THE TEAM NEWS

HOBART HURRICANES WOMEN

  • After two straight wins to begin this season’s Women’s Big Bash League, Hobart Hurricanes have been unable to maintain their start and have lost their last two consecutive games, with defeat against Brisbane Heat their latest loss.
  • Hobart were thankful for a superb batting display by Heather Knight whose unbeaten 61 helped steady the innings that would have been a disaster without her as the Hurricanes stuttered their way to 123/8.
  • Their bowling unit did a solid job in defending that total and had looked set for a unlikely win but a terrible 18th over from Belinda Vakarewa, in which she conceded 19 runs, put the Heat in the driving seat and they were able to condemn the Hurricanes to defeat with one ball remaining.

SYDNEY THUNDER WOMEN

  • Sydney Thunder have put their opening day defeat to Sydney Sixers well and truly behind them having won the next three after that game with a victory over Melbourne Stars their latest triumph.
  • Each bowler took a wicket but Rene Farrell was the pick with an economy rate of 4.50 as the Stars made 141/5 which the Thunder managed to chase down with two balls remaining to claim the four-wicket victory.
  • Alex Blackwell continued her strong start to the tournament with another unbeaten score in the 40s to take her tally to 164 and her knock of 45* complemented the effort of Rachel Priest who managed the same score although she lost her wicket.

THE PREDICTION

Sydney Thunder have started their WBBL campaign in great form and will be looking to make it four wins in a row as they head to Hobart to face the Hurricanes. The home side have lost their last two and will be keen to rediscover the form they showed when winning their first two matches. The Thunder have won their last four contests against the Hurricanes and with form on their side ahead of this meeting, they can extend their winning streak.
