HB-W vs MS-W Dream11 : Melbourne Stars and Hobart Hurricanes meet for the second time within the space of a day in a hectic and congested schedule
Familiar faces after going at loggerheads with each other only yesterday, both of our opponents for the day are back at it come today. The day’s opening encounter in the Women’s Big Bash League will see Melbourne Stars and Hobart Hurricanes ply out their skill set in the middle yet again as either side step out well-versed with the opposition’s gameplan.
A part of the Festival Weekends, day 3 of the league will offer Melbourne Stars a chance to avenge their defeat to Hobart Hurricanes yesterday and amass their first points in the tally. Playing against Hobart Hurricanes yesterday, Melbourne’s Stars faltered shambolically in their pursuit of the 165 run target dished out infront of them, a run chase which couldn’t have gotten off underway in any worse fashion.
Losing a slew of wickets in the powerplay period, they found themselves four down instead the opening exchanges only, one they were never able to recover from. They never found themselves in the chase, managing to string and scramble their way to 144 as they stringed together a sort of revival from their collapse but one which never looked to threaten Hobart Hurricanes.
Elsewhere, for Hobart Hurricanes the win came bearing a momentous identity, not only owing to the emphatic 20 run manner it came in but also due it seeing their new set of players intertwine their skill set in tandem to come across as an organised and complete side. The side will be glad with the way things scrimmaged out for them yesterday, looking to reciprocate the same display today and justify the massive amount shelved out by the team management this season.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
There is help for the pacers of this wicket but not too much to perturb the batters from their sorties of making a good score over here. The side winning the toss will be looking to come out and field first as they look to extract everything out for the pacers in the early part of encounter before the wicket settles and plays out nicely for the side chasing.

HB-W vs MS-W Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Emma Inglis from Melbourne Stars comes into our wicket-keeping slot for this slot with the batter holding the highest spot in the batting order out of all the viable options. She comes out at number 3 for her side and will be looking to rectify her mistakes from yesterday, something we envision her doing today.
HB-W vs MS-W Dream11 Batswomen
The 28 runs for Lizelle Lee were not the only reason we retain the player from Melbourne Stars for this encounter. She waged a lone battle for her side, a player who showed her diminutives and guile to craft out a well worked innings, one which came at a time when the side were losing wicket left, right and centre.
We will be keeping faith in Mignon du Preez as well while from the opposition we have Erin Fazackerley come in after her 46 runs in 33 balls in the opening slot saw her make the most of the powerplay overs. She’s accompanied by Fran Wilson who stayed unbeaten on 29 runs, ensuing the death overs were fully capitalised on by her side.
HB-W vs MS-W Dream11 All-Rounders
Heather Knight’s all round ability as a player, her penchant and affinity to ensure she delivers match winning displays see her become an instant pick for us in this segment. She’s accompanied by Chloe Tyron whose 46 runs took just 18 balls to come in, seeing her smash her way to the fence on a stunning and staggering 7 occasions which included the three 6s and four 4s.
Her 2 wickets and 40 runs with the bat was a performance which deserved much more than ending up on the losing side. Erin Osborne was undoubtedly the best performer for the side yesterday, a player who impressed us with her tenacious display which was vindictive of her tenacity.
HB-W vs MS-W Dream11 Bowling Order
Having snared two bowling picks from Melbourne Stars in the previous department, we have gotten in just the lone pick from the side in this segment in the form of Chloe Rafferty. Elsewhere from the opposition we have gone in with the dangerous and menacing partnership of Nicola Carey and Belinda Vakarewa with Belinda putting in the best bowling display of 3-27 for her side in yesterday’s clash.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Knight continues to be our side’s captain for this clash as well while we have selected Osborne as our vice-captain.
