KSL: Semi @Chelmsford 21/8/16

Storm won the toss and bowled in the first ever KSL finals day against Lightning. Elwiss and van Niekerk fell in the fifth over, but Devine and Perry combined to push the score to decency with a 58 run stand at a smidge under a run a ball. Devine fell in the 15th over and Perry attempted to marshal the tail, although Sophie Luff tried to keep the score down with two run outs. Perry ended the season with a valuable contribution, finishing unbeaten on 64 off 48, the next highest score was Devine on 21.

Beth Langston opened for Lightning extremely economically with only 1 run from the first 2 overs, Odedra from the other end was not quite so tight, with Priest and Taylor playing watchfully. Priest fell early but Taylor and skipper Knight combined to equal Lightnings top partnership of 58. Taylor fell to a top edged sweep, pouched by Brookes, with Wilson continuing in on a 45 run stand. Wilson fell with 7 runs required and a clatter of wickets left Hennessy to finish things with a boundary though the covers off her first ball with 3 balls to spare to see Storm into the first KSL final!
