THE TEAM NEWS

MELBOURNE RENEGADES WOMEN

  • After three successive narrow defeats, Melbourne Renegades showed some strong character to come out on top of yet another tight contest as they claimed victory over Hobart Hurricanes with the final ball of the contest.
  • The Renegades’ bowling unit struggled on the whole and were unable to build on a good start that saw them restrict the Hurricanes to 40/4 but ultimately allowed them to rack up 150 runs from their 20 overs.
  • The run chase got off to the worst start possible when Sophie Molineux was sent packing after just three balls and when Tammy Beaumont and Danny Wyatt followed soon after, it was down to Jess Duffin to produce a captain’s knock of 75 which helped her side to the win.

HOBART HURRICANES WOMEN

  • Hobart Hurricanes were unable to build on a strong start to their defence of 150 as they allowed Melbourne Renegades to get back into the game and eventually condemning the Hurricanes to defeat with the last ball of the match.
  • The Hurricanes did not get off to the best of starts after they were put in to bat but a 92-run fifth wicket stand between Fran Wilson and Corinne Hall helped their side to a total that was more than defendable with captain Hall ending unbeaten on 50.
  • It looked like the Hurricanes were well on their way to victory after removing the top three in the order for just 12 runs but they could not kick-on and the Renegades were able to score the three runs they needed in the final over to seal the victory.

THE PREDICTION

Melbourne Renegades got back to winning ways but were unable to avoid another tight contest as they faced Hobart Hurricanes. They now face off again in a game that the neutrals will hope is just as close as their meeting yesterday and that is likely to be on the cards with the Renegades involved. The two teams are evenly matched and although the Hurricanes are capable of reversing the last result, the win last time out should give the Renegades the confidence to make it back-to-back wins.
