Womens Big Bash, 2018 | Hobart Hurricanes Women vs Sydney Thunder Women, Match 29 Preview | HB-W vs ST-W Who Will Win
The 29th match of the 2018 WBBL will see Hobart Hurricanes square off against Sydney Thunder in what is a crucial encounter for the former. With just a solitary win in seven matches, the Hurricanes find themselves languishing at the bottom of the pile while their opponents in Sydney Thunder have been in red-hot form this season with five wins in six matches.
The last encounter between these two sides ended in a six-wicket win for Thunder after they successfully chased down 154 thanks to steady contributions from their batting unit with Naomi Stalenberg leading the way with a 39-ball-55 and Rachael Preist with a whirlwind 21-ball-40.
The failure of the lower-middle order was the chief nemesis for the Hurricanes as they lost 6-25 in the last five overs after their top-order had given their side an ideal platform to build on. With just a solitary win in seven games, the Hurricanes need to sort out their batting if they are to salvage their dwindling campaign.
