Wellington Blaze captain Liz Perry has won the toss at Auckland’s Melville Park and elected to bowl in today’s round seven clash with the Auckland Hearts in the national Women’s One-Day Competition.

The match is a significant milestone for allrounder Sophie Devine who has returned from starring in Australia’s WBBL T20 league to make her 100th One-Day domestic appearance (89 for the Blaze and 11 for Canterbury).

A win to the Blaze would see them overtake the Hearts on the One-Day points table to move into second slot on the ladder, just two more rounds remaining after that before the Final in February.
