Sensational Kapp leads Oval Invincibles to inaugural Hundred title

South African all-rounder Marizanne Kapp claimed 4-9 and scored 26 off 14 balls as she led Oval Invincibles to The Hundred Women's title

South African all-rounder Marizanne Kapp claimed a sensational 4-9 and added a crucial 26 off 14 balls as Oval Invincibles clinched the inaugural Hundred Women's title on Saturday by beating Southern Brave by 48 runs.

After a slight rain delay, Brave's captain Anya Shrubsole won the toss and elected to bowl as she dismissed opener Georgia Adams off the 11th ball. Invincibles skipper Dane van Niekerk (26 off 29 balls) then combined Fran Wilson (25 off 29 balls) to add 56 runs in 50 balls before Amanda-Jade Wellington dismissed the latter. Five balls later, Van Neikerk was back in the hut when she was dismissed by a Gaby Lewis catch off Lauren Bell's bowling.

Kapp then combined with teenage all-rounder Alice Capsey (18 off 12 balls)  to add 34 off 21 balls. She returned back as the sixth wicket off the 93rd ball as the Invincibles finished 121/6 in 100 balls.

Kapp unleashed fire with her opening spell as Brave's top-three batters Dani Wyatt, Gaby Lewis and Sophia Dunkley were back in the pavilion without scoring a single run. Reeling at 2/3 after 10 balls, Brave never seemed to recover as they lost Maia Boucher (7), Wellington (0) and captain Shrubsole (1) for paltry scores. Morris (23 off  26 balls) and Stafanie Taylor (18 off 22 balls) were the only major contributors as they went from 14/6 to 63/9 by the 86th ball. Kapp wrapped up a sensational final performance by castling Lauren Bell (1) off the 98th ball as Invincibles' players celebrated.

Kapp was awarded the Player of the Match, while Invincibles' skipper Van Neikerk was the Player of the Tournament for her haul of 259 runs from nine innings at average of 43.16.
