MS-W vs SS-W Dream11 prediction

Both teams have had contrasting starts to this year’s Women’s Big Bash League. Melbourne Stars have lost both their opening games and are languishing at the bottom of the points table. On the other hand, Sydney Sixers have won both their matches and are comfortably placed at the top of the standings. Both Sydney Sixers’ batting and bowling is working in unison and they will fancy their chances of another win against a struggling Melbourne Stars outfit.  

MS-W vs SS-W Dream11 team tips for Women’s Big Bash 2021

Top tip: Best batter

Shafali Verma of SS-W is a top pick for this clash. The Indian international has a T20I strike-rate of 142 and is known for scoring runs at a brisk rate at the top of the order. The 17-year-old has already scored a fifty in the competition and is amongst the leading run-getters in Women’s Big Bash League 2021. Available for 9 credits, Shafali Verma is a must-have pick for this game. 

Top tip: Best bowler

Annabel Sutherland of MS-W is the best option amongst the bowlers. The right-arm medium pacer is currently the leading wicket-taker for her side with three scalps in two outings. Sutherland opens the batting for her team and is likely to provide points with willow in hand as well.

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Ellyse Perry of SS-W is a worthy all-round option for this encounter. The 30-year-old had a good outing in her last match against Hobart, scoring a measured 27 while also picking up two wickets. The right-hander has the ability to change the course of a match single-handedly and will be the player to watch out for in this game. 

Amongst the wicket-keepers, picking Alyssa Healy of SS-W is a no-brainer. The Australian scored a quick 57 (27) in the reverse fixture between the two teams and will look to carry on from where she left on Wednesday.
