Adelaide Strikers (AS-W) face Sydney Thunder (ST-W) in match 38 of Women’s Big Bash League 2021 at Karen Rolton Oval in Adelaide on Tuesday, November 9.
AS-W vs ST-W Dream11 prediction
It is a bottom-of-the-table clash as Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Thunder look to bounce back from their recent defeats in WBBL 2021.
The sides met earlier in match 3 of the competition, where an all-round show from Tahlia McGrath (42 runs off 34 balls and 3/17) propelled the AS-W to a 30-run victory.
As far as the head-to-head record is concerned, it is all fair and square with both teams winning six times in clashes against each other in the past. However, Adelaide Strikers haven’t managed a win in a while now and they will aim for a double over rock-bottom Sydney Thunder with the hope of ending their five-game winless streak in WBBL 2021.
AS-W vs ST-W Dream11 team tips for Women’s Big Bash League 2021
Top tip: Best batter
ST-W opener Smriti Mandhana has registered back-to-back 60-plus fantasy points for Dream Team owners, and thus stands out as a top pick for the batter role. The 25-year-old has hit 170 runs in the competition and will look to build on her tally of 276 fantasy points with a match-winning knock on Tuesday.
Top tip: Best bowler
Hannah Darlington has picked 10 wickets at an impressive economy of 6.00 this season. With 402 fantasy points already to her name, the 19-year-old ST-W pacer will fancy her chances of getting the better of the likes of AS-W skipper Tahlia McGrath and Co.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
All-rounder Deepti Sharma has flourished for Sydney Thunder this season, regardless of the side's below-par displays in WBBL 2021. Her 520 fantasy points include back-to-back hauls of 127 points following triple strikes against Hobart Hurricanes (3/13) and Melbourne Stars (3/25). With 10 wickets and 135 runs to her name, Deepti makes for a bold but logical choice for fantasy players to select ahead of Tahlia McGrath.
Meanwhile, AS-W’s Tegan McPharlin is the safest bet for a wicket-keeper as her tally of fantasy points (150) is higher than ST-W’s Tahlia Wilson (127). The former is second on the keeping chart for most dismissals (9) that includes six caught as well as three stumpings and the 33-year-old is expected to put on another reliable show on Tuesday.
AS-W vs ST-W probable playing XI
AS-W playing XI (probable): Dane van Niekerk, Katie Mack, Laura Wolvaardt, Tahlia McGrath (captain), Bridget Patterson, Madeline Penna, Amanda Wellington, Tegan McPharlin (wicket-keeper), Sarah Coyte, Jemma Barsby, Darcie Brown
