Which Team will Win WBBL 2021

2019 result: runners-up
Captain: Suzie Bates
Overseas players: Bates (NZL), Stafanie Taylor (WI), Laura Wolvaardt (RSA)
Other key players: Tahlia McGrath, Megan Schutt, Sarah Coyte, Amanda-Jade Wellington

Runners-up last year, Adelaide Strikers are among the outsiders this time out after seeing star all-rounder Sophie Devine leave for Perth Scorchers.

Devine was in sublime form in 2019 and her absence will be a big loss, despite Stafanie Taylor – who suffered a knee injury last season – returning to Adelaide for a full season this time.

Suzie Bates leads the team and Laura Wolvaardt is their third overseas player, while Megan Schutt remains a key bowler too.

But without Devine’s star quality, they look outsiders to even reach the play-offs this time around.

Adelaide Strikers Team Squad

Darcie Brown, Suzie Bates (NZ), Sarah Coyte, Ellie Falconer, Amanda-Jade Wellington, Katie Mack, Tegan McPharlin, Tahlia McGrath, Annie O'Neil, Bridget Patterson, Madeline Penna, Alex Price, Megan Schutt, Stafanie Taylor (WI), Laura Wolvaardt (SA)

Adelaide Strikers WBBL 2020 odds

Adelaide Strikers are 10.00 to win the Women’s Big Bash League with Bet365 and 8.50 with Betway

2019 result: winners (2nd title)
Captain: Jess Jonassen
Overseas players: Nadine de Klerk (RSA), Maddy Green (NZL), Amelia Kerr (NZL)
Other key players: Jonassen, Delissa Kimmince, Grace Harris

Looking for a third consecutive victory in the WBBL, Brisbane Heat will have to do without their former star player.

Beth Mooney was key to each of their two titles, being voted Player of the Final on both occasions and scoring plenty of runs.

Without Mooney, and with captain Kirby Short having retired too, Brisbane Heat’s price has gone up.

Jess Jonassen and Amelia Kerr provide a strong spin attack, and they are still fancied to reach the play-offs, but a third title looks a step too far.

Brisbane Heat Team Squad

Maddy Green (NZ), Nicola Hancock, Grace Harris, Laura Harris, Mikayla Hinkley, Jess Jonassen, Amelia Kerr (NZ), Delissa Kimmince, Nadine de Klerk (SA), Charli Knott, Lilly Mills, Georgia Prestwidge, Georgia Redmayne, Courtney Sippel, Georgia Voll

Brisbane Heat WBBL 2020 odds

Brisbane Heat can be backed at 7.50 to win the 2020 Women’s Big Bash League with Betway and at 7.00 with Bet365.

2019 result: seventh
Captain: Corinne Hall
Overseas players: Hayley Matthews (WI), Rachel Priest (NZL), Chloe Tryon (RSA), Hayley Jensen* (NZL)
Other key players: Nicola Carey, Naomi Stalenberg, Belinda Vakarewa

Hobart were semi-finalists in each of the first two seasons in the Women’s Big Bash League but they have won just eight matches across the three editions since.

That last year’s four victories and seventh-place finish marked an improvement on the two previous years tells its own story.

They have made some big changes as a result, with England captain Heather Knight – their top scorer in four of the last five seasons – departing. Rachel Priest has signed in her place.

Last year’s top wicket-taker and MVP Belinda Vakarewa returns, but Tayla Vlaeminck will miss the tournament through injury, which is another blow. They are rank outsiders.

Hobart Hurricanes Team Squad

Nicola Carey, Maisy Gibson (injured), Corinne Hall, Brooke Hepburn, Erica Kershaw, Hayley Matthews (WI), Sasha Moloney, Rachel Priest (NZ), Chloe Rafferty, Amy Smith, Naomi Stalenberg, Emma Thompson, Chloe Tryon (SA), Tayla Vlaeminck (injured), Belinda Vakarewa

Hobart Hurricanes WBBL 2020 odds

Hobart Hurricanes are the outsiders for this tournament, and can be backed at 12.00 to win the WBBL|06 with Betway and Bet365.

