The second last-placed Melbourne Renegades will encounter the pretty-going Hobart Hurricanes in match 35th of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL 2022).
However, the Hurricanes are coming off a defeat against the high-flying Brisbane Heat on Sunday. While being put in to bat first, they amassed 164 runs. However, it did not turn out to be enough to defend as the Heat chased down the target well with two balls to spare. Mignon du Preez’s stable inning of 73, in addition to 30 runs from Nicola Carey, effectively contributed.
While defending, two wickets apiece from Molly Strano and Maisy Gibson assisted in slowing down the Heat batters; nevertheless, some flaws cost them the match, fixing them to the fifth spot with three wins.
In contrast, the Melbourne Renegades, who have not had a great outing so far in the WBBL 2022, finally secured their second win of the tournament. They overpowered the Sydney Thunder, exchanging the points table’s rankings with their rivals.
While defending, they conceded 121 and managed six scalps with the courtesies of Ella Hayward and Shabnim Ismail’s two wickets each. Despite a poor start to the innings, middle-order batters Sophie Molineux and Courtney Webb sprinted things up, amassing 55 and 29 runs, sequentially.
