THE TEAM NEWS

HOBART HURRICANES WOMEN

  • Hobart Hurricanes were left to rue the weather in pursuit of ending their two-match losing streak in the Women’s Big Bash League as their contest with Sydney Thunder was abandoned without a ball being bowled in Burnie.
  • The Hurricanes will be hopeful that this second game against the Thunder can go ahead following the washout but know they need to improve following those two under-par performances.
  • Youngster Maisy Gibson could be key to her side’s chances with the Australian coming into this game with seven wickets to her name in the competition so far and boasts an average of 12.14.

SYDNEY THUNDER WOMEN

  • Sydney Thunder were robbed of the chance of making it four wins in a row as the weather curtailed any hope of adding to their winning run but they get another opportunity to face Hobart Hurricanes here.
  • The Thunder have been in superb form and have done particularly well with the bat but Alex Blackwell has been the star so far with 164 runs from her four matches and her average of 82 is the second best in the competition.
  • The bowling unit have also performed well but the wickets have been shared around so far with Shabnim Ismail, Nida Dar and Samantha Bates all taking five wickets apiece and the Thunder will hope their form can continue.

THE PREDICTION

Hobart Hurricanes and Sydney Thunder will hope for better luck with the weather this time around as yesterday’s contest was washed out without a ball being bowled. The forecast in Burnie is poor once again and they will both hope that they can at least get some action in even if the game has to be reduced in length. The Thunder come into the game as the form team and they should come out on top if a result can be forced.
