Dottin's match-winning knock overshadows Rodrigues' 57 as Spirit beat Superchargers

India all-rounder Deepti Sharma finished with figures of 1 for 19 from her 20 deliveries

India batter Jemimah Rodrigues scored her third fifty in four innings in The Hundred, but it was not good enough London Spirit Women eased past Northern Superchargers Women by seven wickets. Her 44-ball 57 propelled Superchargers to 126 for 5. 

Deepti Sharma, Spirit all-rounder picked up the wicket of Alice Richards but did not get a chance to bat as Deandra Dottin (50* off 34) and Tammy Beaumont (42 off 36) stole the show.

This is a huge win for the Spirit as they win their second game of the season, bringing an end to their run of three consecutive losses. The Superchargers, on the other hand, had a chance to go top of the table, but find themselves in second place with seven points from five matches. 

After electing to bat first, the Superchargers never got any momentum in their innings as they kept losing at regular intervals. Only Laura Wolvaardt (22) and Alice Richards (22).  A couple of powerful strokes in the end by Laura Kimminice (15* off 6) gave her side a respectable total.

In reply, Spirit lost Naomi Dattani (8 off 7) and skipper Heather Knight (16 off 14) with still 76 required off 59 deliveries when Dottin walked into bat. She wasted little time to get into the groove as her maiden fifty of the tournament sealed the game for London Spirits. 

She was also well supported by Tammy Beaumont, with whom she put on a crucial stand of 56 off 46 for the third wicket.  

Both teams have some time to reflect on their campaign ahead of their next game as the Spirit take on Manchester Originals in their next fixture on August 10, while Superchargers play Southern Brave on August 7.

Brief scores: 

Northern Superchargers Women 126 for 5 in 100 balls (Jemimah Rodrigues 57, Laura Wolvaardt 22; Sophie Munro 2 for 20) lost to London Spirit Women 129 for 3 in 98 balls (Deandra Dottin 50*, Tammy Beaumont 42; Linsey Smith 2 for 15)

Player of the match: Deandra Dottin
