THE TEAM NEWS

SYDNEY THUNDER WOMEN

  • Sydney Thunder’s form has completely deserted them and they now look like they have a big task on their hands if they are to challenge for the knockout stages after losing a fourth consecutive match.
  • Brisbane Heat were the latest side to defeat the Thunder as they went down to another big loss but they will be disappointed with their efforts with the bat after an impressive showing with the ball.
  • The Thunder restricted the Heat to 128/8 and would have had high hopes of chasing that down but no player for the Sydney side made it into the 20s and the constant loss of wickets saw them collapse to 96 all out.

ADELAIDE STRIKERS WOMEN

  • Adelaide Strikers completed a big win over Melbourne Stars as they did the double over the struggling side to stay in touch at the top of the Women’s Big Bash League ladder but will be acutely aware that they cannot take their foot off the gas.
  • The Strikers now face a more difficult task against Sydney Thunder but will again be looking to capitalise like they did against the Stars with Sophie Devine set to play another big role with both bat and ball.
  • Devine struck a superb unbeaten 77 from just 58 balls to help her side to 153/2 before she dominated with the ball with figures of 3-13 and her efforts helped the Strikers claim a big win by 57 runs.

THE PREDICTION

Sydney Thunder need to halt their losing streak or face elimination from the Women’s Big Bash League. They face an Adelaide Strikers side who are in search of their third consecutive win and another victory for them here would put them in a great position to qualify for the knockout stages. The Thunder have struggled with both bat and ball of late and with the likes of Sophie Devine in such good form, another win looks to be on the cards for the Strikers.
