About the Match

The Melbourne Renegades and the Adelaide Strikers will be taking on each other as the WBBL continues. This will the second match for both the teams who have had a very contrasting result coming into this match.

The Melbourne Renegades were beaten very comprehensively by Sydney Thunder while the Adelaide Strikers won their game against Brisbane Heat with ease. The Adelaide Strikers finished 4th in the last edition of the WBBL while the Melbourne Renegades finished 6th.

The Melbourne Renegades would like to forget their first match ever happened and start afresh while the Adelaide Strikers will not want to give their opponents an opportunity to get back n their feet.

It is easy to see why the Adelaide Strikers would be considered favorites going into this match.

Match Preview

Melbourne Renegades Women

Nothing went to plan for the Melbourne Renegades in the first match. They batted first and could only put up 98 runs after having played the entire 20 overs. For a side with some talented batters like Molineux, Satterthwaite, Kershaw, and Koski that is just unacceptable.

The Melbourne Renegades lost wickets early including that of Molineux in the first over. From then on it was a procession where the batters could do nothing more than occupy the crease for 20 overs and limp to a target that was never going to be enough.

The Melbourne Renegades don’t appear to be a side that is going to have too much success by going hard at the top of the inning. Molineux is a talented batter with a proven track record for Australia but she is not someone like Alyssa Healy who is going to tear attacks apart.

Support also has to come for the other batter in the top order if the Renegades are going to have a better WBBL than last season.

There is nothing much the bowling could have done while trying to defend a sub-100 score and that is exactly what happened. Vlaeminck took all the four wickets to fall and the other bowlers were economical too but Sydney Thunder could afford to take its time chasing down a small target.

Not too much can be gauged from this performance because it was so bad. The Melbourne Renegades fans would be hoping that this was a one-off and the real tournament is still to start.

Melbourne Renegades Women Starting Lineup

Sophie Molineux, Erica Kershaw, Claire Koski, Danielle Wyatt, Amy Satterthwaite, Emma Inglis, Courtney Webb, Molly Strano, Georgia Wareham, Lea Tahuhu, Tayla Vlaeminck.


Adelaide Strikers Women

An excellent start to WBBL 03 for the Adelaide Strikers adds credence to them being talked about as dark horses for this year’s title. They scored an excellent total of 172 to put pressure on Brisbane Heat and then bowled tight lines to never let them into the contest.

The batting performance of the Adelaide Strikers was built around a blistering inning from Sophie Devine. The New Zealand international has the same batting partner in the Adelaide Strikers as she does for New Zealand.

She and Suzie Bates are one of the most dangerous opening pairs in world cricket. They would have been disappointed at not having a better World T2o than they did and so it was encouraging to see some good signs to start the WBBL.

Suzie Bates scored just one before getting out but Sophie Devine smashed 89 from 55 deliveries. Her inning included 5 sixes and 6 fours to fetch her a strike rate of 161.81. Both Bates and Devine are the kind of players that can go on excellent run-scoring sprees once they hit form.

They also like playing in Australia as can be evidenced from their previous record in the country.

With some promising Australian players in the side like McGrath, Patterson, and McPharlin in the side, the Adelaide Strikers have a good batting order to depend upon.

We think having Megan Schutt leading the bowling attack is also a huge advantage. She is a dependable new ball bowler who can take a couple of early wickets up front. Since a lot of the WBBL teams have a strong batting order with little to follow, early wickets can be very difficult to recover from.

Davine, Wellington, Coyte, and McGrath also had a good bowling day in the first match although there was a distinct lack of intent from Brisbane Heat.

Suzie Bates, Sophie Devine, T McGrath, B Patterson, Amanda Wellington, T McPharlin, Megan Schutt, T Saville, S Coyte, A Price, Danielle Hazell.
