perw vs hbhw Match Prediction & Analysis

While the season is very new still, no team wants to be left behind and all sides will want to hunt for points. Hurricanes and Scorchers suffered heavy defeats, the former especially got a battering, and they would be gunning for those first points of the season. The Hurricanes can’t really look into their previous game and would want to forget that, as it was that kind of a game where everything goes wrong. The game was lost at the midway point itself and the rest was just a formality.

The Scorchers would rue their poor finishing with the bat, as they could have gotten a strong total of 160-plus but ended in the 130ish range. They have the resources, and would also want their top order to take more responsibility. All got a decent hit and it’s about converting that into sizable scores. Hurricanes will hope that their bunch turn up, because they simply didn’t last game at all. They are definitely not as bad as they showed last game and if they can play to their potential, this could be a tight game.

Teams Preview

Perth Scorchers Women Preview

They pulled off the biggest casting coup in signing by picking up Sophie Devine and Beth Mooney.  The duo got solid starts in the previous game, but couldn’t kick on which was unlike of both batters. They will want to take up more responsibility, and given their aggressive nature of play, even one of them coming off can put the Scorchers in pole position. The think tank would know that and having an experienced middle order should help the openers to play in their natural style throughout this season. The bowling could have been better though, and while they can be given the benefit of doubt due to a low score, they could have shown a better account of themselves. Still early days and the Scorchers would want to believe that rust was also a factor for the bowlers, just like it obviously was with the batters, especially the middle order. They do seem like a side that would depend on the batting to set up games up or chase whatever the bowlers can restrict the opponents too. Yet, the batters can’t be doing all the work.

Perth Scorchers Women Predicted Playing XI:

S Devine(c), B Mooney(wk), A Jones, N Bolton, H Graham, C Piparo, S Glenn, M Banting, J Barsby, P Cleary, T Peschel

Hobart Hurricanes Women Preview

After that disastrous opening game, it can only get better for the Hurricanes. Or so they would hope.  There is a not of newness in the batting order and it’s more to do with the positions than the inexperience of the resources. They would need to sort out their roles and positions quickly as this tournament can really bite you hard when momentum isn’t on your side. The top four does have a lot of firepower and can all singlehandedly seal games when on song. But they would need to know each other’s plans and play accordingly, as otherwise it could be boom or bust. It certainly was the latter in the opening game and that’s not an ideal T20 performance. The bowlers were effectively sidelined due to the extreme low score and can’t be faulted, although they did stretch the opponents till the 14th over. The Hurricanes would be desperate for a much more improved performance in this contest.

Hobart Hurricanes Women Predicted Playing XI:

R Priest(wk), N Stalenberg, H Mathews, N Carey, C Hall(c), E Kershaw, C Tryon, S Moloney, A Smith, B Hepburn, B Vakarewa

Weather Conditions

It’s expected to be a rainy weekend in Sydney with roughly 70 percent chance of rain and high humidity conditions. The surfaces are expected to be hard with decent pace and bounce to begin with, as the pitches are all fresh at this point.

Venue Details

Although not a high-profile venue in today’s era, Hurstville Oval has been home to several Australian greats of yesteryear, none more significant than The Don himself. It’s a ground that’s usually been used for Club cricket in Sydney.

Toss: To Bat

While the surface is fresh, this is an afternoon game and that could make the captains want to bat first, although temperatures are cooler. The rain forecast is another factor, and that could make chasing a preferred option too. Seems like a good toss to lose.

PERW vs HBHW Winning Prediction

Both teams are coming off losses but the Hurricanes are probably still reeling from the kind of battering they received. The Scorchers are clearly a more superior side in terms of balance and having all bases covered. They have explosive top order and able middle order batters, and a bowling that has experience in its ranks. Considering all factors, the Scorchers look primed to win this fixture.
