Melbourne Renegades have won once and lost once in their two matches so far. They are placed in the fourth spot in the points table. Curiously though, Perth Scorchers are yet to play a single game so far and hence would be participating in their first encounter tomorrow. The side from Melbourne might just start as the favorites to emerge victorious in this match as one is generally unaware of what to expect from the Scorchers.
2019 Women’s Big Bash League
Junction Oval, Melbourne
October 23rd, 2019
7:30 AM IST
Sunny weather with no chances of rain and the temperature ranging around 26 degrees Celsius is expected during the course of the game.
The track at Junction Oval would be favorable to the batters as the nature of the pitch would be flat with little assistance to either the pacers or the spinners.
Predicted Playing XI:
Danielle Wyatt and Tammy Beamount constitute a formidable top order for the Melbourne Renegades whilst Jess Duffin would have quite a task up her sleeves to attain a positive momentum for her side. Georgia Wareham would be the key bowler.
Danielle Wyatt, Sophie Molineux, Tammy Beaumont, Claire Koski, Courtney Webb, Jess Duffin (C), Josie Dooley (WK), Maitlan Brown, Georgia Wareham, Molly Strano, Lea Tahuhu
Meg Lanning and Amy Jones would lead the batting order and be banked upon to pile up runs at the top whilst Natalie Sciver and Heather Graham would be the other integral figures in the Scorchers’ XI.
Meg Lanning (C), Amy Jones, Nicole Bolton, Natalie Sciver, Kim Garth, Georgia Redmayne, Heather Graham, Jemma Barsby, Piepa Cleary, Taneale Peschel, Emma King
Meg Lanning has been an absolute stalwart in the Women’s Big Bash League as she has racked up 15 half-centuries in the league and her natural prowess, experience and class as a batter certainly showcases that she is up for many more of those in the ongoing tournament as well. She should be a must-pick inclusion in the fantasy side. Danielle Wyatt played an exceptional knock of 61 runs in the Melbourne Renegades’ second match of the tournament. Wyatt can score runs aplenty at a brisk rate and that would naturally mean that she would notch up a significant number of points as well. Natalie Sciver and Nicole Bolton are the other players who can have a massive impact upon the game tomorrow.
