    Weather forecast is pretty average.

    Would be unlucky to schedule the first & only match ever in the hottest place on earth and it gets washed out

    As is the case with rain affected matches, the team who bats second will likely win.

    What a shitty and irrelevant place to host.

    Why is this is in Alice Springs rather than Darwin?

    Probably because of the weather ironically.

    Looking at the WBBL game there now it looks like there is no chance of rain, it's warm and sunny.

    Pretty lucky for Alice Springs to get a top of the table clash between two of the best teams, it would have been a sell out or close to it in Perth or Adelaide.

    Yeah, it's a weird place to host a game. CA is probably giving away 40,000 in the crowd by not playing it in Adelaide.

    Voges out is a big blow for the Scorchers, they will really miss his 1 run.

    Anyone see the irony of the Strikers changing their shirt sponsor from West End to Drinkwise for today's game yet still having the West End signage on the field

    I thought all the extra home games this year were meant to be played at different venues to normal?!

    Pitch is flat and low. Outfield slow.

    140 could win this.

    It's a nice ground with the MacDonnell ranges in the background, it's like a poor man's Queenstown.

    Though Scorchers would play outside Perth somewhere. Also the Renegades outside of Melbourne.
