Perth Scorchers Women vs. ADELAIDE STRIKERS WOMEN Prediction and Betting Tips

Match 54 of the ongoing Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL 2020) features Adelaide Strikers Women taking on the Perth Scorchers Women at the North Sydney Oval in Sydney on Sunday. The business is about to get real; it is the last day of the league stage matches.

The last time these two teams faced each other earlier this season, the match was washed out with rain. Even with the reduction of the match to 10 overs per side, the rains spoiled the sport. Our Women’s BBL Match Prediction predicts that with the momentum Perth Scorchers are in, they will in this game on 22nd November, crushing playoff hopes for Adelaide Strikers.

Team Preview

While the Strikers come into this game on the back of a loss to the Sydney Thunder on Saturday, the Scorchers are high with a 10-wicket victory over bruising Hobart Hurricanes on Saturday. Scorchers have a resourceful unit with their skipper and Sophie Devine and star player Beth Mooney firing all over. With the support of Nicole Bolton and Heather Graham having done well of late, they come out as a confident team. The Scorchers will be desperate for the win here as they attempt to solidify their position in the top four, and they will be sanguine.

Adelaide Strikers, too, are well on course for a playoff finish, with five wins in eleven games. But their last defeat against Sydney Thunder will be anguishing. Despite losing Suzie Bates to a shoulder injury, the Strikers have charged well under the leadership of Megan Schutt, who has led by example with the ball in hand. With their bunch of all-rounders coming up with considerable contributions as well, the Strikers look good for another win. But they need to step up as there are no more chances remaining.

Nonetheless, with two valuable points up for grabs, we should be in for another whacking WBBL game, with both sides looking to go all out for a win on Sunday.

The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:

The North Sydney Ground has seen its fair share of blast over the last few WBBL games, with scores of over 150 runs being notched up with relative ease. There isn’t likely to be much help on the plate for bowlers, although the pace variation could be key for both teams on this wicket.

The batters will need to keep an eye out for variable bounce, paving the way for an even contest between bat and ball. The batters will need to spend their time in the middle before going big, and wickets in hand could be critical towards the backend of the innings. 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:

  • Sophie Devine and Beth Mooney of the Perth Scorchers Women and Megan Schutt and Laura Wolvaardt of the Adelaide Strikers Women will be key players for this match.
