Cricket news - WBBL: Winless streaks for Stars and Strikers continue
Melbourne Stars vs Perth Scorchers, Melbourne
Perth Scorchers romped home to a nine-wicket win over Melbourne Stars, thanks to a 147-run opening stand between Amy Jones and Meg Lanning. Chasing 150, Jones (70 off 55) and Lanning (68* off 59) put on an aggressive stand, setting up an easy chase wrapped up with the help of Natalie Sciver with five balls remaining in the match. Earlier, Stars got off to a good start, putting on 50 and 53 runs for the first two wickets, but Heather Graham and Samantha Betts shared five wickets between them to spark a collapse and limit the hosts to a chaseable total. This was Stars' fifth consecutive loss.
Brief Scores: Melbourne Stars 149/6 in 20 overs (Elyse Villani 59; Samantha Betts 3-21) lost to Perth Scorchers 151/1 in 19.1 overs (Amy Ellen Jones 70, Meg Lanning 68*) by 9 wickets
Sydney Thunder vs Adelaide Strikers, Wollongong
Sophie Devine's 62 not out off 58 balls led Sydney Thunder to a six-wicket win over Adelaide Strikers, who recorded their fifth loss on the trot. Nida Dar picked a couple of wickets but the run-chase, completed with five balls left, was never in doubt. Opting to bat first earlier, Thunder lost Alex Blackwell just after a mediocre powerplay and the team never recovered from a sluggish start. Timely strikes didn't allow partnerships to flourish. Rachel Haynes finished the innings with 33 not out off 27 but a target of 113 was never going to be enough.
Brief Scores: Sydney Thunder 112/4 in 20 overs (Rachel Haynes 33*) lost to Adelaide Strikers 113/4 in 19.1 overs (Sophie Devine 62*, Nida Dar 2-24) by 6 wickets
Melbourne Renegades vs Brisbane Heat, Melbourne
Jess Jonassen's 63 not out off 29 balls didn't just help a slow innings off its feet but also fired Brisbane Heat to their sixth win on the bounce. Molly Strano and Georgia Wareham picked a couple of wickets but Jonassen's whirlwind innings helped add 50 runs in the last three overs, taking the target beyond the Renegades. The hosts in response lost Sophie Molineux in the powerplay to Sammy-Jo Johnson, who finished with 2 for 27. Danielle Wyatt scored 40 off 18 but her wicket in the eighth over slowed things down.
Brief Scores: Brisbane Heat 153/5 in 20 overs (Jess Jonassen 63*; Georgia Wareham 2-27) beat Melbourne Renegades 147/9 in 20 overs (Danielle Wyatt 40; Sammy-Jo Johnson 2-30) by 6 runs
Sydney Sixers vs Hobart Hurricanes, Sydney
An unbeaten half-century from Nicola Carey and a stunning opening spell from Belinda Vakarewa helped Hobart Hurricanes snap a four-match losing streak and record a surprise five-wicket win over Sydney Sixers. The much-fancied Sixers, missing regular captain Ellyse Perry due to injury, were kept down to 134 for 7 thanks to Vakarewa scything through the hosts' top-order. Inside the PowerPlay, the Sixers were left tottering at 29 for 4 with Vakarewa claiming each of the four wickets. Marizanne Kapp, with the bat, provided the much-needed intervention, her unbeaten 55 off 40 balls giving the scoreboard a semblance of respectability.
Kapp led a similar charge with the ball in hand too, claiming 3 for 23 but Nicola Carey's half-century, coupled with useful middle-order contributions from captain Corinne Hall and Chloe Tryon allowed seventh-placed Hobart to register a third win of the season with eight balls to spare. Sixers, on the other hand, are third on the table with six wins out of 10.
Brief Scores: Sydney Sixers 134/7 in 20 overs (Marizanne Kapp 55*; Belinda Vakarewa 4-19) lost to Hobart Hurricanes 139/5 in 18.2 overs (Nicola Carey 55*; Marizanne Kapp 3-23) by five wickets
