The Hundred: Alana King becomes first woman to take hat-trick in competition as Trent Rockets beat Manchester Originals

Australia leg-spinner Alana King became the first female to take a hat-trick in The Hundred as Trent Rockets thumped Manchester Originals by 43 runs…

Story of the match

King was in regal form for Rockets at Emirates Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon, bowling Cordelia Griffith (12) and Kate Cross (0) either side of pinning Sophie Ecclestone (0) lbw as Originals limped to 87 all out from 76 ball in reply to Rockets’ 119-5 from 100 deliveries.

The 26-year-old -who finished with figures of 4-15 from her 20 deliveries – would have bagged four wickets in four balls had Rockets gone for the lbw review once Ellie Threlkeld was struck on the pad.

King had earlier chipped in with an unbeaten 19 from nine balls, supporting top-scorer Abbey Freeborn (45nno off 28), after a Rockets top order missing captain Nat Sciver for personal reasons had failed to fire.

Originals’ international top four also stuttered, with Lizelle Lee (17 off 13), Emma Lamb (0 off 2), Deandra Dottin (0 off 2) and Amy Satterthwaite (9 off 15) contributing just 26 runs between them.

Olise’s late strike gets Palace point against United

Published

on

Michael Olise has helped Crystal Palace get a point against Manchester United in their 1-1 draw at Selhurst Park Stadium on Wednesday night.

The midfielder’s late strike in extra-time, 91′, levelled the game against United, who had controlled the lead since the 43rd minute of the first half after Bruno Fernandes’ fine finish put the Red Devils ahead just before the break.

A relentless Olise scored from a free kick with a left-footed shot to the top right corner. The equalising goal saw United’s dream of replacing defending EPL champions City in the second place on the league table, fade away, as they remain third with 39 points, having played a game more than City.

Crystal Palace remains in 12th place with 23 points.

Atletico Madrid head coach speaks on leaving Atletico Madrid

Published

on

Atletico Madrid head coach, Diego Simeone, has insisted that nobody has personally told him to leave the club.

Rumours have persisted that Simeone, 52, could be set to end this 11-year stay at Atletico Madrid at the end of the season.

However, the Argentine has now stated that no one at the club has asked him to quit the La Liga giants.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Atletico Madrid’s Copa del Rey tie with Levante on Wednesday night, Simeone said when asked about reports suggesting he would leave the club at the end of the season: “No one has personally asked me to leave.”

However, having already been eliminated from UEFA Champions League and sitting 13 points behind leaders Barcelona in the La Liga table, the Copa del Rey is Atletico Madrid’s last realistic opportunity for a trophy this season.

It has been a disappointing campaign for Simeone’s side, as they sit fourth in the league.

Simeone added, “The boys are enthusiastic to reverse this situation that we have experienced since the break and prior to the World Cup. It’s been a regular to a bad season. For me, there is growth after the break, hopefully, we will continue in that line.”
