Match 37 of the Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) 2022 between the Sydney Sixers and Melbourne Renegades ended in a no-result after rain abandoned play. With this, both teams shared one point each, which places the Sixers one point shy of table-toppers Brisbane Heat, while the Renegades still occupy the seventh spot with 5 points.

However, the Sydney-based club has played one match less than Brisbane.

Put into batting, the Renegades got off to a solid start with openers Hayley Matthews and Chamari Athapaththu in the middle.

​Matthews, in particular, took on the charge, adding 40 runs off 41 balls. Australia's Ashleigh Gardner got the better of Matthew, having her caught by Suzie Bates for a well-made 40.

​Erica Kershaw joined Athapaththu, but rains soon interrupted play.

​Both batters remained unbeaten on 16* and 4*, respectively, with umpires deciding to call players off the field and soon abandoning the match with Renegades on 64 for 1.
