Hobart Hurricanes Women travel to Brisbane Heat Women in the upcoming fixture of the WBBL 2019. Since their statement win over Sydney Sixers, things have gone downhill for the defending champions as they have suffered back to back defeats at the hands of Sydney Thunder and Perth Scorchers. The Hurricanes, on the other hand, won their opening two games but were defeated by Sydney Thunder in the tightest of encounters in their third game.
Women’s Big Bash League 2019
Brisbane Heat Women vs Hobart Hurricanes Women
27th October 2019
8:40 AM IST
Allan Border Field, Brisbane
Bright sunny conditions with no chances of rain and temperature ranging around 26 degrees Celsius expected during the course of the game.
As this is going to be the second consecutive game on this surface, the pitch will start slowing down thereby making it harder for the batters to accumulate runs. Thus, a low-scoring contest could be on the cards.
No notable injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
Beth Mooney was the sole shining light in that abysmal defeat against Perth Scorchers on Saturday. Yet again, the onus will lie on her to bat throughout the inning whereas the rest of the batting unit will have to work on their shot selection after a number of batters gifted their wicket through some injudicious decision-making and lack of game-awareness.
Beth Mooney(w), Kirby Short(c), Grace Harris, Jess Jonassen, Maddy Green, Mikayla Hinkley, Laura Harris, Amelia Kerr, Delissa Kimmince, Sammy-Jo Johnson, Georgia Prestwidge
Heather Knight and Erin Fazakerley would be relied upon to offer significant contributions with the bat in hand whereas Nicola Carey is capable of single-handedly winning the game for her side. Tayla Vlaemick picked up two scalps in the last match and is a potent threat with the new ball.
Erin Fazackerley, Stefanie Daffara, Heather Knight, Nicola Carey, Fran Wilson, Corinne Hall(c), Chloe Tryon, Maisy Gibson, Tayla Vlaeminck, Emily Smith(w), Belinda Vakarewa
As always, Beth Mooney is a mandatory pick as she has two fifties across the three games played. Her exemplary consistency levels make her an ideal choice for the role of captaincy or vice-captaincy. Nicola Carey is another must-have as she can bring plenty of points to the Dream11 Team using his dual expertise. In the last game, she notched 39 runs from 37 balls after bagging two wickets in the first inning. Heather Knight was the top run-getter for her side( 374) and also picked up 14 wickets in the previous edition of the tournament indicating her prolific nature with both bat and bowl. Her inclusion is a no-brainer whilst Erin Fazackerley and Grace Harris also warrant a place in the fantasy side.
