Melbourne Stars women (MS-W) will take on Hobart Hurricanes women (HB-W) in the sixth match of Women’s Big Bash League 2021 at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart on Tuesday, October 19.
Both Melbourne Stars women and Hobart Hurricanes women are yet to register a win in the ongoing T20 tournament. While Meg Lanning-led Stars lost to Sydney Sixers women by six wickets on the opening day of the Women’s Big Bash 2021, Rachel Priest’s Hurricanes have suffered consecutive defeats against Sixers and Melbourne Renegades women.
MS-W vs HB-W Dream11 prediction
Going by past meetings between the teams, Hobart Hurricanes women hold a slight advantage over Melbourne Stars women in the Women’s Big Bash League, having won seven of the 12 matches that they have played so far. On the other hand, the Stars have secured five victories. The head-to-head record will give HB-W an edge over MS-W on Tuesday.
MS-W vs HB-W Dream11 team tips for Women’s Big Bash League 2021
Top tip: Best batter
Melbourne Stars women opening batter Elyse Villani looked in fine form against the Sydney Sixers women as she scored an unbeaten 31-ball 54 to help her side post a fighting total on board. MS-W will hope Villani can continue her impressive form against the Hobart Hurricanes women at the Bellerive Oval.
Top tip: Best bowler
Molly Strano has been the standout bowler for Hobart Hurricanes women in the ongoing Women’s Big Bash. The 29-year-old spinner has already picked three wickets in two matches at an economy of 5.62. Strano is likely to add more wickets to her tally against the Stars on Tuesday.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, one must pick Annabel Sutherland of the Melbourne Stars women in your fantasy cricket team. Having scored 14 runs and bagged one wicket against the Sixers, Annabel Sutherland is expected to play an important role against the Hurricanes.
For the wicket-keeper spot, Hobart captain Rachel Priest will be the preferred choice over Nicole Faltum. Priest has scored more than 6,000 runs in T20 cricket and is a must-have in any fantasy team.
MS-W vs HB-W probable playing XI
MS-W playing XI (probable): Elyse Villani, Annabel Sutherland, Meg Lanning (captain), Maia Bouchier, Kim Garth, Nicole Faltum (wicket-keeper), Tess Flintoff, Anna Lanning, Maddy Darke, Sophie Day, Rhys McKenna
