Adelaide Strikers and Perth Scorchers are set to lock horns in Match No. 47 of the Women’s Big Bash League on Wednesday, November 17 at the Karen Rolton Oval, Adelaide, South Australia.
The Scorchers, led by Sophie Devine, are currently placed third in the points table with a net run rate of 0.654. If they win their next game, they will leapfrog the Melbourne Renegades to go top of the table. The Scorchers have been on a roll since beating the Hobart Hurricanes and Melbourne Stars.
Their previous game against the Sydney Thunder failed to produce a result due to the interruption by rain. After batting first, the Scorchers scored 184 on the back of Beth Mooney’s 83 and Chamari Athapaththu’s 70, but were unable to see out the second innings due to poor conditions.
The Strikers, led by Tahlia McGrath, have done an even better job. They are on a four-match winning streak and a win will strengthen their grip amongst the top four teams. The Strikers defeated Brisbane Heat in their last match after Katie Mack’s unbeaten 48-ball 54.
