The WBBL Brisbane Heat star was in imperious form over the weekend at Allan Border Field, inspiring Wests to the Katherine Raymont Shield T20 title with centuries in the semi-final and Final and a match-defining effort with the ball in the title decider.
In the semi-final against Sandgate-Redcliffe, the Gators rolled the dice and sent Wests into bat. Harris combined with Annie Wikman (68 from 50 balls) to pile on a 212-run opening stand as she produced 144 from 64 balls, including 11 fours and 12 sixes.
Sandgate-Redcliffe took the fight to their opponents in the chase, with Queensland and Australian star Beth Mooney responding with a classy 121 from 59 balls. However it wasn’t quite enough, with the Gators falling short by 28 runs to send Wests into the decider.
The other semi-final between Gold Coast and Valley also featured WBBL Heat players in commanding form.
Batter Mikayla Hinkley top-scored for Valley with 62 from 39 balls in an impressive lone-hand for her side as they reached 7-140. Roxanne Thomson (2-17 from 4 overs) and Grace Parsons (2-24 from four overs) took multiple wickets for the Dolphins.
Heat batter Georgia Redmayne, one of the shining lights for the Heat in their rebel WBBL campaign this season, then led the charge with the bat, top-scoring with 81 from 46 balls as she and Tara Wheeler (44no off 45 balls) steered the Gold Coast to a match-winning 1-144.
With the Dolphins' men's team winning the morning Final against Toombul, the scene was set for a rare double for the Gold Coast. But that was before Harris turned on the power again.
Picking up exactly where she left off, Harris struck a blazing 136 from 71, featuring 22 boundaries, to set up a comprehensive 98-run victory for Wests.
In reply to Wests’ second total in excess of 200, 3-210, Redmayne again started strongly with a 25-ball half century before her dismissal by Heat teammate Courtney Sippel on 50.
Harris then chimed in to seal the result, with her off-spin netting 3-9 from her four overs, tearing through the Gold Coast middle order and reducing them to 9-112 from 20 overs, 98 runs short of the target.
