The Women’s Big Bash League 2021 is entering its most crucial phase and in a very important game Sydney Thunder Women would take on Brisbane Heat Women. Sydney Thunder come here with a win against Hobart Hurricanes Women while the Brisbane Heat went down against Melbourne Renegades Women in the last game, their second consecutive defeat.
Brisbane Heat Women have lost the last two games and dropped to the third spot on the points table. They would look forward to a good show here to get their campaign back on track. Sydney Thunder Women have won the last two games but have had a poor tournament and must win this one to move up on the points table. Given the context, we expect to see a tight contest here.
Hannah Darlington’s side has ignited its hopes in the tournament with back-to-back wins. After failing to win any of their first five games the side has made a strong comeback. It was a good show by the side in their last game against the Hobart Hurricanes Women where they won by 37 runs. Darlington would aim for the third straight win here which will keep them in the hunt for a place in the playoffs.
Smriti Mandhana played well in the last game, and she would aim at a good opening stand with Tahlia Wilson. In the middle order Phoebe Litchfield, Corinne Hall, and Deepti Sharma have got runs in the last two games and the side would like another strong show from them. Sammy-Jo Johnson, Anika Learoyd, and Darlington would be tasked with doing the big-hitting down the order.
Their bowlers have struck form, and this is good news for the side. The new ball pair of Samantha Bates and Isabelle Wong would aim at striking early in this game. Sharma and Darlington also bowled tight spells in the last game, and they would have to play an important part in this game. Lauren Smith and Johnson shall need to play the supporting act well for the side to challenge Heat’s strong batting line-up.

Jess Jonassen’s side has lost the last two games and the skipper would be upset with the show from her bowlers in the last game against Melbourne Renegades Women as they allowed their opponents to put up a huge score on the board. It was a brave chase from the side but they lost by 15 runs. Jonassen would like her side to regain form in this game and do well here.
Georgia Redmayne and Grace Harris must provide the side with a good start for them to win this game as Thunder Women have looked good with the ball. In the middle order Georgia Voll, Mikayla Hinkley, and Anne Bosch will aim at playing well in this important game. In Laura Kimmince and Jonassen, they have powerful strikers of the ball and quick runs would be needed from them.
It was a poor show by their bowlers in the last game and the side would like to see tighter spells with the new ball from Nadine de Klerk and Courtney Grace Sippel. Nicola Hancock and Jonassen would have to keep the scoring rate under check in the middle overs and the likes of Charli Knott, Bosch and Harris also must play important roles.

The skies over Adelaide would be partly cloudy on November 07 and we expect to see bowlers enjoy these conditions. Batters would have to be watchful here and play to the merit of the ball. The side batting first in this game would need 160 runs on the board to feel confident.
Adelaide Oval has short square boundaries, and this offers plenty of scoring opportunities to the batters. The wicket is known for assisting the fast bowlers with good pace and bounce and they have done well in the past. Spinners generally find this venue challenging with little assistance for them from the surface and short boundaries around the square.
This will be the first game of the tournament at the Adelaide Oval, and we expect to see some assistance for the bowlers early on. Most teams here in the past have preferred to bowl upon winning the toss and we expect to see the team winning the toss follow this convention and opt to bowl first.
It will be a very interesting game with the kind of performances we have seen from the sides in the last few games. Sydney Thunder Women have momentum on their side having won the two previous games. They would have to show consistency to win here which they have lacked so far. Brisbane Heat Women have lost the last two games, but they have more firepower with the bat and this would put them nose ahead of Sydney Thunder Women to win this game.
