About the Match

Perth Scorchers finally got it right in the Women's Big Bash League as they reoccupied the fourth spot in the points table with a win against Melbourne Renegades. A win must have been a big relief for Scorchers after a string of losses. They'll be up against Brisbane Heat in their next match who are sitting comfortably at the third spot in the points table with a superior net run rate of 1.103. Both teams have won four matches so far and will be looking to extend their win count so as to get closer to the playoffs as quickly as possible.

Match Preview

Perth Scorchers Women

The Scorchers found themselves back at their home ground, WACA Ground, Perth and it brought about change in their fortunes as well. The Scorchers exhibited a splendid performance against the same team to which they lost a couple of days prior to this encounter.

Batting first against Renegades in the previous encounter, skipper Meg Lanning and Elyse Villani took bottom-line responsibility to score runs upfront as the duo put on a mammoth 143 run partnership before the latter was dismissed for a steady 62. Their openers played out the majority of the overs and there wasn't much left to do for their middle order. Meg Lanning played a power-packed knock of 75 coming off just 50 deliveries.

After an inspiring performance from their openers, their opening bowlers toiled hard to get a wicket but were unsuccessful. However, Heather Graham got rid of Sophie Molineux on the last ball of the powerplay which eased some nerves in the Scorchers' camp. The Scorchers continued to pick wickets at the regular intervals thereafter which never allowed the Renegades to stay on course. The Scorchers eventually restricted Renegades to 157. winning the match by 15 runs.

Perth Scorchers Women Starting Lineup

Elyse Villani, Meg Lanning, Nicole Bolton, Amy Ellen Jones, Heather Graham, Lauren Ebsary, Chloe Piparo, Kate Cross, Hayleigh Brennan, Taneale Peschel, Emma King.


Brisbane Heat Women

Brisbane Heat are riding high on confidence with some terrific wins in their recent games which also included the much-talked-about century by Grace Harris. Grace Harris failed to do anything remarkable in her last match as she was dismissed for just 20.

Batting first after winning the toss, the Heat would be hoping to get to a formidable total. However, they succumbed to pressure to scoring too many and ended up a lot less than the par score on the surface. Thanks to the responsible knocks of Sammy-Jo Johnson and Jess Jonassen, who scored 51 and 40 respectively, the Heat women got to a modest total of 154 which eventually proved to be enough.

It was important for their bowlers to pick up early wickets in a defense of subpar total and their bowlers did not disappoint. They had four Sixers' batters back in the pavilion within the first four overs. The wicket of Elysse Perry in the eight over of their innings happened to be the final nail in the coffin as Sixers could neither gain momentum or bat out for 20 overs. Eventually, they were folded for just 88 as Heat emerged victorious by 66 runs.

Brisbane Heat Women Starting Lineup

Grace Harris, Beth Mooney, Sammy Jo Johnson, Kirby Short, Jess Jonassen, Josie Dooley, Laura Harris, Delissa Kimmince, Laura Wolvaardt, Jemma Barsby, Haidee Birkett.

Match Prediction

Although the two sides are placed next to each other in the points table, it's been a rather contrasting story for both the sides in the WBBL so far. Brisbane Heat have been fluent in all departments in their recent matches whereas the Scorchers have had a start-stop kind of campaign so far. With a more balanced batting lineup and a well-rounded bowling attack, the Scorchers go in as favorites to win the upcoming encounter.
