Sam Bates and Heather Knight bowl Thunder to victory

Sydney Thunder 3 for 80 (Trenaman 38) beat Brisbane Heat 7 for 30 (Knight 3-4) by 14 runs (DLS method)

On another weekend of rain-dodging, the Sydney Thunder were able to make it back-to-back victories as spinners Sam Bates and Heather Knight combined to take five wickets between them in their two overs in a Brisbane Heat chase reduced to five overs. The Heat were left needing 45 after the calculations, as the match was able to resume moments before the cut-off, and they took 11 off the first over. However, left-arm spinner Bates changed the game with a double-wicket maiden in the second over – her first scalp the big-hitting Grace Harris – which left the Heat too much to do. Knight, who starred with the bat the previous day, claimed three wickets in her six deliveries which gave Sammy-Jo Johnson the comfort of 24 to defend in the last. The Thunder had started well with the bat as Rachel Trenaman and Tammy Beaumont added 71 but they had lost 3 for 6 in two overs when the rain curtailed their innings.

Adelaide Strikers 4 for 70 (Taylor 30) v Perth Scorchers 1 for 25 – No Result

The Perth Scorchers were on course for victory before their game at Drummoyne Oval became the latest to fall to the weather. Despite losing Sophie Devine to the hugely promising Darcie Brown for a duck in the second over, they were halfway towards their seven-over target of 52 when the weather closed in again after 2.5 overs of the chase. The Strikers innings had struggled to get going as they were 3 for 28 after 7.1 overs with Taneale Peschel claiming 2 for 5 in two overs, but Stafanie Taylor gave a brief glimpse of her power with 30 off 16 balls.
