Expert Advice:

Sammy-Jo Johnson looked quite unsettled with the ball in her previous couple of games. She is a brilliant bowler but has struggled a bit as far as her recent performances are concerned. She will be a risky player to pick but will be worth for any Grand League side.

Mooney, Bates, Devine and Jonassen can’t be picked in one team due to credits issue. Devine and Mooney have been the most consistent players which is why we have picked the duo in the first team.

Probable Winners:

Brisbane Heat is expected to win the WBBL 2019.
