First six of the WPL from Hayley Matthews bat in the second over of the first innings. She played the pull shot over the square leg for a maximum off the first ball from Mansi Joshi.

The West Indies international opens the face of her bat on the next ball and a misfield on the third-man boundary leads to another four.
