Sophie MacMahon's half century ensured Scorchers beat Typhoons convincingly to level the Super Series at Sydney Parade.

The Leinster all-rounder struck 11 boundaries in a run-a-ball unbeaten 66 as her side made light work of their pursuit of 181.

Leah Paul (42) and Gaby Lewis (40) had laid the foundation for the chase with an opening stand of 83 and from then the result of the contest was a foregone conclusion.

The Typhoons innings was a disappointing effort, Rachel Delaney apart, with the Merrion batter hitting ten fours in her 64 from 66 balls.

Left-arm spinner Anna Kerrison took 4 for 17, while Hannah Little had two scalps.

The bowling was a little rusty, with 34 wides and 5 no-balls bolstering the modest total.

It's been a disappointing week for the women's game, with the postponement of the World Cup from 2021 to 2022, and also the news that the qualifying tournament won't be held this year.

It's approaching a year since the women played an international match, with little on the horizon either due to the pandemic.

These games therefore take on added significance as they may be one of the few opportunities to impress selectors. The next game in the series is next Sunday, August 16th.
