Sydney Sixers Women need to get their act right as they take on the Sydney Thunder Women in the 46th game of the Women’s Big Bash League 2021. The Sydney Sixers Women come into this game after a narrow loss against the Brisbane Heat Women while the Thunder witnessed its last game against the Perth Scorchers Women being washed away due to rains. 

The Sydney Thunder Women have been in poor form right through the season and the side has managed only two wins so far. They are already out of contention for a place in the playoffs and have to play for their pride here. The Sixers need to win this game to move up on the points table and it would be interesting to see which of the sides emerged winners here.

Sydney Sixers Women Preview

Three consecutive losses have hurt the campaign for Ellyse Perry’s side. The Sixers’ skipper would be extremely upset with the efforts of her batters in the last game against Brisbane Heat Women where they managed only 91 runs. They have to win this game by a big margin to stay in the hunt for a place in the playoffs and Perry would like to exploit Thunder’s lack of form. 

Alyssa Healy and Perry haven’t done well opening the batting in the last few games and they have to deliver the goods here. The middle-order has also shown signs of struggle and runs would be expected from Ashleigh Gardner, Shafali Verma, and Nicole Bolton. In Maitlan Brown, Angela Reakes, and Radha Yadav the side has good strength lower down the order. 

The bowling attack nearly did the impossible and defended the low total and the side would be confident with the form of its new ball pair of Lauren Cheatle and Maitlan Brown. Perry and Stella Campbell were expensive, and they have to deliver tight spells in the game. The side would rely on Gardner and Yadav to use the conditions to their advantage.

Sydney Sixers Women Predicted Playing XI:

Ellyse Perry (c), Alyssa Healy (wk), Ashleigh Gardner, Nicole Bolton, Shafali Verma, Angela Reakes, Maitlan Brown, Radha Yadav, Lauren Cheatle, Stella Campbell, Emma Hughes

Sydney Sixers Women Actual Playing XI:

Smriti Mandhana, Lauren Smith, Phoebe Litchfield, Deepti Sharma, Corinne Hall, Hannah Darlington, Sammy Jo Johnson, Anika Learoyd, Tahlia Wilson, Issy Wong, Samantha Bates

Sydney Thunder Women Preview

The results haven’t been to the like of Hannah Darlington’s side in this tournament. They have failed to deliver in crunch situations and have won only two out of their ten games. They saw their last game against Perth Scorchers Women being abandoned by rain. However, they were in a poor position when rain halted the game. They don’t enjoy the best record against the Sixers and have to come up with a good show here. 

The new opening pair of Darlington and Mandhana have to provide the side with a good start in this game. In the middle order, they would need runs from the bat of Tahlia Wilson, Phoebe Litchfield, and Sammy-Jo Johnson as the side has been plagued by inconsistency in the middle order. They would also expect runs from the likes of Deepti Sharma and Isabelle Wong in the lower middle order. 

Their bowling attack has been expensive right through the season and in most games, the side has conceded lots of runs. They would need tight spells from Isabelle Wong and Samantha Bates with the new ball. Sharma hasn’t lived up to her reputation and she would need to keep the scoring under check in the middle overs with Darlington, Johnson, and Lauren Smith. 

Sydney Thunder Women Predicted Playing XI:

Hannah Darlington (c), Smriti Mandhana, Tahlia Wilson (wk), Phoebe Litchfield, Sammy-Jo Johnson, Isabelle Wong, Deepti Sharma, Lauren Smith, Anika Learoyd, Samantha Bates, Kate Peterson

Weather Conditions

The skies over Mackay would be clear on November 14. The wicket has been slow and dual-paced as we had seen in the last game, and we expect to see a similar surface here. Batters would have to play to the merit of the ball in this game. The side batting first in the game shall aim to put 160 runs or more on the board.

Venue Details

Harrup Park, Mackay is a small-sized venue in comparison to most other grounds in the country. The wicket is tricky here and hence batters who rotate the strike have done well at this venue in the past. Fast bowlers do get early assistance from the wicket here, but it is the spinners who enjoy bowling here as the ball turns and stops on the batters.

Toss: To Bowl

In the last game played here, we saw a slow surface where batters struggled to time the ball. In the past, more teams have won chasing the score than they have while batting first. Both the captains would have this in their minds at the toss and the side winning it is likely to opt for bowling first.

Sydney Thunder Women haven’t got their act right so far in the tournament. Their key players have been inconsistent, and this has hurt the strength of the side. The side would have to play out of its skins to do well and win this game. Sydney Sixers Women too come here with a loss, but they have better balance in the squad and shall start nose ahead in this game.
