Sydney Sixers have a talented bunch of players, but haven’t been upto their strengths lately. They easily lost the last game, without even putting a fight. Perry and Bolton helped put a good looking total, but that wasn’t enough for their opposition and they lost the game by 7 wickets. The top picks for this game will be Shafali Verma and Ellyse Perry.
The top order batter has failed to create an impact in this tournament, but is an important player for the team, with a proven track record of providing good start and accelerating in the middle overs as well. In 4 matches of the tournament, Shafali Verma has amassed 65 runs at an average of 16.25, but is expected to come out of bad form in this fixture.
The best pick for this game has surprisingly did better with the bat than the ball and is the backbone of the middle order. In the last fixture, she scored 50 runs and helped the team to post a respectable total on the board. In 4 matches, Perry has smashed 124 runs at an average of 41.33 and also has 2 wickets at a fine average of 24.5.
X-factor: The spinner Radha Yadav has been impressive and is likely to be continuing her good form.
Player to Watch: The middle order batter and an all rounder Ashleigh Gardener is expected to do well in this fixture.
