MOW vs SBW Team Previews

Manchester Originals Women

For the Originals to have Wolvaardt and Wellington on the team, it’s been a pretty disappointing season. Even if the Originals win, they can finish at best in fourth place with 8 points. Manchester has a 2-3 record (with two NR), but you have to feel they could have done more.

Dottin (108 runs) and Wolvaardt (101) have been decent enough, although considering Wolvaardt made 286 runs last season, it’s quite a poor effort this year. There just hasn’t been much batting help from the entire team, as Lamb (55), Wellington (66), and Morris (16) also haven’t stepped up when the team needed them the most.

Wellington was the top wicket-taker last year with 17, but she’s managed only four this season. Morris (8 wickets) and Ecclestone (7 wickets) have done okay, but you have to wonder why Wellington couldn’t bowl as well as she did last season.

Southern Brave Women

The Brave have simply been amazing this year, with a great 6-1 record and wins in their last five games. They are certainly the favourite to win the title, and what’s more, they still have something to play for in this match. The Fire and the Superchargers are close behind, so the Brave will want another win to be sure of the top spot. After all, the team with the best record gets to sit out the Eliminator game and simply wait for their challenger in the Final.

The team is miles ahead of everyone thanks to three standout batters, including Mandhana (226), Bouchier (217), and Wyatt (176). Even Adams has done exceedingly well with 109 runs, which is strange to think that the Brave’s fourth-best batter has still scored more runs than Wolvaardt. Bouchier is perhaps the team’s most reliable batter so far with a 36.16 average, and isn’t far behind Mandhana in terms of runs scored.

Not just good with the bat, Adams has also taken 15 wickets for 165 runs, mostly thanks to her 4/11 effort against the Spirit. She’s had fantastic support from Shrubsole (7 wickets) and Bell (5 wickets), which makes the Brave’s bowling lineup so deadly.

MOW vs SBW Toss Prediction

Any captain winning the toss would be right to bat first, and this would really suit the Brave. Look out for spinners in the second innings.

Pitch and Conditions

The Old Trafford pitch is a favourite for batters, and big scores have been made on this famous ground in the past. In 60 T20 games, for example, the team batting first has won 34 times and scores of around 150-160 are common. The pitch can be useful for spinners, but pace bowlers often don't find much movement or speed.

MOW vs SBW Betting Tips

The Originals will want this 2023 season to be over as fast as possible and likely won’t come out with much urgency or excitement. The Brave, meanwhile, will be eager to cling on to their top spot and after winning 5 games in a row, look by far the better team.

If Mandhana, Bouchier, and Wyatt can each score roughly 30-40 runs each and keep up a steady flow of boundaries, then the Brave should cruise to victory. The Brave’s bowlers like Adams and Shrubsole should be able to handle batters like Dottin and Wolvaardt, as neither one has been great this year.

The Betway odds are a little less interesting to bet on the Brave, but it’s a safer bet because they are simply too strong for the Originals.

Bet on the Southern Brave to win.

Bonus Cricket Bets

  1. Betway


    Manchester Originals Women Top Batter: Deandra Dottin



There's a good chance to earn money with Dottin, as she's batted quite well and is more consistent than Wolvaardt. Dottin is averaging 21.60 and we actually trust her to score more runs for her team.

  1. Parimatch


    Southern Brave Women Top Batter: Maia Bouchier



It's a surprise to see Bouchier with such good odds, as she's averaging 36.16 and has scored almost as much as Mandhana. Bouchier is far more reliable right now and could end up being the team's best overall batter, so jump on this chance while you can.
