Adelaide Strikers hold slight edge over Melbourne Renegades - get WBBL 2021 fantasy tips
Melbourne Renegades women (MR-W) take on Adelaide Strikers women (AS-W) in match 8 of Women’s Big Bash League 2021 at Blundstone Arena in Hobart on Wednesday, October 20.
MR-W vs AS-W Dream11 prediction
Both teams have made a winning start to their WBBL 2021 season with MR-W defeating Hobart Hurricanes women by six wickets while AS-W got the better of Sydney Thunder women by 30 runs. Interestingly, both teams managed to take 10 wickets in their respective match and hence, it might all come down to batting on Wednesday.
Now, MR-W does have quality top-order batters like Sophie Molineux and Jemimah Rodrigues, but AS-W’s bowling unit look pretty formidable, which is why one might consider Adelaide Strikers women to be slight favourites on Wednesday.
MR-W vs AS-W Dream11 team tips for Women’s Big Bash League 2021
Top tip: Best batter
MR-W’s Jemimah Rodrigues has to be the first choice batter for this match. The 21-year-old scored 33 runs in her previous outings and although it came at a lowly strike rate of 97.05, a return of 45 fantasy points from that match is the highest among any player.
Top tip: Best bowler
Georgia Wareham of MR-W was simply exceptional in her last match. The 22-year-old bowler picked three wickets while conceding just 13 runs in her four overs. Fantasy users benefited a lot from that performance as she accumulated 118 fantasy points from that match and can be expected to produce a similar performance on Wednesday.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
AS-W captain Tahlia McGrath is an outright choice for an all-rounder. The 25-year-old accumulated 147 fantasy points from her last match which came after she scored a 34-ball 42 with the bat besides a return of three wickets for 17 runs with the ball.
As for a wicket-keeper, AS-W’s Tegan McPharlin should be picked ahead of Josephine Dooley due to her better return with the bat.
MR-W vs AS-W probable playing XI
MR-W playing XI (probable): Jemimah Rodrigues, Sophie Molineux (captain), Courtney Webb, Harmanpreet Kaur, Evelyn Jones, Jess Duffin, Georgia Wareham, Josephine Dooley (wicket-keeper), Carly Leeson, Ellie Falconer, Holly Ferling
