Teams Preview

Sydney Thunder Women Preview

It was a poor show with the bat from Rachael Haynes’ side in the last game against Brisbane Heat Women which they lost by 8 wickets. This loss has pushed them down to No. 2 spot on the points table. Haynes would be looking for a strong comeback here and like her players to take inspiration from the side’s impressive record against the Melbourne Stars. 

Openers Sammy-Jo Johnson and Tammy Beaumont missed out in the last game and they will need to provide a positive start against the strong bowling attack that Stars have. Heather Knight is doing well and shall look for good support in the middle from Haynes and Phoebe Litchfield. Rachel Trenaman, Tahlia Wilson and Hannah Darlington bring in good hitting abilities down the order. 

Shabnim Ismail has gained form and this is great news for the side. She will look to strike early in company of Samantha Bates who has done well earlier.  Sammy-Jo Johnson, Lauren Smith and Knight would have to check their line as they have gone for runs in the last few games. Hannah Darlington bowled well in the last game and completes a strong bowling attack for the side. 

Sydney Thunder Women Predicted Playing XI:

Rachael Haynes (c), Tammy Beaumont, Rachel Trenaman, Sammy-Jo Johnson, Heather Knight, Phoebe Litchfield, Lauren Smith, Tahlia Wilson (wk), Hannah Darlington, Shabnim Ismail, Samantha Bates

Melbourne Stars Women Preview

From being bottom hunters of this tournament in the past, Meg Lanning’s side has taken pole position this year and sit at the top of the points table. They won comfortably in the last game against Adelaide Strikers Women by 5 wickets, their fifth win in a row. Lanning would now be hoping to improve the poor record they have against Sydney Thunder over the years. 

Openers Lanning and Elyse Villani have been in great form and they would be looking to provide a positive start to the side. Mignon du Preez played a match winning knock in the last game and shall look to repeat that magic along with Natalie Sciver and Annabel Sutherland in the middle order. Anna Lanning and Katherine Brunt’s batting skills would come handy for the side. 

Natalie Sciver has been magnificent with the ball and he will look to strike early along with Brunt. Sophie Day and Alana King have also done well with the ball in the last few games bowling tight spells. The side would look for good show from Tess Flintoff and Annabel Sutherland in this game.

Weather Conditions

It will be clear skies over Sydney on November 14 and the wicket is expected to have juice due to the spell of rains we have seen. Batters will have to be patient as this wicket can throw in surprise at any moment. The side batting first here would be happy to put up a score in excess of 140 runs.

Venue Details

Sydney Showground Stadium has been a good hunting ground for the batters but this season the weather has aided the fast bowlers as they are able to extract lot of seam and swing from the surface and creating doubts in the minds of the batters. Spinners have enjoyed good record here as the ball takes sharp turn occasionally.

Toss: To Bowl

Win the toss and bowl first seems to have been the winning mantra this season as the pitches haven’t been the best for batting. With weather conditions favoring the bowlers we haven’t seen big scores yet. Hence the skipper winning the toss should have no hesitation in bowling first here. 

SYTW vs MLSW Winning Prediction

Sydney Thunder Women had started the tournament with a bang and had looked the most dominant team. But the side has lost form in the last two games and seems to be showing some signs of struggle. Melbourne Stars on the other hand have been enjoying a dream run with five consecutive wins. Their batters and bowlers are playing complementary roles here. It is expected to be a tough contest but the Stars would start nose ahead in this game.
