While the wicket at the Junction Oval does provide some assistance for the batters despite the surface being bouncy, the bowlers would need to toil hard for wickets after the initial overs. Even though it is a typical flat pitch, both teams would be looking to stick to their strengths and the captain winning the toss could bat first.

Beth Mooney has been outstanding throughout this season, having amassed 356 runs so far and is currently the highest run-getter for the Perth Scorchers. Mooney had scored a match-winning 90 runs off just 58 deliveries as the Scorchers went on to register a thumping 104-run victory over the Melbourne Renegades in the previous game. She would be expected to showcase consistent performances going forward.
Probable best bowler: Alana King
The Australian spin sensation Alana King had had a memorable outing so far with the ball in hand. She has registered 15 scalpls to her name and would be a threat to any opposition going forward in this competition. King was impressive in the last game against the Renegades as she finished with figures of 2/18 from her four overs at an economy of 4.50.
