The Hobart Hurricanes and the Sydney Thunder will be playing against each other as the WBBL 05 matches come thick and fast. Both the sides have had a decent tournament so far but with some contrasting recent results.
The Hobart Hurricanes won their opening two matches and have a very good net run-rate but have since lost their next two matches. Sydney Thunder started the tournament with a big defeat but has since bounced back strongly and has won its next three matches in a row.
With teams quite closely matched to each other, no team can afford to take it easy as every single point may count in the end.
Hobart Hurricanes Women vs Sydney Thunder Women WBBL 05 is going to be played at the West Park Oval, Burnie on the 2nd of November 2019.
Two wins in two matches and then two very close losses would have left the Hobart Hurricanes feeling a bit frustrated. The side has played very well so far and could easily have had four wins out of four but it let winning positions go to waste in its previous two matches.
The Hobart Hurricanes cannot afford to make such mistakes against Sydney Thunder which has been one of the form sides of the tournament so far.
Nicola Carey and Heather Knight have been the two best batters for the Hobart Hurricanes women so far. With Fran Wilson and Chloe Tyron in the middle-order as well, the Hurricanes have a decent middle order. The opening pair of Erin Fazackerley and Stefanie Daffara need to do a bit better and try to give its middle order a base to build on.
Too many early wickets in the matches played so far have meant that the Hobart Hurricanes batting is often re-building rather than trying to get the most runs it possibly can.
Both Heather Knight and Nicola Carey feature in the bowling lineup of the Hobart Hurricanes as well. These two are important members of the bowling unit which also features Tayla Vlaeminck and Maisy Gibson (the current highest wicket-taker of WBBL 05).
The talent is there in both the departments and it is just a question of keeping their heads in the crunch moments.

Sydney Thunder had a very well-balanced side coming into WBBL 05 and that is paying dividends now. Alex Blackwell is leading the batting for Sydney Thunder and is currently the second-highest run-getter in the entire tournament. Similarly, Shabnim Ismail is in the race to be the top wicket-taker of the tournament with five scalps to her name already.
There are no obvious weaknesses in Sydney Thunder and the number of match-winners in the side makes it very dangerous.
We think it is just a matter of time before Rachel Priest plays one of her signature aggressive innings which will decimate the opposition while Rachael Haynes has already shown some very good form in this tournament already.
Nida Dar is capable of playing a flyer down the order or picking up wickets during crucial intervals.
With the emergence of Phoebe Litchfield, the Sydney Thunder batting order is definitely stronger than the Hobart Hurricanes.
Samantha Bates, Lisa Griffith, Hannah Darlington, Nida Dar, and Shabnim Ismail make for a very strong bowling attack as well.
All three of Sydney Thunder’s wins have come chasing and so it may be interesting to see how the side reacts if it has to bat first and get a big total on the board.

There are chances of some scattered showers in Burnie, Tasmania on match day but hopefully, they will not be around during the time that match is scheduled to take place. The pitch is a bit of an unknown but local reports suggest that it will be slow, low, and offer some help for the spinners.
The outfield is pretty small and will allow plenty of boundaries to be hit never the less.
Both teams are dangerous and in good form which makes this contest an exciting one. While the Hobart Hurricanes have some dangerous players to take the fight to Sydney Thunder, a better batting unit and some excellent bowlers to lead the attack give the edge to the visitors.
