Date and Day: 19 October 2019, Saturday.
Match 2 – Adelaide Strikers Women vs Melbourne Renegades Women.
Time: 9:00 AM IST.
Venue: Karren Rolton Oval, Adelaide.
Both the teams haven’t fared well in the history of the tournament so far qualifying just once for the Knockout stages. Adelaide Strikers have roped in a good foreign contingent for this year’s tournament. With Stafanie Taylor in their ranks, they have one of the best in the business in their team. They have also signed in the 16-year-old fast bowling sensation in Darice Brown.
Melbourne Renegades have a strong team on paper, even though they miss out on two of their biggest names in Amy Satterthwaite who is on maternity leave and Tayla Vlaeminck who has joined Hurricanes this season. The squad looks settled on the paper and would be eager to change the records, this is going to be an interesting year for Melbourne Renegades under new leadership.
