STW Vs SSW Dream11, Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: A win today sees Sydney Sixes move to the top of league standings.
Currently the most pristine and sublime side in the Women’s Big Bash League with the least number of defeats at just two in the seven matches they have traversed in, Sydney Sixers have been in exemplary touch in this edition of the T20 league. The side have immersed and engrossed us in a titillating and exhilarating brand of cricket, one which has seen them emerge as firm contenders for the coveted trophy.
Finding themselves in third place ahead of today’s impending encounter with the 10 points in their artillery, the side embark on today’s encounter against Sydney Thunder aspiring for first place in the league. The side are entering the fray of today’s clash having last Hobart Hurricanes frayed in their last outing, cruising to a massive 29 run win in what was a testament to their emphatic gameplan.
Making 172 while batting first, the side’s bowlers came back to compliment the bats to perfection by sending their opposition packing for just 133 as they struck at regular intervals to leave the opposition famished. Elsewhere, their opponents of the day collapsed horridly in pursuit of what should have been a relatively easy target to see the side be handed over their third defeat in eight matches.
Faltering by 9 runs as they failed to peel off the 117 runs on the scoreboard, the side are in fifth place ahead of today’s imminent tie. They’ll be looking to overhaul that cringeworthy batting performance against a side who’ll capitalise on the same kind of catapultation.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Being a fresh wicket with this being the first match of the league to be contested here, the wicket should play opposing to its traditions atleast in the first part of the encounter. We envisage the batsmen finding it easy to pile on the runs in the early exchanges before the wicket regresses with the spinners wading into the clash to leave the bats tottering.

Her side’s top scorer with the 70 runs in 56 balls as she struck her way to the 4 sixes and 4 fours apiece, Elyse Perry played out a behemoth of an innings which was a testament to her colossal state as a player.
