The Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Sixers will square off in the 14th game of the Women’s Big Bash League 2023 on October 28 at Melbourne’s Junction Oval.
Following an 81-run victory over Adelaide Strikers, Melbourne Renegades are coming off a disappointing eight-wicket loss to Sydney Thunder. With a 23, Tammy Beaumont got off to a respectable start, but the top-middle order was unable to help. They managed to produce a modest total of 147 runs despite Courtney Webb’s 31 and Georgia Wareham’s undefeated 47.
Sydney Thunder’s opening team easily exceeded the 100-run threshold during the match. Wareham’s performances as a wicket-taker were noteworthy, but they were not fully matched by the rest of the bowling attack.
Conversely, the Sydney Sixers Women fell short of table-toppers Brisbane Heat by three wickets in their third straight WBBL 2023 match. The Sixers failed to establish a competitive target even with a strong 49 from captain Ellyse Perry. The squad scored 146/8 with Chloe Tryon’s 42 being a standout effort, while the rest of the team struggled.
The Sixers’ bowling unit did not succeed in stopping Brisbane Heat from achieving the target, despite taking seven wickets.
