WHITE FERNS and Wellington Blaze 21-year-old Melie Kerr blasted her career-best T20 score of 71 off just 55 balls, then followed it up with a stunning 4-12, including a maiden over, off her four overs in an emphatic 44-run Blaze victory over defending champions the Canterbury Magicians.
Magicians captain Frankie Mackay top-scored in the reply on her home turf and, with 3-23, had earlier become the first woman to take 100 T20 wickets for her team.
But it was all a bittersweet consolation for the passionate veteran as the Magicians’ tough start to the summer in both formats continued.
