The second match of the quadruple header on Saturday will see Melbourne Renegades taking on a star-studded Sydney Sixers outfit at the W.A.C.A in Perth.
This promises to be an exciting match with both teams having a fair share of match-winners on their side. While Sydney Sixers will go into matches as the clear favorite due to the number of match-winners at their disposal, Melbourne Renegades would do well to take inspiration from Brisbane Heat. After winning their first match easily, the Sixers were trounced by Brisbane Heat as they were bowled out for a mere 73 while trying to chase down a target of 166. However, to their credit, Sydney Sixers bounced back very well by defeating Melbourne Stars through some outstanding bowling from the rapid Marizanne Kapp.
Their opponent on the day, Melbourne Renegades, has been similarly inconsistent. After four matches, Renegades have two wins and two losses and hence the upcoming match against Sydney Sixers will be a very crucial one given that the latter has an extra game in hand. Although the team has quite a few impressive players, their inconsistency can be attributed to the mixed returns from the batswomen. English recruits, Danielle Wyatt and Tammy Beaumont, in particular, have flattered to deceive so far.
Led by Jess Duffin in the absence of Amy Satterthwaite, Melbourne Renegades are another team with the ability to make the semi-finals this season. Thus far, they have had an average start and would want to get a good run of results starting from Saturday's match against Sydney Sixers. When one looks at the statistics for Renegades’ players, Jess Duffin stands out with 156 runs from four matches. Unfortunately for them, two reputed T20 cricketers in the form of Tammy Beaumont and Danielle Wyatt haven’t come to the party yet.
Bowling-wise, Renegades have been superb just like the other teams with Maitlan Brown being the best out of the lot with 7 wickets at an economy rate of 6.30.

Maitlan Brown, Danielle Wyatt, Sophie Molineux, Lea Tahuhu, Molly Strano, Josie Dooley, Tammy Beaumont, Carly Leeson, Courtney Webb, Jess Duffin, Georgia Wareham
Alyssa Healy, Ellyse Perry, Ashleigh Gardner, Dane Van Niekerk, Marizanne Kapp. The names keep on coming. It would be no exaggeration to say that this is one of the best T20 women squads that has ever been assembled. The team is also a well-settled one considering that there haven’t been too many changes to the squad when compared to the previous season. Why would you make plenty of changes after finishing top of the league and only failed in the final encounter of the season? Such stability will always keep them in good stead and thus they are the favorites to lift the WBBL title this season.\
However, all said and done, potential and talent will only matter if it is converted into performances and Sixers would be well aware of that fact after suffering a bad loss against Brisbane Heat in their second match. Apart from that match, Sixers have been predictably flawless in the other two matches. Yet, when they take on Melbourne Renegades, the Sixers management would want someone who doesn’t go by the name of Ellyse Perry to come up with a big knock. The sample size is small but Sixers wouldn’t want to be heavily dependent on just one player. When it comes to their bowling efforts, Sixers have been pretty consistent with the likes of Kapp, Perry, Van Niekerk and Sarah Aley contributing to the team's cause.

Historically known as the quickest pitch in the world, the famous W.A.C.A ground in Perth isn’t the same as it was 15-20 years ago. Although the ‘Freemantle doctor’ could assist some movement in the air, Perth has often produced good batting tracks in the recent past. So, more of the same could be expected on Saturday. When it comes to the weather forecast, there could be a very brief afternoon shower but that shouldn’t really disturb this match.
No introduction is needed for the W.A.C.A Stadium in Perth. One of the most popular grounds in the world, a heaven for quick bowlers. Although the stadium has been displaced as the best ground in the city due to the brand new Perth Stadium, W.A.C.A still holds a special place in the hearts of cricket lovers. Hosts T20 league matches apart from Test matches that doesn’t involve India or England.
Toss could be a pretty tricky aspect at this venue but batting first might just be the favoured option for the captain who wins the toss. With good carry and pace, batswomen could just enjoy the W.A.C.A surface. Batting first is almost an anomaly these days given how chasing is the most preferred option in T20 cricket but this game will be the best occasion to try it out.
It is hard to go against Sydney Sixers given the obvious quality in their line-up but this game could be a close one. Sixers should still be able to sneak in the win but Renegades would make it tough for them just like how it planned out in the semi-final between these two teams last year. The battle between Marizanne Kapp and Ellyse Perry against Tammy Beaumont and Danielle Wyatt will predictably decide the match.
