Probable Best Performers from MS-W vs PS-W
Probable best batter: Beth Mooney
Beth Mooney has been the top run-scorer of this season so far with 431 runs in just 11 innings and has been very consistent at the top. She remained unbeaten on 75 off 51 balls against Sydney Sixers in the last game and will be looking to continue her impressive form.
Probable best bowler: Alana King
Alana King did not pick up a wicket in the previous game and was expensive in her three over spell. However, she has got a knack of picking wickets. With 15 wickets in 12 games, King is the top wicket-taker for the Perth Scorchers side this season and she will be looking to add some more to her wickets column.
