Birmingham Phoenix Women maintained their perfect start to The Hundred in 2022 with a five-run win over Northern Superchargers at Edgbaston.

It’s three wins out of three now for Phoenix after a stroke-laden 48 from Amy Jones, who hit nine of the 28 balls she faced for four, lifted them to a testing 153 for four despite Alice Davidson-Richards’ impressive three for 30. 

Superchargers’ reply then ran into a superb spell from Sophie Molineux. The Aussie slow left-armer bowled her first two sets without conceding a run and returned to remove the dangerous Alyssa Healy (46, 28 balls) on the way to figures of two for 11 from 20 balls as the visitors finished on 148 for five.
