The Piranas advanced to the Hebou Shield Women’s 40 Over Division Grand Final after upsetting the previously undefeated Sharks in the final round robin match today at Amini Park #2 (Bisini).

                                                                      

After winning the toss and batting first, the Sharks posted a very competitive 182 off their allotted 40 overs. Batting down the order, Konio Oala was the star smashing 70 runs, while Valo Lega (41) and Brenda Tau (30) also made valuable runs. Puana Siaka was the star with the ball for the Piranas taking 4/34 while Hina Philip picked up 2/28.

 

Needing a win to advance to the Grand Final, the Piranas slumped to 3/58 before Tanya Ruma (98*) and Vicky Araa (35*) guided the Piranas to a marvellous victory. Ruma’s innings consisted of eleven boundaries and three massive sixes while Tueni Vala (2/27), Sibona Jimmy (1/38) and Konio Oala (1/37) were the only wicket takers for the Sharks.

 

This victory meant that the Piranas advanced to the Hebou Shield Women’s 40 Over Division Grand Final tomorrow where they will take on the Sharks at Amini Park #2 (Bisini)
