HB-W vs BH-W Dream11 team tips for Women’s Big Bash 2021
Top tip: Best batter
Mignon du Preez of HB-W is a top pick for this clash. The South African international scored a measured 39 in the last game against Adelaide Strikes before rain played spoilsport. Although du Preez has been far from her best this season, she is expected to get amongst the runs given her invaluable experience in T20 cricket. Selected by 91 percent of fantasy users, Mignon du Preez is a valuable choice for 9 credits.
Top tip: Best bowler
Molly Strano of HB-W is the best option amongst the bowlers. The right-arm off-spinner is currently the leading wicket-taker for her side with five scalps in three innings at an economy of 5.50. The 29-year-old has been providing crucial breakthroughs for her team in crunch situations and has been the go-to bowler for her skipper. Selected by 94 percent of fantasy users, Molly is a steal for 9 credits.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Jess Jonassen of BH-W is a worthy all-round option for this encounter. The 28-year-old is amongst the leading wicket-takers in the tournament with six scalps at an economy of 5.22. The southpaw is also a good striker with the willow in the lower order and played a 6-ball 19 not out against Perth Scorchers earlier in the tournament. An all-round package for the T20 format, Jess Jonassen cannot be ignored despite her high price of 10 credits.
