Finishing in cricket is one of the most difficult roles to play for a batter, to go out and hit fours and sixes continuously without wasting any balls in the latter stages of the game is not quite easy. The finishers are the ones who make sure the team ends their innings on a positive note while batting.
In this article, we will be taking a look at some of the finishers who are going to be really crucial for their respective teams in the upcoming Hundred season.
1) Grace Harris
Australian all-rounder Grace Harris is the first player on the list. A dynamic swashbuckling player, Grace has the ability to send the ball far out in the stands. Grace primarily plays as a finisher for the Australian side. For most of her T20I career, she has batted at the no. 6 position more than any other position. She has batted at the no 6 position for a total of 11 innings, scoring 215 runs in it, she has an amazing strike rate of 174.79 while batting at that position too. Grace is going to represent the London Spirit in the 3rd season of the Hundred. London Spirit finished at the 7th position in the last edition. They would really hope the addition of Grace Harris takes them to the title this season.
2) Marizanne Kapp
The seasoned South Africa all-rounder was one of the best players for Oval Invincibles last season. She was player of the match in the finals last year. She majorly played at the no. 4 position for the Invincibles last season. Kapp played a total of 4 matches and scored a total of 126 runs. Her strike rate was 138.46, she hit a total of 17 fours and 2 sixes. Just like last season, Kapp is going to be one of the important players for them.
3) Sophie Ecclestone
English bowler Sophie Ecclestone mainly played at No. 6 for the Manchester Originals last season. Her main role while batting was to make sure she hits some huge blows towards the latter end. From 6 innings she scored a total of 82 runs at an excellent strike rate of 151.85. Even for England’s team, she has mainly batted at no. 8 for them in WT20I’s, scoring 112 runs from 11 innings at a strike rate of 145.45. Manchester Original’s captain, Sophie, will play a key role in defining the Originals’ season.
4) Georgia Adams
The next on the list is Georgia Adams from England. Adams played for Southern Brave last year. Southern Brave finished as the runners-up last year as they lost the finals to Oval Invincibles. Adams primarily played at no. 6 position for the Braves, she scored a total of 100 runs from 6 innings at a strike rate of 136.98. Georgia Adams is definitely going to be Southern Braves’ key player in the finishing department.
5) Freya Kemp
Just like Georgia Adams, Freya Kemp played for the Southern Braves. Kemp most of the time came out to bat at no. 7 position. Kemp scored a total of 75 runs at a strike rate of 125. She also hit 6 fours and 3 sixes in the process. Kemp has the ability to send the ball directly in the stands with huge power even at the age of 18 years. She is definitely going to be the player to watch in the future.
