The Perth Scorchers have named an unchanged 13-player squad for a huge weekend of rebel Women’s Big Bash League action, with matches against the Melbourne Renegades and the Sydney Thunder at the Sydney Showground Stadium

The Scorchers are coming off consecutive wins against a strong Sydney Sixers team and can consolidate a top four position on the WBBL table with two wins this weekend.

Beth Mooney’s incredible innings against the Sixers on Wednesday means she is now the competition’s leading run scorer with 287 at a stunning average of 71.75.

Meanwhile, Sophie Devine has cleared the rope in WBBL|06 more than any other batter (10 sixes) and is two sixes away from becoming the first player to record 100 in the tournament’s history.

The Perth skipper has scored 164 runs at an average of 82 across her last three WBBL innings against the Sydney Thunder, including two half-centuries.

 

Scorchers coach Shelley Nitschke said;

“It was really important for us to put in two strong performances against the Sixers.

“Sophie and Beth are combining well at the top, and we’re starting to see valuable middle order runs from the likes of Megan Banting.

“Our bowlers put in a solid performance against the Sydney Sixers, but overall we’re starting to see valuable contributions come from a number of players which is really pleasing.”
