India captain Harmanpreet Kaur kept her nerves under pressure as opener Jemimah Rodrigues scored a priceless 33 as Melbourne Renegades defeated hosts Hobart Hurricanes by six wickets in a Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) match in Hobart on Saturday.

In the pursuit of 122, Rodrigues and skipper Sophie Molineaux (16 out of 16) shared 22 runs for the opening grandstand before the latter took off.

Rodrigues, whose knock came from 34 balls and was laced with two boundaries and a six, then racked up 68 runs for the second wicket with Courtney Webb (31) before three quick wickets made the chase a little tricky for Renegades.

With pressure building after the loss of quick wickets, it was up to the veteran Harmanpreet (24 not out on 19) to keep the innings together and get Renegades across the finish line. The Indian completed the job with four balls in hand and with a little support from George Wareham (5 not out) on the other side.

Previously, Renegades’ spin twins of Molineux (2/12) and Wareham (3/13) slammed on the brakes before facing Hurricanes for 121.

Harmanpreet also registered her name in the list of wicket-takers, taking the wicket from compatriot Richa Ghosh, who played a cameo with 14 balls and 21 runs.

Meanwhile, in the second game of the day, Smriti Mandhana and Deepti Sharma failed to live up to their reputation as their side Sydney Thunder lost by 30 runs to Adelaide Strikers here.

Adelaide Strikers, who was sent off as a batter, rode skipper Tahlia McGrath’s 42 and Madeline Penna’s 35 to set a competitive 140 for seven.

Deepti Sharma proved to be expensive with the ball, conceding 32 runs from her four overs while being good for one wicket.

During the chase, Indian duo Mandhana (4) and Deepti (4) were unable to shine with the bat as Sydney Thunders was knocked out for 110.

Both matches were played behind closed doors under strict biosecurity protocols after the state of Tasmania went into lockdown for three days following a COVID scare on Friday.
