Rangiora rumble continues for Mags

ROUND 8 of 10

CANTERBURY MAGICIANS defeated OTAGO SPARKS by 119 runs

Mainpower Oval | Rangiora

2 February 2020

SCORECARD

A 119-run Sunday victory continued an important winning weekend for the Canterbury Magicians in a last-ditch bid to make the last two; while the young Sparks were left winless ahead of their last weekend in a tough regular season.

In Frankie Mackay's absence, Laura Hughes was named Magicians captain and started the day on point by winning the toss and choosing to bat first at a hot, dry Mainpower Oval.

The Magicians made 191 all out in exactly 50 overs, 21-year-old Sparks legspinner Sophie Oldershaw giving her side something to smile about with a maiden Women's List A bag of five for 19 off her 10 overs, including an impressive four maidens.

The Sparks couldn't get going with the bat in reply, however, and were all out for 72 inside 35 overs as the learning experiences continued.

With SKY commentator Frankie Mackay absent, Kristy Havill celebrated her debut with 2-23 off eight, including three maidens, while Missy Banks picked up 2-5 off her six overs and Jess Simmons with 3-17 wrapping it up.

The final weekend of the regular season begins on 22 February with the Magicians away to the Central Hinds at Pukekura Park and the Sparks hosting Wellington Blaze at University of Otago Oval.
