Womens Big Bash, 2018 | Adelaide Strikers vs Sydney Thunders, Match 17 Preview | AS-W vs ST-W Who Will Win
The 17th match of 2-18 WBBL will see the encore of Adelaide Strikers vs Sydney Thunders as the latter look to continue with the winning momentum they’ve achieved on Saturday.
An imperious bowling effort spearheaded Syndey Thunders win over the Strikers in the last game. Batting first, the Strikers could not any support to skipper Suzie Bates whatsoever. That Bates  scored 59 per cent of her sides total highlights the lack of support for the White Ferns’ legend as none of the batters barring the No.10 Alex Price  could get into double figures against the likes of Taylor [3-26], Rene Farrell [3-12] and Maisy Gibson [3-23].
Chasing 133, Rachael Priest  led the run-chase for the Thunder after they had lost Stefanie Taylor cheaply for a duck, with a 46-ball-58 along with Harmanpreet Kaur, who scored a 22-ball-33 to steer their side in 17.3 overs.
