Series: Womens Big Bash 2018-19
Match: 30th match
Date: 26th December 2018 (Wednesday)
Time: 7.45 PM (Local Time)
Venue: Perth Stadium, Perth
Half of the league matches have been done and dusted,Perth and Brisbane both share same amount of points although Perth played one match more. They are placed 3rd and 4th so it will be an even contest.
The match will be just after the match of Mens big bash between Adelaide and Perth. So it will be an used pitch. The match will be played under light and a little bit dew will make factor. Perth this season won 4 and lost 4. But they will be hopeful for a better performance as they are a star studded team. Last match their opening pair clicked for the first time and made a record partnership of over 130 runs. Their main problem is consuming dot balls. Brisbane is a good side and having too many dot balls can cost them the game.
Brisbane are comfortably placed 3rd and they will be very confident as they have beaten the top side of the tournament Sydney Sixers in the previous match. It was just not a win,it was demolishing The Sixers. They got 154 batting first and restricted the brilliant batters of Sixers in just 88. Now they have every chamce to make it to semifinal and also in their home ground as we are closing on to the business end of the tournament. Their top order is among runs and bowlers are contributing to their win. Grace harris, Kirby Short, Jess Jonassen are making the bulk portion of runs for them. Grace Harris has the best strike rate among all the batters and Sammy Jo Johnson is on 3rd position among most wicket takers. So they have been dominant.
Tomorrow will be a great clash because the two points tomorrow will bring both the teams a lot of good. As both the team are battling for the semifinal, a win against the other will benefit the most.
Teams should remain unchanged. Both team won their last matches so no changes are needed for any of the side.
Elyse Viillaini, Meg Lanning, Nicole Bolton, Heather Graham, Lauren Ebsary, Chloe Piparo, Amy Allen Jones, Kate Cross, Taneale Peschel, Hayleigh Brennan, Bhavi M devchand.
Beth Mooney, Grace Harris, Kirby short, Jess Jonassen, Sammy Jo Johnson, Laura wolvarddt, Delissa Kimmince, Laura Harris, Sune Luus, Haidey Birkett, Jema Birsby.
Weather- Its good for tomorrow with no chance of rain and Perth is not that rainy in terms of towns. So good to go for tomorrow.
Ground- The ground is not that big nor small but the pitch will be a little bit slow. So scores should be reasonable. Chasing could be difficult.
Toss- Teams winning the toss would like to bat with slow nature of the track in mind. Batting first have won more here than chasing.
Prediction – Brisbane might just win again as they are more confident and their bowling is doing better than Perth. Perth have to. limit their dot balls to counter Brisbane. Our team pick is Brisbane Heat women in this match.
