THE TEAM NEWS

MELBOURNE RENEGADES WOMEN

  • Melbourne Renegades secured a thrilling victory over Sydney Sixers to extend their winning run in the Women’s Big Bash League to three matches and that statement win could be the platform they need to build on.
  • The Renegades looked set to have a low total to chase down having performed well with the ball but a late flurry of runs from Marizanne Kapp helped the Sixers reach 139/4 to give the Melbourne side some work to do.
  • In reply, Danni Wyatt was the cornerstone of her side’s innings as she notched 57 off 43 balls but it was Courtney Webb who was the hero as she smashed a six off the final ball of the match to secure a two-wicket victory for her side.

BRISBANE HEAT WOMEN

  • Brisbane Heat continued their impressive form in their quest to defend their WBBL crown and come into this game at the top of the ladder after their fifth win in a row due to another strong showing in their win over Perth Scorchers.
  • The Heat won an important toss as they elected to field first and wasted little time as they removed both openers with just 10 runs on the board which set the tone for the innings as Jess Jonassen took four wickets for the second game in succession to help reduce the Scorchers to 112/8.
  • Beth Mooney hit another unbeaten half-century in response as she helped her side pick up an eight-wicket victory with almost four over remaining but Jonassen showed her value with the bat too as she chipped in with 32*.

THE PREDICTION

Melbourne Renegades are in the midst of a good run of form but will face another big challenge as they host Brisbane Heat. The Renegades became the first side other than the Heat to defeat Sydney Sixers in this year’s competition but must now overcome the Brisbane side if they are to make it four wins in a row. The Heat have been in devastating form of late and although they will be tested here, the reigning champions should be able to continue their winning run.