2019 result: semi-finalists
Captain: Amy Satterthwaite
Overseas players: Satterthwaite (NZL), Lea Tahuhu (NZL), Lizelle Lee (RSA)
Other key players: Sophie Molineux, Georgia Wareham, Molly Strano

Melbourne Renegades were semi-finalists last season and are among the dark horses again but perhaps deserve a little more attention.

They have added firepower at the top of the order in Lizelle Lee and Amy Satterthwaite’s return – having been pregnant last season – adds quality and experience too.

Sattherthwaite’s wife, Lea Tahuhu, remains as the franchise’s third overseas player and Australian quality is added by Sophie Molineux, Georgia Wareham and Molly Strano.

The biggest loss, however, will be Jess Duffin – who captained the team last season and scored more than 500 runs – after she pulled out following the birth of her daughter Georgie in June.

Strano was the league’s top wicket-taker last season, however, and if Lee can fire and Satterthwaite get back to her best, there is plenty of quality in this team again.

Melbourne Renegades Team Squad

Makinley Blows, Maitlan Brown, Josie Dooley, Jess Duffin (unavailable), Erin Fazackerley, Ella Hayward, Lizelle Lee (SA), Carly Leeson, Sophie Molineux, Courtney Neale, Amy Satterthwaite (NZ), Molly Strano, Lea Tahuhu (NZ), Georgia Wareham, Courtney Webb

Melbourne Renegades WBBL 2020 odds

Melbourne Renegades can be backed at 9.00 with Bet365 to win the 2020 Women’s Big Bash League and at 8.50 with Bet365.

2019 result: eighth
Captain: Meg Lanning
Overseas players: Mignon du Preez (RSA), Katherine Brunt (ENG), Nat Sciver (ENG)
Other key players: Lanning, Annabel Sutherland, Holly Ferling, Erin Osborne, Elyse Villani

Bottom of the pile last season, Melbourne Stars won just two matches and some heavy recruitment has followed on the back of that.

Meg Lanning is back with the stars and the Australia captain will lead the franchise in the biggest switch, while English pairing Nat Sciver and Katherine Brunt have been signed up too.

Sciver and Lanning both played the first two editions for the Stars, in which they finished fifth both times – Lanning top scoring on both occasions.

They have never been closer to the play-offs than those two seasons, with last year their worst yet, but the recruitment means they are well-fancied to improve this season.

Melbourne Stars Team Squad

Katherine Brunt (Eng), Lucy Cripps, Sophie Day, Bhavi Devchand, Nicole Faltum, Holly Ferling, Tess Flintoff, Georgia Gall, Alana King, Meg Lanning, Erin Osborne, Mignon du Preez, Nat Sciver (Eng), Annabel Sutherland, Elyse Villani

Melbourne Stars WBBL 2020 odds

Melbourne Stars are expected to improve significantly this season and they can be backed at 6.00 with Bet365 to win this year’s WBBL and at 7.00 with Betway.

2019 result: semi-finals
Captain: Sophie Devine
Overseas players: Devine (NZL), Sarah Glenn (ENG), Amy Jones (ENG)
Other key players: Beth Mooney, Nicole Bolton, Heather Graham

Third in the table last season and beaten semi-finalists, the 2017 champions are the favourites this time around after two big signings.

Sophie Devine was in superb form last season, scoring 769 runs and taking plenty of wickets too to be named Player of the Tournament for Adelaide Strikers.

Beth Mooney, who won Player of the Final for the second year running, hit 743 runs – the two hitting 18 half-centuries between them.

While Meg Lanning’s departure will be felt, Devine and Mooney are superb replacements and it is easy to see why the Scorchers are favourites.

