Chasing a target of 133, Brisbane Heat chased down the target without losing any wicket in just 10.5 overs thanks to the superlative ton by Harris. Her knock was laced with 13 hits to the fence and six over them. “I’ve been working ... on a back-of-the-length baseball type slog, and so when it sits up and comes into my hip, I can just have a swing and clear the fence, because I’m strong enough,” she said after her heroics. Beth Mooney had the best seat in the house and only contributed 28 runs in their massive opening stand which saw them home. With the scores levelled, Harris was happy to play for the team and take the single but Mooney sent her back. Harris, who was also dropped on 92 earlier, made the most of it by smacking a six to seal the win and her second century in the tournament. It was the second-fastest ton in the history of women’s T20 games, with only Deandra Dotting scoring one quicker, in 38 balls during the 2010 T20 World Cup. It was a record century WBBL breaking the previous record held by Ashley Gardner, who scored one off 47 balls in the 2017 edition of the tournament.
