Earlier, Sydney Sixers Women won the toss and opt to bat first. Ashleigh Gardner, a seasoned campaigner, stepped in to provide impetus. Her aggressive batting compensated for Perry's slower start, propelling the Sixers to a total of 68 runs with just one wicket down in the first 10 overs.
As Gardner departed after scoring 37, Perry began to accelerate, accumulating 50 runs from 41 balls before her dismissal. Unfortunately, Burns couldn't make a significant impact. The real highlight of the innings came from Chloe Lesleigh Tryon, who played a blazing cameo, scoring 41 runs off just 16 balls, including five maximums.
