Leah Paul and Ashlee King (pictured right) were the stars as Scorchers beat Typhoons by 86 runs at Oak Hill in the Super Series T20 Trophy.

Orla Prendergast (3-23) had accounted for Gaby Lewis, Lara Maritz and Sophie MacMahon with an early burst, but Paul counter-attacked and held the innings together.

The Merrion left-hander hit six fours in her 63 from 48 deliveries, helping her side to 143 for 7 - the total boosted by 18 penalty runs for slow over rate.

The Typhoons reply started steady enough as they reached 30 for 2, before the wheels came off in spectacular fashion.

Aussie speedster Ashlee King ripped through the middle order to claim a Player of the Match 5 for 10, leaving the Typhoons innings in tatters - 57 all out.
