Individual brilliance gives Adelaide Strikers an edge over Perth Scorchers - get fantasy tips and predictions
The Women’s Big Bash League 2021 has come down to the final two teams as Perth Scorchers (PS-W) lock horns with Adelaide Strikers (AS-W) for the ultimate prize at the Perth Stadium on Saturday.
PS-W vs AS-W Dream11 prediction
Perth Scorchers Women, who will be playing in their third WBBL final, have been brilliant this season, having won nine of their 14 matches. Adelaide Strikers Women, on the other hand, won seven of their 14 league stage games as they finished fourth in the points table.
Unlike PS-W, AS-W had to play in the eliminator and the challenger rounds to get a place in the final. They were simply unplayable in both those rounds and PS-W are up for quite a task on Saturday. Considering the form AS-W are in and the momentum that the team has, we expect them to lift the title even though they came up short against the Scorchers in both their earlier games this season.
PS-W vs AS-W Dream11 team tips for Women’s Big Bash League 2021
Top tip: Best batter
AS-W’s Katie Mack has been a true sensation this season. Only behind Beth Mooney in terms of most runs scored (507), the 28-year-old opener has been one of the top performers for the fantasy players, having accrued 453 fantasy points from her last six games. Note that she has made it to the Dream Team on all six of those occasions.
Top tip: Best bowler
With 22 wickets in 16 innings, AS-W’s Amanda-Jade Wellington is currently the top wicket-taker of the tournament. The 24-year-old is the only bowler to have picked a five-wicket haul this season and like her teammate, Katie Mack, she has delivered consistent points.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
AS-W captain Tahlia McGrath is a player in form this season. The 26-year-old has picked 11 wickets and has complemented it with 302 runs at an average of 43.14. The fact that she has been named in the Dream Team in eight of her last nine outings makes her a must-have player for this contest.
For a wicket-keeper, our recommendation would be PS-W’s Beth Mooney. With 528 runs in 13 innings, Mooney is currently leading the run-scoring charts and has been an absolute delight for fantasy players. She is averaging a whopping 72.4 fantasy points per match from her last five games, having accrued a tally of 362 points.
PS-W vs AS-W probable playing XI
PS-W playing XI (probable): Beth Mooney (wicket-keeper), Sophie Devine (captain), Heather Graham, Chamari Atapattu, Mathilda Carmichael, Lisa Griffith, Marizanne Kapp, Alana King, Lilly Mills, Taneale Peschel, Chloe Piparo
AS-W playing XI (probable): Dane van Niekerk, Katie Mack, Laura Wolvaardt, Tahlia McGrath (captain), Bridget Patterson, Amanda-Jade Wellington, Tegan McPharlin (wicket-keeper), Sarah Coyte, Jemma Barsby, Megan Schutt, Darcie Brown
