The team which failed to qualify for Finals last season by a whisker is Melbourne Renegades. This year for sure they will be coming strong and will be eyeing on the trophy.
Coming to the team there are two major changes in the squad. The skipper Amy Satterthwaite who is on maternity leave and speed gun Tayla Vlaeminck who has joined Hurricanes this season will be missing from the squad.
Though they are missing them, the squad looks settled in all the departments.
Coming to the batting, Jess Duffin will lead the department and they have some exciting English players Tammy Beaumont and Danni Wyatt who are excellent players of this format. All-rounders Sophie Molineux and Molly Strano will add depth to the batting.
In bowling, Renegades have one of the best bowling attacks which are lead by Lea Tahuhu, followed by young Aussie International Georgia Wareham, Sophie Molineux, Molly Strano, etc.
Compared to all the seasons, they look strong on the paper and they will be eyeing for the championship this time.
