Latest Match Report – Renegades vs Scorchers 34th Match 2023/24

Perth Scorchers 134 for 0 (Devin 70*, Mooney 47*). Melbourne Renegades 133 for 5 (Warham 57*) 10 wickets

Perth Scorchers stars Sophie Devine and Beth Mooney piled on more pain to lead their side to a 10-wicket WBPL thumping of the struggling Melbourne Renegades.

Devine and Mooney smashed the Renegades’ bowlers to all corners of the Junction Oval in Melbourne on Saturday to seal the Scorchers’ sixth win of the season with 52 balls to spare.

New Zealand captain Devine scored an unbeaten 70 off 36 balls, hitting 8 sixes and leveling the Renegades completely. Australia ace Mooney’s unbeaten 47 off 32 balls was relatively tame in comparison to Devine’s fireworks.

Devine took a liking to Sarah Goyt, the Renegades bowler hitting 40 runs in her two overs, including four sixes.

It was Devine and Mooney’s third century in their last four matches, following a partnership of 131 against the Brisbane Heat and 105 against the Renegades in their previous encounter.

The Scorchers’ big win came after Australia’s spinner Georgia Wareham scored an unbeaten 57 as the Renegades reached 133 for 5.

The hosts struggled to get out after skipper Hayley Mathews’ slow exit on 8 off 15 balls. Even with international stars Mathews and Harmanpreet Kaur in their XI, the Renegades’ campaign turns out to be a disaster.

Amy Edgar was the standout bowler for the Scorchers with 2 for 14 in her four overs including 16 dot balls.
