It is no secret that Darcie Brown is one of our favourites at the Cricket Library with her express pace, high skill level and youthful exuberance a hallmark of the early stages of her cricket career.
Today upon seeing her take the first hat trick of Weber WBBL|07 resident Cricket Librarian & host of the highly popular new game show ‘Fact or Fiction’, Matt Fiction has penned this haiku poem to commemorate the milestone.
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.
Nathan Ellis is a fine young player and all of us at the Cricket Library were thrilled to see him given the honour of representing Australia in T20 cricket.
Needless to say when he achieved the incredible feat of a hat trick on debut, our resident cricket librarian Matt Fiction was immediately working on a haiku poem to appropriately celebrate the achievement.
In some fantastic news for fans of the Sydney Thunder, Rachael Haynes has agreed to terms for another season with the reigning WBBL Champions. She was part of the inaugural Thunder WBBL team which won the WBBL|01 title and was the captain in their WBBL|06 victorious campaign.
She is the Thunder WBBL all time leading run scorer and will be looking to lead from the front again in WBBL|07.
The Northern Superchargers have claimed victory over the Welsh Fire largely due to the work of pocket rocket Jemimah Rodrigues who rescued the Supercharges innings with a magnificent display with the willow.
