Wyatt’s blitz, Bismah’s 51* take Amazons to 200+ for second time in row

RAWALPINDI: Skipper Bismah Maroof scored his second consecutive fifty to help Amazons set a massive 219-run target against Super Women in the final exhibition match of the Women’s League on Saturday. 

Amazons piled up 200-plus runs for the second day in a row, surpassing their previous 204-run total on Friday.

Electing to bat first, opener Danii Wyatt once again led the charge at the top before captain Bismah smashed an unbeaten 51 from 36 balls to steer Amzons to 218/6 in the 20 overs.

Wyatt put on a stellar show early on, smashing seven fours and two sixes before perishing inside the powerplay, seven short of another astounding fifty.

Opener Eyman Fatima too joined the party this time and hit four boundaries during her colourful stand of 16-ball 19 but left the crease soon after the lifting of fielding restrictions.

Bismah and Tammy Beaumont then anchored the Amazons’ innings in the middle overs and gathered 67 runs before spinner Tuba Hasan dismissed the English batter in the 14th over.

Beaumont had a cautious knock of 26-ball 39, laced with five fours and a six, while her successor Maia Bouchier made a quick 21 from 10 balls before a slower one from Aiman Anwar knocked her down.
