Betting Tips
  • Opener Smriti Mandhana hit 64 from 44 against Melbourne Renegades on Wednesday. She is our tip for Sydney Thunder’s highest run scorer against Melbourne Stars. Slow left-arm bowler Samantha Bates has taken a wicket in three of their four games and is our recommendation for Sydney Thunder’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • Elyse Villani made 35 from 29 balls at the top of the order for Melbourne Stars in their defeat against Hobart Hurricanes. She has been in excellent form and is our tip for their highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Kim Garth continues to pick up wickets for fun and is well worth backing as Melbourne Stars’ top wicket taker against Sydney Thunder.
  • Ireland’s Kim Garth has almost 90 runs and 7 wickets over her last three games. The Melbourne Stars’ all-rounder is our prediction for the Player of The Match Award.

Sydney Thunder Women vs Melbourne Stars Women Match Prediction & Betting Tips, WBBL 2021

Match 22 of the WBBL brings Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Stars together at the University of Tasmania Stadium, Launceston on Saturday afternoon. Last year’s Champions Sydney Thunder prop up the table with no wins in the tournament so far. Melbourne Stars have won two games and sit in 6th place. Read on as we preview this match. The game begins at 13:05 local time.

Sydney Thunder’s miserable season continued on Wednesday but there was a positive of Smriti Mandhana finding some form with the bat. Another big score from her will make them competitive in this game.

Melbourne Stars were well beaten by Hobart Hurricanes in their last game but have some of their key players in form. They will be confident of picking up a victory in this match.

Sydney Thunder Women Team News & Playing 11

SYTW Team News

A lack of middle and lower order runs saw Sydney Thunder come up short against Melbourne Renegades on Wednesday. There are no injuries in the side and, due to an improved performance in their last match, we expect to see the same XI.

SYTW Key Players

  • Smriti Mandhana - After three single figure scores, Mandhana hit a six and 4 fours in her 64 on Wednesday. More runs from the Indian opener will be a big boost for the side.
  • Deepti Sharma - The Indian all-rounder has made unbeaten scores of 23 and 44 in his last two games. She has also chipped in with wickets in all but one match.
  • Samantha Bates - The slow left-arm orthodox bowler returned impressive figures of 1-16 from 4 overs against Melbourne Renegades.

SYTW Team Form

Sydney Thunder have now lost all four completed games in this year’s WBBL. There were small signs of encouragement in the last game.

Tahlia Wilson (wk), Smriti Mandhana, Phoebe Litchfield, Corinne Hall, Anika Learoyd, Deepti Sharma, Hannah Darlington (c), Lauren Smith, Issy Wong, Kate Peterson, Samantha Bates

Melbourne Stars Women Team News & Playing 11

MLSW Team News

A lack of penetration with the ball meant that Melbourne Stars came out on the receiving end against Hobart Hurricanes in their last game. There were plenty of useful scores with the bat and the Stars have plenty of runs in their side. They have reported no injuries and we anticipate they will be unchanged in this match.

MLSW Key Players

  • Elyse Villani - Although she didn’t hit the highest score in the side, Villani still smashed 6 fours in her 29-ball 35 on Wednesday.
  • Kim Garth - After taking 3 wickets in successive games, the Irish all-rounder had to make do with dismissing Ruth Johnston for a golden duck in her last outing.
  • Annabel Sutherland - The young Australian all-rounder has taken at least a wicket in every game so far and has also posted a half-century in the tournament.

MLSW Team Form

After winning successive games, the run was halted against Hobart Hurricanes on Wednesday. However, the performance was still strong and overall their form is good.

Melbourne Stars Women Predicted Playing 11

Elyse Villani, Annabel Sutherland, Meg Lanning (c), Maia Bouchier, Kim Garth, Erun Osborne, Nicole Faltum (wk), Tess Flintoff, Maddy Darke, Linsey Smith, Sophie Day

Sydney Thunder Women vs Melbourne Stars Women Prediction

No matter who they come up against in this year’s WBBL, Sydney Thunder are unable to produce a performance across the team and register a victory. We expect them to run Melbourne Stars close in this match but ultimately we are predicting a win for the Stars and another defeat for Thunder.

Final Verdict

Melbourne Stars Women are favorites to beat Sydney Thunder Women at the odds of 1.61

STW vs MSW Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Tahlia Wilson (8) will be our wicket-keeper. The young Australian has had plenty of opportunities with the bat and has kept well during the tournament.

  • Batsmen

    Meg Lanning (10.5), Smriti Mandhana (10), Elyse Villani (9.5) and Maia Bouchier (8.5) are our batters. Mandhana and Villani are the form players on each side.

  • All-rounders

    Deepti Sharma (9), Annabel Sutherland (9) and Kim Garth (9) will be our all-rounders. Garth is producing with bat and ball in this tournament.

  • Bowlers

    Samantha Bates (9), Hannah Darlington (9) and Sophie Day (8.5) are our bowlers. Bates and Darlington have both toiled admirably with little reward for Sydney Thunder.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Kim Garth will be captain, Elys Villani her deputy

STW vs MSW Dream11 Team Prediction
