THE TEAM NEWS

PERTH SCORCHERS WOMEN

  • Perth Scorchers returned to winning ways with a thrilling victory over Adelaide Strikers in a contest that went down to the last game of the innings but Heather Graham held her nerve to guide her side to victory.
  • The Scorchers have now followed up every loss with a victory in this season’s Women’s Big Bash League but will hope for more consistency from this point on after they racked up their largest score from their six games so far.
  • Opening pair Amy Jones and Meg Lanning combined for 141 which helped the Scorchers to 173/3 and although the Strikers pushed them all the way in the chase, Graham conceded just three runs off the final four balls of the innings as the Scorchers held on for the two-run win.

SYDNEY THUNDER WOMEN

  • Sydney Thunder continued their unbeaten run and following a six-wicket victory over Hobart Hurricanes, they have now won the last four matches they have played that have reached a conclusion.
  • Nida Dar was the pick of the bowlers as she took 2-16 from her four overs and that helped to restrict the Hurricanes to 148/6 with the Thunder aided by some poor bowling from their opponents in their chase.
  • The Hurricanes allowed 29 extras and with Rachel Priest notching her highest score of this year’s competition so far with 50, the Thunder were able to reach their target with 11 balls remaining to claim the win.

THE PREDICTION

Perth Scorchers will hope their recent form against Sydney Thunder can help them to win back-to-back games for the first time in this year’s WBBL. The Scorchers have been inconsistent so far and their L-W sequence now stretches to six matches. They will face a tough test against the Thunder who are enjoying a superb start to this competition and with just one defeat to their name so far, they should be able to maintain their unbeaten run to extend their lead at the top of the ladder.
