After having a disappointing start to the tournament, the way Perth Scorchers have risen up the ladder is commendable. They still have a poor net run rate, but that can improve if they continue with their excellent run in their upcoming matches as well. Up next against them are Melbourne Renegades who are placed second from the bottom and are desperately searching for a victory. They've played least number of matches in this edition of BBL and will be looking to score some wins before it gets too late.
It wasn't long ago when the Scorchers were struggling at the bottom of the table with just one win in their kitty. A little luck coupled with some terrific individual performances has throttled them to the fourth position in the points table and another win here will take them closer to the top of the table.
The Scorchers' recent-most encounter was against Hobart Hurricanes where they just managed to escape with a couple of points to their name. The Scorchers rode on Heather Graham's superb knock of 44 off 30 deliveries, her best of the competition so far, as she single-handedly took them to the one-over decider.
Needing 17 runs off the final over, Heather Graham didn't lose her cool and smashed 16 runs to activate the tie-breaker. Bolton did the bulk of the scoring in the super over as she smashed 15 runs off the first five deliveries. Hurricanes could score a total of only eight runs which handed Scorchers the two crucial points. Graham was also instrumental when Scorchers were out in the field with the ball as she dismissed two Hurricanes' batsmen. Thanks to her all-around effort, she was awarded the man of the match award.

Melbourne Renegades finished sixth in the points table in the last edition of Big Bash League and their campaign this time around hasn't been good either. They've struggled to get wins in their kitty and one win in four matches validates that.
Bowling first in their last encounter, against Brisbane Heat, their bowlers failed to make any impact whatsoever in the powerplay overs as Heat managed to get off to a flying start. Although Molineux and Strano both picked up pickets, the rate at which they conceded runs outweighed the benefits of the wickets they picked. Carrying on with the momentum gained in the powerplay overs, Brisbane Heat cruised to get to a total which Renegades found difficult to hunt down.
Renegades got off to a steady start and looked well set to clinch their second win of the season, but the loss of Wyatt and Satterthwaite allowed Heat to claw back into the game. Renegades' middle order failed to deal with the pressure of scoring quickly as they lost the match by 21 runs.

WBBL is almost at its halfway stage and it's about the time that the teams will start pushing to get as many wins as possible. For Renegades and Scorchers both, the importance of a win here cannot be overstated. Scorchers have done well in their last three matches and will be looking to take the momentum forward. Playing at home, too, will be advantageous for them which makes them better-placed to register a win in the upcoming encounter.
