MR-W vs PS-W match highlights

MR-W vs PS-W match highlights: The rain delayed match saw Melbourne Renegades claimed a victory by 8 wickets over Melbourne Renegades in the 53rd match of the Women’s Big Bash League on Sunday.

The first game of the last day of group round was cut short by rain, and was decided to play 16 overs competition.

Adelaide Strikers after winning the toss opted to bowl first and didn’t let Perth batters open their arms by restricting them to just 46 in 8 overs at the time play has been stopped again due to rain. The officials then asked Melbourne to chase the target of 57 in 8 overs as per the DLS method.

Renegades after facing a shaky start tasted success in the final game of the eight edition of the Women’s Big Bash League.

Perth batters reached the middle with a final four spot in mind, as a win in this game would provide them a minor chance to advance to the next stage of the tournament.

But, Renegades bowlers have some other plan in their minds, as they didn’t allow the opposition batters to play freely. They kept the things extremely tight.

First they dismissed the highest run-scorer in the tournament so far, Beth Mooney for duck. Then Maddy Green in the fourth over of the game.

Sophie Devine (24* off 22) the skipper of Perth Scorchers and Marizanne Kapp (13* off 12) then tried to rescue their side by steadily running the scoreboard but unfortunately the rain had occurred once more.

Perth was just at 46 for 2 in 8 overs at that time and the game then reduced to 8-over per side, with Melbourne required 57 to win in 8 overs.

It was not the start what Melbourne wanted to finish their run in this season, as they lost both of their openers in the first over itself.

Nothing was going in their favour, as they faced another shock when two more batters walked back when the team were on 15.

With 42 more to win 28, Erica Kershaw (34* off 18) and Carly Leeson (9* off 9) took the responsibility on their shoulders and did everything right to hand their side a victory in their final match of the season.

11 to win in last over, Erica struck three consecutive fours to finish the game with 3 balls to spare.

The defeat in their final game halted Perth Scorchers chances to advance for the next round on a super thrilling final day, where all teams in action and berth for the finals on card.

Despite Sydney Sixers having clinched first place and the right to host the final at North Sydney Oval on the following Saturday, second place and the opportunity to host The Challenger were still up for grabs.

The Heat have done enough to guarantee their position in the finals, but three clubs, the Hobart Hurricanes, Adelaide Strikers, and Perth Scorchers, were still in the running for the final three spots.

However, with Perth’s defats, Hobart and Adelaide are now worry free to advance.
