THE TEAM NEWS

ADELAIDE STRIKERS WOMEN

  • Adelaide Strikers were comfortable victors over Melbourne Renegades in their opening clash of the Women’s Big Bash League and will be confident of a repeat performance as they face the same opponent for the second time in a row.
  • The Strikers began strongly having chosen to field first and took four wickets early on to reduce the Renegades to 21/4 with the Melbourne team never really recovering as they stuttered to 117/7.
  • In reply, the Strikers were able to recover from their poor start after losing two wickets in the second over of the run chase but Sophie Devine was in great form as she hit an unbeaten 72 from just 45 balls to guide her side to a win.

MELBOURNE RENEGADES WOMEN

  • Melbourne Renegades have now lost three consecutive WBBL matches stretching back into the last edition of the tournament as they were soundly beaten by Adelaide Strikers of their opening game.
  • The Renegades were second best with both bat and ball as they struggled to reach 117 from their 20 overs after losing some of their key run-scorers early on in the innings which left them with a big task with the ball.
  • Despite a strong start from Lea Tahuhu who took two wickets in the second over, the Renegades were unable to kick on and suffered a six-wicket loss as the Strikers comfortably chased down their total with almost five overs remaining.

THE PREDICTION

Adelaide Strikers ended the last WBBL in strong form with three wins from their final four matches and they carried that on with a win in their first game of this edition as they were far too good for Melbourne Renegades. The two teams meet again here with the Renegades needing more from their top order after they failed to produce and they will be under scrutiny to perform here but they could fall short again against a confident Strikers outfit.
