Unbeatable Grace Harris Shatters Records

In a remarkable display of individual brilliance, Grace Harris etched her name in the WBBL history books with a stunning century that propelled Brisbane Heat to a resounding 50-run victory over Perth Scorchers.

Unstoppable with a Broken Bat

Even a broken bat couldn’t deter the unstoppable Grace Harris as she unleashed a sensational unbeaten 136 off just 59 deliveries. This breathtaking performance shattered the previous record of 114, jointly held by Ashleigh Gardner and Smriti Mandhana.

A Fearless Harris

During her innings, Harris’s determination knew no bounds. Overheard on the stump mic, she boldly stated her need for a new bat, but rather than waiting, she fearlessly declared, “Stuff it, I’ll hit it anyway,” before facing Scorchers’ quick, Piepa Cleary.

Overcoming Adversity

“It was actually a bit loose at the beginning of the game, and that’s when they are at their best,” Grace Harris commented during the broadcast. She continued, “I just thought it will be fine; it will come through. Then I heard it click in this one particular shot just before that six. Then I thought, ‘No, it hasn’t fully cracked.’ I think it’s just loosened up even more. I’ll still hit it for six; I’m on anyway. So you’ve got to keep going, and that’s a great bat. So, in the end, it broke and it still went for six.”

Supporting Performances

Mignon du Preez, with a rapid 39 off 23, contributed significantly to Brisbane’s total. Meanwhile, Beth Mooney showcased her batting prowess, hammering four maximums in a 30-ball 60.

A Gritty Scorchers Effort

Despite the odds, Perth Scorchers put up a commendable fight. Amy Jones’s quick 30 off 17 and the spirited efforts of Sophie Devine and others kept their hopes alive. However, Courtney Sippel’s brilliant spell of 4-27 tilted the balance in favor of Brisbane Heat.

Closing the Chase

In the end, the Scorchers managed to score 179 for the loss of eight wickets, but the target proved too daunting.

Upcoming Action
