Oh so close at Lilac Hill
BIG Bash cricket returns to Lilac Hill later this month after a thrilling game on Sunday.
The Perth Scorchers lost a Women’s Big Bash League thriller to Women’s ladder leader Sydney Thunder.
The Thunder skipped a game clear of their Sydney rivals, the Sixers, at the top of the ladder after their final-ball victory over Perth.
The Scorchers needed three runs off the final delivery and Mathilda Carmichael was on her way back for a second run to tie the game, when she was run out. The final score was Thunder 6-145 and the Scorchers 6-144.
The Scorchers, who made last season’s final, are fourth with four wins from seven matches.
They next play at Lilac Hill on January 21, hosting the Hobart Hurricanes.
The Scorchers’ Mathilda Carmichael is run out on the last ball of the day.
