Melbourne Renegades would look to bolster their chances of making the semis when they meet out of sorts Hobart Hurricanes at the Junction Oval on Saturday. The Renegades are sitting at the fourth position on the points table but are only one point adrift of Perth Scorchers, the other contender of the fourth spot on the WBBL standings. Melbourne Renegades have gathered momentum in the last few outings although they could not get a desirable result in the last fixture against Sydney Thunder.
Meanwhile, Hobart Hurricanes have nothing left to achieve in the competition and would look to spoil Melbourne Renegades’ party. It’s their last game of what has been a disappointing Women’s Big Bash campaign but would want to bow out on a positive note.
