• Southern Vipers 172-7; Western Storm 174-4
• Heather Knight hits 78 not out in six-wicket win
Western Storm became the first team to win the Kia Super League title twice, repeating their feat from 2017 against the same opposition as they once again pipped Southern Vipers at the post, chasing down their target of 173 with six wickets in hand but only six balls to spare.
Fittingly it was the captain, Heather Knight, who hit the winning runs, punching a four down the ground as she finished unbeaten on 78 from 53 balls having earlier become the only player to top 1,000 runs in the competition. “It was special,” she said.
