SS-W vs ST-W Team Wicket-Keeper
A Healy (Price 10) will be the wicket-keeper of our squad. Healy was the Man of the Tournament in the last Women’s T20 club and she is a wonderful player. She played with an S/R of over 155 last season and just cannot be dropped from the team.

A Gardner (Price 9) will be our batter from Sydney Sixers Women. Gardner is a wonderful player and was in brilliant form in the last series against New Zealand. He can contribute with her bowling as well in this game.
R Haynes (Price 9.5) and H Knight (Price 10) will be our batters from Sydney Thunder Women. Haynes was not good in the last season of WBBL but she is a really good international level player who will play in the top-order whereas Knight is one of the best players in the women’s cricket circuit and her T20 numbers are sublime. Both of them are brilliant players.

S Jo-Johnson (Price 8.5) will be our all-rounder from the Sydney Thunder Women. She is a genuine wicket-taker and picked 18 wickets last season with the ball. Johnson will again carry the responsibility to take wickets up-front.
E Perry (Price 10.5) and M Kapp (Price 9.5) will be our all-rounders from the Sydney Sixers Women. Perry is a superstar player and batted at an average of 93.80 last season and is a really good wicket-taker as well whereas Kapp is a wicket-taker and picked 15 wickets in the last season of WBBL. Both of them are expected to earn a lot of points.
SS-W vs ST-W Team Bowlers
S Aley (Price 8.5) and S Campbell (Price 8) will be our bowlers from the Sydney Sixers Women. Aley picked 9 wickets last season whereas Campbell picked 5 wickets last season. Both of them are really good picks in this price category.
