Hayley Matthews’ fluent 71* leads Welsh Fire to first win


Manchester Originals still winless despite Sophie Ecclestone’s all-round efforts

Welsh Fire 124 for 1 (Matthews 71*, Redmayne 38*) beat Manchester Originals 120 for 6 (Ecclestone 31*) by X wickets

Welsh Fire’s women claimed their first win of the Hundred thanks to an excellent effort in the field and an impressive innings of 71 from Hayley Matthews as they defeated Manchester Originals in Cardiff.
The Fire won the toss and put the Originals into bat. The Originals reached 120 for 6 from their 100 balls with Sophie Ecclestone top-scoring with a late-innings flourish of 31 not out off 15 balls.

The Fire got their innings off to a fantastic start thanks to Matthews who once again hit powerfully down the ground, and reached their target with nine wickets and 12 balls to spare. This defeat means the Originals are still to claim a win in the tournament.
