WBBL08 Weekly Wrap: Edition 3

IN our weekly wrap-up of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL), let us catch up on all that happened in the WBBL in the past week.

Brisbane Heat (5/120) defeat Sydney Thunder (7/139) via DLS

Despite a brilliant 50 from Phoebe Litchfield, the rain was not the friend of the Thunder as Brisbane got the win via the Duckworth-Lewis system.

There were some impressive bowling performances from both sides, with Nicola Hancock and Jess Jonassen picking up two wickets each for the Heat and Lea Tahuhu picking up three for the Thunder.

Adelaide Strikers (8/140) defeated Brisbane Heat (10/109)

Despite the Strikers’ huge score, the top scorer was Laura Wolvaardt‘s 46.

It was really a day for the bowlers though, with Hancock and Jonassen picking up three wickets each for the Heat, while Jonassen’s Aussie teammates Megan Schutt and Darcie Brown each picked up four for the Strikers.

Adelaide Strikes (4/112) defeated Perth Scorchers (5/111)

Adelaide made it two from two for the week with a win over the Perth Scorchers.

Brown and Amanda-Jade Wellington were the pick of the bowlers for the Strikers with a pair of wickets each, while Katie Mack‘s 47 helped guide Adelaide home for the win, despite facing some great bowling from Lilly Mills (3/17 off three overs).

Sydney Sixers (2/96) defeated Hobart Hurricanes (8/95)

After a bowling masterclass from the Sixers (and some help from the rain), the target was a pretty easy one for those in pink to chase down.

Ashleigh Gardner‘s 43 with the bat was off the back of a brilliant spell from the Sixers’ star with the ball (4/23 off three overs). Sophie Ecclestone also had a great game with the ball, picking up 2/16 off her three overs.

Melbourne Stars (4/92) defeated Melbourne Renegades (10/91)

The first Melbourne Derby in Victoria in several years resulted in a dominant display from the Stars.

Sophie Day (4/19 off four) and Annabel Sutherland (3/17 off four with one maiden) went to town with the ball, before Sutherland’s 42 not out with the ball helped guide those in green home.

Perth Scorchers (7/140) defeated Brisbane Heat (7/137)

This one was a nailbiter with the result coming down to the final ball to be decided, but the Scorchers held on for a narrow win.

Despite the Scorchers’ big score, no one scored more than Amy Edgar‘s 36 not out.

Jonassen had another great game with the ball for the Heat, picking up 3/22 off her four overs.

Meanwhile Mills (2/19 off two), Alana King (2/23 off four) and Marizanne Kapp (2/23 off four) all had great innings with the ball for the Scorchers.

Sydney Sixers (3/188) defeated Melbourne Renegades (9/151)

Despite the Melbourne Renegades’ best efforts, the Sixers’ mammoth total proved to be just too difficult to chase down.

For the Sixers Suzie Bates (66) and Alyssa Healy (78) for the team off to a great start with the bat, while Maitlin Brown (3/16 from four) and Lauren Cheatle (3/28 off four) both had great spells with the ball.

Meanwhile for the Renegades Sophie Molineux (2/48 from four overs) and Carly Leeson (52) both had great performances despite their side falling short.

Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Thunder (2/79) – No Result
