Womens Big Bash League 2022: Sydney Thunder Women vs Melbourne Renegades Women – Match 47 Preview and Updates

The two bottom-ranked teams in the WBBL points table will meet again in the league. The previous time these two teams met, the Melbourne Renegades won by 122 runs with 5 wickets in hand.

Sophie Molineux led the run chase, reviving the MLRW innings after an early collapse. Both teams would be looking for batting gains in the first game of the season in Canberra.

Melbourne Renegades have struggled to chase totals all season, but their victory over SYT should put them in a good mood going forward. Sydney Thunder had lost back-to-back matches chasing the exact total of 163 runs prior to their loss to MLRW.

There haven’t been any big hits from the key batters in SYTW. Though both teams are out of contention for the playoffs, they would like to finish sixth, the highest position possible for either team.

The 47th Match between Sydney Thunder Women vs Melbourne Renegades Women will take place on November 15th, 2022 at Manuka Oval, Canberra.

Sydney Thunder Women vs Melbourne Renegades Women

Sydney Thunder Women (Match Odds – 1.75):


Sydney Thunder would have suffered a third straight loss if rain had not interrupted play in their last game against Adelaide Strikers. In the 15th over, the bowlers had given up 92 runs for three wickets.

If the opposition had scored more than 150 runs, it would have been a difficult task for Syndey Thunder Women. SYT has failed to chase down a target twice in the last four losses, and has lost twice while defending a total.

Amy Jones, who took over for Tammy Beaumont in the last game against MLR, scored a fifty. It was rather slow, and the wicket-keeper batter from England would bet on her team getting off to a much better start this time.

Phoebe Litchfield, her opening partner, has a few good knocks at the top and is a promising player. The middle order, which includes Sammy-Jo Johnson, Rachel Haynes, and Chloe Tryon, is the most important aspect of the SYTW batting lineup. As you move down the order, the strike rates improve.

Haynes will be critical for the batters’ comeback, while Vakarewa, Lauren Smith, and Darlington will be key bowlers to watch. There is a lot of variety in this bowling attack, and anyone can step up and deliver for the Sydney Thunder Women.

Full Squad:

Tammy Beaumont, Phoebe Litchfield, Amy Jones, Rachael Haynes(c), Chloe Tryon, Sammy-Jo Johnson, Tahlia Wilson(w), Olivia Porter, Hannah Darlington, Lauren Smith, Samantha Bates, Belinda Vakarewa, Anika Learoyd, Lea Tahuhu, Corinne Hall, Samuel Bates, Jessica Davidson

Melbourne Renegades Women (Match Odds – 2.10):


Despite having one more victory than SYT, Melbourne Renegades are at the bottom of the points table with 5 points from 12 games.

With only two more matches remaining, we can expect some changes in the starting XI as MLR Women has nothing to lose. And experimenting with different combinations can yield some potential match-winners in the future.

The Renegades were in trouble after losing three wickets in the powerplay for only 30 runs while chasing a relatively low total against the Sydney Thunder. However, skipper Sophie Molineux came to the rescue at number 4 with an unbeaten 55 off 45 balls.

She was able to keep the innings steady and lead her team to their second win of the season. Melbourne Renegades Women have been at their worst since that victory. Back-to-back batting collapses have occurred, with no heroics from the captain or any other batter in the lineup.

They were bowled out for 80 against the Hobart Hurricanes, followed by an all-out score of 80 against the Perth Scorchers. Finally, the misery came to an end when the Renegades batted first against the Stars at Melbourne’s Junction Oval, scoring 148 runs.

Although Josephine Dooley’s fifty at number three lifted their spirits, it was still in a losing cause. In the batting order, Hayley Matthews, Dooley, Molineux, and Courtney Webb will be key players for MLRW.

There are a few promising bowlers in the squad who can make a big impact and even win games with the right support from the batters. With the ball, keep an eye out for Matthews, Sarah Coyte, and S Ismail.

Full Squad:

Hayley Matthews, Chamari Athapaththu, Josephine Dooley(w), Sophie Molineux(c), Courtney Webb, Carly Leeson, Erica Kershaw, Georgia Prestwidge, Sarah Coyte, Shabnim Ismail, Ella Hayward, Paris Bowdler, Rhiann O Donnell, Tayla Vlaeminck, Ellie Falconer, Evelyn Jones, Georgia Wareham
