Mandhana falls for a low score again as Originals register maiden win

India T20I captain Harmanpreet Kaur did not take part in this game due to an injury

Manchester Originals register their first win of The Hundred after beating Southern Brave by 17 runs (DLS) at Old Trafford. Southern Brave managed to put up just 123 for 7 with Sophia Dukley (28) and Stafanie Taylor (28*) top-scoring for them.

For the Originals, fast bowler Hannah Jones was the pick of the bowlers, finishing with 3 for 17 from her 20 deliveries. Left-arm spinner Alex Hartley too finished with three scalps, but conceded 29 runs in her spell.

Southern Brave's 100% win record came to an end with this loss, but they still remain on top of the table with eight points from five matches. With this win, the Originals move to three points from five games and are currently in the seventh position in the points table. 

Since scoring an unbeaten 61 against Welsh Fire, India batter Smriti Mandhana has registered scores of 5, 3 and in this match, she managed just 19. Manchester Originals went into this match without Harmanpreet Kaur, who was out due to a quad niggle, paving way for Nat Brown.

The India T20I captain got off to starts n all her three games in the tournament, with scores of 29, 49* and 26, but have not been good enough to pull her side over the line. The Originals would love to have the middle-order batter back in their XI in the next game.

In pursuit of 130, Lizelle Lee (43*) and Emma Lamb (32) got Originals off to a good start, putting on 52 for the first wicket before the latter was run-out. However, Originals were not purturbed by that as Lee and Mignon du Preez went about their business with utmost ease.

After 70 balls into the chase, it started pouring down and the match did not resume, with Originals 17 runs ahead on the DLS rule.

Originals have a long break before they are in action again. They next take on London Spirit on Tuesday (August 10). Southern Brave, on the other hand, are back in action on Saturday (August 7) and they take on Northern Superchargers at the Rose Bowl.

Brief Scores:

Southern Brave Women 123 for 7 in 100 balls (Stafanie Taylor 28*, Sophia Dunkley 28; Jannah Jones 3 for 17) lost to Manchester Originals 97 for 1 in 70 balls (Lizelle Lee 43*, Emma Lamb 32) by 17 runs (DLS)
