Last week on the Cricket Library Weekly, Robbie Mackinlay boldly proclaimed that former guest and friend of the Library Rachel Priest would make her mark on this season’s WBBL competition featuring in the upper echelons of the run scorers list.
His suspicions proved to be very accurate with the Hurricanes skipper plundering the Melbourne Stars on her way to a destructive 107 off just 68 balls including 10 boundaries and 7 sixes.
Resident cricket librarian Matt Fiction was particularly impressed, penning this haiku poem in her honour.
Priest pounds a hundred
Bowlers quaking in their boots
Leading from the front!
Rachel was a very popular guest on the Cricket Library Weekly last year and you can hear her chat with Robbie Mackinlay here.
