Hobart Hurricanes Women vs. Perth Scorchers Women Prediction and Betting Tips

Women BBL 2020 Match 51: HBHW vs. PRSW – Sat, 21st November

Women BBL 2020 Match Prediction

The 51st Match of the ongoing Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL 2020) has the Hobart Hurricanes Women taking on the Perth Scorchers Women at North Sydney Oval in Sydney. It is the third match of the quadruple header Saturday.

The last time these two teams met to play against each other this season, rain played its game. The match was abandoned without a ball being balled. Both the teams settled with one point each. They will wish to battle it out in this game with no forecast of rain. Our Women’s BBL Match Prediction predicts that PRSW will win this match on the 21st and keep their playoff hopes alive.

Team Preview

With five wins and 12 points on the board for Perth Scorchers Women, a win is a must on the cards if they want to fancy their chances of playoffs. Three teams are sitting at 12 points, and with only two more matches remaining for every team, Perth Scorchers will be looking to win early and secure their position in the top four.

They come across Beth Mooney, who will be leading the Scorchers in the absence of Sophie Devine. Although they are the underdogs for this game, the Scorchers have a talented unit with Heather Graham, and Nicole Bolton has done well of late.

However, the same cannot be said about the Hobart Hurricanes, who have been woeful in the 2020 season of the WBBL. Despite taking a double super over win against the Sydney Sixers, the Hurricanes are languishing at the bottom of the table with three wins in ten games. They might not be eligible to get into the top four spots, but they sure can spoil the party for others. With nothing to lose on the cards, Hurricanes will be looking to play strong.

Their batting unit has not performed as a unit as the likes of Rachel Priest and Chloe Tryon have been underwhelming. While the Hurricanes do enter this WBBL game as the longshots, they have a decent batting squad, but their lack of bowling depth could be a cause of concern against the Scorchers.

The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:

The pitch at North Sydney Oval has slowed down considerably compared to what it was at the beginning of the season. With this being the first WBBL game of the day at this venue, both teams would ideally want to bat first and make fair use of the batting conditions. While the pacers should get some movement off the surface, the spinners could be vital in the middle overs. The batters will need to bide their time before going big, with wickets in hand likely to be crucial at the innings’ back end. Our Women’s BBL Match Prediction predicts that teams will opt to the ball first on winning the toss. Therefore, the toss will be critical.

Key Players to watch:

  • Captain Beth Mooney and Heather Graham of the Perth Scorchers Women and Rachel Priest and Chloe Tryon of the Hobart Hurricanes Women will be key players for this match.
