Grace Harris showcased incredible power by smashing a six with a broken bat at the WBBL match between the Brisbane Heat and the Perth Scorchers.
Grace Harris, Brisbane Heat’s opener, made a resounding statement to national selectors by smashing the highest individual score in Women’s Big Bash League history against the Perth Scorchers at North Sydney Oval. The 30-year-old, previously sidelined for the West Indies T20I series, delivered an incredible unbeaten 136 from 59 balls, propelling the Heat to a formidable total of 7-229, the second-highest team score in WBBL history.
Harris’s remarkable innings featured 12 boundaries and 11 sixes, setting another WBBL record, and she achieved her third WBBL century, joining the ranks of Alyssa Healy and Sophie Devine as only the third cricketer to do so.
Grace Harris experienced a bat mishap during the 14th over of her innings, with her bat snapping in half as she smashed a six over mid-wicket. Although she had alerted her team about needing a new bat, just moments before the delivery, she cheekily remarked, “Stuff it, I’ll still hit it!”
Despite this trouble, she continued her blistering form, hitting an unbeaten 70* off 37 balls with the old bat and 66* off 22 balls with the new one. Harris’s extraordinary performance comes as the Perth Scorchers are chasing an unlikely 230 for victory today, October 22.
