Zing! Harris signs off in style in The Hundred

Big-hitting Grace Harris has signed off from The Hundred with a brilliant 87 served up by the bat she dubs 'Zinger Stacker'

Grace Harris has signed off from The Hundred with a tasty match-winning knock served up by the latest of her thumping bats to be named after a fast-food treat.

"I name all my bats after burgers because they're all stickered the same," explained Harris with a grin after her blistering 87 - the second highest score in the women's competition this summer - inspired London Spirit to a 73-run triumph over Birmingham Phoenix at Edgbaston on Thursday.

"How'd you tell them apart otherwise? This one's already named - Zinger Stacker.

"It came through today. It has a chunkier middle - as does Big Mac. They've just been broken and might have to go to the shop for repairs."

The 29-year-old, who also has bats she's christened Barbecue Angus and McNugget which have helped her wreak havoc in the WBBL, said it was "one of the better days" she'd had in England after a largely disappointing edition of The Hundred for her.

"I'm happy to have freed up and contributed. I loved the pitch as a batter, but I wouldn't have if I were a bowler, though. Lucky I didn't have to roll the arm over."

In her last match of the campaign, Harris smashed 87 off just 47 balls, propelling Spirit to 5-172 after they had been put in by the home side.

She moved to a 31-ball half-century, getting to the landmark by sweeping her 10th boundary, and then really let loose with successive sixes off Erin Burns and Sophie Devine. 

Phoenix couldn't get anywhere near the target, being bowled out for 99 in just 76 balls, with New Zealander Amelia Kerr taking 4-13 to enable them to end their campaign with a second victory to go with four defeats and two 'no results'.

"I've had a ball with the London Spirit, would've loved to have contributed more but maybe next year," said Harris.
