Australia leg-spinner Alana King became the first female to take a hat-trick in The Hundred as Trent Rockets thumped Manchester Originals by 43 runs…

Story of the match

King was in regal form for Rockets at Emirates Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, bowling Cordelia Griffith (12) and Kate Cross (0) either side of pinning Sophie Ecclestone (0) lbw as Originals limped to 87 all out from 76 ball in reply to Rockets’ 119-5 from 100 deliveries.

The 26-year-old -who finished with figures of 4-15 from her 20 deliveries – would have bagged four wickets in four balls had Rockets gone for the lbw review once Ellie Threlkeld was struck on the pad.

King had earlier chipped in with an unbeaten 19 from nine balls, supporting top-scorer Abbey Freeborn (45nno off 28), after a Rockets top order missing captain Nat Sciver for personal reasons had failed to fire.

Sarah Glenn took a brilliant one-handed catch to dismiss Lizelle Lee as Originals were rolled for 87 at Emirates Old Trafford

Originals’ international top four also stuttered, with Lizelle Lee (17 off 13), Emma Lamb (0 off 2), Deandra Dottin (0 off 2) and Amy Satterthwaite (9 off 15) contributing just 26 runs between them.

Lee – who had smashed the first ball of the innings for six – fell to a superb one-handed catch from Sarah Glenn as the fielder backpedalled from mid-off, while Dottin sliced the impressive King to short third.

Dottin (2-21 from 20 balls) led a fine bowling performance from Originals earlier in the day – but King was the star by the end of it as Rockets ran out handsome winners in Manchester, with Kathryn Bryce (2-2 from 12 balls) and Glenn (2-14 from 20) also impressing for the visitors.
