It will be a battle between the heavyweights and a team who is yet to get their act together in the 41st match of Women’s Big Bash League when Sydney Sixers and Hobart Hurricanes lock horns later today. While Sydney Sixers are at the 3rd position in the points table, Hobart Hurricanes’ performance has gone haywire as the tournament has progressed and are currently stationed at the 7th position with just two victories under their belt.
In the previous encounter between the two teams, it was Sydney Sixers who romped home by 9 runs. They have beaten Hobart Hurricanes in their last 5 encounters and will look to continue their domination. It will be a must-win clash for Hobart Hurricanes if they harbour hopes of going through to the final 4.
The North Sydney Oval has been a predominantly high scoring venue. The average score in women’s T20I’s has been 163 which goes onto prove the flatness of this pitch. It is expected to be a flat deck and we should expect a high scoring encounter on our hands. The team winning the toss might be tempted to bat which has been the tradition in this ground so far.

HB-W vs SS-W Dream 11 Wicket-keeper
Alyssa Healy has been a prolific run-scorer and a sound option when it comes to wicket-keeping. She has looked in good touch in the tournament and is a very important pick in any Dream 11 team.
HB-W vs SS-W Dream 11 Batswomen
Ashleigh Gardner and Erin Burns will be our first two picks in this segment solely due to their consistency in the tournament so far. They have been a nail in the coffin for the opposition and this duo will look to continue their good run. Gardner scored a fluent 28 of 26 deliveries in the previous clash while Burns also chipped in with a useful knock.
Corrine Hall will be leading Hobart Hurricanes and will look to lead by example. She is definitely one of the most important players for Hobart if they harbour hopes of staging a comeback in the tournament.
Fran Wilson is another important batswoman for the Hobart Hurricanes. Her form will be important to their chances. They have already lost 6 matches and one more defeat will leave them in a precarious situation.
Erin Fazackerley will be our last pick in this segment. She hasn’t had a good tournament so far but a big knock should be around the corner given the class she posses.
HB-W vs SS-W Dream 11 All-rounders
Ellyse Perry won’t take any further part in the tournament and it should be kept in mind while picking this segment. Heather Knight given her reputation should be our first pick in this segment. She can provide the much-needed impetus later down and takes wickets consistently.
Dane Van Niekerk will be our 2nd pick in the segment. She will be returning to the playing XI after missing out the previous few games.
HB-W vs SS-W Dream Bowlers
Marizanne Kapp will be the first pick in this segment. She bagged a couple of important wickets in the previous clash and is also a death overs bowler.
Stella Campbell will be the 2nd pick in this segment. She is a newcomer and hasn’t played too many matches but it might worth the gamble as she is a good frontline bowler who has the ability to trouble top-order batters. Tayla Vlaeminck will be our last pick.
Captain and Vice-Captain
Our captain for the day will be Allysa Healy and vice-captain will be Ashleigh Gardner.
