The 15th game of the Women’s Big Bash League 2023 between the Perth Scorchers and the Melbourne Stars is scheduled to take place at Junction Oval in Melbourne on October 29. Melbourne Stars have dropped their last three games following their historic triumph over the Sixers in the first game. The Adelaide Strikers lost against Brisbane Heat by 13 runs after suffering two consecutive blows.
In the opening session of the latest game versus Heat, Alice Capsey and Annabel Sutherland worked together to take a few wickets. Kim Garth and Milly Illingworth helped limit the opposition to a sum of 150/6. But the batting order was poor, with the two highest run scorers being Capsey (52) and Garth (45), while the other batsmen were dismissed at 137/7 with very little single-figure contribution.
In the meantime, the Perth Scorchers recovered well, defeating the Hurricanes in the previous game by a convincing 7 wickets. Following a 50-run loss by Brisbane Heat in their opening encounter, they emerged victorious. With four points to their name, the Sophie Devine-led team is presently ranked third on the points table.
