It was a total team effort on the part of the Adelaide Strikers Women as they put out yet another brilliant performance with the ball to dismantle favourites Melbourne Renegades and qualify for the final of the Women’s Big Bash League 2021. They will now face Perth Scorchers in the final on November 27 at the Optus Stadium. 

The match was actually no match in the Challenger as the Renegades Women were simply not able to put up any challenge and could score only 83-8 in their allotted 20 overs after falling to 30-6 in the ninth over with all their main batters including tournament’s top scorer Harmanpreet Kaur and opener Jemimah Rodriguez unable to make an impact in the big game. 

Sophie Molineux, the Renegades skipper wasn’t able to bat in the innings due to some problem and also bowled only two overs. 

For Strikers, Megan Schutt and Darcie Brown, two Aussie internationals picked two wickets each with Brown being declared Player of the Match for her early strikes and a spell of 2-9 in her four overs. 

Chasing the target the home team was not at all bothered as the openers Dane van Niekerk and Katie Mack put up a 72 runs stand in only 57 balls. While van Niekerk got out, Mack finished the job along with Laura Wolvaardt, winning the game by nine wickets and 55 balls remaining.
