The Melbourne Renegades Women have been extremely disappointing after making a strong start to the tournament by winning their first game. Having a six-game losing streak has severely harmed their chances of making the top four. Having a win under their belt on their most recent outing will do them a world of good, and they will hope to maintain this momentum.
The bowling unit did an outstanding job, limiting Sydney Thunder Women to 121 runs and taking 6 wickets in the innings. The bowlers did an excellent job of picking up wickets at regular intervals and denying the batsmen any momentum. Shabnim Ismail took two wickets, but Ella Hayward was the star, taking two wickets and allowing only 14 runs in four overs.
The Batting Department made certain that the hard work of the bowlers was not in vain. However, while chasing 121, the top order collapsed, causing the Melbourne Renegades some issues. Captain Sophie Molineux and Courtney Webb ensured that they did not blow this match, scoring 55 and 29, respectively.

Similarly, despite winning their first game of the tournament, the Hobart Hurricanes Women’s have struggled to find a rhythm or momentum in their subsequent matches. They have blown hot and cold and are unable to string together results. Coming into this game after a loss will also not help.
The top order was in the locker room before the fourth over because they were limited to 3-20. Mignon du Preez, who batted in the middle order, resurrected their innings with a magnificent 73 off 54 not out. Nicola Carey, who contributed 30 runs, was a big help to her. Given their poor start, finishing at 164-7 was an excellent result.
The Bowling Department was almost there, but a wild innings from Laura Harris took the game away. Molly Strano and Maisy Gibson were outstanding, each taking two wickets and allowing less than six runs per over. They lost a game they should have won due to poor death bowling. The Hobart Hurricanes will look to replicate their performance against the Melbourne Renegades from the reverse fixture.
