We are into the last leg of the league games in Women’s Big Bash League 2021 and the 53rd game would see the Hobart Hurricanes Women would be up against Sydney Thunder Women. The Hurricanes caused a major upset in the last game defeating the Melbourne Renegades Women. The Sydney Thunder Women also won against the Brisbane Heat Women in the last game.
This will be an inconsequential game for both sides as they are out of contention for the next round. Sydney Thunder Women have dominated the rivalry between the two sides winning the last 8 games between them. Both the sides would like to finish on a high here and it would be interesting to see which of the sides ends up winning the game.
Rachel Priest’s side surprised everyone to defeat the table-toppers Melbourne Renegades Women in the last. It was arguably their best performance of the season where they won by 52 runs, but it was too little too late as they are out of contention for playoffs. They bring their campaign to an end here and Priest would look to sign off on a high winning this game.
Ruth Johnston played a good knock in the last game, and she would look to provide a similar start here with Rachel Priest. Mignon du Preez also did well in the game, and she would look to play a strong hand in the middle order with Richa Ghosh and Naomi Stalenberg. Nicola Carey, Molly Strano, and Sasha Moloney shall be tasked with doing the big hitting down the order.
Tayla Vlaeminck will have to bowl tighter lines with the new ball sharing it with Belinda Vakarewa. Ruth Johnston bowled brilliantly in the last game and a similar effort would be expected from her in the game. Strano, Carey, and Moloney played the supporting act well in the last game and the same would be needed from them here.

Hannah Darlington’s side did well in the last game against Brisbane Heat Women by 9 runs. However, this isn’t enough to drive them into the next round. They produced a good show with the ball in the last game and playing their last game of this edition the side would look to win this game.
Smriti Mandhana is in excellent form, and she would aim at providing a good start along with Sammy-Jo Johnson. Phoebe Litchfield also made runs in the last game and she would have to hold the middle order together with Isabelle Wong and Deepti Sharma. Down the order, Tahlia Wilson and Darlington must play the finishers’ role well in the game.
Isabelle Wong and Sammy-Jo Johnson were expensive in the last game, and they would look to improve their lines here. Samantha Bates has been the best bowler for the side, and she will have an important role to play. Sharma, Darlington, and Lauren Smith will need to come up with tight spells in the game.

The skies over Mackay would be clear on November 20. The wicket is flat, and this has allowed batters to score runs easily on the track. There isn’t much on this surface for the bowlers. The side batting first in this game shall aim at a target of 170 runs to feel comfortable on this surface.
Harrup Park, Mackay is a small ground and we have seen batters make big scores here. Fast bowlers get an early moment with the new ball, but the wicket is overall batter-friendly. Spinners on the other hand have struggled at this venue as the shorter size of the boundary makes it difficult.
The wicket has played well so far, and we have seen big scores being made and chased easily on this track. There hasn’t been much for the bowlers on this surface. The side that wins the toss in this game would have little hesitation in opting to bowl first.
Hobart Hurricanes Women have struggled in most of the games, and they have failed to show their consistency so far. Most of their batters have been in poor form and this has created problems for the side. Sydney Thunder Women haven’t also been at their best, but they have enjoyed an excellent record against Hobart Hurricanes, and this would make them favorites to win the game.
