Sophie Devine’s side come into this game at the WACA needing to put a disappointing performance behind them as they were well beaten by Sydney Thunder Women by 9 wickets with 23 balls remaining on Saturday. However, they are still well placed in the table.
After a strange off-day with the bat at Cricket Central against Sydney Thunder Women in Match 44, Perth Scorchers Women will be looking to their opening pair of Sophie Devine and Beth Mooney to build a strong platform in this game. Amy Jones could be promoted up the order for this fixture after hitting 37 runs from 16 balls in the last match.
The bowling attack will also be expected to perform to a much higher standard in this clash after they produced zero wickets in their last game. Nat Sciver-Brunt should get good pace and carry from this wicket and Alana King should get the ball to turn as well as bounce in Perth.
Perth Scorchers Women had won four games in a row before their heavy defeat to Sydney Thunder Women.

Although a place in the top four and advancement into the knockout stage is out of reach for Melbourne Stars Women, they still managed to pick up an impressive victory against Brisbane Heat Women at the Junction Oval on Sunday. The Stars are in good form and Perth Scorchers Women will not intimidate them in this game.
Sophia Dunkley will bat in an aggressive manner at the top of the order and comes into this match after hitting three fours and three sixes in his 37 runs from 24 balls against Brisbane Heat Women. The entire top four for the Stars will be crucial to their chances against Perth Scorchers Women.
Annabel Sutherland will arrive in Perth in strong form after taking 2/33 in Match 47 but it is left-arm spinner Sophie Day who will be the leader of Melbourne Stars Women’s attack. She is the leading wicket taker in the tournament and will be a threat on this pitch.
Melbourne Stars Women have won two of their last three matches in this WBBL competition.
