TAS-W vs AM-W Top Picks for Today’s Dream11 Match:

Carly Leeson delivered a man of the match performance in her previous game against Queensland, where she took 4 wickets and rattled the opposition completely. She would like to continue her performance in this fixture as well.

Katie Mack opened the innings in the previous game, with some fireworks at the very start of her knock. She made a quickfire 54 in just 51 deliveries. Expect her to return magical numbers in this game as well.

Erin Osborne not only took 2 wickets in the previous game, but she was also handy with the bat as she made 40 off just 31 balls. An all-rounder like her can give you bonus fantasy points in both departments, which makes her a must-have in your XI.

Heather Graham has picked 8 wickets in her last 5 games and had a decent season in the Women’s Big Bash as well. Expect her to dominate with the ball in this game for the Tasmanians.

Samantha Bates is a phenomenal spinner who can turn the game quite literally with her bowling. She was in good form in the Big Bash and has played for the opposition team ACT for nearly a decade. She is well aware of their tactics which might put the Tasmanians in the front seat for this game.
