History repeats and questions arise in WBBL

ACROSS the two matches yesterday in the WBBL there was some history repeated and some big wins for more reasons than one.

History repeats as Adelaide too strong for Stars again

History has repeated itself already this season as the Adelaide Strikers have beaten the Melbourne Stars for the second time in the space of a couple of days.

The Stars batted first and although looked wobbly at times recovered to post 6/133. However that was not enough as although the Strikers almost ran out of balls, still made the score with four wickets in the shed and two balls spare.

Katie Mack led the way for the Strikers with the bat making 48, while with the ball it was Megan Schutt who was the pick of the bowlers with two wickets to her name. Meanwhile for the Stars Maia Bouchier’s 48 provided some late resistance in their batting innings, then Alice Capsey and Sophia Dunkley both picked up two wickets each with the ball.

Brisbane too hot for Sixers

The Brisbane Heat remain the only undefeated side this WBBL after they made it three on the trot with a three wicket win over the Sydney Sixers. This also consigns the Sixers to one of their worst starts to a WBBL campaign, who remain winless after three games.

The Sydney Sixers posted 8/146 from their 20 overs, but then the Heat chased it down with an over to spare. For the Heat Grace Harris and Georgia Voll top scored with 39 runs apiece, while Nicola Hancock, Jess Jonassen and Courtney Sippel all picked up two wickets each.

Meanwhile for the Sixers it was Ellyse Perry (49) and Chloe Tryon (42) who were by far their best with the bat, while Lauren Cheatle, Ash Gardner and Maitlin Brown all picked up two wickets each.
