Women`s cricket is having a great success in the recent 2 years and the Hundred a new format of game recently launched brought in a huge number of viewers for women`s cricket. Women`s Big Bash has been a massive success and we expect it raise to a great levels in this season. Melbourne qualified for the knockouts for the first time last season but ended up as runners-up losing in the finals.

Both teams will look to start a fresh season with a victory which will give them a big boost going ahead.

Teams Preview

Sydney Sixers Women Preview

Sydney Sixers have an explosive batting duo of Shefali Verma and Alyssa Healy at the top. Skipper Ellyse Perry will move into the middle order with the likes of Ashleigh Gardener, Matilda Lugg, and Nicole Brown for company. They lack depth in the batting line-up owing to the absence of quality all-rounder barring Perry in the top-6.  

They have a very strong bowling attack with the likes of Ellyse Perry, Maitlan Brown, Stella Campbell, Radha Yadav, and Nicole Bolton expected to slot in as their five main bowlers in the starting XI. Angela Reakes or Jade Allen might be used as a wicket-taking option alongside Ashleigh Gardner in the spin department.

Top players to bet on:

Shefali Verma – Shefali verma has been very impressive in her short international career so far and her ability to hit sixes stand out from the rest of the players. We expect her to make a big mark in her debut WBBL season this year.

Stella Campbell – Campbell will have a huge responsibility of taking the new ball in this season. She took 10 wickets at an economy rate of 8 RPO in the last season and we expect her to have better returns in this season.

Sydney Sixers Women Predicted Playing XI:

Shefali Verma, Alyssa Healy (wk), Ellyse Perry (c), Ashleigh Gardener, Matilda Lugg, Nicole Brown, Maitlan Brown, Stella Campbell, Radha Yadav, Angela Reakes, Jade Allen

Sydney Sixers Women Actual Playing XI:

Angela Reakes, Stella Campbell, Claire Moore, Maitlan Brown, Nicole Bolton, Ellyse Perry, Radha Yadav, Emma Hughes, Ashleigh Gardner, Shafali Verma, Alyssa Healy

Melbourne Stars Women Preview

Melbourne Stars will rely on their experienced duo of Skipper Meg Lanning and Elyse Villani in the batting department with Anna Lanning, Nicole Faltum, Maia Boucher, and Kim Garth expected play crucial roles with the bat. All-rounders Annabel Sutherland and Erin Osbourne might some depth and balance to their batting line-up.

Annabel Sutherland and Tess Flintoff will take over the pace bowling department with teenager Georgia Gall expected to join them to add left-arm variety. Linsey Smith, Erin Osbourne, and Maddy Drake are spin bowlers expected to play in the starting XI in this match.

Top players to bet on:

Annabel Sutherland – Sutherland is one of the most improved players in the Australian circuit over the last year in the bowling department especially. We expect her to make a big mark with the bat and ball in this season.

Meg Lanning – Lanning did not have a good series with the bat against India recently and she failed to make a big score in any format. She is a class player and we expect her to make a comeback in this WBBL with big runs at the middle order.

Melbourne Stars Women Predicted Playing XI:

Elyse Villani, Anna Lanning, Nicole Faltum, Maia Boucher, Kim Garth, Meg Lanning (c), Annabel Sutherland, Georgia Gall, Tess Flintoff, Erin Osbourne, Linsey Smith

Melbourne Stars Women Actual Playing XI:

Anna Lanning, Meg Lanning, Tess Flintoff, Rhys McKenna, Nicole Faltum, Maddy Darke, Sophie Day, Maia Bouchier, Elyse Villani, Kim Garth, Annabel Sutherland

Weather Conditions

Hobart is predicted to have dark, cloudy and rainy weather on the match day with 90% chances of precipitation as per the weather forecasters. We expect rain to play a cameo performance in this match.

Venue Details

Hobart pitch usually tends to start slow and flatten out as the match progresses too give batters better conditions in the second innings especially. Bowlers will have some purchase form the track and they will look to trouble the batters with the new ball especially. We expect the average scores to be around 140-150 runs.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing has been the best preferred option at this venue and early moisture in the pitch will the aid the bowlers. We expect both captains to bowl first with the rain breaks and DLS equation coming into picture.

SYSW vs MLSW Winning Prediction

Both teams have a lot of changes in their squad from the last season missing a lot of quality and experienced players. Sydney Sixers have picked up some impact players as replacements in the batting department but lacks depth while they have a variety of bowling options to pick from. Melbourne Stars lack experience in the batting department barring Lanning and Villani but possess a long batting line-up with all-rounders. We expect Melbourne Stars to win this match owing to their depth and balance of the playing XI.

MELBOURNE STARS WILL WIN THE MATCH
