In the meanwhile, Sydney Thunder Women remain mired near the bottom of the standings. Out of 12 games, they have only been able to win one, and they have lost eight in total. They’ve already been eliminated from the competition with only five points to their name.
In their most recent match, Sydney Thunder Women suffered an eight wicket defeat to Melbourne Renegades Women. The Thunder batters, who were asked to bat first, never got going and were bundled out on 95. Sammy-Jo Johnson and Lauren Smith each took one wicket, but it wasn’t enough as they were unable to stop the total from being reached.
The two teams have had very different competitions thus far. The Thunder Women are floundering at the bottom of the table, while the Sixers Women are comfortably seated at the top. On Friday, the Sixers Women will undoubtedly start as the favourites to win.
