THE TEAM NEWS

HOBART HURRICANES WOMEN

  • Hobart Hurricanes continued their streak without a win as they were defeated by Melbourne Renegades for the second time in quick succession and the knockout stages already look a long way off for the Hurricanes.
  • The Hurricanes struggled with the bat again with just one player in Heather Knight managing to reach the 20s as they stuttered their way to 108/8 which was never likely to be enough to defend.
  • The Renegades made light work of chasing down that total with the bowling unit seemingly low on confidence knowing they had such a big task on their hands and Belinda Vakarewa was the only player to take a wicket, with her two efforts proving in vain as her side fell to an eight-wicket loss.

SYDNEY SIXERS WOMEN

  • For the second time in this season’s Women’s Big Bash League, Sydney Sixers came out second-best against Brisbane Heat with the repeat of last year’s final once again going the way of the Heat.
  • In a similar theme to the first game, the cheap loss of both Alyssa Healy and Ellyse Perry proved difficult for the Sixers to deal with and despite some middle-order resilience, they were only able to post 123/7.
  • Despite managing to get Beth Mooney out for 25, which was her lowest score of this year’s competition to date, the Sixers could not capitalise and the Heat were able to chase the total down with relative ease as they claimed a seven-wicket victory.

THE PREDICTION

After five consecutive losses, the last thing Hobart Hurricanes need is a game against Sydney Sixers. The Hurricanes have never beaten the Sixers and have lost all 10 matches that the teams have played. Having won their opening two games, the Hurricanes have failed to win any of their last six with a no result included amongst five defeats. The Sixers have not performed consistently so far but will target this game against a side they have never lost to and should come out on top.
