EbeneInfo – AU – Sixers’ finals hopes no longer hanging by a thread after loss to the Renegades


Sydney Sixers’ hopes of sneaking into the WBBL final received a hammer blow after a six-wicket loss to the Melbourne Renegades at the North Sydney Oval

A thunderous batting performance from Lizelle Lee, along with a strong batting and field hand from Courtney Webb, was enough for the Renegades to chase Sydney’s total of 4-166 with five balls in reserve

The Sixers can advance to the final in theory, but must beat Meg Lanning’s Melbourne Stars on Sunday and hope more results fall in their direction

The Renegades won the draw and it didn’t take long for them to start regretting their decision to send the Sixers, with former company Alyssa Healy and Elysse Perry taking the start to bring the Sydneysiders to 104 lossless after 12 overs

Healy was generally aggressive and wasted no time trying to put together a big total, rising to 63 out of 38 deliveries before being perplexed to chase a wide one from Molly Strano, who drew her in. out of his fold

Perry went a few balls later for 37 when Webb took one of the season’s catches The star skied an offside and Webb reloaded before launching into a full dive to complete a brilliant game of ground She dropped a babysitter soon after but, with Perry out of there, the damage was done

The momentum started to slip out of innings after that, with the Renegades playing well enough to reduce the middle order and actually hold onto the fight Spinner Ella Hayward was conceded just 18 of her three overs and was specific enough to ensure there was no significant delay

A total of 166 seemed underwhelming given the quick start and it would turn out to be, Lee seeing them as beach balls since the opening as she led the successful chase Her 79 out of 45 deliveries included nine limits and four sixes as she punished all stray bullets and many that weren’t

Sophie Molineux (4) and Josie Dooley (5) went cheap but Lee has found a willing partner in Amy Satterthwaite (17), who won’t be in a rush to watch a poorly designed reverse sweep that saw her clean up bowled, and Webb, who was undefeated on 46 to guide the Renegades home to the final with four in a row over Perry
