Another day, another big match in the Women's Big Bash League is in the offing as the Sydney Derby is to be played out on Friday at the Drummoyne Oval. It will be two-time champions Sydney Sixers who will go into this match as heavy favourites. Except for a couple of losses against Brisbane Heat, Sydney Sixers have well and truly asserted their dominance. With an extra game in hand, Sixers are at the third spot in the points table but they are tied on 10 points with table-toppers Brisbane Heat and Adelaide Strikers. In the last match, Sixers rode on the back of a superb Ellyse Perry half-century to post a healthy 172-2 on the board. The total was defended comfortably through an all-round performance from the bowling attack.
On the other hand, Sydney Thunder would have to put two consecutive losses behind their back very quickly if they are going to have any chance of defeating Sydney Sixers. Both those losses came against Perth Scorchers in the space of 3 days as targets of 152 and 117 proved to be too big in the absence of regular skipper Rachel Haynes and Phoebe Litchfield. (Haynes only missed the first match against Scorchers)
One can never get tired of singing the praises for Sydney Sixers. That is how they are and it says something that a few might tend to think that Sydney Sixers haven't quite been at their best. Still, they have 10 points on the board and are not leading the points table only due to Net Run Rate. Just imagine if Sydney Sixers start to play at their best.
So far, it has been skipper Ellyse Perry who has led the show for her side with 351 runs in just 7 matches. Silently, Alyssa Healy has also notched up more than 200 runs for the season. Apart from them, there is however nothing much to write home about Sixers batting as only Ashleigh Gardner has crossed 100 runs in the tournament. With the ball in hand, Marizanne Kapp, Dane van Neikerk and Sarah Aley have been consistent in terms of both their wicket-taking ability and knack of controlling the run-flow. Although the other bowlers haven’t fired due to their inexperience at this level, Sixers wouldn’t be requiring fantastic bowling performances every team if their star-studded batting line-up continues with its consistency.
Ellyse Perry (C), Alyssa Healy (WK), Ashleigh Gardner, Erin Burns, Marizanne Kapp, Dane van Neikerk, Sarah Aley, Maddy Darke, Lauren Smith, Hayley Sliver-Holmes, Stella Campbell.

Just like the Sixers, Sydney Thunder to have a lot of quality in their batting line-up. The likes of Rachel Priest, Alex Blackwell, Rachel Haynes and Naomi Stalenberg are capable of winning matches on their own. So far, it has been Alex Blackwell who has been the Thunder's best batswoman 225 runs from 7 games. In spite of the presence of such quality players, one could say that Thunder missed the services of 16-year-old Phoebe Litchfield against Perth Scorchers.
That would reflect how good the youngster has been in her debut season. It's likely that Litchfield will miss more games as Sydney Thunder allowed her time to prepare for her Year 10 exams. Shifting our focus to the Thunder's bowling attack, one can describe their performances by saying that it has been a team-effort until now. Rene Farell, Nida Dar, Shabnim Ismail and Hannah Darlington all have 8 wickets so far.

Although the venue has tended to be a high-scoring one in the last few years, there is enough help for both seamers and spinners to make their presence felt. Overall, the Drummoyne Oval is a ground that produces sporting tracks on most occasions. Further, match-day should witness some beautiful weather for cricket as there is zero chance for rain.
The Drummoyne Oval is one of the many multi-sport grounds in the beautiful city of Sydney. The ground is usually used for cricket and Australian football with the Sydney Sixers women's team using the venue as their home ground since 2016. With light towers being installed in 2013 as part of a massive development process, the Drummoyne Oval is a beautiful venue for any sporting action.
Be it women's cricket or men’s cricket, chasing teams win most of the matches at this venue. Ellyse Perry and Rachel Haynes should have the same choice in the mind too when the Sixers take on Thunder on Friday.
As long as it is not Beth Mooney and co, Sydney Sixers look like an outfit that would be too good for most teams in the WBBL.
The same should be the case for the Sydney Thunder too with a superstar like Ellyse Perry in prime form. To have any chance for an upset, the Thunder bowlers have to dismiss Perry early on as the Sixers' star all-rounder has proved to be very stable in the middle this season.
