Sydney Thunder Women take on Hobart Hurricanes Women on October 31 at the Aurora Stadium, Launceston.
The Sydney Thunder Women are in all sorts of trouble, having won only one of their six games in the tournament so far. Big guns Smriti Mandhana and Sammy-jo Johnson have so far failed to fire in the tournament.
The bowlers have done their job more often than not. However, their batters have let them down. A more clinical performance with the bat could see them end up on the winning side against a quality side in the form of the Hobart Hurricanes.
The Hobart Hurricanes Women, much like their counterparts, have had a rather disappointing run in the tournament so far, having won only two of their seven games.
They have been found guilty of being too reliant on the likes of Mignon Du Preez and Racheal Priest. The Hurricanes have a quality bowling attack that will be raring to go against the Sydney Thunder outfit.

The presence of big-hitter Smriti Mandhana and delicate players like Tahlia Wilson and Phoebe Litchfield at the top of the order make them a rather intimidating side in the powerplay overs.
