It is cricket’s most hackneyed cliche that ‘catches win matches’. And it is the stone-cold truth. Smriti Mandhana was given a lease of life on nought by Alex Griffiths, who made a meal of a simple chance at deep mid-wicket. The bungle-up is proving to cost Welsh Fire dearly as three fours and a six has already flown from Mandhana’s willow. Having let Southern Brave off the hook so early in the innings, Fire are paying the price as the opening stand registers a fifty partnership.
