit the winning runs to end unbeaten on 13 before being mobbed by her team-mates who rushed onto the field.

The men's final between Trent Rockets and Manchester Originals follows from 18:45 BST, having been delayed because of technology issues. • None Watch and follow live text & radio coverage of the Hundred finals • None Your women's team of the Hundred revealed • None Your men's team of the Hundred revealed

Kapp stands up as Invincibles go back to back

It was not a match of thrilling boundary hitting but became a suitably nervy match to suit the occasion - Lord's all-but full by the end.

Despite 25 from Capsey, the defending champions were still 24 runs away from victory when Windsor joined Kapp in the middle.

Kapp, one of the world's best all-rounders, played the role of experienced professional and talked Windsor through the tension between deliveries. Windsor, who combines her playing career with commentating on BBC radio, at no point looked overawed.

But despite the calm in the middle, the tension was clear elsewhere. Kapp's wife Dane van Niekerk, the Invincibles captain last year who was left out of the playing XI for the final, was on her feet on the Lord's balcony, visibly struggling with the nerves.

Kapp, who missed the Commonwealth Games earlier this summer because of a serious illness within her family, was cool throughout, however.

That was until she dropped to one knee after the winning moment, the 32-year-old visibly emotional.

Brave arguably have the strongest squad in the women's competition but once again it was the Invincibles who came out on top.

The Invincibles' impressive bowling performance was a real team effort. Brave's opening pair reached 33-0 before the fiery Ismail clung onto an excellent sprawling catch to dismiss Danni Wyatt for 15.

Ismail is known around the world as one of the women's games fastest bowlers but the next wicket came from 17-year-old Sophia Smale - a player few were aware of just three weeks ago.

Smale, playing in the Hundred as a late injury replacement in her holidays between Year 12 and 13 at college, has been one of the breakout stars of this year's competition.

The left-arm spinner has made a habit of dismissing big-name batters and added the scalp of India international Smriti Mandhana caught and bowled, before following a pumped-up celebration with a wave to her grandad Malcolm in the stands.

"The reason she got into cricket is her grandad," England captain Heather Knight said on BBC radio. "The fact her grandad was going to be here was really special for her."

In making her name in The Hundred, Newport-born Smale is following in the footsteps of team-mate Capsey who starred as a 16-year-old last year.

Now 18 and an England international, Capsey claimed the crucial wicket Sophia Dunkley, just as her England team-mate was starting to motor, and added the scalp of Georgia Adams two balls later before her important role with the bat.

Brave come up short again

Brave had been in a similarly tense eliminator on Friday when they qualified for the final despite Nat Sciver's fireworks for the Trent Rockets.

Their squad is packed with international talent but, as they did last year when being bowled out for 73, failed to bring their best on the biggest occasion.

Capsey was dropped twice and crucially the Brave also leaked five wides and four byes in a low-scoring match.
