Preview:

Just like every other WBBL season, the Sydney Sixers started off in style with four wins from the five matches they played. In the previous game against Melbourne Stars, the ace opening pair of Alyssa Healy and Ellyse Perry batted through 20 overs scoring 199 without losing a wicket. They won the match by 45 runs to complete a hat-trick of wins.

This hat-trick came after a record defeat to Brisbane Heat to whom the Sixers lost in the previous edition final. The Heat will be their rivals on Saturday when they played at the North Sydney Oval in the afternoon. The Brisbane Heat have been heavily relying on Beth Mooney. The opening batter has struck four fifties from six matches this season and the Heat have won three of them.


Weather Condition/Report:

This game is unlikely to get affected by the weather as a sunny weather is expected throughout Saturday with periodic clouds.

Expert Advice:

Alyssa Healy is going through the form of her life with the bat but that is not enough to make her captain. Beth Mooney is scoring a fifty almost every match while Ellyse Perry and Dan Van Niekerk are quite consistent at making most with their all-round ability. Unless one can correctly predict a big knock from Healy, making her captain ahead of the other doesn’t justify.

Probable Winners:

The Sydney Sixers are expected to settle the scores with Brisbane Heat.
