Preview:

Adelaide Strikers are currently leading the points table with 20 points and have already qualified for the semi-final stage. But they would like to end their league stage with a win.

For Strikers, Sophie Divine has given some commendable all-round performances in the on-going tournament. She has amassed 639 runs in 13 games along with scalping 15 wickets. She would be eager to replicate her form in the upcoming game as well. In bowling, they also have Amanda-Jade Wellington, who has grabbed 16 wickets in her 13 outings. She has emerged as the leading wicket-taker in the team.

Sydney Sixers have already been ruled from the contention to qualify for the semi-final. They suffered back to back five consecutive defeats that led them out of the tournament. However, with the likes of Alyssa Healy, Marizanne Kapp, and Erin Burns, they will aim to end their WBBL 2019 campaign on a winning note.

Expert Advice:

Eric Burns scored a half-century in WBBL 2019. However, she has been struggling to attain consistency and converting good starts into big scores. Even though Burns is struggling through poor form, she holds the calibre to play a good knock. She might emerge as a vital pick in any Grand League side.
