“She’s been unthinkable. It goes to show how good she has been in situations like that, ” Sophie Ecclestone said on Monday.

“I know she didn’t make it to the end tonight but I suppose she put us in the winning position. She’s so calm and collected and she knows what she’s doing. She’s cemented her place in the side and I’m happy for her ” the England each- rounder said about Harris.

Coming in at a time when the platoon was floundering at 39 for 3, Harris forged a pivotal 78- run stage with compatriot Tahlia McGrath and ultimately paved the way for Warriorz ’ three- gate palm against the titans.

“With short boundaries and a quick outfield, I knew we were always in the game. I was a bit scratchy at the launch but I set up my range latterly, ” Harris told broadcasters, before adding with a smile “ I like to finish game. ”

And as the playoffs nears, Warriorz, too, would want Harris to finish games in her own way; in her own style! Know More Women’s Cricket News…
