WBBL: Shafali Verma, Radha Yadav, Richa Ghosh register impressive performance

Shafali was named Player of the Match for scoring 57 as Sixers beat the Hurricanes by 5 wkts

It was a fine Saturday for the Indian contingent at the Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) as all of Shafali Verma, Richa Ghosh, Radha Yadav and Poonam Yadav registered impressive performances for their respective sides.

Shafali struck a half-century and Radha Yadav scalped two batters in Sydney Sixers' five-wicket win in the Women's Big Bash League but Poonam Yadav's effort did not yield a desired result as her team Brisbane Heat lost its match on Sunday. 18-year-old Richa Ghosh, meanwhile, top-scored for the Hurricanes with 46. 

Young opener Shafali struck 57 off 50 balls with six hits to the fence in Sixers' successful run chase against Hobart Hurricane, who made 125 for nine.

Apart from Shafali's knock, Sixers skipper Ellyse Perry hit 27 runs off 33 balls as they reached 129 for five in 19.3 overs.

In another match, leg-spinner Poonam dismissed experienced Beth Mooney (40) and Heather Graham (6) to help Brisbane Heat restrict Perth Scorchers to 137 for seven after inviting them to bat first.

Heat also ended up at the score of 137 for nine and later Scorchers won the contest via a one-over eliminator.
