LIVE - Sydney Sixers vs Adelaide Strikers - Match 8
Adelaide Strikers won their first match of the Women’s Big Bash League 2020 by 8 wickets.
Laura Wolvaardt was the top run-scorer for Adelaide Strikers with 51* runs. She made her runs at a strike rate of 121, hitting 8 fours.
Amanda Wellington and Darice Brown were their best bowlers with 2 wickets each. Brown was the more economical of the two with an economy of 3.25.
They will be up against Sydney Sixers who just missed out on a semi-final berth in Women’s Big Bash League 2019, finishing at the 5th place after the group stage. They have been set back by Lauren Smith's departure to Thunder, but will be more than pleased with the inclusion of Angela Reakes and Lisa Griffith (Thunder).
Ellyse Perry was their top scorer last year and though the injury-plagued all-rounder may not be able to bowl this season, she will be more than handy with the bat. Explosive opener Alyssa Healy will be just as crucial.
Protea all-rounder Marizanne Kapp was their top wicket taker last season with 15 scalps at 20.20 and will continue to lead their bowling attack.
Let's have a look at the squads of both teams:
Adelaide Strikers - Tahlia McGrath, Annie O Neil, Laura Wolvaardt, Bridget Patterson, Katie Mack, Amanda Wellington, Madeline Penna, Tegan McPharlin (wk), Sarah Coyte, Megan Schutt (c), Darice Brown, Suzie Bates, Stafanie Taylor, Ellie Falconer, Alex Price
Sydney Sixers - Alyssa Healy (wk), Ellyse Perry (c), Jodie Hicks, Ashleigh Gardner, Dane van Niekerk, Marizanne Kapp, Erin Burns, Stella Campbell, Hayley Silver-holmes, Lisa Griffith, Angela Reakes, Lauren Cheatle, Sarah Aley, Maddy Darke, Emma Hughes
