Match 24: Melbourne Renegades Women v/s Hobart Hurricanes Women.
Time: 7:30 AM IST/ 01:00 PM LOCAL
Venue: Junction Oval, Melbourne
Melbourne Renegades women’s team will play against the Hobart Hurricanes at Junction Oval, Melbourne on Saturday. Melbourne Renegades, as well as Hobart Hurricanes, are yet to find their momentum in this year’s WBBL. Both of them have played 6 games so far with winning 2 games out of it. Hobart Hurricanes are placed on 5th number on the points table with 5 points in hand and one of their matches being abandoned due to weather conditions which was played against Sydney Thunder, so the points were shared. They have got a well-balanced team but the strategies haven’t been working out on the field so far.
Melbourne Renegades on the other side are placed just below Hobart Hurricanes on number 6th on the points table with 4 points. The side is strong and capable of out-performing their opponents, they have done it before and its time they do it again.
Weather and Pitch Report
The weather forecast for the match-day is cloudy and some rain showers could be expected. With such circumstances, the team winning the toss would like to bowl first, so as to be the advantage team when it comes to the DLS method.
Head to Head
In the previous five games, encounters between these two sides have been pretty uptight, with one match resulting in a tie and remaining out of four, three have been won by the Melbourne Renegades, one being won by Hobart Hurricanes.
