Dominant Scorchers Crush Gades

A disciplined bowling effort and a dominant Sophie Devine innings guided the Perth Scorchers to a ten-wicket victory over the Melbourne Renegades at CitiPower Centre this afternoon.

Devine and Mooney smashed the Renegades bowlers to all parts of the Junction Oval in Melbourne on Saturday to bring up Perth's sixth win of the season with 50 balls to spare.

New Zealand captain Devine smashed eight sixes in her unbeaten 70 from 36 balls to completely flatten the Renegades.

Australian ace Mooney's 47 not out from 32 balls was relatively tame in comparison to Devine's fireworks.

Devine took a liking to Sarah Coyte, with the Renegades bowler going for 0-40 from her two overs.

The Scorchers' big hitting came after Australia spinner Georgia Wareham smashed a career-best 57 not out to help the Renegades reach 5-133.

The hosts struggled to get going after captain Hayley Matthews departed for a slow eight from 15 balls.

The Renegades' campaign is turning into a disaster, even with international stars Matthews and Harmanpreet Kaur in their XI.

They upset reigning champions Adelaide in their second match but have tumbled to seven-straight losses since to be on the bottom of the table with a 1-8 record.

Perth are back in action tomorrow, facing the in-form Sydney Thunder in a top-of-the-table clash at CitiPower Centre, starting at 7:10am WST.
