On Sunday 25 July, the team took their second win in the competition, with Alice scoring a half-century. Her innings of 59 from 41 balls saw the Oval Invincibles to a 15-run win over London Spirit and earned Alice the Match Hero title.

Her outstanding performance is even more extraordinary as the youngest player in the competition at only 16 years old.

Alice's story has also attracted attention from the national press - read more via the links below:
