Expert Advice:

It is extremely difficult to pick Bates, Devine, Mooney and Jonassen together in the team. For that to happen, you will have to pick Mikayla Hinkley who literally does nothing. She bats at number 10 and doesn’t bowl as well which might cost you if any of the top players have an off-day which happened with Jonassen. So it would be wise to drop either of the aforementioned four players and prepare a balanced team which will win you the contests.

Probable Winners:

Brisbane Heat is expected to win this match.
