The Sydney Sixers campaign faced a hurdle mid-season after bowlers fell victim to another Kiwi attack to drop to third in a row defeat on Saturday.
Elise Perry led the way to the Sixers with half a century unbeaten but not enough of her teammates against Hobart Hurricanes.
With Perry unable to spot her best with the ball after returning from injury, the Sixers’ attack is decisive against the higher-level hitters..

« It was like » I’m not quite there, I’m gonna stop it « . It’s okay to be a strong player in the air when the day comes, but you can put yourself into a struggle a lot if you don’t stick to your shot.. That is exactly what happened there.
Encouraged 15-year-old Amy Smith to perform her part in beating national duo Ash Gardner and Irene Burns. . Leigh’s petite grip was a feature of her performance but she was a full throw ball and she dragged it down leading to breakthroughs..
Burns’ removal of 28 of the 18 balls came at a major turning point as she was threatening to leave her mark on the match..
