The former West Indies international had three sixes in a row against Superchargers left-arm spinner Linsey Smith as the Originals smoked 69 runs from their last 25 deliveries to go 160-3 on their 100 balls.

With 20 balls remaining in the Superchargers’ shot, that total seemed sufficient – ​​but Wolvaardt (90no from 49) then hit six of the next seven balls she faced for the limits to leave her side needing 16 from 10.

That became 11 from five after a tight set from Originals skipper Kate Cross with Dottin playing the final five deliveries.

Unfortunately, the Originals hero with the bat then kicked a no-ball, missed the chance to wear down Heather Graham and was drilled for four by Wolvaardt, before the 99th innings ball was deflected by Graham to leave. -pass match winners.

The Superchargers’ win was their second in four games, while the Originals – sort of – slipped to a third of four defeats.

Australian flyhalf Alyssa Healy contributed 25 from 18 for the Superchargers before Wolvaardt anchored the chase and then ignited in the final leg of the game, firing fours and sixes over Ecclestone, Lea Tahuhu and Dottin to win a stunning victory and delight the local fans.

What They Said – Dottin was “brutal”

Sky Sports’ Lisa Shalekar: “It was crazy. It’s amazing what Dottin can do when she’s ready. She was brutal against Smith but also against bowling. Every time the bowlers were around the stump, she would explode right on the floor or on the side of the leg.”

Lydia Greenway of Sky Sports: “Dottin has a high backswing. You’ll often see the toe of her bat pointing skyward and that gives her the best chance to hit the ball hard. She also clears her front leg but not too much and that gives her the full swing arc to go straight or sideways.”
