The Hobart Hurricanes will be locking horns with Perth Scorchers in the eighth match of the Women's Big Bash League 2022 at the Blacktown International Sportspark in Sydney on Monday, October 17. Both teams would be heading into this contest on the back of contrasting fortunes. 

The Hurricanes have been very impressive so far and occupy the second position in the points table, having won their first match against the Sydney Thunder by 19 runs. They currently have two points to their tally at an outstanding NRR of 0.950 and would be hoping to better that with yet another clinical performance. 

While the victory might not take them to top spot in the points table, they could be well on the course to challenge the Sydney Sixers who are comfortably placed at the top having won all three matches. The Perth Scorchers, on the other hand, would need a miracle from here on to pull off a win and register the first points to their tally.

Probable Best Batter of the Match

Mignon du Preez

Mignon du Preez might have scored 33 in the tournament opener against the Sydney Thunder, but that was a match-winning one and the South African middle-order batter has the reputation of playing impactful knocks. She would be expected to showcase more such consistent performances going forward.
