Taylor cameo in vain as Storm lose in final

first_imgLONDON (CMC): West Indies Women’s captain Stafanie Taylor struck a cameo, but her efforts were in vain as Western Storm went down by seven wickets to Southern Vipers in the final of the Women’s Super League here on Sunday. Sent in at Chelmsford, Storm rallied to 140 for five off their 20 overs, with New Zealand opener Rachel Priest top-scoring with 57 from 55 deliveries and partner Taylor getting 35 from 28 balls. The pair featured in an opening stand of 74, with Priest slamming eight fours and a six and Taylor striking three fours and a six. Taylor seemed to be moving into high gear when she drove seamer Arran Brindle to mid-off in the 11th over and captain Heather Knight (6) added a further 28 for the second wicket with Priest before falling to Brindle in the 15th over, caught at deep backward square. Brindle finished with two for 15 from her four overs while medium pacer Suzie Bates picked up two for 37. In reply, a 78-run, first-wicket stand between Suzie Bates and captain Charlotte Edwards, virtually ended the game as a contest. Bates stroked 52 off 46 balls with seven fours, while Edwards weighed in with 24 from 18 deliveries with three fours and a six. By the time both fell in the space of 12 deliveries to leave Vipers on 84 for two in the 12th over, only 57 runs were required and Sara McGlashan’s unbeaten 21 from 19 deliveries put the result out of question. Taylor was ineffective from her four overs, finishing wicketless and conceding 24 runs. The right-handed Taylor had a successful tournament, scoring 289 runs at an average of 57 while claiming 11 wickets.last_img read more

He had six points and six rebounds in nearly 19 minutes.COUSINS’ EXITFrom video replays displayed on the arena scoreboard, it appeared Cousins made contact with Westbrook, but it was difficult to discern whether contact was made with the Thunder star’s head or shoulder, or whether the impact was significant.Officials did not eject Cousins from the game until after viewing replays on a TV at the scorers’ table, after which they called a flagrant two.Hard contact is not required for a flagrant two — only an act deemed “unnecessary and excessive.”Allen said Cousins’ “emotions got the best of him,” and that his history of outbursts seems to be held against him in such situations. Allen also asserted that Westbrook “definitely” flopped.Westbrook “took advantage of Cousins’ history.
