Match 22 of Women’s Big Bash League 2021 will witness Sydney Thunder (ST-W) locking horns with Melbourne Stars (MS-W) at the Aurora Stadium in Launceston on Saturday, October 30.
ST-W vs MS-W Dream11 prediction
Both sides are placed in the bottom half of the table currently but it is Melbourne Stars women who are positioned better in terms of wins and run rate. While Melbourne Stars women have secured five points in six matches, Sydney Thunder women have failed to open their points tally having lost four of their first five matches, which is why MS-W are hot favourites to win Saturday’s clash.
ST-W vs MS-W Dream11 team tips for Women’s Big Bash League 2021
Top tip: Best batter
Elyse Villani is a top pick in the batting department for Melbourne Stars women. She is having a good run at the top of the order, having scored 35 and 52 in her last two matches. Villani’s ability to accumulate runs in the powerplay makes her a dangerous proposition to deal with.
Top tip: Best bowler
Hannah Darlington has been the epitome of consistency with the ball for Sydney Thunder women. In her last four matches, she has taken one wicket and has been involved in breaking important partnerships, which is why fantasy players would be smart to add her to their team.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Kim Garth is the best all-rounder option in this match. Representing Melbourne Stars women, she scored a fluent 29-ball 44 not out against Hobart Hurricanes women and backed it up with a fine spell of 1/25. Furthermore, she has garnered two three-wicket hauls in her last three matches.
Tahlia Wilson can prove to be a smart choice as a wicket-keeper for this contest. While keeping wickets for Sydney Thunder women, she has been convincing in her role and also makes for a handy batter in the middle-order. Available at 8 credits, she is a steal.
ST-W vs MS-W probable playing XI
ST playing XI (probable): Smriti Mandhana, Phoebe Litchfield, Corinne Hall, Ankia Learoyd, Deepti Sharma, Hannah Darlington (captain), Lauren Smith, Issy Wong, Tahlia Wilson (wicket-keeper), Kate Peterson, Samantha Bates
