Sydney Thunder Women have lost 6 matches since their first and only win of the season so far. The batting has been a big issue for Thunder with almost no batter scoring consistently.

Though they ended up losing the last game, it was one of the best batting performances from Sydney Thunder in recent games. If Brisbane Heat wins their last game of the season, they would finish at number 2 in the points table and advance to the Challenger round of playoffs.

And if Perth manage to win both of their last two games along with Hobart and Adelaide Strikers managing a win each in their last game, there would be 3 teams tied with the same number of points.

And it will all come down to Net Run Rate. As such, not only do the Strikers need to win this match but also ensure they win it by a good margin. Both Hobart and Perth have a better NRR than Strikers and that is not good news for ADSW.

Sydney Thunder Women Preview

Sydney Thunder can play spoilsport and knock the Strikers out if they manage a win here. It seems highly unlikely as SYT have no reliable match-winning players in any of the departments.

Following the 125-6 and 95-10 scores, the batting effort in their recent match while chasing a 179 runs target can be considered some improvement.

It is clear that Sydney Thunder’s strength lies in the top order. Other than the top 4 batters, there isn’t anyone who can be relied on to build the innings or to deliver a big finish for the team.

Other than Beaumont and Litchfield, the only hopeful batters in this lineup are Amy Jones and skipper Rachel Haynes. There is no doubt that the batting order looks deep with many options lower down the order.

But it is rare that one of the lower-order batters has stepped up and delivered a significant knock in the death overs. Chloe Tryon and Sammy Jo-Johnson can chip in with crucial runs in a close encounter. 

Vakarewa, who had been the most economical bowler in this squad was expensive in the last game. Nevertheless, she will continue to be the one to watch out for in the SYTW bowling attack. Samuel Bates and Lauren Smith are other key bowlers who can provide breakthroughs for Sydney Thunder.

Sydney Thunder Women Predicted Playing XI:

Tammy Beaumont, Phoebe Litchfield, Amy Jones (wk), Rachael Haynes (c), Chloe Tryon, Sammy-Jo Johnson, Olivia Porter, Hannah Darlington, Lauren Smith, Belinda Vakarewa, Samuel Bates

Adelaide Strikers Women Preview

A win over Hobart Hurricanes has kept Adelaide Strikers afloat in the WBBL 2022. They are hanging by a thread here. A loss in this game could mean the end of the road for the Strikers.

The recent win over Hurricanes by 8 wickets with 31 balls remaining was a massive one. Courtesy of a brilliant knock from the captain, Adelaide Strikers chased down 155 runs in under 15 Overs.

Openers Katie Mack and Laura Wolvaardt haven’t been in their best form lately. Their strike rates aren’t that great and that is exactly what the Strikers need in this match. A strong start in the powerplay. 

While Talia McGrath will come in at number 3 and lead the innings, other key batters in the middle order include Deandra Dottin and Bridget Patterson. 

Like the opposition, Strikers too, are dependent on the top 4 batters and have no reliable players in the lower order. Even in their win against Perth Scorchers, it was Deandra Dottin’s 68-run knock as the opening batter that led ADSW to an 8-wicket win chasing a 120 runs target.

Jemma Barsby, Amanda Wellington, and Schutt will be the key bowlers to watch out for in this lineup.

Adelaide Strikers Women Predicted Playing XI:

Katie Mack, Laura Wolvaardt, Tahlia McGrath (c), Deandra Dottin, Bridget Patterson, Madeline Penna, Tegan McPharlin (wk), Amanda Wellington, Jemma Barsby, Darcie Brown, Megan Schutt

Weather Conditions

It is a well-balanced pitch at the North Sydney Oval with both batters and bowlers getting help from the surface. The weather is expected to be cloudy with a high of 27 degrees Celsius.

Venue Details

The average 1st innings score at this venue in Women’s domestic T20s is 151 runs. However, looking at the recent matches at this ground, 170+ would be a match-winning total for the team batting first.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first won 21 of the 39 Women’s domestic T20s played at the North Sydney Oval. It is a crucial match for Strikers where they need to improve their NRR and batting first would be the right choice for doing so.

Both teams have similar issues in their batting departments. However, the Strikers seem to have a better bowling attack. They will be carrying the winning momentum from their last match and their top-order can be expected to come out all guns blazing in this all-important game. Adelaide Strikers Women will start as favourites in our match prediction.

Our prediction is for Adelaide Strikers to win the match
