Kaur keeps calm in the chase

Kaur starred with an unbeaten 73 off just 46 deliveries as the Renegades chased down 161, with the victory moving them to the top of the WBBL ladder.

“I was really positive, and credit goes to all the girls who were supporting me,” Kaur said.

“We were looking for 10 runs per over, but I wasn’t putting much pressure on myself because I knew if I stayed we could chase this total. I’ve done this quite a few times now.”

Her calm demeanour helped her think through the chase, which was the highest total any side has run down in WBBL|07.

“In games like that you have to pick the bowlers you want to attack and the ones you want to be safe with,” Kaur said.

"When the spinners were on I wanted to attack, as they were the important overs to utilise, and it was also important to attack the way the wind was blowing.”

The 32-year-old Indian international has 219 runs at an average of 73 for the season to go with seven wickets, often bowling in the powerplay.

Kaur also credited the impact of experienced coach Simon Helmot in his first season.

“The coach is always very positive, he tells us to just go and show your game and that’s what you want, for the coach to be positive and let you go and trust yourselves,” she said.

The Renegades will take on the Perth Scorchers on Wednesday at the WACA Ground, at 4.50pm local time/7.50pm AEDT.
