The defending champions of the WBBL, Sydney Sixers started the 4th edition of the tournament with two wins in three matches. After going down in the first game against Melbourne Stars, the Sixers defeated Perth Scorchers and Sydney Thunder. Their skipper Ellyse Perry starred in all the three matches with scores of 58, 102* and 78* opening the innings and chipped in with three wickets thus far. The all-rounders in the Sixers squad have made the difference between them and others.

They will now take on Hobart Hurricanes who are coming off a huge 72-run win against Melbourne Stars after two defeats. However, they have lost services of Hayley Matthews for next one month who suffered a knee injury in the last match. Though the presence of in-form Smriti Mandhana and Heather Knight will surely boost the team’s confidence. The International stars scored a fifty each over the last weekend.

Pitch Condition/Report:

This game between Hurricanes and Sixers is the second game of the double-header at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart. Interestingly, the scores in the second match on a pitch in the previous game-days were higher than that of the first. The trend could continue in this game which will be played under lights.

Squads:

Hobart Hurricanes:

Sasha Moloney (C), Brooke Hepburn, Stefanie Daffara, Ashley Day, Erin Fazackerley, Katelyn Fryett, Corinne Hall, Alex Hartley, Mikayla Hinkley, Heather Knight, Smriti Mandhana, Meg Phillips, Veronica Pyke, Rhiann O’Donnell, Georgia Redmayne.

Sydney Sixers:

Ellyse Perry (C), Erin Burns, Lauren Cheatle, Ashleigh Gardner, Alyssa Healy, Marizanne Kapp, Carly Leeson, Sara McGlashan, Hayley Silver-Holmes, Lauren Smith, Dane Van Niekerk, Tahlia Wilson.

Probable XI:

Hobart Hurricanes:

Sasha Maloney (C), Smriti Mandhana, Erin Fazackerley, Katelyn Fryett, Heather Knight, Corinne Hall, Stefanie Daffara, Brooke Hepburn, Meg Phillips, Veronica Pyke, Georgia Redmayne.

Sydney Sixers:

Ellyse Perry (C), Erin Burns, Lauren Cheatle, Ashleigh Gardner, Alyssa Healy, Marizanne Kapp, Sara McGlashan, Hayley Silver-Holmes/Carly Leeson, Lauren Smith, Dane Van Niekerk, Tahlia Wilson.

Power Picks:

The experience of Erin Burns proved worthy in the previous game for the Sixers who yielded quick runs thanks to her blitz. Lauren Cheatle’s left-arm angle could trouble top batters. She deceived the Indian T20 skipper Harmanpreet at a crucial stage with a slower ball.

Best Playing XI:

Alyssa Healy, Erin Burns, Smriti Mandhana, Heather Knight, Stefanie Daffara, Meg Phillips, Ellyse Perry, Dane Van Niekerk, Brooke Hepburn, Lauren Cheatle, Lauren Smith.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Due to their ability to bowl a few overs, Heather Knight and Ellyse Perry will be ideal choices for multipliers. One of the two can be captain and the vice-captain can be saved for Alysa Healy and Smriti Mandhana who can make it bit with the bat.

Expert Advice:

In the all-rounders’ category, the choice needed to be made between Ashleigh Gardner and Dane van Niekerk. The Australian has been inconsistent with the bat ever since the WWT20 which is her strength. Niekerk, on the other hand, has regularly chipped in with wickets.

Probable Winners:

Sydney Sixers are expected to continue their winning spree with a win over the hosts Hobart Hurricanes.
