Jess Cameron's golden run of form has continued, the VicSpirit batter helping her side to a comprehensive eight-wicket victory over SA Scorpions in their Women's T20 clash on Sunday.
Twenty-year-old Cameron belted 128 off 68 balls as she and Ellyse Villani (173) tore shreds off the South Australian attack in a record-breaking 50-over victory by the VicSpirit on Saturday.
And while Villani could not match that effort in this game as she fell for 15, Cameron simply picked up where she left off at the Camberwell Sports Ground, belting an unbeaten 49 off 30 deliveries as the VicSpirit cruised past the Scorpions' initial score of 5-116 in 14.3 overs with eight wickets to spare.
Cameron was ably assisted by opener Meg Lanning, who struck 40 off 41, but fell 18 runs shy of victory at the hands of Scorpions' bowler Tahlia McGrath (1-28).
Stephanie Morrison was the only other Scorpion to take a wicket, claiming Villani to have 1-29 off three overs.
For the VicSpirit, Kath Hempenstall and Molly Strano both took two wickets apiece as they helped restrict the Scorpions to 116 off their 20 overs.
It was Hempenstall (2-19) that got the ball rolling for the VicSpirit in the morning, claiming wickets in consecutive overs as the Scorpions soon found themselves at 2-18.
The young South Australian side did recover some of the initiative as Lauren Ebsary (38 off 32) and Bridget Patterson (10 off 15) added 40 for the third wicket but that was when Strano (2-22) got in on the act, having Patterson stumped in the 10th over before Ebsary drove the same bowler straight to Emily McIntyre at mid-off.
Beth Morgan (23 off 25) and Tegan McPharlin (19 off 20) added some late runs, but with the VicSpirit in ominous batting form over this weekend, 116 was never likely to be enough as the hosts completed their third win in three games.
