Renegades complete stunning chase

20 January 2017

The Renegades have chased down 149 in the penultimate over against the Sydney Sixers

The Renegades have completed the highest run chase of WBBL|02 for their fifth win in six matches.

Set a target of 149 by the Sixers, the Renegades chased it down with eight balls to spare thanks to several important contributions.

Rachel Priest and Sophie Molineux got the ball rolling in the run chase with their opening partnership of 42 coming from just 31 deliveries.

A feature of the innings was how the scoring never dipped too far below the required rate after the opening over, even following the fall of a wicket.

Priest, with three sixes and two fours in her 44, anchored the first half of the run chase.

When she departed, Kris Britt took over, striking at better than a run a ball.

Grace Harris’ wicket left an equation of 36 off 29 balls for the Renegades when Maitlan Brown came to the crease.

The 19-year-old immediately started to dominate the Sixers’ bowling attack, dispatching them to all parts of North Sydney Oval.

With 13 required off the last 11 deliveries, Brown instead ended it in three off the bowling of Sarah Aley.

Four, four and then a big six emphatically ended the contest and earned Brown the honours of player of the match.
