Sciver takes Stars to WBBL final

Nat Sciver plays a shot for Melbourne Stars

Published: 25th November, 2020

Surrey and England all-rounder Nat Sciver continued her incredible 2020 WBBL campaign by leading Melbourne Stars into Saturday’s final.

Sciver was still there unbeaten as teammate Annabel Sutherland hit the winning runs against Perth Scorchers to take Stars into the final, which will begin at 8:10am UK time on Saturday. They will face the winner of the Brisbane Heat v Sydney Thunder semi-final.

Coming in at 20/2 and needing another 106 to win, Sciver steadied the Stars ship and ended up on 47 from 45 balls in a perfectly timed chase.

The Surrey Academy graduate and World Cup winner has been one of the standout players throughout the competition and was named in the Team of the Tournament earlier this week. With the final still to come, she is the leading wicket taker with 19 and has made 241 runs at an average of more than 40.

Fans in the UK can watch Sciver’s final on Saturday on BT Sport.
