WBBL: Perth Scorchers return to Lilac Hill

THE Perth Scorchers will fire up Lilac Hill as the Women’s Big Bash League returns to the ground for a third consecutive year.

Swan Mayor David Lucas said the City was excited to partner with the Perth Scorchers and the WACA to host the cricket on December 29, 30 and January 6, at 10am.

“Last year’s series saw cricket fans come out in force to smash national attendance records – it was a phenomenal series that we were very proud to be a part of,” he said.

“I encourage all to come along for a fantastic free family day out and cheer on our Scorchers to Women’s Big Bash glory!”

All-rounder Bhavi Devchand said the Scorchers were looking forward to the three games.

“We play both Sydney teams at Lilac Hill, which means fans will get to see some of the best players from different countries around the world showcase their skills,” she said.

“It’s always a great carnival atmosphere too and I know plenty of families and kids really enjoy it, and it’s all free which means anyone can come down and get involved.

“The girls are always really excited for these games and I’m sure this season’s games will be bigger and better than ever.”

There will be a free shuttle bus from Guildford train station on a continuous loop from 9am until 2.30pm each game day.

Free parking will be at Lilac Hill, with entry via West Swan Road.

The Cricket Carnivale for the kids will include free rides and water inflatables, Scorchers activities, a fan photo booth and giveaways.

There will also be the Boundary Pop Up Bar and Eatery.
