Take a look at the players who lit up the northern derby.
The South African was all class. As Northern Superchargers Women reached only 126, she was the shining batter. She scored 75 not out, the next highest score was 19. Wolvaardt was in complete control throughout her innings and took full advantage at the end, hitting 24 from the final six balls.
What a star the Manchester Originals captain is. She made a huge impact in the Powerplay, bowling 15 of the first 25 balls, and it worked to perfection. She got her England teammate Lauren Winfield-Hill third ball and then the wickets of Alice Davidson-Richards and Bess Heath. The final ten balls she bowled in the Powerplay went for zero runs. Incredible.
If Cross set them up, Lizelle Lee knocked them down. She expertly managed the chase, hitting 13 fours and a six in her 68. Lee scored quickly at the start to get Originals into a commanding position, and from there Superchargers were out of it.
Pretty much the perfect performance from John Simpson. Joint-fastest fifty in the Men's Competition, his coming from 21 balls. He struck 11 fours and two sixes. The aggression and power he displayed thrilled Emerald Headingley. Oh, and he took two brilliant catches behind the stumps.
Thompson didn't bat or bowl in his previous appearance against Oval Invincibles. On the basis of this batting, it's difficult to see why. He belted the ball into the stands with ease. The Hundred's fastest bowler Lockie Ferguson was dismissed with disdain. Thompson was out for 27 from 14, and didn't the crowd love it.
Two wickets for Rashid, both of them edges to keeper Simpson. He bowled with his usual guile and trickery. But we've included him mostly for his wonderful piece of fielding. He was quick on the pick up, threw in one rapid motion, and a direct hit saw Tom Hartley run out.
