Sydney Thunder go top of WBBL ladder

  Sydney Thunder go top of WBBL ladder Sydney Thunder have made light work of a middling Hobart Hurricanes total of 148 to jump to the top of the WBBL table. The veteran New Zealand opener thumped the Hurricanes attack to all corners of Burnie's West Park Oval to make short work of the target of 149, hauled in with 11 deliveries to spare.

Sydney Sixers are into their second successive WBBL final after thrashing the Hobart Hurricanes by 103 runs in the second semi-final at the Gabba.

Brisbane Heat allrounder Grace Harris starred as the visitors ended 2018 on a positive note by thrashing Hobart in Launceston.

The Sydney Sixers have bounced back to their best and jumped to second spot on the WBBL ladder with a convincing 39-run victory over the Hobart Hurricanes in Tasmania.

After Ellyse Perry crunched an unbeaten 70 to propel the Sixers to an imposing 2-172 from their 20 overs at Launceston's Invermay Park on Wednesday, the Hurricanes were skittled for 133 in 18 overs.

They lost three wickets in the first four overs of their response and never threatened to recover.

Healy, Perry in world-record WBBL spree

  Healy, Perry in world-record WBBL spree The power of Alyssa Healy and sheer class of birthday girl Ellyse Perry saw records tumble as the Sixers dominated the Melbourne Stars in WBBL. Healy (106 not out off 53 balls) and Perry (87 not out off 68) were in another stratosphere, taking the Sixers to 0-199 in their innings at the WACA on Sunday.

Ellyse Perry’s second half-century of the tournament has led the Sydney Sixers to a 16-run victory over the Hobart Hurricanes at North Sydney Oval.

Medium pacer Sarah Aley picked up three crucial wickets to restrict the Hurricanes to 8-105 before Ellyse Perry guided the Sixers to a seven wicket win.

Captain Corinne Hall (31) and Fran Wilson (29) did their best to resurrect Hobart's cause with a 63-run fourth-wicket stand while South African Chloe Tryon (19) was typically aggressive.

But the hosts lower order crumbled, with the last five wickets falling for just 18 runs.

Erin Burns (3-5) came on and mopped up the tail after Marizanne Kapp (2-18) had caused havoc with the new ball.

Perry was the headline act though, smashing four sixes - including one that smashed the windscreen of an ambulance - in her 56-ball knock.

The star all-rounder and Sixers captain now has 351 runs at an incredible average of 117 for the tournament.

Perry was well supported by opening partner and fellow Australian international Alyssa Healy (39), who got the Sixers off to a flyer.

Ash Gardner (28) and Burns (26no) also ensured the momentum never slipped.

After winning their first two matches of the season, the Hurricanes have now gone seven games without a victory while the Sixers, after starting the day in sixth spot, now only trail leaders Adelaide on percentage.
