Defending WBBL champions Perth Scorchers notched back-to-back wins to begin their campaign, beating the Hobart Hurricanes by eight wickets at Blacktown in Sydney.
Scorchers restricted Hurricanes to 9 for 109 after winning the toss on Monday night, cruising past the total with almost five overs to spare.
King took the big wicket of Elyse Villani with her sixth ball, lbw sweeping, to set the tone and returned to remove Mignon du Preez and Naomi Stalenberg later in the innings. Heather Graham top scored for Hobart with 35 from 28 balls, which included her side’s only two sixes.
Hurricanes defended 125 for victory in their season opener against the Thunder but couldn’t manage a similar effort.
