Melbourne Renegades women (MR-W) play host to Hobart Hurricanes women (HB-W) in match 2 of Women's Big Bash League 2021 at Blundstone Arena on Saturday, October 16.
MR-W vs HB-W Dream11 prediction
Both teams have made several changes to their squad for the new season and it is quite difficult to predict a winner right away. However, if history is anything to go by, HB-W will have an edge given that they have won seven of their 12 meetings against MR-W.
Three of MR-W’s five wins over HB-W, however, have come in the last five matches and given the firepower they have added in Harmanpreet Kaur and Jemimah Rodrigues, they might seal a victory on Saturday.
MR-W vs HB-W Dream11 team tips for Women’s Big Bash 2021
Top tip: Best batter
MR-W’s top-order batter Jemimah Rodrigues has been selected by a whopping 93.6% of fantasy users. The 21-year-old recently finished the 100-ball league as the second-highest scorer (249) and is expected to make an impact in Australia as well.
Top tip: Best bowler
MR-W leggie Georgia Wareham has enjoyed a fine run of form of late. The 22-year-old was among the wickets during India women’s tour of Australia and will be under the spotlight since she conceded just 32 runs across three matches against the Indian eves.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
It’s a tight call between MR-W’s Evelyn Jones and Harmanpreet Kaur, but we would recommend going with the former. The 29-year-old England all-rounder was fantastic during the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy and will look to carry her form to Australia as well.
As for a wicket-keeper, HB-W’s Richa Ghosh should be the ideal pick. The 18-year-old keeper has averaged 34 fantasy points per game in her recent outings and will be a steal at just 8.5 credits.
MR-W vs HB-W squads
MR-W squad: Sophie Molineux (captain), Makinley Blows, Josie Dooley (wicket-keeper), Jess Duffin, Ellen Falconer, Holly Ferling, Poppy Gardner, Ella Hayward, Eve Jones, Harmanpreet Kaur, Carly Leeson, Rhiann O’Donnell, Jemimah Rodrigues, Georgia Wareham, Courtney Webb
HB-W squad: Rachel Priest(captain), Nicola Carey, Tayla Vlaeminck, Mignon du Preez, Richa Ghosh (wicket-keeper), Angelina Genford, Maisy Gibson, Ruth Johnston, Sasha Moloney, Chloe Rafferty, Amy Smith, Molly Strano, Naomi Stalenberg, Belinda Vakarewa, Rachel Trenaman
