Sophie blitzes Velocity

Sharjah: Left-arm spinner Sophie Ecclestone grabbed four wickets for just nine runs in a sensational bowling display to help Trailblazers beat Velocity by nine wickets in their Women’s T20 Challenge match here today. Englishwoman Ecclestone, ranked No. 1 in the ICC T20 rankings, was supported by pacer Jhulan Goswami (2/13) and spinner Rajeshwari Gayakwad (2/13) as Trailblazers dismissed Velocity in 15.1 overs. Trailblazers then chased down the small target of 48 in just 7.5 overs with opener Deandra Dottin and Richa Ghosh remaining not out on 29 and 13, respectively. Ecclestone relentlessly attacked the stumps with her sliders to end with dream figures of 4/9 in 3.1 overs. Velocity, who beat Supernovas in the first match yesterday, put up a poor batting display today. Goswami ran through the top-order, and only three Velocity batters could reach double digits, with Shafali Verma (13) being the top-scorer. PTI
