Incredibly, the Stars still had 21 balls to face when she fell, in which they added 28 to reach 183 for 6. The Lightning chase ran out of steam after <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/marizanne-kapp" target="_blank">Marizanne Kapp</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/dane-van-niekerk" target="_blank">Dane van Niekerk</a>, partners in real life, shared five wickets between them. Only Jenny Gunn (23 not out in 21 balls) put up resistance of some sort as Lightning crashed to 117. <p></p> <p></p>The Stars had lost Bryony Smith and Sarah Taylor early, but Lee took them to 44 for 2 in the Powerplay overs. She hit the ball incredibly hard (and missed a few, and was put down at least once), but no bowler seemed to find a response to her onslaught. Linsey Smith and Georgia Elwiss bore the least brunt, but even they went for over six an over. <p></p> <p></p>She found support in captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/nat-sciver" target="_blank">Nat Sciver</a> (40 in 31 balls, 6 fours). The pair added 111 in 64 balls, which as good as took the match away from the Lightning. <p></p> <p></p>It was not Sciver's first outstanding performance of the day. The Stars played their semi-final earlier in the day, where Sciver first smashed a 43-ball unbeaten 72, then took 2 for 21, to help them defeat Western Storm by 9 runs. Sciver and Kapp (32 not out in 24 balls) added an unbroken 90 in 53 balls. <p></p> <p></p>The young Stars bowlers deserve a mention. Sophia Dunkley, the 20-year-old leg-spinner, got Heather Knight in the semi-final and finished with 3-0-22-1, and backed it with 3-0-19-1 in the final. One must remember here that the Stars were defeating steep targets on both occasions. Picked only for the final, 19-year-old Mady Villiers rounded things off with 3 for 22, the best figures for either side. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Brief scores:</strong> <p></p> <p></p><strong>Surrey Stars</strong> 183 for 6 in 20 overs (Lizelle Lee 104, Nat Sciver 40; Georgia Elwiss 2 for 29) beat <strong>Loughborough Lightning</strong> 117 in 18.3 overs (Jenny Gunn 23*; Dane van Niekerk 3 for 37, Mady Villiers 3 for 22) by 66 runs. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Player of the Match:</strong> Lizelle Lee.
