Match 49 of Women’s Big Bash League 2021 will see Hobart Hurricanes (HB-W) taking on Melbourne Renegades (MR-W) at Harrup Park in Queensland on Friday, November 19.
HB-W vs MR-W Dream11 prediction
Melbourne Renegades women are in fantastic form this season. They have won eight of their 12 matches so far and sit at the top of the standings with 18 points. Hobart Hurricanes Women, on the other hand, haven’t been at their best and find themselves at the bottom of the standings after a mere three wins from 12 games.
The two teams have already crossed paths once this season in what was a rather one-sided affair. After batting first, HB-W were bowled out for 121 and MR-W reached the target with four balls and six wickets to spare. A similar dominant display is expected from the Renegades on Friday.
HB-W vs MR-W Dream11 team tips for Women’s Big Bash League 2021
Top tip: Best batter
Jemimah Rodrigues’ form may have dwindled in the last few matches, but Friday’s match gives the MR-W opener a perfect opportunity of getting back on track. The right-handed batter top-scored with an impressive 33 runs against HB-W women last time out and Jemimah will be eager for a similar display as she targets regaining her batting touch.
Top tip: Best bowler
Despite HB-W’s struggle, spinner Molly Strano has managed to flourish big time. The 29-year-old off-break bowler has made it to the Dream Team in all of her last four matches while accumulating an impressive 256 fantasy points. She is a must-have player for this match.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Harmanpreet Kaur of MR-W is an outright pick for the all-rounder spot. The 32-year-old has been in scintillating form this season and has breached the 100-fantasy point mark in each of her last three matches, taking her tally to 395 points from those games. She also remains a good choice for captaincy.
For the wicket-keeper position, HB-W’s Rachel Priest, who has a century and fifty under her belt in the ongoing season, is the safest option to go with. Priest has been better than her counterpart Josephine Dooley with bat as well as behind the stumps, making her the obvious fantasy pick in this position for this contest.
HB-W vs MR-W probable playing XI
HB-W playing XI (probable): Naomi Stalenberg, Rachel Priest (captain and wicket-keeper), Mignon du Preez, Nicola Carey, Richa Ghosh, Molly Strano, Sasha Moloney, Tayla Vlaeminck, Angelina Genford, Belinda Vakarewa, Amy Smith
MR-W playing XI (probable): Jemimah Rodrigues, Evelyn Jones, Carly Leeson, Harmanpreet Kaur, Jess Duffin, Sophie Molineux (captain), Josephine Dooley (wicket-keeper), Ellen Falconer, Rhiann O’Donnell, Ella Hayward, Holly Ferling
