  • Hurricanes' players have notched up decent individual statistics with the likes of Belinda Vakarewa and Maisy Gibson featuring in the Top 10 wicket-takers list but the team hasn’t clicked as an unit.

Match Preview

Match 31 of the 2019 WBBL will witness Hobart Hurricanes taking on Sydney Sixers at Invermay Park in Launceston and the home side will definitely want to give a good account of themselves. After all, their campaign is on the line and they can’t afford any more losses. After securing just 5 points from 8 matches, Hobart finds themselves in a precarious situation. The fact that they were completely outplayed with both bat and ball in their most recent fixture against Melbourne Renegades wouldn’t have also helped one bit with their confidence levels.

While the usage of a key player like Chloe Tryon has been questionable, the larger problem lies in the fact that their other big players haven’t stepped up while others could also say that Hobart got it wrong with their recruitment. Anyhow, Hobart needs some wins under their belt badly and the likes of Heather Knight, Tayla Vlaeminck and Belinda Vakarewa need to step up quickly.

On the other hand, Sydney Sixers have got everything spot on. From recruitment to big players stepping up, Sixers have most areas covered. They are placed at 5th spot in the points only because they have played a game or two less than the other teams. However, in spite of the star-studded nature of the line-up, Sixers have had minor blips here and there and one such occasion was the last game against Brisbane Heat. Batting first, the Sixers weren’t at their best and only managed to post 123 on the board and this was clearly not enough for their bowling attack to defend. With the Hobart Hurricanes struggling for form, Sixers won’t get a better opportunity to put the last game to bed quickly and in style too.

Teams Preview

Hobart Hurricanes Women Preview

After a disappointing 2018-19 WBBL season, Hobart Hurricanes made some changes to the roster in the hope of doing well this season. But with a team that has placed a lot of emphasis on young Australian players taking a lot of responsibility, things haven’t panned out in a good way at all. The most important concern for the Hurricanes is the fact that the likes of Erin Fazackerley, Meg Phillips and Fran Wilson haven’t supported Heather Knight and Nicola Carey with some knocks.

Similarly with the ball Efforts with the ball have been much better with the likes of Belinda Vakarewa and Maisy Gibson standing up but yet again the support-cast has been disappointing. The exciting Tayla Vlaeminck has struggled for wickets and Heather Knight has also been a defensive option as the team's 5th bowler.

Hobart Hurricanes Women Predicted Playing XI:

Erin Fazackerley, Meg Phillips, Heather Knight, Nicola Carey, Fran Wilson, Corinne Hall (C), Chloe Tryon, Maisy Gibson, Tayla Vlaeminck, Emily Smith (WK), Belinda Vakarewa.

Sydney Sixers Women Preview

Even though the Sydney Sixers are still in a comfortable position with respect to the points table, they might be a tad disappointed with the inconsistency so far. After suffering a shocking loss against Brisbane Heat earlier in the season, Sixers lost their second game against the same team in the last match. When it comes to individual statistics, Ellyse Perry has obviously been the stand-out until now.

Her partner, Alyssa Healy hasn’t found consistency with her hundred against Melbourne Stars her only notable performance. With the ball, Dane van Neikerk, Marizanne Kapp and Sarah Aley have been decent but one can perhaps say that Sixers have lacked a proper wicket-taker until now. Sure, the above-mentioned names can pick wickets in bunches but it hasn’t happened until now.

Sydney Sixers Women Predicted Playing XI:

Ellyse Perry (C), Alyssa Healy (WK), Ashleigh Gardner, Erin Burns, Dane van Neikerk, Marizanne Kapp, Maddy Darke, Lauren Smith, Sarah Aley, Hayley Silver-Holmes, Lauren Cheatle/Stella Campbell.

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Weather Conditions

The pitches at this ground is somewhat of an unknown commodity as it has only hosted grade cricket in the past. However, some of the Hurricanes’ players have mentioned that the wicket looks really good for batting. With respect to the weather, the day is expected to be cloudy with 40% chance of rain.

Venue Details

Invermay Park in Launceston is a ground that is often used for grade cricket. Big Bash Cricket has generally been hosted at the Aurora Stadium but it’s unavailability means that Invermay Park will host WBBL cricket for the first time.

Toss: To Bowl

Given that the track will be used for the first time, it should be a good batting wicket. Hence, unless the wicket is underprepared, both the captains should look to field first.

Winning Prediction

Sydney Sixers have too much power for the Hurricanes to overcome. We expect the strong Sixers batting line-up to post a big total if they bat first or chase down any target that Hurricanes may set due to a bowling attack that shouldn’t really come across as a threatening one. At the same time, Sixers can’t take anything for granted as the home side badly require a win to keep themselves in contention for a semi-final spot.

Sydney Sixers to win!
