  • VicSpirit through to WNCL semi-finals - VicSpirit
    thanks to an 82 run opening stand between Meg Lanning and Ellyse Villani Villani was first out trapped LBW for 39 from 53 deliveries followed later by her opening partner who posted 59 from 56 Jess Cameron was also in fine touch hitting the boundary seven times with one six en route to 59 from 64 A well played 35 from skipper Kelly Applebee and a pair of 27 s from Emma Inglis and Binch saw the VicSpirit home in what was a record breaking and memorable triumph finishing at 7 275 with nine deliveries remaining Breakers bowlers Nicola Carey and Kara Sutherland shared two wickets each VicSpirit coach Cathryn Fitzpatrick said the win was deserved after playing the game on their terms It was a good win we controlled a lot of the game she said It s been a long time since we have beaten them We felt we held them to a par score and that we would be in with a good chance we went about the chase well They got off to a really good start and we managed to hit back and taking 10 wickets was pleasing there were a few run outs as well which shows our training is paying off With the top four qualifying for the semi finals the VicSpirit chasing their first title in the one day format since 2004 05 currently sit in second place on the WNCL table but will have to wait until tomorrow to learn who their opponent will be The most likely scenario is a cut throat clash with Queensland on Friday but if the Fire can secure a double bonus point victory against Tasmania tomorrow they will jump to top spot and will face Western Australia and the VicSpirit will once again lock horns

  • Last roll of the dice - VicSpirit
    challenges from the VicSpirit attack Opener Leah Poulton was solid with 29 but were best served by skipper Alex Blackwell who led the way with six boundaries in her 51 VicSpirit young gun Kirsty Lamb bounced back in style with 3 20 from her four overs supported by the ever reliable Brianna Binch who picked up 2 35 and Emily McIntyre 1 33 Heading into the change of innings the VicSpirit were confident of chasing down the total set But the loss of early wickets which included openers Meg Lanning and Ellyse Villani had the home side on the back foot from the outset stumbling to 4 49 Lamb again led the way this time once with the willow as she struck 29 while Kelly Applebee was next best with 21 and Lanning 13 But two wickets from Breakers bowlers Lisa Sthalekar Sarah Coyte and Angela Reaves saw the home side struggle to 9 122 VicSpirit captain Emma Inglis said the side wasn t panicking following the match We know we can play a lot better we felt we got them under par with the ball going out to bat we were pretty confident to chase that down but some soft early wickets and lack of partnerships and too many dot balls put us behind the eight ball Inglis said With our bowling we probably bowled too many extras and were a bit sloppy in the field there is a few things to improve on but we weren t to far away we took a few positives out of today Sunday s WT20 match at the G is now a make or break game for the VicSpirit We need to win on Sunday and hope for other results to go our way were not out of it it s a

  • VicSpirit: A season in review - VicSpirit
    the attack in the back half of the season For Strano who hadn t bowled for the VicSpirit prior to the 2012 13 season it was a breakout year with 30 dismissals a new domestic record across WNCL and WT20 competitions After making her debut in the opening round Lamb not only established herself as an opening bowler by season s end with her aggressive left arm deliveries picking up 10 wickets but she also became the side s pinch hitter her WT20 strike rate of 153 65 a competition high There were several highlights during the summer none more breathtaking than the record total of 3 418 that the team racked up against South Australia in November On that day Elyse Villani struck an amazing 173 128 while Jess Cameron scored the fastest WNCL hundred in history with 128 68 Villani s innings which included six sixes fell two runs short of the highest WNCL score which opening partner Meg Lanning scored two weeks prior against ACT Meteors Lanning s record breaking knock which came from 143 deliveries and included 28 boundaries was the centrepiece of another brilliant season that saw her amass 803 runs Briana Binch was back to her best form during 2012 13 claiming 23 wickets for the year with her stump to stump bowling VicSpirit star Sarah Elliott was a notable absentee from the majority of the season after giving birth in October but she made a remarkable recovery to take her place in the side for the first semi final when she top scored with a classy 67 The side was led for the first time by two captains with Emma Inglis WT20 and Kelly Applebee WNCL splitting the duties Four VicSpirit players were chosen for the 2013 World Cup with Villani s fine

  • A sting in the tail for the Scorpions - VicSpirit
    but the pressure remained on SA s Lauren Ebsary and Kate Oakenfold who were occupying the crease The duo top scored for their side with 38 and 35 respectively leading their side to 4 120 at a run rate of six per over Lamb finished with 1 19 from her four overs with the ever reliable Brianna Binch the other wicket taker with 1 27 The SA total however was never with enough with Lanning s golden form continuing with ample support coming from Villani Lanning s dominance over the SA attack was highlighted by a half century from just 24 deliveries going on to crunch 70 from 37 balls in a knock which saw 12 boundaries and one maximum at a strike rate of just under 190 Villani was just as impressive striking seven fours and one six on her way to 50 from 39 balls at an SR of 128 The pair reached the required total finishing at 0 123 with over seven overs remaining VicSpirit WT20 captain Emma Inglis said it was a much improved effort from the girls today It was really good to be able to bounce back like that and have such a convincing win Inglis said To keep them to 120 was a pretty good effort on a good batting deck we bowled well but there is still some room for improvement but we kept it tight and got on top of a few of their batters Meg and Ellyse were great they were clinical and backed themselves with their shots I think the first ball if the innings went for four so that set the tone there was some great hitting by them Inglis said the win boosted the team s confidence for the remainder of the weekend s fixtures Going into

  • Lanning, Beams secure important win for VicSpirit - VicSpirit
    grass on the pitch but it looks pretty hard underneath so we re pretty happy to be batting first the VicSpirit captain said Lanning returned to the opening position for the crucial clash but the Victorians were jolted early by a brutal bouncer from Holly Ferling 1 30 that saw Elyse Villani retire hurt for 2 in the fourth over of the innings Despite the setback Lanning soldiered on for the away team looking in fine touch as she anchored the VicSpirit innings and brought up her 2000th WT20 career run She and Kelly Applebee 8 combined for a 50 run partnership for the second wicket but it was the Victorian captain who put on a show carting the Queensland bowling attack for ten fours and two sixes to lift the total to 2 110 in the 16th over Emma Inglis 22 and Nicole Bolton 19 both provided late innings cameos which saw Bolton score her 1000th WT20 career run as the VicSpirit set the Fire an intimidating total of 157 runs for victory In response Julie Hunter 1 5 struck in her first over to remove Grace Harris for 5 to get the Victorians off to a good start But a counter punching innings from Delissa Kimmence 34 saw her smash five fours in two overs to give the Fire s innings some momentum at 1 29 The introduction of Beams into the attack proved to be a key moment in the game for the Victorians as her crafty changes of pace and flight stifled the Queenslanders run scoring The wickets consequently fell as she dismissed Kimmence along with Beth Mooney 2 and Sammy Jo Johnson 12 to leave the home team reeling at 4 58 in the ninth over The Victorians took control thereafter as they collected 6
