R Sai Kishore the bowling star for the champions as his 3 for 12 helps restrict Karnataka to 151 for 7

Tamil Nadu 153 for 6 (Jagadeesan 41, Shahrukh 33*, Cariappa 2-23) beat Karnataka 151 for 7 (Manohar 46, Dubey 33, Sai Kishore 3-12) by four wickets

Another Karnataka vs Tamil Nadu Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy final. Another last-ball thriller. After suffering a heart-breaking one-run defeat in 2019 in Surat, Tamil Nadu snatched victory this time in Delhi, thanks to a blockbuster last-ball six from their designated finisher M Shahrukh Khan.

With five needed off the last ball, Shahrukh picked up a full ball from left-arm seamer Prateek Jain and smote it over the square-leg boundary, powering Tamil Nadu to the title and underscoring his status as one of the best finishers in Indian domestic cricket.

When Shahrukh had entered at 95 for 4 in a chase of 152, his captain Vijay Shankar and vice-captain N Jagadeesan had holed out off successive balls and the asking rate had ballooned past 12. Shahrukh, however, pricked it quickly, shellacking three fours and a six in his unbeaten 15-ball 33.

Upon hitting the winning runs, Shahrukh swiped his bat and gloves away and sprinted off, towards square leg, until he was finally stopped in his tracks by his team-mates.

Jhye Richardson struck late in the day to boost Western Australia

Tasmania 2 for 210 (Jewell 102, Ward 86) trail Western Australia 9 for 405 dec (Whiteman 176*, Short 67, Philippe 53) by 195 runs

Caleb Jewell notched a second career first-class century as Tasmania fought back in their Sheffield Shield clash against Western Australia in Hobart.

He was out for 102 in the shadows of stumps on day two at Bellerive Oval as Tasmania reached 2 for 210 in reply to 9 for 405.

Jewell put on a 197-run opening stand alongside rookie Tim Ward, who fell late in the day to in-form fringe Test quick Jhye Richardson.

In another lion-hearted display, Richardson had Jewell caught at point in the final half hour of play, backing up his eight wickets for the match in WA’s convincing win over Queensland.

“We hung in there and showed a bit of fight which was good,” Jewell, who was dropped several times, told reporters. “I got a couple of breaks, which is nice. There are times when you’re pretty unlucky in cricket, so I just wanted to make the most of it.”

Test allrounder Cameron Green was the most economical WA bowler, with his eight overs going for eight runs. WA are likely to be a player down for the remaining two days, with quick Lance Morris suffering a side strain.

Earlier, WA captain Sam Whiteman finished unbeaten on 176, his highest first-class score and eighth career century. Whiteman, who has taken the reins in the absence of injured veteran Shaun Marsh, resumed on 151 and passed his previous best of 174 in a 309-ball knock that included 20 fours and one six.

“I haven’t had the start to the season I would have liked. To go on a get a big score was pleasing…the team really needed it,” Whiteman said.

Richardson couldn’t add to his overnight score of 43 before Whiteman declared about 45 minutes from lunch. Tasmanian quicks Lawrence Neil-Smith and Gabe Bell both finished with three scalps, while veteran Peter Siddle picked up two tailenders.

Whiteman, who played for Australia A seven years ago, posted his eighth first-class century on Sunday to help dig ladder leaders WA out of a spot of bother at 4 for 47.

WBBL 2021 – Jess Jonassen pushes Georgia Redmayne’s Australia case

Published

News

The Brisbane Heat keeper-batter has had another impressive season

Jess Jonassen believes her Brisbane Heat team-mate Georgia Redmayne should be in the Australia side after another prolific WBBL campaign where she has excelled in front and behind the stumps.

Redmayne, who has yet to be capped at international level, made 436 runs at 36.33 in the regular season while claiming a tournament-leading 17 dismissals with the gloves to help Heat into the finals where they will face Adelaide Strikers in the Eliminator on Wednesday.

She was part of the Australia squad for the multi-format series against India earlier in the season but could not break into the XI even when Rachael Haynes was ruled out with injury. She will again be pushing hard for inclusion when the selectors pick an Ashes squad in January.

“Being a fellow Queenslander, she should be in that side,” Jonassen said. “She was part of the series against India and my opinion she is probably the form keeper-batter in the competition at this stage. It’s no surprise to anyone in the Brisbane Heat set-up with the amount of work she has put in.”

Her leg-side stumping to remove Ella Hayward against Melbourne Renegades was one of the standout moments of the competition. Redmayne credited the work she had done with former England keeper Sarah Taylor while with Welsh Fire in the Hundred with Taylor noting her excitement at the piece of work on Twitter.

“I was at mid-off and it was incredible. She’s tidied up a few of those balls down the leg side and that stumping was probably one of the quickest I’ve seen,” Jonassen said. “It’s really exciting for us that she’s producing the level of cricket that we know she’s capable of and it’s no surprise.”

Heat and Strikers will have to take the long route if they want to claim the WBBL title. The winner of their match faces Melbourne Renegades in the Challenger final on Thursday to decide who takes on Perth Scorchers at Optus Stadium on Wednesday. Of the four sides still in contention only the Heat are previous winners.

Jonassen had no qualms about facing Strikers on their own patch despite finishing above them in the table. Renegades, who finished second, nominated Adelaide as their preferred venue for the Challenger final with border restrictions meaning Melbourne wasn’t an option.

“It’s probably a good thing for us that we will be playing against the Strikers,” Jonassen said. “There will be a really good atmosphere. Sometimes you can use that to your advantage if you are the away side and use it to fuel the drive to come out on top.

With South Australia’s borders opening to Victoria on Tuesday it means friends and family of players from the state should be able to travel for the Challenger.

“Not being able to get to Victoria wasn’t ideal but with the borders opening, get some family over here and it will feel like home I think,” Renegades captain Sophie Molineux said. “A lot of us haven’t been home for a long time so just being able to see parents, sisters, brothers, partners, it’s a bit of a motivator for us. Will be really cool over the next few days to reengage with them and hopefully have them at the ground.”
