THE TEAM NEWS

SYDNEY SIXERS WOMEN

  • Sydney Sixers maintained their record of only losing to Brisbane Heat in this season’s Women’s Big Bash League as they proved far too good for Sydney Thunder in their most recent game.
  • The Sixers have now won all six of their games that have been against teams other than the Heat after the 40-run win over the Thunder in which they dominated with both bat and ball in an impressive display.
  • Ellyse Perry continued her fine form as she amassed 81 to help her side to a total of 152 and that set the platform for the win, with the bowling unit doing a great job to take eight wickets and restrict the Thunder to just 112 in reply.

MELBOURNE RENEGADES WOMEN

  • Unless Hobart Hurricanes can perform a big turnaround, it looks as though it will be six teams competing for four spots in the knockout stages but Melbourne Renegades must continue their recent form if they are to be one of those teams.
  • The Renegades made it back-to-back victories as they saw off the Hurricanes for the second time in quick succession but the second win was a lot more dominant as they produced a strong all-round display.
  • Molly Strano was the pick of the bowlers as she took 3-19 to help restrict the Hurricanes to 108/8 and the Renegades made light work of chasing that total down as they picked up an eight-wicket victory with over four overs to spare.

THE PREDICTION

Sydney Sixers know a victory will put them on the top of the ladder and in a great position to advance to the knockout stages, regardless of the results in the other games this weekend. They have put themselves where they are on the back of six wins from eight games with their last two performances laying down a big marker. They face a Melbourne Renegades side here who have won their last two but the Sixers are likely to be too good and should make it seven wins from nine.
