FORMER Chase School student and professional cricketer Georgia Hennessy has been enjoying her experience in The Hundred.

The 24-year-old all-rounder signed for the Welsh Fire in the women's competition ahead of the 2021 season that began this month.

Hennessy has featured in both of her side's opening two defeats to start the campaign.

She scored 23 (not out) runs off 24 balls with the bat in the defeat to Southern Brave on Tuesday afternoon and conceded 13 runs from her 15 deliveries with the ball.

Fire lost by eight wickets in the end and remain without a win so far in this campaign.

Hennessy added: "The Hundred has been such an exciting competition, there were concerns at the start on how it was all going to go but I think it’s such a good format.

"The simplicity of it means players can play with freedom! The first two games for us haven’t been the best of starts but I think we have a great group of girls and we will bounce back."

Welsh Fire are back in action this Saturday (July 31) at home to Manchester Originals and it will be a sell out at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff for an 11AM start.
