Melbourne Stars are set to face Hobart Hurricanes in the upcoming game of Women’s Big Bash League 2021. Melbourne Stars lost their opening game against Sydney Sixes after the match was cut short to 11 overs. Their opponents too haven’t had a good start yet, facing defeats in both their games. Given that both teams are yet to register a win in the tournament, they’ll aim to capitalise on the game in order to take an early lead in WBBL 2021.
Melbourne Stars will aim to make a comeback, having lost their opening game against Sydney Sixers. Skipper Meg Lanning and Elyse Villani are top batting pick from the side with the former being a dependable captain choice. Additionally, all-rounder, Annabel Sutherland can also be a smart pick from the team. Coming to Hobart Hurricanes, their captain Rachel Priest should be a must-have in one’s fantasy team. Given that she’s also the wicketkeeper for the side, it can add up to the fantasy points, making her an excellent captain choice. Besides, Nicola Carey and Naomi Stalenberg are other dependable picks from the side. Lastly, Molly Strano and Belinda Vakarewa’s can fetch some fantasy points from the bowling end.
