Sophie Molineux’s team lost their last game against the Sydney Sixers Women due to rain. Until the skies opened up, the team did well with the bat. The team has had a disappointing season and is out of the playoffs. Molineux will want her players to approach this game with a positive attitude.
Hayley Matthews and Chamari Athapaththu must score more runs at the top with a higher strike rate. Erica Kershaw, Josephine Dooley, and Sophie Molineux play critical roles in the middle order and must form alliances. The team would also like to see good performances from Courtney Webb, Carly Leeson, and Sarah Coyte down the lineup.
The bowling attack has been struggling, and early breakthroughs from Molineux and Ella Hayward are critical. Matthews must bring her experience to this game and bowl tight spells with Rhiann O’Donnell and Sarah Coyte in the middle overs. Georgia Prestwidge must also perform admirably in this game.

Back-to-back defeats have harmed the team’s standing in the standings. Sophie Devine’s team was defeated by the Brisbane Heat Women by 33 runs in their last game and will be looking for a strong comeback. Their opponents aren’t playing well, which Devine will exploit in this game.
Beth Mooney has been in good form, and the team is expecting a strong performance from her and Devine at the start of the game. This middle order is led by Chloe Piparo, Maddy Green, and Marizanne Kapp, who will look to add quick runs. In the lower middle order, Mathilda Carmichael, Amy Louise Edgar, and Alana King add to the side’s batting strength.
Lilly Mills and Marizanne Kapp will look to bowl better lines and strike early than they did in the previous game. Devine has struggled with the ball, and she needs to perform well in the middle overs alongside Taneale Peschel and Alana King. Piepa Cleary and Amy Louise Edgar must perform admirably in supporting roles.
Beth Mooney(w), Sophie Devine(c), Chloe Piparo, Maddy Green, Marizanne Kapp, Mathilda Carmichael, Amy Louise Edgar, Alana King, Piepa Cleary, Lilly Mills, Taneale Peschel, Maddy Darke, Georgia Wyllie, Charis Bekker, Holly Ferling
