SOUTHERN Brave skipper Anya Shrubsole reflected on a “disappointing” The Hundred final which saw Oval Invincibles win the inaugural competition and admitted: “The worst game played was probably the final.”

Brave slumped to 14 for six and were bowled out for 73, the lowest score of the competition, while chasing a total of 122 for victory.

Shrubsole’s Brave had gone into the final as favourites after topping the league with seven wins and just one defeat, but the loss of early wickets proved too much to come back from.

Marizanne Kapp starred for Invincibles, hitting 26 off 14 balls before she took four wickets for just nine runs.

The South African removed England internationals Danni Wyatt and Sophia Dunkley both for ducks.

Shrubsole was unsurprisingly not pleased with her side’s performance on the day, revealing: "It goes without saying it is obviously disappointing.

"The worst game we've played was probably the final. A huge amount of credit must go to Dane and the Oval Invincibles who I thought bowled really well up top and you are going to struggle to chase many things down when you are three down inside the first 10 balls.

"I don't think the occasion got to us. Two of the first three wickets are England internationals, so I think that is an obvious thing to say, but don't think that is the case.

"I thought we bowled really well and fielded well on the whole, though we dropped a couple of catches. We just didn't bat well enough at the end of the day.

“The girls were looking forward to the day, but these things happen.”
