After a huge 66-run defeat against Brisbane Heat, the defending champions Sydney Sixers bounced back with a seven-wicket win against the Melbourne Renegades. The Sixers would be delighted to see Alysa Healy amongst runs as she struck an unbeaten 42-ball 70 to guide her side an easy win during the 111-run chase. This win narrowed the gap between them and the current table-toppers who are separated by NRR. Both the teams have won one but the Sixers have played one game more than Thunder.

They will be now up against the Adelaide Strikers who are settling after fitness scares to their key players Suzie Bates and Sophie Devine. The Strikers have won only two of their seven matches thus far and would be eager in make most in the second half of the tournament.

They are coming here on the back of a win against the Melbourne Stars where Devine scored 95 runs and claimed 5 wickets. Five more runs with the bat could have made Devine the first player in Twenty20 history with a century and a five-wicket haul in the same match.

Match Details:

The 32nd match of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) will be played between Sydney Sixers and Adelaide Strikers at the Hurstville Oval in Sydney.

The match starts at 1:10 PM local time (3:10 AM GMT) (8:40 AM IST).

Streaming of this game will be available on cricket.com.au, Cricket Australia Live apps and WBBL Facebook Page.

Pitch Condition/Report:

Hurstville Oval in Sydney is one of the unpredictable venues, especially in the Women’s BBL. There is no pattern of scores in the three WBBL games in the previous edition and the one game played in the last week. The Sixers were bowled out for only 88 while chasing 155 against Brisbane and ended up chasing 150 easily against Strikers here. They defended 144 and chased down a total of 115 in another two matches played in 2018.

Squads:

Sydney Sixers:

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

Adelaide Strikers:

Suzie Bates (C), Sophie Devine, Megan Schutt, Tahlia McGrath, Katelyn Pope, Danielle Hazell, Sarah Coyte, Tegan McPharlin, Bridget Patterson, Alex Price, Amanda-Jade Wellington, Tabatha Saville, Ellie Falconer.

Probable XI:

Sydney Sixers:

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

Adelaide Strikers:

Suzie Bates (C), Sophie Devine, Megan Schutt, Tahlia McGrath, Danielle Hazell, Sarah Coyte, Tegan McPharlin, Bridget Patterson, Alex Price, Amanda-Jade Wellington, Tabatha Saville.

Power Picks:

Alysa Healy is a much-needed performer for the Sixers as her consistency at the top could make a difference each and every time. Ashleigh Gardner is another such player who can take the game away with the bat. However, she hasn’t been among runs ever since the Women’s World T20 except for an unbeaten 50-ball 79 in early stages of this WBBL. Gardner is one big knock away from catching up momentum and producing a potent performance as she did in the previous edition of this tournament.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

This game has quite a few potential names for the multipliers. Ellyse Perry and Sophie Devine will be among front-runners due to their all-round skills. Alyssa Healy and Suzie Bates are too good to be considered as alternatives for captain and vice-captain roles.

Best Playing XI:

Alyssa Healy, Suzie Bates, Erin Burns, Tabatha Saville, Bridget Patterson, Ellyse Perry, Sophie Devine, Tahila McGrath, Lauren Cheatle, Sarah Aley, Daniel Hazell, Hayley Silver-Holmes.

Risky Playing XI:

Alyssa Healy, Suzie Bates, Erin Burns, Tabatha Saville, Bridget Patterson (VC), Sophie Devine, Tahila McGrath (C), Ashleigh Gardner, Lauren Smith, Megan Schutt, Marizanne Kapp.

Expert Advice:

Once again, the Sixers’ match creates a mess with big-ticket players and too many all-rounders. Adding to Ellyse Perry, Ashleigh Gardner, Dane Van Niekerk and Alyssa Healy, the Strikers’ Sophie Devine and Suzie Bates are part of this game with 10.5 credits. To reduce costs, the likes of Tahila McGrath and Silver-Holmes can be considered.

Probable Winners:

Sydney Sixers are a win away from moving back to the top of the table and the Strikers could face the wrath.
