Melbourne Stars Women vs Sydney Sixers Women

Sydney Sixers Women won by 45 runs

In spite of the fact that the run chase could have gone in either direction, once spin was introduced to the game, Gardner, Bolton, and Ecclestone proved too much for the struggling Melbourne Stars Women batting line-up. There was some hope from Alice Capsey and Jemimah Rodrigues, but they blinked at just the wrong time, giving the Sixers Women the win. It was essential that Annabel Sutherland kick on and score big, but once she departed cheaply, most hopes of winning this match were shattered. Tess Flintoff was the only player left to make an impact, as she played shots and took the attack to the opposition but got caught by a loose delivery! Kim Garth top scored, but it was not enough for the rest of the batting lineup.

It was very impressing match with the Sixers Women's fielding throughout the game. Four catches were taken by Suzie Bates, and some of the ground fielding was outstanding. In every way, the fielding complemented the bowling. Having no chance of qualifying, the Melbourne Stars Women have even less chance of qualifying, while the Sydney Sixers Women are leading the table with 15 points. Sydney Sixers Women won the 40th match against Melbourne Stars Women by 45 runs.
