Harmanpreet smashes 65 from 32 balls as Renegades post second-highest total in WBBL history to defeat Brisbane Heat
Melbourne Renegades 4 for 207 (Harmanpreet 65, Jones 62, Rodrigues 52) beat Brisbane Heat (Kimmince 42, Falconer 4-29) by 15 runs
The platform was set for Harmanpreet’s hurricane finish to the innings. The India T20I captain launched six sixes and four fours to lift the Renegades total beyond 200. No Heat bowler was spared with Jonassen the only one to concede less than nine runs per over.
Falconer took the key wicket of Georgia Redmayne early in the chase. Georgia Voll made 40 from 28 balls and Laura Kimmince smashed 42 from 21 but was run out, failing to ground her bat when Josie Dooley produced a direct hit from a relay throw. Falconer and Harmanpreet closed the game out, taking key wickets at the death. Harmanpreet’s allround display earned her Player-of-the-Match honours for the third time in seven matches.
