The New South Wales Breakers completed the WNCL and WT20 double when they defeated the VicSpirit by 51 runs in the WT20 Final at Manuka Oval on Wednesday.

It's the second time that the Breakers have completed the feat, after they won both competitions in 2012/13.

Alex Blackwell led front the in both matches, posting 67 against the Scorpions before top scoring with a quickfire 72 off 43 against the Spirit.

Rachael Haynes (79) top scored in the WNCL Final to lead the Breakers to a total of 4-279.

Erin Osbourne (3-33) and Elyse Perry (2-19) were the pick of the bowlers, as South Australia were dismissed for just 135.

It was WNCL title number 16 and the tenth-straight for the Breakers.

In the WT20 Final, Meg Lanning (72) and Molly Strano (2-35) did their best to keep Victoria in the hunt but Blackwell and Leah Poulton (61) helped New South Wales pile on 175, a total that proved to be too much for the Spirit.

Osbourne did more damage with the ball, taking 5-27 in a memorable week for the Breakers.
