Melbourne Renegades Women

In one of the extremely close matches on Sunday in Mackay, the Melbourne Renegades women's cricket team got their campaign off to a great start by beating the finalists of the 2021 Adelaide Strikers women. They defeated the Adelaide side by a margin of 4 wickets with one ball to go. The winning runs for Melbourne Renegades were hit by Sarah Coyote. The top 3 batters for Melbourne Renegades were Sophie Molineux, Hayley Matthews, and their wicket-keeper batter Josephine Dooley. They hit 32, 22, and 29 runs respectively from 35, 15, and 27 balls.

These contributions at the top of the order for Melbourne Renegades women got them off to a flier against the Adelaide Strikers women. Surprisingly in this game, none of the batters hit a sixer. Even though Hayley Matthews looked to be the most impressive bowler of the lot with one wicket from 17 runs from her quota of 4 overs, it was the Melbourne captain Sophie Molineux that led the bowling attack for Melbourne against Adelaide. She is a left-arm spinner and she dismissed the number 3, 4, 5, and 6 batters from the Adelaide side.
