SOPHIE DEVINE HITS HER AND WORLD’S FASTEST WOMEN’S T20 CENTURY OFF 36 BALLS

Sophie Frances Monique Devine as we all know is New Zealand’s famous and mighty cricketer and sportsperson. She plays from the side of Wellington Blaze in the ongoing Women’s Super Smash League. She has Type 1 diabetes too but she never lets it reflect in any of her performance. She currently has set a new record of achieving the World’s Fastest Women’s Century in a T20 Match. Before her, Deandra Dottin held the record of making it in 38 balls.

Sophie Surges! 

In a match between, Otago Sparks and Wellington Blaze on the 14th of Jan 2021 at the University of Otago Oval, Dunedin, the toss was won by the former team and they chose to bat first and made 128 runs in 20 overs. For the fortune of Wellington Blaze, they got Sophie Devine on her side who seemed to own the ground there, and single-handedly scored 108 runs off only 38 balls. That’s some explosive batting on the field done by Sophie. She hit 9 fours and 9 sixes. 

The surprising part is she opened with Maddy Green and these two were set so on the pitch that did not let any of the team players and contribute to their win as they thought the whole responsibility was theirs and this sense led Wellington Blaze straight to its victory. On the account of her fantastically swift century, many of the authorities and councils showered praises on her. 

ICC (International Cricket Council) took to Twitter to celebrate her century and Wellington Blaze’s victory, 

Cricket Wellington also tweeted through their official account, Sophie’s Charming Century, 

Quite a Good Soul Sophie is!

One not-so-good incident did happen there and for that reason, Sophie did not actually enjoy and celebrate her century. One of her sixes hit a fan sitting in the spectators’ section and that was the thing she was worried about. But she went to her in after the match ended and gave her a cap and clicked a picture with her. 

This video was tweeted by the White Ferns Official account, 

A thing you would admit is that she is quite of a great and alive human being also for the gesture she showed for her fans shows how humble and down to earth Sophie is. 

If you wish to witness her whole batting and century highlights,

Applauds for this courteous cricketer from the fans are such that they believe she would even knock off everyone if she played in Men’s team.
