The rain in Australia has ruined the WBBL as expected this year. The match between Hobart Hurricanes and Adelaide Strikers was stopped after rain interfered in the 16th over. While Melbourne Stars suffered a similar fate when two of their matches were called off without a ball being bowled.
The rain played the villain as the Sydney derby was set to go as planned. The Sixers and Thunder were ready to play for the important points, but even before the players could grace the field, the match was called off as the rain ruined the pitch.
Even after a lot of efforts from the staff to get the pitch and field ready, it wasn’t possible for any matches to be played on the ground at all.
While in the Hobart Hurricanes and Strikers match, the Strikers were off to a decent start as they had made 107 runs for 5 wickets as Preez made 39 runs and Stalenburg was stuck on 21 when the rain invaded the match.
