A dogged effort by Short and Dottin sees Brisbane Heat turn the tables A hard-hitting innings from Deandra Dottin has helped Brisbane Heat end Perth Scorchers' early-
season form with a six-wicket win over the Rebel WBBL leaders in Brisbane. The Heat tallied 4-116 in reply to the Scorchers 7-112 on Friday, with the Perth side unable to reprise their opening form, which included a massive victory over reigning champions Sydney Sixers.
Earlier, the Scorchers all-star batting line-up failed to fire slipping to 5-59. Only some judicious stroke-play from middle-order pair Katherine Brunt (29)
and Mathilda Carmichael (22) rescued the Scorchers. With two wins from three matches the Scorchers maintain a three-way share of top spot, while the Heat boast one win from two outings.
Brisbane Heat Women (Playing XI): Kirby Short(c), Beth Mooney(w), Laura Wolvaardt, Deandra Dottin, Delissa Kimmince, Laura Harris, Jess Jonassen, Sammy-Jo Johnson, Haidee Birkett, Jemma Barsby, Holly Ferling
Perth Scorchers Women (Playing XI): Elyse Villani(c), Nicole Bolton, Heather Graham, Natalie Sciver, Katherine Brunt, Lauren Ebsary, Mathilda Carmichael, Thamsyn Newton, Emily Smith(w), Piepa Cleary, Emma King
Ajinkya Rahane’s father, his mother and sister were on their way for a vacation before the accident took place. There was a crowd that gathered around the car immediately before the woman was rushed to a nearby hospital but the accident was fatal and she died as a result of the injuries suffered. The Kolhapur Police have reportedly registered a case under IPC Act 304A, 337, 338, 279 and 184.
Ajinkya Rahane isn't with his family at the moment as he is currently part of the Indian ODI team, who are playing Sri Lanka in the three-match ODI series. Rahane has not played in the first two ODIs but the series is level at 1-1 and the decider will take place at Visakhapatnam on Sunday.
