London Spirit Women’s Naomi Dattani came out firing on all cylinders in The Hundred against Birmingham Phoenix Women as she clubbed a hat trick of fours followed by a sweetly-timed six. Her sensational 19-ball 34 gave her side the necessary impetus in a modest chase of 128 runs.
It is worth noting that Dattani hasn’t scored at a fair clip of late, given her tally in the previous three T20Is was a meagre 34 runs in 32 balls. Her sudden explosion is a reflection of The Hundred’s breakneck dynamic, as a batter is left with no choice but to go for the jugular with just 100 balls at their disposal.
Naomi Dattani had just smashed three-consecutive fours off Emily Arlott and she then ends her set of five by clubbing a six into the stands over deep square-leg!#TheHundred 💯
