The Perth Scorchers are expected to claim victory in this match to go up in the points table. This is due to the quality T20 players in their ranks who have been in good form as well. While the Renegades do not have bowlers who can strongly challenge the opposition batters when in full flow and need to compensate with an average-good batting department.
Melbourne Renegades are looking to be as same as their opponent, though their performance has been better than them. In the last game, the team were totally outdone by the performance of the top order of Adelaide Strikers. Harmanpreet and Jones did good with the bat, but those runs weren’t enough for the team. Bowling was not good at all, and they did let the opposition chase the target easily.
Jones has been scoring runs in a consistent manner is shorter formats of the game. In the last fixture, she scored 36 runs and can be trusted due to her ability to acclerate in a fine fashion. She can be a differential pick for your team, given her exposure to the Hundred in England.
The captain of Indian T20 team, Harmanpreet Kaur needs no introduction. She has been a proven performer in the white ball cricket, and if she maintains the same consistency, she can win the trophy for the Renegades team. In the last fixture, she scored 41 runs to help the team in posting a respectable total on the board, and picked up a wicket as well.
X-factor: The batter Courtney Webb can play a crucial knock for the Renegades team in this fixture.
Player to Watch: The all rounder Sophie Molineux will be looking to use her experience well and give them a good start and key wickets upfront.

Perth Scorchers have not had a good start to this season. Although, they won their first game in the super over, but were thrashed badly in the second one by 59 runs against Brisbane Heat. Batting was terrible, and no one performed individually, which could have taken them to a closer loss, and helped a bit in net run rate. Bowlers got hit for a lot, and it was visible with their performance. Heather Graham was excellent and picked up two wickets, giving out just 15 runs.
Beth Mooney has been one of the most consistent run scorers in thr Australian limited overs cricket. She can be the captain/vice captain pick for your fantasy team, depending upon your liking of players. In the last fixture, she scored 40 runs and will be confident of her abilities. She would be a vital player for Perth to secure a win.
Sophie will be the best pick of this game due to her experience and track record in the T20 cricket. Although she could not contribute enough in the last game, but will look to make a comeback by providing contribution in both departments. In the last fixture, she scored 20 runs and took a wicket and will a scope of improvement.
X-factor: Chamari has been an exquisite player in the T20 format and will look to be proficient in this fixture.
Player to Watch: Lilly Mills was terrific in the first match and is expected to perform well in this fixture.
