The team led by Heather Knight defeated the Perth Scorchers Women by a commanding 9 wickets to snap their losing skid. The squad made a tremendous recovery after appearing to have lost momentum throughout the most important part of the competition. Knight hopes her team to replicate the same success since the Adelaide Strikers will not be an easy opponent in the park.
With Phoebe Litchfield, Chamari Athapaththu, who had a brilliant knock against the Scorchers, will want to have an electrifying debut. With Tahila Wilson and Marizanne Kapp in the middle order, Knight, who looked excellent in the last game, will try to add ruins. In the bottom middle order, they may also anticipate fast runs from Olivia Porter, Sammy-Jo Johnson, and Anika Learoyd.
Athapaththu and Marizanne Kapp need to take early wickets in the match since the Adelaide Strikers’ hitters will be pressing them. In the middle overs, Samantha Bates, Lauren Smith, and Hannah Darlington need to bowl well. A strong performance by Knight and Sammy-Jo Johnson in the supporting roles will also be necessary for the Thunder Women.
