The season hasn't begun as per plan as both Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Renegades have managed to win just one out of the three matches so far in the ongoing Women's Big Bash League (WBBL). Thus, needless to say, it’s going to be an intriguing affair as both these teams will aim for a win when they face each other at the Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide on October 24. 

After losing to Sydney Sixers and Renegades earlier in the season, the Strikers finally managed to get a win under htier belt by three runs in the reverse fixture against Sixers. Bowling has been their primary strength and that is one area that they would like to back themselves in. Their batting runs deep but they are yet to show their class.

Coming to Renegades, they have already defeated the Strikers earlier in the tournament and thus, know the formula. Their bowling has been pretty average so far in the tournament and that is one area that the team needs to massively improve in. When it comes to batting, everyone is chipping in and contributing as no particular player is stealing the show.
