Adelaide Strikers 2 for 102 (Dottin 55) beat Melbourne Renegades 101 (Wellington 5-8)
Wellington’s stunning return came as the Renegades were bowled out for 101 in 19.5 overs.
She took three of her wickets in a four-ball span as Strikers banked a second victory from four games this tournament. Renegades remain in the mire with just one win from their four matches.
Only two Renegades batters reached double-figures – Carly Leeson top-scored with 35 from 33 balls and Courtney Webb made 29 from 37 balls. The pair featured in a 51-run partnership for the fifth wicket after the visitors crashed to 4 for 21 in the sixth over.
Leeson and Webb’s stand took the Renegades to 5 for 73 but after their fruitful partnership the Renegades’ last five wickets fell for only eight runs as Wellington cleaned up.
The star leggie was on a hat-trick in the final over of the innings after stumpings on consecutive balls dismissed Georgia Prestwidge and Ella Hayward.
Shabnim Ismail survived the hat-trick ball but was out on the next delivery to cap Wellington’s superb 3.5 overs.
Dottin opened the innings and after the early loss of partner Katie Mack put on a 45-run stand with Laura Wolvaardt.
