ADSW vs MLRW Team Previews
Adelaide Strikers Women
Adelaide Strikers displayed flawless performance in their opening match as they rose to the top of the table with a splendid win. Both their batting as well as bowling exceeded expectations in the opening match, and they'll be looking for something similar in the upcoming game as well.
It all started for them when they chose to bowl after winning the toss. Megan Schutt and Sophie Devine were excellent in the opening burst, which was well backed up by incredible bowling from Stephanie Taylor. They restricted Renegades to just 117, which was eventually chased down with more than four overs to go.
After exhibiting a special effort from the ball, Sophie Devine stood up with bat as well as she hammered 72 off just 45 deliveries to guide her team to the victory. While the likes of Suzie Bates, TM McGrath, and BE Patterson failed to do anything of substance, their management wouldn't be too worried about that, just yet.

Melbourne Renegades Women
Nerves got better of Renegades in their opening encounter of the series as they failed to put on a par score even on a surface perfectly suited to bat freely. With a colossal defeat to their name, they are currently languishing at the second spot from the bottom of the table and will be looking to kick-start their campaign with a win in their upcoming encounter.
Batting first against the Strikers, none of their top-order batsmen was able to find feet as four key players were dismissed for just 21 runs on the board. Had it not been for JE Duffin, their skipper, who scored 44 off 32 deliveries, the Renegades would have bundled out for a lot less.
Defending such a low total, there was hardly anything their bowlers could have done and hence it proved to be. Even though the likes of LMM Tahuhu and M Brown picked up a couple of important wickets, the Strikers got home with incredible ease.
