Q Firstly Peter, tell me a lit­tle bit about Grace Har­ris (pic­tured) scor­ing the fastest ever WBBL cen­tury in 42 balls as Bris­bane Heat beat Mel­bourne Stars ear­lier in the tour­na­ment?

A It was a great re­sult and a bit of the­atre at the end with Harry hit­ting a six to win the game and score the hun­dred. It was a nice way to fin­ish the game. We did not get much of a chance to cel­e­brate the knock be­cause we have such a quick turn­around for games in the tour­na­ment. It was a nice way for Harry to bring up her 100 with a straight six, you would take that ev­ery day of the week. She hit the ma­jor­ity of her bound­aries straight and I think she is keep­ing it pretty sim­ple. If she is play­ing the ball late and hit­ting it straight and hard, be­ing such a pow­er­ful striker of the ball in the women’s game and with the smaller out­fields, she is go­ing to clear the bound­ary. She was just play­ing to her strengths and she hit the ball very well. She is back­ing her­self. She is great with kids pro­mot­ing the game and com­men­tat­ing also. She is in a good head space, en­joy­ing what she is do­ing and we need to keep that go­ing – that is the key.
