Venue: Allan Border Field, Brisbane.
Adelaide Strikers will take on the Perth Scorchers in their fourth game in the tournament while they won two games and while losing a game they haven’t been quite dominating with their performances. Perth Scorchers who lost their tournament opener went on to win the second game comfortably.

Lauren Winfield scored 23 runs off 27 balls before she was run out in the 15th over. While defending the score of 113 runs the bowlers made every run count and defended the total winning the game by three runs.
Perth Scorches, on the other hand, come into this game on the back of strong performance, in their previous game chasing a score of 146 runs set by Brisbane Heat chased down the target with 10 balls to spare. Meg Lanning scored 60 runs from 49 balls and Amy Jones scored an unbeaten 55 runs at almost run a ball. Together they stitched 129 run partnership for the first wicket and took their team to an easy win registering their first win of the tournament.
