WBBL 2019 Match 17 – HBW vs STW Fantasy Preview

After a few days off in the 2019 Women’s Big Bash League, we had one game yesterday and have 4 more matches lined up for 2nd November, one of them seeing Sydney Thunder Women in action. With 3 wins in 4 games at the moment, they’ve come back strong after that opening loss to Sydney Sixers and they will want a fourth straight win to secure that top spot on the 2019 WBBL points table.

They’re up against Hobart Hurricanes Women with the latter having begun well with two straight wins but then having slumped to two straight losses. Hurricanes are in the middle of the table and they will hope for a good result at their home ground. However, they’ve lost their last 4 T20 games to Thunder Women. Keep reading for our complete Fantain (Use Code “READ123”) fantasy preview of the HB-W vs ST-W game…

Hobart Hurricanes Women

With the ball, Maisy Gibson is leading the charts for this team with 7 wickets in 4 games and her consistency has been remarkable, picking at least a wicket in all of her last 8 games across formats. Also having bagged 6 wickets with at least one scalp in each game is Nicola Carey and she’s a good candidate for captain or vice-captain as she’s got scores of 11, 60*, 39, 20, also being the team’s highest run scorer so far.

Another all-round performer is England’s Heather Knight who has one fifty and a tally of 100+ runs to go with 3 wickets so far in the 2019 WBBL. Tayla Vlaeminck went wicketless in the first 2 games and now has a total of 4 wickets in the tournament. She hasn’t had great returns in recent games but her lower popularity will benefit you in fantasy leagues. Hayley Matthews is out with a ban and shouldn’t be picked.

Sydney Thunder Women

All of the Thunder overseas signings have been good so far with Shabnim Ismail and Nida Dar both bagging 5 wickets in 4 games each. Ismail has 200+ international wickets and there’s a lot of experience there while Dar could be one of your fantasy team captain or vice-captain, because of her abilities with the bat. She has 8 international fifties which includes her knock of 75 against SA Women in May this year.

Someone you can’t miss in your Fantain (Use Code “READ123”) fantasy team is Alex Blackwell who has been piling on the runs and it was 9 games ago when she last bagged a single digit score. Since then, she has a couple of fifties and a couple of forties too. Your wicket-keeper pick can also come from here as New Zealand’s Rachel Priest scored 45 in the last game and has a tournament total of slightly below 100 runs so far.
