Roar is late but finally great

Meg Phillips takes a catch to win the game against Queensland. Picture: SCOTT GELSTONFOR THE second match in a row, the Tasmanian Roar left it very late.

And for the second match in a row it was able to get the job done.

The state’s women’s cricket side last night had a thrilling two-run win over the Queensland Fire in the first official Cricket Australia fixture at Launceston’s Aurora Stadium.

It took a Meg Phillips catch at midwicket off the bowling of English recruit Heather Knight from the final ball of the match to secure the result.

The Roar, which did not win a game in either the 20 or 50 over competitions last year, have now won two T20 matches in a row after their win over WA last round.

Knight was the star, making 53 off 41 balls and taking 2-20 off four overs with her mediums.

The game was played in front of a small but vocal crowd.
