After a dismal start to the tournament, Perth Scorchers crawled their way into the top half of the table only to be displaced by Brisbane Heat a game thereafter. However, they'll have a chance to get into top-four once again as they face Melbourne Renegades on Sunday, 23rd December at WACA Ground, Perth in what will be the repeat of Saturday's encounter. Melbourne Renegades thumped them in Saturday's game and will be looking to bounce back. Renegades, on the other hand, will have a chance to get neck-and-neck with Scorchers, as far as points table is concerned and a win here will truly revive their run in this hard-fought tournament.
Similar to their men's counterpart, the Women's Scorchers team hasn't really done justice to the team they have on paper. Led by Australian skipper Meg Lanning, they had a rather quiet start to the tournament. Just when they appeared to be getting hold of the things, they lost their recent-most encounter to Melbourne Renegades.
Being put in to bat by the Renegades, the Scorchers got off to a rather poor start as they lost both their openers inside the first six overs. Heather Jones and Amy Graham tried to revive their innings, but the departure of Jones led to collapse from with the Scorchers could never recover. They were eventually restricted to 122 for 6 in 20 overs.
Defending a low total on a decent batting surface is never easy and hence it proved for the Scorchers. Although they picked up Molineux in the opening over of the innings, a useful partnership between Wyatt and Cameron thereafter knocked them out of the match. Even though they fought back with a few quick wickets towards the back-end of the match, it was too little too late.

The Renegades bounced back from the slump to register their second win of the competition coming in their fifth game. With their win against the Scorchers, their net run rate improved drastically and a win in their next game will certainly take them above Perth Scorchers, to the fifth spot.
The bowlers immediately proved skipper Amy Satterthwaite's decision to bowl first after winning the toss as they got rid of both the openers in the fifth over of the match. As has been the case in a few of the other matches as well, Lea Tahuhu was impressive upfront as she picked up both the openers in her two overs.
Sophie Molineux did exceedingly well as the first change operator as Scorchers couldn't really get going with Strano and Molineux operating well in the middle overs. Maitlan Brown bowled well and returned with the impressive figures of 4-0-25-2.
Chasing a subpar total, all their batsmen had to do was to deny early wickets to the Scorchers' bowlers and despite the early loss of Molineux, they duo of Danielle Wyatt and Jess Cameron followed the plan to perfection. They did lose a few quick wickets towards the end of their innings and ability to close games will be a matter of concern for their think tank. If they can do that in the upcoming games, they'll certainly be a force to deal with.

After a brief exhibition of resurgence, Perth Scorchers find themselves staring down the barrel once again. They haven't been at their in the tournament so far and have, in fact, displayed a few more vulnerabilities. Renegades, on the other hand, will be a more confident unit and are therefore better-placed to win the upcoming match.
