Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction Women's Big Bash League 2019 - Sydney Sixers v Adelaide Strikers
The 54th match of the Women's Big Bash League 2019 will be played between Sydney Sixers and Adelaide Strikers at the Hurstville Oval in Sydney.
In the recent encounter between the two teams, Adelaide Strikers beat Sydney Sixers by 8 wickets. The Sixers were looking really good in the tournament at one point with both the openers Ellyse Perry and Alyssa Healy firing. However, since the shoulder injury to Perry, Healy has also not looked the player she was in the company of her compatriot.
The skipper was dismissed for nought in the fixture against the Strikers. There was some quality remaining in the line-up in the form of South Africa's Marizanne Kapp and Dane van Niekerk with them contributing 20 and 19 runs respectively.
However, they did not receive any support from the other batters and the team made only 93 runs from their 20 overs. Sarah Coyte was the star for the Strikers and picked up three wickets while conceding just 9 runs from her 4 overs. Megan Schutt and Tahila McGrath also picked up two wickets each while being economical at the same time.
The 93-run total was always going to be far too easy for the Strikers, especially with their opening combination of Suzie Bates and Sophie Devine.
Continuing her great form in the tournament, Devine remained unbeaten on 46. With a 30-run hand from McGrath, the Strikers chased down the total easily with almost 5 overs remaining. They won by 8 wickets and also collected some additional points in the net run rate column.
Sydney Sixers have slipped out of the top 4 in the Women's Big Bash League 2019 points table while Adelaide Strikers have reached the top with 20 points.
