Date & Time: Saturday, October 19, 13:40 IST
Venue: North Sydney Oval, Sydney, Australia
Will it be the replica of last season’s finale?
Sydney Sixers are back with a bang as they opened their account in the opener of the tournament against the Thunder. They will be happy with the all-round performance, as the regular suspects come to fore in the clinical effort. Now they face on the defending Champions Brisbane Heat in their second match of the season. It was the very Brisbane that stopped Sixers in the previous edition‘s final. It will be an exciting contest to watch out for as Sixers seeks to give it back.
Sixers XI: E Perry (c), A Healy, A Gardner, E Burns, J Hicks, M Kapp, M Darke, L Smith,
H Silver-Holmes, S Campbell, S Aley.
Heat XI: B Mooney, K Short (c), G Harris, Jess Jonassen, S Jo-Johnsen, M Green, M Hinkley, D Kimmince, A Kerr, L Hais, G Prestwidge/ C Sippel.
The surface at the North Sydney Oval has been excellent for batting as runs piled on in the opening match of the season. It will be the same for Saturday’s contest as well.
She has continued from where she left at the international stage. After her amazing 148 against Sri Lanka, she has come up with a brisk 42 which paved the path for the Sixers to post a big total. She has a phenomenal PPM of close to 90 in the last 5 games in the format.
She may not have been in form at the big stage but she has shown her class in the domestic circuit with an all-round performance. She has every chance to replicate the same in the second match as well given her record in WBBBL.
She is having a dream run since opening for batting. Her performance has certainly not hyped up as it should have been with some stalwarts taking the limelight in the national side. She has a PPM of 54.4 and an MDTA of 1.67 in the last 5 games.
She was excellent for Heat in the previous editions which is one of the reasons for the team becoming the champion. She has a PPM of 54 and an MDTA of 1.25 in the last 5 games played in the format.
