Alice Capsey featured on her return from injury as defending champions Hundred Oval Invincibles secured two out of three wins this season after outscoring the Trent Rockets by five wickets with one ball remaining…

History of the game

Capsey missed the Invincibles’ loss to Southern Brave on Sunday with an ankle injury but made her presence felt at Trent Bridge, contributing 24 of 18 after being involved in three of the wickets to go down the Rocket 112-8.

Two fours and sixes from the right-hander, coupled with New Zealand’s Suzie Bates’ 41-from-32, looked to give the Invincibles a win and the requirement was five balls from the last 10.

However, Rockets spinner Bryony Smith then took two wickets and conceded just three runs from the next eight deliveries, before Marizanne Kapp (34no of 27) carried the four winners over the midwicket.

With the ball, Capsey grabbed Marie Kelly (0) from her own bowling, chased Katherine Brunt (1) after dropping a hold on the stumps of the non-striker, then pocketed Sarah Glenn bowling from Eva Gray in as Rockets. lost five wickets in their last 16 balls.

Nat Sciver (59no of 48) had the top score for the Rockets but received no real support with Elyse Villani (17 of 16) the second top scorer.

Gray was the most prolific and economical member of the Invincibles offense, dismissing Mignon du Preez (10 of 11) as well as Glenn when she conceded just 16 points on her 20 balls, half of which were points.

In the chase, Invincibles went from 73-1 after 54 balls to 80-3 after 60 when Glenn represented Capsey and Bates – and they were still 80 after 70 balls when Alana King threw 10 straight point deliveries down the middle of digits from 0 -8 of its 20 balls.

Kapp then took over for the Invincibles, reaching four limits – one from Glenn and three from Sciver – before his fifth victory sealed after a late swing.
