Hobart Hurricanes weren’t good in the last game earlier today and were restricted to 132-8, while batting first. They weren’t any good too with the ball and were struggling to defend a decent total, which almost went to the last over. Nicola Carey was brilliant with her spell, and she tried her best. The top picks are Molly Strano and Rachel Priest.
The bowler has a good experience in the T20 cricket, and was also the part of the T20 World Cup team in Australia. She is often underrated with her talent, but has the potential to be one of the greats for the Australia team. Along with the ball, she has been impressive with her batting performances. In the last fixture, she scored a quickfire 33 to help the team in posting a respectable total on the board.
Although the captain of the Hobart Hurricanes team could not open her account in the last fixture, she still has the capability to fight back harder to secure crucial victory for the team. Her century helped the team to clinch only victory in the tournament. In 5 matches, she has scored 143 runs at an average of 35.75
X-factor: The middle order batsman Richa Ghosh is a vital contributor to the team in pressure situations.
Player to Watch: The youngster Ruth Johnston was the top scorer for the team in the last fixture and will look to keep the same form.
