Well-executed scoops go a long way in upsetting the bowler's rhythm and the captain's field placements. And Emma Lamb did so with dexterity, getting into position early to trampoline a full delivery from Lauren Bell over the head of the wicket-keeper. Her sprightly knock of 34 gave Manchester Originals a headstart in the quest of 124 against Southern Brave. Lamb promised further entertainment but her innings was cut short owing to an error in judgement while running between the wickets.
