SBW vs OVIW Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Aug 19, 2023

Right now, it appears as if the Southern Brave are the team to beat, as this excellent squad has gone 5-1 for the season and remains top of the table. Conversely, the Invincibles have had an up-and-down season with a 2-3 record (and one No Result), but things might not get better with the news that Dane van Niekerk will now miss the entire tournament due to an injured finger. All-rounder Nadine de Klerk will replace van Niekerk, although Bates will be the captain.

SBW vs OVIW Team Previews

Southern Brave Women

The Brave have won four straight games, but it’s not hard to see why, as the team is full of great batters. Leading everyone on the team (and the entire Women’s Hundred) is Mandhana with 224 runs and a great average of 44.80. It was unusual to see her get a duck against the Spirit, but she’s had scores as high as 70*.

It’s a surprise to see Bouchier (195) being the second-highest scorer, as we thought Wyatt (169) would be in the 200s by now like Mandhana. Still, having so many reliable batters is never a bad thing. There’s quite a gap to the next best batters, with Adams (59) and Tryon (58) performing well enough with good contributions.

The bowling is also a massive strength for the Brave, as they have the league’s best bowler, as well as batter, with Adams on fire taking 14/142 (ER of 7.10) for the season. To see that Shrubsole (6/143) is the team’s second-best bowler is quite revelatory, as it’s clear how vital Adams is to the Brave. Bell (4 wickets) and Tryon (4) are doing their bit to help out.

Oval Invincibles Women

Dane van Niekerk had missed the last three games for the Invincibles, but the news that she’ll miss the entire season is hard to ignore. Up until her injury, she’d been a decent batter with 44 runs, but her captaincy is going to be hard to replace. The team is still in fourth place, so there’s hope of reaching the Finals.

It looks like Kapp (111 runs) will have to be the one to lead the team in batting, as she’s looked great in her last two games with 64 & 30. Winfield-Hill (108) looks solid, but we’re still hoping for more from Bates (73) and Capsey (77). No one on the team has scored more than 64 runs in an innings, so there needs to be more urgency.

Kapp is also incredibly important to the Invincibles with her bowling, as she’s the best with 9/93. MacDonald-Gay has been solid with 8/116 and Scholfield has 6/107. We thought Capsey would be given the chance to bowl more, as she only has 8 over so far with figures of 1/63. A lot of the bowling burden still falls on Kapp right now.

SBW vs OVIW Toss Prediction

The pitch might be more erratic and quicker later in the game, therefore it is typically best to bat first in this situation. It is not unusual for teams to win when they bat first, as it has historically been the case with 42/67 T20 games going to the team batting first.

Pitch and Conditions

Since there is so much movement and turn, the Rose Bowl is frequently kind to spinners, although skilled batters may handle anything if they are experienced. Some batters may be confused by the slower pitch at times, which means fast bowlers can take advantage of this.

SBW vs OVIW Betting Tips

The Invincibles currently have the more exciting Betway odds, but the Brave are certainly the favourites because of their great 5-1 record. If you feel like taking a risk, then the Invincibles are worth a try, but we still trust the Brave more at the moment.

The batting of Mandhana, Bouchier, and Wyatt is a formidable trio, and Adams is such a lethal bowler for the Brave, that the team is looking too strong. The Invincibles have a decent roster, but it feels like Kapp has to do so much, and if she has a bad game, then there are not a lot of other reliable players.

Bet on the Southern Brave to win.

Bonus Cricket Bets

  1. Bet365


    Southern Brave Women Top Batter: Maia Bouchier



Mandhana is a good bet to make, but her odds aren't so interesting. Therefore, we like Bouchier because her odds can give a better money return and she's actually the team's second-highest scorer with 195. She had a big 63* recently and can take over games when in the zone.

  1. Parimatch


    Oval Invincibles Women Top Batter: Marizanne Kapp



Kapp is averaging 37.00 and has a big total of 111 runs, but it's quite a surprise that her odds are so good. You could get a huge return if she is the best batter, and we trust her more than Bates or Winfield-Hill at the moment.

  1. Betway


    Smriti Mandhana To Score More Than 22.5 Runs: Yes



We think Bouchier will be the top scorer, but Mandhana is a safe bet to score over 22.5 runs, as she's already averaging 44.80 and is superb lately, with over 30 runs in each of her last two matches.
