Melbourne Renegades Women vs Sydney Sixers Women

  1. Current Performance: Sydney Sixers Women is currently placed at the third position of the table with 1 win from their three matches as 2 of their matches got abandoned. They are one of the best teams of this tournament with lots of international stars in their ranks. Their batting looks enviable with the likes of Alyssa Healy, Ellyse Perry, Ashleigh Gardner, Erin Burns, Marizanne Kapp & Dane van Niekerk. If they are able to perform even 80 percent of their team strength, it will be hard to beat them.

Melbourne Renegades Women is currently placed in the 7th position of the points table with no wins from their three matches. Two of their matches also got abandoned. Their batting department lacks the firepower needed in a t20 game. Barring Lizelle Lee, none of their batters scores at a good strike. She too is a hit or miss kind of player. Overall their batting department looks weak on paper.Their bowling department is decent. If they are to make a mark in this tournament, they will need to play cricket above their potential.

  1. Weather: The weather is not good for this year’s WBBL till now in Sydney. Out of the 12 scheduled matches only 5 matches had results. Other matches were all abandoned. If the weather remains the same, playing fantasy in these matches will be risky.

Important Observations: In the first few matches this year, the pitch looked good for batting. There were not much help for the spinners. However as more matches will be played on the same strip, it may slow down. Also the pitch is under cover for all the rain that is happening. It may provide some early help for the pacers.

  1. Predicted 11 & Team Analysis with stats:

Melbourne Renegades Women (Playing XI): Lizelle Lee, Sophie Molineux, Erin Fazackerley, Amy Satterthwaite(c), Courtney Webb, Georgia Wareham, Josephine Dooley(w), Maitlan Brown, Carly Leeson, Molly Strano, Courtney Neale

Probable batting order wise & 2019 WBBL stats

Lizelle Lee [RHB] – 475 runs (14m)

Sophie Molineux [LHB+LAO]- 101 runs & 8 wk (10m)

Erin Fazackerley [RHB + RAM]- 243 runs (13m)

Amy Satterthwaite(c) [LHB+RAM]- 325 runs (15m) [2018 record]

Courtney Webb [RHB]- 217 runs (12m)

Georgia Wareham [RHB+ leg spin]– 94runs & 7 wickets (15m)

Josephine Dooley (wk) - 134 runs (10m)

Maitlan Brown [RHB+RAM]- 41 runs & 16 wk (15m)

Carly Leeson [RHB+RAM]- 24 runs & 3 wk (3m)

Molly Strano [off-spin]- 24 wk (15m)

Courtney Neale [RHB+RAM]- 1wk (2m) [overall record]

Team Analysis

Decent Openers: Lizelle Lee & Sophie Molineux will open the batting for the Renegades Women. Lee had a good season last year & will look to do the same for her side this year. She is a good hitter of the cricket ball on her day but consistency is missing from her game. Sophie Molineux is a good all-round cricketer who is good with both bat & ball. She needs to step up her game with the bat if her side is to go anywhere near the qualification spot.

Fragile Middle & lower-middle order: Erin Fazackerley, Amy Satterthwaite, Courtney Webb, Georgia Wareham, Josephine Dooley & Maitlan Brown form the middle order of the Renegades women side. Erin Fazackerley is tall batter & good hitter but has no consistency in her game. Amy Satterthwaite is a good batsman from New Zealand. Her current form is also good. But she lacks the hitting capacity of t20. All the other options in their middle order are young & fragile.

Spin Department: Sophie Molineux, Georgia Wareham & Molly Strano form the spin department of their side. All of them are very good bowlers. Molly Strano is the highest wicket taker of WBBL till now. Wareham bowls decent leg spin & Molineux’s left arm orthodox bowling is more than handy.

Pacers: Courtney Neale, Maitlan Brown & Carly Leeson form the pace department.  Courtney Neale & Maitlan Brown have good pace in their bowling but they will have to provide early breakthroughs for their team. Carly Lesson does not have much pace & bowls stump to stump line.


Sydney Sixers Women (Playing XI): Alyssa Healy (wk), Ellyse Perry (c), Ashleigh Gardner, Erin Burns, Marizanne Kapp, Dane van Niekerk, Angela Reakes, Hayley Silver-holmes, Lisa Griffith, Jodie Hicks, Stella Campbell

Probable batting order wise & 2019 WBBL stats

Alyssa Healy [RHB+wk]- 383runs (14m)

Ellyse Perry (c)  [RHB+ RAM]– 469 runs+ 4wk (9m)

Ashleigh Gardner [RHB+ off- spin]– 275 runs + 11wk (13m)

Erin Burns [RHB + off-spin]– 175runs + 8wk (13m)

Marizanne Kapp [RHB+ RAM]– 232 runs + 15wk (14m)

Dane van Niekerk [RHB+ leg spin]– 125 runs + 9wk (11m)

Angela Reakes[RHB] - 221 runs (14m) [2018 record]

Hayley Silver-holmes [RAM]- 6wk (12m)

Lisa Griffith [RAM]– 2wk

Jodie Hicks [RHB] – 5runs (3m)

Stella Campbell [RAM]- 5wk (11m)

Team Analysis

Formidable Batting Order: In Alyssa Healy & Ellyse Perry, Sydney Sixers Women has one of the best opening combinations of the tournament. Ashleigh Gardner, Erin Burns, Marizanne Kapp & Dane van Niekerk will form the middle order of the Sixers’ side & all of them are internationally acclaimed players.

Spin Options: Ashleigh Gardner, Dane van Niekerk & Erin Burns will form the spin department of the team. Niekerk is the South-African captain & a quality leg-spinner. Both Gardner & Erin Burns will bowl some off-spin whenever needed.

Pace Battery: Ellyse Perry & Marizanne Kapp opens the bowling for their side & both are very good right-arm fast bowlers. Lisa Griffith & Stella Campbell will come as 1st change bowlers. While Lisa Griffith has quality experience, Stella Campbell is a very good youngster with good pace. Hayley Silver-holmes bowls in the middle overs & sometimes at the death with all her variations.


  1. My Dream 11 Team:

Wicket-Keepers: A.Healy; L.Lee

Batsmen: A.Gardner; C.Webb; A.Satterwaite

All-Rounders: M.Kapp; E.Perry (my captain); S.Molineux (my vice-captain)

Bowlers: S.Campbell; L.Griffith; M.Brown/ G.Wareham

  1. Possible C/Vc Options:

Small League Options: E.Perry & S. Molineux will be the safest choices for C/VC in this game.

Grand League Options: A.Healy, A. Gardner, M.Kapp, L.Lee & Niekerk all will be good for C/VC in the grand leagues.

Bowling Section: S.Molineux, M.Kapp & E.Perry are automatic choices. Pick three between S.Campbell, L.Griffith, G.Wareham & M.Brown. D.Van.Niekerk & M.Strano have good head to head record but their credits are too high. D.Van.Niekerk is good with the bat too. If you can manage credits, do try them.
