Preview:

The defending champions Brisbane Heat had a mixed start to the tournament as they thumped Sydney Sixers, their fellow finalists of the 2018/19 season by a huge 92-run margin. However, the other Sydney team, the Sydney Thunder chased down their total of 150/9 with nine balls to spare. The batting effort that was seen in the first game went missing in the second match as they ended up with a below-par score.

They will now face the Perth Scorchers in their first home match at the Allan Border Field. The Scorchers’ campaign began to a tough loss to the Melbourne Renegades. Despite an unbeaten half-century from Natalie Sciver, the Scorchers posted only 132/5. The total was too less to defend but Perth team tried their best by pushing the game to the final over by taking wickets.

Expert Advice:

Lack of players with 8 credits is going to play an impact in the fantasy team selection.  As many as seven players value 9.5 credits and more including the likes of Meg Lanning and Beth Mooney of 10.5 credits. Only one of those two players will be able to be part of a good fantasy side. Few things to be noted while selecting a fantasy team are Nicole Bolton bowling at least two overs while Natalie Sciver’s bowling prowess not being used.

Probable Winners:

The Brisbane Heat are expected to register their 2nd win in three matches.
