Hobart Hurricanes appeared set to complete the highest run chase in WBBL history before losing in a super over to Adelaide Strikers.
Chasing just their third win of the tournament, the Hurricanes finished eight wickets down to match the home side’s 5-189 and registered a competitive 1-12 off its super over to set up a thrilling climax.
But New Zealand international Sophie Devine, who finished 99 not out in the Strikers’ innings proper, surpassed the target in just three balls by hitting two sixes and a four off Brooke Hepburn.
Earlier, Hepburn had been the pick of the Hurricanes bowlers, taking 2-28 off four in an innings which also featured a 42-ball 63 from Tahlia McGrath.
In reply, Indian recruit Srmiti Mandhana delivered on her talent by reaching 52 in 22 balls (seven fours, three sixes) to give hope to an unlikely chase.
The Hurricanes fell to 4-69 but Georgia Redmayne (54 not out) kept the flame alive, putting on 32 with Corinne Hall and 58 with Sasha Moloney until the visitors needed just six off the last two balls.
A single to Redmayne put Bracknell’s Katelyn Fryett on strike, and the tailender backed away to cut a full, straight ball past point for four to send the match into a tie-breaker.
