THE TEAM NEWS

BRISBANE HEAT WOMEN

  • Brisbane Heat look the team to beat as the knockout stages approach and they will be very confident of retaining their Women’s Big Bash League title after they made it seven wins in a row with victory against Hobart Hurricanes.
  • Beth Mooney was bowled out cheaply again as she made it two games in a row without making double figures but it is a good sign that she can play poorly and her side can still go on to make a good score with less reliance on her needed.
  • Defending 157, they did not get off to the best of starts as the Hurricanes surpassed 50 without the loss of a wicket but the Heat rallied to take three quick wickets to leave their opponents at 59/3 and they never really picked up the pace again despite getting to within seven runs.

MELBOURNE RENEGADES WOMEN

  • It is crunch time for the Melbourne Renegades as they approach their last three WBBL fixtures of the season hoping to force their way into the semi-finals, but they were not helped by a shock defeat last time out and the loss of all-rounder Sophie Molineux will be difficult to overcome.
  • Molineux has decided to step away from cricket for the time being due to mental health issues and her side were unable to overcome her absence as they were beaten by seven wickets as Melbourne Stars chased down a big total with four balls to spare which meant Amy Lanning’s rapid 73 off 49 balls went to waste despite her side scoring 165/3.
  • Maitlan Brown had a poor day with the ball as she went at 12 an over and failed to take a wicket but she had little chance of helping her side defend their total in the final over as the Stars scored the two runs they required for victory.

THE PREDICTION

Melbourne Renegades have shown during this competition that they can put in some big performances even if they do not always claim the win. That will need to be the case in this game but the result has to follow too if they want to stay in contention for a place in the knockout stage. Their shock loss to Melbourne Stars leaves them in a perilous position but things look like they will get worse for the Renegades with Brisbane set too have too much for them and the Heat should be able to make it eight wins in a row.
