BHW vs HBHW Match Preview

Apart from her impressive century in the first week, Grace Harris has faced difficulties in providing her team with a strong start. She will be partnering with Georgia Redmayne at the top of the batting order. Brisbane will rely on their formidable middle order to achieve a high total in this match. Mignon du Preez has displayed excellent performance by scoring two half-centuries in her last three innings, making her a crucial player once again.

Although Georgia Voll and Amelia Kerr have shown glimpses of good play, the team will require at least one of them to remain at the crease until the end. Brisbane possesses two talented all-rounders in the form of Jess Jonassen and Charli Knott, who have collectively taken 19 wickets so far. Nicola Hancock and Courtney Sippel will commence the bowling attack with the new ball.

Elyse Villani and Lizelle Lee have consistently performed well as openers, and the team will once again rely on them for a strong start. However, the middle order has been a major weakness for Hobart this season.

Unfortunately, Heather Graham, Naomi Stalenberg, and Bryony Smith have struggled to score runs, which has had a significant impact on the team's performance. On a positive note, Heather Graham has been the standout bowler with 9 wickets and will be partnering with Shabnim Ismail with the new ball. Shabnim Ismail was expected to have a strong season, but she has yet to live up to expectations.

In terms of spin, Molly Strano has been the main contributor with 8 wickets, but she has not received much support from the other end.

Dream11 Prediction

We are backing the Brisbane Heat W to win this match. They are the more consistent of the two teams and are stronger compared to Hobart in all departments. On the other hand, Hobart is coming into this match on the back of 3 consecutive losses and will be low on confidence. Also, Brisbane has an excellent record against Hobart in previous head-to-head encounters.
