East Women Win Game 3 in Cricket Ontario Women’s T20 Championship

East Women Win Game 3 in Cricket Ontario Women’s T20 Championship
East and West to Contest Thursday’s Final
Achini Perera and Miryam Khohkar lead the way with an opening stand of 54 for East chasing 97 to win against West in the third game of the Cricket Ontario Women’s T20 Regional Championship on Wednesday evening (August 26, 2020). Miryam Khokhar was caught by wicketkeeper Sana Zafar off the bowling of Kainat Qazi to halt the opening partnership after 6.3 overs. Achini Perera took East close to victory but was caught for 43 when needing 7 runs for her fifty and her team needing 7 runs for victory. A no-ball ended the game to give East a win by 6 wickets with 10 balls to spare of the available 15 overs.
West had batted first for the third time in three games and reached 96/7 from 15 overs. West’s total owed much to a second wicket stand of 53 between opener Kainat Qazi (30 runs from 32 balls) and Habeeba Bader (19 from 30 balls). The stand ended when Qazi was bowled from the last ball of the eleventh over with West 66/2. Bader was caught at the wicket two balls later without a run added to the total. West captain Terishia Lavia scored 20 of the 30 runs registered when the 15 overs ran out. Lavia was run out with one ball remaining. One more run saw West to 96/7.
The win sees East (Won 1, Lost 2) remain in second place in what is listed as the third game of three in the Ontario Regional League. West (Won 2, Lost 1) topped the league standings. I did not end up at Wednesday’s game but the possibility of a storm may have influenced the decision to cut the over limit from 20 to 15 overs. The presence of heavy clouds without any rain or storm could significantly reduce the light, compared with the almost cloudless sky for Tuesday evening’s game.
The two teams are due to meet today (Thursday, August 27, 2020) in the Ontario Women’s T20 Regional Championship Final. Thunderstorms are in the forecast for Thursday while temperatures might effectively be into the higher 30sC due to humidity factors.
