Sciver: Doing Well Executing Our Plans

Perth Scorchers game-changer Natalie Sciver has praised the side's bowling attack after it yesterday setup a win that toppled the Rebel Women's Big Bash League's ladder-leading Sydney Thunder.

The Scorchers moved back into the top four finals group after the eight-wicket win at #TheFurnace, with all-rounder Sciver playing a crucial role in the triumph with an unbeaten 61 and among a bowling group that restricted the Thunder to just 134.

Sciver said there were plenty of positive signs out of the game for the Scorchers, who now travel to Alice Springs to take on the Adelaide Strikers on Saturday and Sunday.

"We know they (Strikers) have batters who can take the game away from us, but I think we have been doing really well at executing our plans and we're getting better and better as a bowling unit," Sciver said.

"With the batting, we'll just continue what we've been doing.

"Our openers have been getting us off to a really good start in games, which kind of takes the pressure off us in the middle."

Saturday's fixture is a double-header, with the WBBL clash followed by the Scorchers' KFC Big Bash League blockbuster against the Strikers.
