WBBL|05 – Round Up Oct 20th – Wins for Melbourne Renegades, Hobart Hurricanes & Sydney Thunder
There were wins for Melbourne Renegades, Hobart Hurricanes & Sydney Thunder in the WBBL|05 today, in Australia.
Adelaide Strikers v Melbourne Renegades at the Karen Rolton Oval, Adelaide
The Melbourne Renegades have defeated the Adelaide Strikers by five wickets, thanks to a match-winning knock by England import Danni Wyatt.
Adelaide Strikers 152 – 5 (Sophie Devine 48)
Melbourne Renegades 154 – 5 (Danni Wyatt 61, Tammy Beaumont 41)
Result - Melbourne Renegades won by 5 wickets
Strikers captain Suzie Bates won the bat flip for the second day in a row and chose to bat first at Karen Rolton Oval.
Sophie Devine led the way with the bat again making 48, supported by Bridget Patterson (38), Tahlia McGrath (24) and fellow Smash Sister Bates (24).
A total of 5/152 was tough to defend on the Karen Rolton wicket, with Wyatt's boundary-riddled 61 and Tammy Beaumont's 41 propelling the Renegades.
Devine (2/32) was best with the ball, but it was an lbw from Bates to remove Beaumont and then an Alex Price run-out that suddenly turned the game on its head.
But a couple of expensive overs followed and the Strikers were unable to capitalise on the momentum.
Josie Dooley hit a boundary to bring up the winning runs on the final ball of the 19th over.
The Strikers next take on the Hobart Hurricanes and the Perth Scorchers at Brisbane's festival weekend on 26 and 27 October.
