New Zealand’s Sophie Devine first to hit 50 in five straight T20s
WELLINGTON: New Zealand women’s cricket captain Sophie Devine became the first player to pass 50 in five successive Twenty20 internationals on Monday when she scored 105 in her side’s 69-run win over South Africa in Wellington.
The 30-year-old scored 72 against India last February and had innings of 54 not out, 61 and 77 earlier in the series against South Africa.
India batswoman Mithali Raj, former New Zealand men’s captain Brendon McCullum and West Indies opener Chris Gayle are the only players to have passed 50 in four successive Twenty20 internationals. – Reuters
