Danielle Wyatt etched her name in the record books as she became the first English cricketer to score a hundred in the Women’s Cricket Super League (WCSL) on Sunday.

Representing Southern Vipers, Wyatt, who brought up her hundred in just 56 balls, went on to score 110 runs off 60 balls.

Her 110-run knock is now the second-highest all-time score in the competition, after New Zealand great Suzie Bates‘ 119-run innings in 2017.

Southern Vipers did not feature as many as five players from the last year in their XI and that seemed to have turned the tide for the side. Wyatt, following her hundred, said that the team is enjoying its time.

“Everyone’s enjoying themselves, great vibe, everyone’s really close which is nice,” Wyatt was quoted as saying by CRICKETher. “Everyone’s playing with a smile on their face,” she added.

While Wyatt blitz took the opposition by storm, the team did not set the stage on fire from the word go and could only score 29 runs in the powerplay.

Wyatt highlighted the same, saying, “It was a tricky wicket. Me and Suzie [Bates] struggled a bit in the first few overs. It was one of those wickets where you have to just back yourself and slog it really. I came off the pitch thinking ‘wow, how did I manage that?!’”

“Once I was in, I wasn’t thinking and just wanted to hit boundaries. Anything up there and full I tried to get my hands through. I’ve not hit a 100 for about 15 months so it’s nice to get another one!” she concluded.

Wyatt took to Twitter to state that it was a special day yesterday.
