Hobart Hurricanes Women lock horns against Melbourne Renegades Women in the 49th match of the Women’s Big Bash League 2021. Harrup Park in Mackay will host this exciting contest.
Hobart Hurricanes are languishing at the bottom of the points table. They suffered a heavy loss against Adelaide Strikers in their last fixture. After electing to bowl first, the bowlers did a fine job of restricting Adelaide Strikers Women to 142 in their 20 overs.
What followed was a disappointing show from the batters as they were knocked over on 94 in the 19th over. Only three batters managed to get into double figures and need to be at their absolute best in their next outing against the Renegades.
Melbourne Renegades, on the other hand, are sitting comfortably at the top of the table. They defeated Sydney Thunder in a close-fought contest in their previous game.
After being asked to bat first, the Renegades Women posted 175 on the board, thanks to a brilliant innings of 81 from Harmanpreet Kaur. The bowlers struggled to pick up wickets as Smriti Mandhana of the Sydney Thunder smashed a century.
However, they held their nerves in the end to win the game by four runs. They will be high in confidence after that win and will be looking to continue to perform in the same way.
