Melbourne Renegades and Adelaide Strikers will cross swords in the Challenger of Women’s Big Bash League 2021 at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday, 25th November, with a place in the final against Perth Scorchers being at stake.
The Renegades, thanks to some of their new acquisitions, had a fantastic start to their campaign. They lost only one of their first seven matches, and through Perth Scorchers handed them a defeat in their eighth match, Renegades then embarked on a four-game unbeaten streak. Sophie Molineux’s girls would have made it to the final directly, had it not been for two back-to-back defeats in their last two outings.
Adelaide Strikers, on the other hand, won only two of their first seven matches but went on to secure five victories in the second half of the competition. They took on Brisbane Heat in the Eliminator, where they handed Jess Jonassen’s team an 8-wicket defeat.
Almost every player who took the field against Brisbane Heat in the eliminator justified their place in the Adelaide Strikers’ playing XI. Hence, it will be a big surprise if the Strikers’ think tank makes any changes for this game. Though Dane van Niekerk did not have a great game against Brisbane, the South African all-rounder has been a consistent performer for her team.
Though they lost their last game against Brisbane Heat quite convincingly, Melbourne Renegades might be tempted to field an unchanged playing XI for this game. There is, however, room for a bowling alteration. Ella Hayward did not have a great game against Brisbane and she could be replaced by Carly Leeson, who has played 10 games already in this season’s WBBL.

Katie Mack has been a handy contributor for Adelaide Strikers for a while, but this is the season where she has transitioned from being a supporting cast to being the protagonist herself. She has scored 476 runs and is the only Adelaide batter to have crossed the 400-run mark. Mack has scored four half-centuries in her last five matches, which includes an unbeaten 50 against Brisbane Heat in the eliminator clash.
