Let us tell you that usually the size of the ground in women’s cricket is usually small, but the 94-metre six hit by Sophie would have crossed the boundary on any ground in the world. Seeing Sophie’s style, she is being called RCB’s lady Chris Gayle on social media.
WPL’s biggest six came in the 9th over of the innings
Against RCB, the Gujarat team won the toss and decided to bat first. The Gujarat team scored a big score of 188 runs at the loss of 4 wickets in the stipulated 20 overs. In response to this, captain Smriti Mandhana and Sophie Devine made a blistering start for RCB. In the match, when Tanuja Tanwar came to bowl the 9th over of the innings, Sophie created history by hitting a 94 meter six on her third ball. Sophie hit a total of three sixes in this over.
RCB completed 100 runs in just 9 overs
RCB’s destructive batting against Gujarat can be gauged from the fact that the team crossed the 100-run mark even before the completion of 9 overs. During this, the condition of the Gujarat bowlers was so bad that they could not take a single wicket. Mandhana and Sophie Devine shared a 125-run partnership for the first wicket. At the same time, the second wicket of the team fell on the score of 157. However, after this Ellyse Perry and Heather Knight took the lead and won the team by 8 wickets in 15.3 overs.
