SYTW vs SYDW Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Nov 15, 2019
The WBBL league table is consolidating as the teams start to reach an equal number of matches played. The Sydney Sixers are now even on points with the top-2 teams but have a game in hand. That means that a victory against Sydney thunder in this match will help the Sydney Sixers move to the top of the table by a clear margin.
Sydney Thunder, unfortunately, has been moving in the opposite direction. Some very good performances to start WBBL 05 have been followed by a string of losses and they now find themselves out of the top-4.
Another loss here leaves them vulnerable to slipping down further and could make qualification difficult.

SYTW vs SYDW Team Previews
Sydney Thunder Women
Ellyse Perry struck an unbeaten 70 in the previous game and ensured that the Sydney Sixers reached a winning total. She now has 351 runs from 7 innings and is second the list of the top run-scorers in WBBL 2019.
It is really a testament to the kind of batting performances that we have seen this season that Ellyse Perry is not the stand-out player even after averaging 117 with a strike rate of 116.23.
Perry may the best player on the Sydney Sixers side but she is certainly not the only good player. Alyssa Healy has played a couple of great innings and just needs to be a bit more consistent moving forward. Ashleigh Gardner and Erin Burns are also very well suited to playing their roles without any trouble in the batting order.
Sydney Sixers have been dominant but they have not been at their best and that is something that should worry every other team in the WBBL.
Marizanne Kapp has been the leader of the bowling group with some very good support from Ellyse Perry, Dane van Niekerk, Sarah Aley, and Erin Burns.
There is a wealth of all-round talent in the side which allows the bowling attack to shift strategies as dictated by the conditions and the form of the bowlers on the day.

Sydney Sixers Women
Two back to back matches against the Perth Scorchers have hit Sydney Thunder hard and the pressure is on them now to try and claw their way back up the table. To be clear, they are far from being out of the running for a qualification spot. Even if they lose this game, they are only going to be a couple of wins away from moving back up the table but the margin of error reduces as the end of the group stage approaches.
The reason behind the two recent defeats is nothing glaring but the fact that they were outplayed by a better side. Sydney thunder did reasonably well in all aspects of the game but did not get that one outstanding effort to help them over the line.
Playing against the Sydney Sixers is not going to be easy. This is the same side that dismantled it during the opening match of this season’s WBBL. The pressure is going to be on the Thunder bowling attack to get the early wickets and make inroads into the strong Sixers lineup.
Shabnim Ismail, Samantha Bates, and Rene Farell will be the bowlers likely to start proceedings with Nida dar, Hannah Darlington, and others following up as needed. We would not mind a change in strategy and maybe throwing the ball to Dar upfront to see if she can buy a wicket as well.
Shabnim Ismail is the best bowler in this group and also has plenty of international experience on her side. She can rip through batting sides or be very expensive, though.
Sydney Thunder also has a strong batting lineup with players like Rachael Priest, Naomi Stalenburg, Alex Blackwell, Nida Dar, and Tahlia Wilson. There is a lot of depth in the side to both set and chase down big targets.
The trick, as we mentioned, is going to be for one of these batters to convert their start into a big score.

There is nothing much to stop the batters from scoring freely and getting a big target under their belts. A score of around 150 should be seen as par.
