Shabnim Ismail to Meg Lanning FOUR! STREAKY! That wasn't too far away from Jo Johnson there. Short and wide outside off, Lanning goes after it. It takes the top edge and flies towards third man. Sammy there runs forward and dives to try and catch but it bounces ahead of her and evades to go to the fence.
Shabnim Ismail to Mignon du Preez On middle, du Preez tucks it towards mid-wicket and gets to the other end.
Shabnim Ismail to Mignon du Preez Play and a miss! Time for du Preez to get rattled it seems. Outside off on a good length, she tries to force it on the off side but misses.
Shabnim Ismail to Meg Lanning Shortish and outside off, it is pushed down to third man for one.
Shabnim Ismail to Mignon du Preez Du Preez is up and running on the first ball. Good length ball around off, du Preez looks to defend but the ball takes the inner half and goes to square leg. A single.
Shabnim Ismail to Elyse Villani OUT! TAKEN! There's the first wicket. Villani's horrid stay out in the middle is cut short by Ismail. She lures her with a juicy full ball outside off, Villani goes for the drive but she ends up hitting it uppishly and straight to the cover fielder. Haynes, the Thunder skipper, is not going to put this one down. Perfect start for the Thunder here.
