Clifton all-rounder shows style in cricket nationals
CRICKET: First we had Lynnsanity as Brisbane Heat batsman Chris Lynn hit big sixes and now we have Flynnsanity.
Eliza Flynn bowled Queensland to a strong win over Northern Territory at the Australian Country Championships returning incredible Twenty20 figures.
The Clifton all-rounder finished with remarkable figures of 6-4 from 3.1 overs as Queensland posted its first win of the tournament in Wollongong.
Queensland batted first and Flynn came in at No.4 adding 10 from 12 balls as her team scored 8-114 from its 20 overs.
Jondaryan's Anna Paton top-scored with 16 while Warwick player Carly Cooper (one) and Jess Carroll (two) chased quick runs at the end of the innings.
Flynn was then used as Queensland's seventh bowling option and made a massive impact.
Northern Territory looked to be in control at 2-63 in its chase before Flynn knocked over NT opener Bronte Stray (24).
Flynn then ripped through the batting order taking another five wickets to bowl NT out for just 82 in the 17th over.
Her spell of 3.1 overs yielded 6-4 including two maidens, with two of the runs conceded wides, as NT lost 8-19.
Flynn's sister Sarah has also played for Queensland Country but hasn't played any cricket this season after shoulder surgery.
Queensland Country play Western Australia at 5pm (Qld time) today and then meet South Australia and Victoria tomorrow.
