Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Women's Big Bash League 2019 - Melbourne Stars v Hobart Hurricanes
The 3rd match of the Women's Big Bash League 2019 will be played between Melbourne Stars and Hobart Hurricanes at the Junction Oval in Melbourne.
Melbourne Stars did not have a great season last year and ended at the second last place in in the points table after the league stage with 5 wins and 8 losses from their 14 games.
Hobart Hurricanes had an even more terrible experience with the team managing only 2 wins out of their 14 games. They lost their remaining 12 games and ended with a pitiable net run rate of -0.364.
After having a low season last year due to the lack of quality batters, Melbourne Stars have roped in Elyse Villani from Perth Scorchers. Emma Inglis from Melbourne Renegades has also made her way into the side.
South African players Mignon du Preez and Lizelle Lee would also be instrumental for the team's success in the tournament.
Following a disappointing season last year, Hobart Hurricanes have went in for a complete overhaul with them roping in two Australian players in all-rounder Nicola Carey and pacer Tayla Vlaeminck.
In the absence of Indian opener Smriti Mandhana, who is suffering from a toe injury, England's Fran Wilson has been picked as a replacement. South African all-rounder Chloe Tryon and England Skipper Heather Knight will further bolster the Hurricanes' camp.
Let's have a look at the squads of both teams:
Hobart Hurricanes- Corinne Hall (c), Nicola Carey, Stefanie Daffara, Erin Fazackerley, Katelyn Fryett, Maisy Gibson, Brooke Hepburn, Heather Knight, Hayley Matthews, Sasha Moloney, Meg Phillips, Emily Smith, Chloe Tryon, Belinda Vakarewa, Tayla Vlaeminck, Fran Wilson
