Start Time - 3.10pm AEDT start
Date - 01 February 2018
Location - Optus Stadium, Perth
Opposition - Perth Scorchers
Scorchers Overseas: Katherine Brunt, Natalie Sciver & Thamsyn Newton
One To Watch: Katherine Brunt - The Scorchers English overseas is the competitions leading wicket taker going into finals with 22 wickets. Brunt bowls with aggression as well as skill and she will be the bowler that the Thunder batters will be most wary of.
The sides have met twice already this season with 1 win apiece. It was the Thunder who won the first encounter by just 1 run in a thrilling encounter at Lilac Hill in Perth. Thunder set 145 from their 20 overs, Priest top scoring with 42. In reply the Scorchers finished just 1 run short after some excellent bowling/fielding from the Thunder.
The second meeting just a day later was one to forget for Thunder, as they produced one of their less memorable performances of an otherwise excellent campaign. It was their bowling, that had been so strong the day before, that was the root of their downfall, allowing the Scorchers to cruise to an 8-wicket victory at the WACA.
