Melbourne Renegades eye WBBL 2021-22 top spot with win over Sydney Sixers - get fantasy predictions
Melbourne Renegades women (MR-W) will lock horns with Sydney Sixers women (MS-W) in match 21 of Women’s Big Bash League 2021 at the Lilac Hill Park in Perth on Saturday, October 30.
MR-W vs SS-W Dream11 prediction
Melbourne’s nine-run win against Sydney Thunder saw them go level with leaders Brisbane Heat women (seven points from five games). This gives the Sophie Molineux-led Melbourne team a psychological advantage in the MR-W vs SS-W contest.
The Renegades registered a landslide win of seven wickets when they played Sixers in match 15 and will start as favourites to win Saturday’s fixture. SS-W, second from bottom on the points table, have a record of two wins, two losses and one no result from five games this season.
As far as the head-to-head record is concerned, Sydney Sixers have returned with nine wins as opposed to Melbourne Renegades’ five.
MR-W vs SS-W Dream11 team tips for Women’s Big Bash League 2021
Top tip: Best batter
Courtney Webb is yet to explode in the ongoing edition of the Women’s Big Bash League, but she’s a batter to watch out. The Melbourne Stars star has scored 617 runs in her WBBL career and will be hoping to add to the 61 runs she’s scored so far this season.
Top tip: Best bowler
Indian spinner Radha Yadav has scalped three wickets in WBBL 2021, and can be backed as the top bowler in fantasy cricket for this match after her performances against Hobart Hurricanes (2/31) and Melbourne Renegades (1/12). The 21-year-old conceded almost seven runs per over in the tournament and will need to bowl a match-winning spell to propel Sixers out of the bottom two.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Harmanpreet Kaur is the top-rated fantasy cricket player for MR-W vs SS-W, with a whopping 310 points to her name. The Indian women’s cricket team skipper has registered 103 runs and has five wickets for Melbourne Renegades in WBBL 2021.
Meanwhile, Josephine Dooley is pegged to excel in the wicket-keeper slot, ahead of fantasy favourite Alyssa Healy. The Renegades keeper has registered four dismissals in four games (three caught, one stumping) while her counterpart Healy has managed just one dismissal (one caught). Dooley will also be hoping to get some runs under her belt.
MR-W vs SS-W probable playing XI
MR-W playing XI (probable): Evelyn Jones, Jemimah Rodrigues, Courtney Webb, Harmanpreet Kaur, Jess Duffin, Sophie Molineux (captain), Josephine Dooley (wicket-keeper), Carly Leeson, Ella Hayward, Ellie Falconer, Holly Ferling
