It is the Challenger game in the Women’s Big Bash League 2021 and the Melbourne Renegades Women would be up against the Adelaide Strikers Women in this high-stakes contest. The Renegades have dipped in form and the side has lost the last two games which would be worrying them. The Strikers on the other hand come here with a win against Brisbane Heat Women in the Eliminator game.
The Adelaide Strikers Women have shown tremendous form with the bat in the last two games, and this would add to their confidence. Playing at home they have better knowledge of the conditions. The Renegades have displayed good form apart from the last two games and we hope to see a very close contest in this game.
Sophie Molineux’s side lost a bit of steam in the lead-up to this game. The side lost the last two games and suffered a crushing 43-run loss against the Brisbane Heat Women in the last game. They would be up against a side that is looking in good form with the bat and Molineux would want her plyers to put up their best show here and earn a place in the final for the first time.
The side would rely on openers Jemimah Rodrigues and Evelyn Jones to deliver them with a good start in this high-pressure contest. In the middle order, the side has good hitters in Harmanpreet Kaur, Courtney Webb, and Josephine Dooley. They would also expect runs down the order from skipper Sophie Molineux and Jess Duffin.
Their bowling attack would face a steep challenge here and tight spells would be needed from Ella Hayward and Sophie Molineux in the early overs. Webb, Kaur, and Ellie Falconer haven’t been consistent with their line and lengths, and they will have to play a very important role here. Rhiann O’Donnell and Holly Ferling add to the bowling options for the side.

It was a tremendous show by Tahlia McGrath’s side in the last game against Brisbane Heat Women. They destroyed their opponents to win the game by 8 wickets. It is just the kind of performance the side needed ahead of the big game. McGrath would want her players to show the same spirit here and win the game.
Katie Mack looks in tremendous form and he would look forward to a good start opening the batting with Dane van Niekerk. In the middle order, the side has Laura Wolvaardt, McGrath, and Bridget Patterson in good form adding to the firepower. With Amanda Wellington and Madeline Penna to follow they have all their bases covered in the batting department.
Their bowlers made a good recovery after being taken to the cleaners in the last league game. Megan Schutt and Darcie Brown bowled tight spells with the new ball in the last game and they would aim to repeat the same form. Wellington bowled tight spells and along with McGrath and Sarah Coyte brings experience to their batting. Dane van Niekerk would need to play the supporting act well in this game.

Adelaide would see light clouds on November 25, and this would help the bowlers. The wicket has been a flat one and batters have scored runs on this track without much of a problem. The side that bats first in the game would need at least 160 runs on the board to feel safe.
Adelaide Oval has short square boundaries, and batters have always enjoyed the conditions at this venue, and we have seen big scores being put up here. Fast bowlers enjoy the conditions at this ground as there is assistance for them, but the spinners have struggled on most occasions as the ball doesn’t turn a lot.
All the seven games played at this venue have been won by sides that have chased the scores. It is a flat surface and very difficult to set score on as the wicket as a victory target helps the sides. Hence, the side winning the toss in this game would look to bowl first and dismiss the opponents to a small total.
Both sides have done well to be in this game. Melbourne Renegades Women but for their two losses leading up to this contest have been in tremendous form and the side shall look to regain form here and enter the finals. Adelaide Strikers Women come here after a big win. Their batters have peaked at the right time and look at their best. This would put them slightly ahead of Renegades in this contest.
