The Women's Big Bash League is about to get underway even as COVID-19 restrictions still bring large parts of Australia to a standstill. The WBBL has emerged as the best women's cricket tournament and you will find the best players from around the world taking part.
The first match of WBBL 2021-22 is going to be played between the Sydney Sixers Women and the Melbourne Stars Women. The Sydney Sixers are the most dominant outfit in the history of the tournament while the Stars have traditionally struggled to compete effectively.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Sydney Sixers Women vs Melbourne Stars
We don't think there is a team that is so heavily loaded in the batting department as the Sydney Sixers are. They have Ellyse Perry, Ash Gardner, Alyssa Healy, Nicole Bolton, and now Shafali Verma in their lineup. There is more power and depth here than most teams.
The bowling department is a bit thin when you compare the Sydney Sixers to some of their previous squads. Marizanne Kapp and Dane van Niekerk are not a part of the squad and so the bulk of the bowling responsibilities will fall on Ellyse Perry and an inexperienced set of youngsters.
Alyssa Healy, Shafali Verma, Ashleigh Gardner, Ellyse Perry, Nicole Bolton, Angela Reakes, Radha Yadav, Maitlan Brown, Claire Moore, Stella Campbell, Emma Hughes.
The Melbourne Stars women have two of the leading Australian players in their lineup. Meg Lanning and Elyse Villani are going to be the ones that lead the challenge for the Melbourne Stars in this edition of the WBBL. The question is going to be whether they are able to score runs in every match because the lineup around them seems to be a bit thin.
The bowling is also a bit underwhelming and could struggle against the stronger batting lineups in WBBL 2021-22. Tess Flintoff and Annabel Sutherland are the two names that you can watch out for in this aspect.
Meg Lanning, Maia Bouchier, Kim Garth, Sophie Day, Maddy Darke, Nicole Faltum, Tess Flintoff, Rhys McKenna, Elyse Villani, Annabel Sutherland, Anna Lanning.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first.

The conditions at the Bellerive Oval are generally good for batting. The pitch has a nice amount of bounce and carry that the batters can use to their advantage. The outfield is also going to be very quick.
We are going to bet on the Sydney Sixers to win this match. They have a stronger batting lineup by far and while their bowling is not that strong, we don't think the Melbourne Stars have the batting to be able to take advantage of that.
