AS-W vs HB-W Dream11 prediction
Adelaide Strikers hold a superior head-to-head record against Hobart Hurricanes in Women’s Big Bash League, winning nine of the 11 matches that they have played so far. Furthermore, the Strikers have won their last five matches against the Hurricanes and will start as clear favourites in the upcoming contest on Saturday.
AS-W vs HB-W Dream11 team tips for Women’s Big Bash League 2021
Top tip: Best batter
Adelaide Strikers women middle-order batter Laura Wolvaardt will be one of the players to watch out for in the AS-W vs HB-W encounter. While Wolvaardt is yet to fire in WBBL 2021, the 22-year-old has scored 588 runs in 33 T20Is for South Africa and will play an important role for the Strikers against Hurricanes.
Top tip: Best bowler
On the other hand, Sarah Coyte is currently the leading wicket-taker in the ongoing edition of Women’s Big League. The Australia right-arm fast bowler has picked five wickets in just two matches at an impressive economy of 5.18. Coyte is likely to add more scalps to her wicket tally against Hurricanes on Saturday.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, picking Adelaide Strikers skipper Tahlia McGrath in your fantasy cricket team is a no-brainer. The 25-year-old all-rounder has scored 92 runs and also bagged three wickets in two matches so far.
For the wicket-keeper spot, one must pick Hobart captain Rachel Priest over Tegan McPharlin. Priest smashed an unbeaten 68-ball 107 against the Stars on Tuesday and will look to continue her great batting form while fulfilling wicket-keeping responsibilities.
AS-W vs HB-W probable playing XI
AS-W playing XI (probable): Dane van Niekerk, Katie Mack, Laura Wolvaardt, Tahlia McGrath (captain), Bridget Patterson, Madeline Penna, Amanda-Jade Wellington, Tegan McPharlin (wicket-keeper), Sarah Coyte, Jemma Barsby, Darcie Brown
HB-W playing XI (probable): Rachel Priest (captain and wicket-keeper), Ruth Johnston, Mignon du Preez, Richa Ghosh, Nicola Carey, Naomi Stalenberg, Sasha Moloney, Molly Strano, Belinda Vakarewa, Tayla Vlaeminck, Amy Smith
