Déjà vu as WA wins big again

WESTERN Australia has made it two big wins from as many games against the ACT, this time downing the Meteors by 10 wickets.

After bowling the Meteors out for only 171 halfway through the 39th over on Sunday, the West Australians reached the target in only 25 overs as both openers carried their bats.

Having won the toss and elected to bat, the Meteors lost their first wicket almost four overs in with only eight runs on the board, and it was truly a sign of was to come with only one partnership passing 50.

That single shining light was the fifth wicket stand between Carly Leeson and Olivia Porter, which garnered 82 runs. However, once Porter was dismissed things fell apart again as the Meteors lost 6-35 to close out the innings.

Unsurprisingly it was Leeson and Porter who were the top scorers for the Meteors, managing 50 and 41 runs respectively.

Meanwhile for Western Australia, Taneale Peschel bowled three maidens and took as many wickets in her 10 overs, while Zoe Britcliffe also bagged two wickets.

In reply, the West Australian openers certainly did not rush towards the tally, but still only needed half the overs available to them to eclipse it.

Chloe Piparo went on to smash 12 fours on her way to 79 (84), while partner in crime Maddy Darke hit the rope 11 times en route to an unbeaten 72 (69).

Leeson was the most economical of the Meteors’ bowlers in another tough outing, only conceding seven runs from her 2.4 overs. Holly Ferling (0-34) and Jannatul Sumona (0-31) featured more prominently and went at around a-run-a-ball.
