Perth Scorchers Women take on Adelaide Strikers Women in Women’s Big Bash League 2021 final at Optus Stadium in Perth on Saturday, November 27.
Perth Scorchers qualified for the final after finishing the league stage games at the top of the tally. The road wasn’t as smooth for Adelaide Strikers though. After a fourth-place finish, the team had to go through the eliminator followed by the challenger round.
The team faced a confident Brisbane Heat side in the eliminator and a brilliant bowling display guided them to an eight-wicket win. Melbourne Renegades awaited them in the Challenger round and another bowling brilliance allowed them a smooth passage into the final.
For Perth Scorchers, it took them until the very last league stage match to finish at the top table. Right until match 13, Melbourne Renegades acquired the top spot in the tally, but a defeat in their final league stage game against Brisbane Heat allowed Perth Scorchers to go over Sophie Molineux’s side.
