1st Innings Summary  Captain Elyse Villani and wicketkeeper opener Amy Ellen Jones played aggressively and built 77-run opening partnership to give a solid as well as quick start to Perth Scorchers. Even after Villani got out in 8th over, Amy continued her assault on bowlers as Nicole Bolton joined in. Kate Cross also made some valuable runs in the middle order down the line. Ellyse Perry, on the other hand, used eight bowlers in 20 overs innings and Dan van Niekerk became the most successful bowler taking three wickets in her quota of four overs.

2nd Innings Summary  Although Sydney Sixers suffered an early blow as opener Alyssa Healy got bowled by Nicole Bolton on the last ball of 2nd over, but with Ellyse Perry playing a captain’s knock of  unbeaten 102 runs off just 59 balls alongwith Ashleigh Gardner and later with Dane van Niekverk ensured a well-deserved win for her team. None of the bowlers of the opponent team was able to put real pressure on the batters of Sydney Sixers as the latter reached the target with eight balls to spare.
