Sydney Sixers Women vs Melbourne Stars Women Prediction & Betting Tips, WBBL 2021
Sydney Sixers Women will take on Melbourne Stars Women in Match 1 of the 2021-22 WBBL. This T20 fixture will be played at The Blundstone Arena, Hobart on September 30 starting at 19:40 local time.
Sydney Sixers Women won the WBBL title in 2017 and 2018 but have finished in 5th place in each of the last two seasons. In 2020 and 2021 the Sixers finished with 14 points, last year they missed out on 4th place and the play-offs by virtue of net-run-rate. Captain Ellyse Perry is joined in the Sixers squad by fellow Australian marquee players Ashleigh Gardner and wicket-keeper Alyssa Healy. They have only two overseas marquee players with Shafali Verma boosting the batting line-up and Radha Yadav adding left-arm spin to the bowling attack.
Melbourne Stars Women finished top of the group stage last year but lost to Sydney Thunder in the final in North Sydney in November. Although there was disappointment in the camp, it was far and away their most successful campaign after previous finishes of 5th, 5th, 7th, 7th and 8th. Meg Lanning finished 2nd in the run scorers list with 491 runs, Nat Sciver took 19 wickets and was second only to Sammy-Jo Johnson. This year’s overseas marquee players are Maia Boucher (England), Linsey Smith (England) and Kim Garth (Ireland).
