Hobart Hurricanes Women will square off against Adelaide Strikers Women in the 43rd match of the Women’s Big Bash League 2021. Harrup Park in Mackay will host this exciting encounter.
Hobart Hurricanes Women are struggling a bit in the competition. They have managed to win only three games out of 11 and have seven points to their name.
Hobart lost to the Perth Scorchers in their last game. It was a dismal performance from their batters as they were bundled out for 96 in their 20 overs. The bowlers tried their level best and even picked up five wickets but there weren’t enough runs to defend as the Scorchers chased down the total in the 16th over. The Hurricanes need to get back to winning ways to stay in contention for the semi-finals.
Adelaide Strikers Women, on the other hand, are placed fifth in the points table. They have won four and lost as many games, with nine points under their belt.
Adelaide defeated the Sydney Sixers in their previous game. The bowlers did a fine job of restricting the Sixers to 142 in the first innings. On the back of a fifty from Katie Mack and an unbeaten 40 from skipper Tahlia McGrath, the Strikers chased down the total with seven balls to spare. They will be eager to carry forward the winning momentum.