Perth Scorchers Team Squad

Megan Banting, Jemma Barsby, Samantha Betts, Nicole Bolton, Mathilda Carmichael, Piepa Cleary, Sophie Devine (NZ), Sarah Glenn (Eng), Heather Graham, Amy Jones (Eng) Emma King, Beth Mooney, Taneale Peschel, Chloe Piparo, Georgia Wyllie

Perth Scorchers WBBL 2020 odds

Perth Scorchers are among the favourites to win the 2020 Women’s Big Bash League and can be backed at 4.00 with Betway and 4.50 with Bet365.

2019 result: fifth
Captain: Ellyse Perry
Overseas players: Marizanne Kapp (RSA), Dane van Niekerk (RSA)
Other key players: Perry, Alyssa Healy, Ashleigh Gardner, Erin Burns, Sarah Aley, Lauren Cheatle

But for Ellyse Perry’s ill-timed injury, Sydney Sixers were marching towards what could have been a third WBBL title.

The two-time former winners were in fine form, including Perry and Alyssa Healy sharing an unbroken 199-run opening partnership in one match, before losing their captain.

Second-favourites behind the Scorchers for this season, they have retained their key players – Perry and Healy, South African stars Marizanne Kapp and wife Dane van Niekerk, and Ashleigh Gardner.

And if all five live up to expectations, potentially making up the top five in the batting order and, with the exception of wicket-keeper Healy, making up the bulk of the bowling attack too, the Sixers can reach the final once again.

Last season was the first year Sydney Sixers had not reached the final, and this is their chance to get back to where they belong.

Sydney Sixers Team Squad

Sarah Aley, Erin Burns, Stella Campbell, Lauren Cheatle, Maddy Darke, Ashleigh Gardner, Lisa Griffith, Alyssa Healy, Jodie Hicks, Emma Hughes, Marizanne Kapp (SA), Ellyse Perry, Angela Reakes, Hayley Silver-Holmes, Dane van Niekerk (SA),

Sydney Sixers WBBL 2020 odds

Sydney Sixers are also among the favourites to win the 2020 Women’s Big Bash League and can be backed at 4.50 with Betway and 4.00 with Bet365.

2019 result: sixth
Captain: Rachael Haynes
Overseas players: Tammy Beaumont (ENG), Shabnim Ismail (RSA), Heather Knight (ENG)
Other key players: Haynes, Sammy-Jo Johnson

Sydney Thunder were sixth last season and have lost some key players since, with Rachel Priest moving to Hobart and Alex Blackwell and Rene Farrell retiring.

They have recruited well, however, with England captain Heather Knight their most eye-catching new arrival, and Tammy Beaumont also making the switch.

Knight has been an integral part of the Hobart Hurricanes squad in the WBBL, and now adds leadership to this Thunder team to replace those key departing players.

At the other end of the scale, teenager Phoebe Litchfield showed she has a bright future with her performances last year. Despite the positives, however, it still looks a big jump for the Thunder to improve on sixth place and get into the play-offs.

Sydney Thunder Team Squad

Sam Bates, Tammy Beaumont (Eng), Hannah Darlington, Rachael Haynes, Saskia Horley, Shabnim Ismail (SA) Sammy-Jo Johnson, Anika Learoyd, Phoebe Litchfield, Heather Knight (Eng), Kate Peterson, Olivia Porter, Lauren Smith, Rachel Trenaman, Tahlia Wilson

Sydney Thunder WBBL 2020 odds

Sydney Thunder are 9.00 to win the 2020 Women’s Big Bash League with Bet365 and 8.50 with Betway.

About WBBL

Brisbane Heat will bid for a record-breaking third consecutive Women’s Big Bash League title when the premier T20 competition in women’s cricket returns down under.

The global situation means the tournament will feature a few changes, including the fact it is to be played entirely in Sydney, but the WBBL’s star players all return for this year’s tournament.

Beth Mooney fired the Heat to victory in each of the last two tournaments – including an unbeaten half-century in the six-wicket win against Adelaide Strikers last year.
