Women's Big Bash League 2022 Match 33

In the 33rd Women's Big Bash League 2022, the Sydney Thunder will take on the Melbourne Renegades Women. In a must-win match, two teams at the bottom of the points table face off. Sydney Thunder Women cannot afford another loss, and Melbourne Renegades Women, if they lose this match, will almost certainly exit the tournament.

Only 2 points from 7 matches for Melbourne Renegades Women. Furthermore, they have a net run rate of -1.011, which is the worst in the industry. With 163, Carly Leeson is their top run scorer. Having an economy rate of 7.47 runs per over, Sophie Molineux takes their most wickets with 9 wickets. If they fail to win here, they will make life extremely difficult for themselves in terms of qualifying for the semi-finals. There is no alternative but to win for the Sydney Thunder Women. The team has a net run rate of -0.822 after nine games and is on 4 points after nine games. Phoebe Litchfield's batting, which has helped her climb to third in the highest run scorers of the tournament, has been the only thing that has caught their attention so far. The number of runs she has behind her already stands at 238. Lauren Smith, who has taken 9 wickets at an economy rate of 588 runs per over, will be their key bowler. They should go for victory here, as that is the simple thing to do. It is now all about winning every game from here on out for them and that is all that matters.

As the captain who led from the front and remained on until the very end, Sophie Molineux succeeded in crossing the finish line comfortably throughout and with a dozen balls to spare in the end. In the end, she hit a number of boundaries to complete the chase as she remained not out at 57. Three down for just 30 runs in the fifth over did not bode well for the Renegades. As a result, Webb and Molineux were able to put together a 52-run partnership, which kept them ahead of their opponents.

Despite a good start and good bowling, Thunders were unable to keep the game close due to one partnership. 2 wickets for Darlington. A wicket each for Bates, Smith and Vakarewa. As Molineux finished the chase off in the 18th over of Vakarewa's bowling, she gave away three boundaries in her last over as she bowled really well.
