The 21st game of the Women's Big Bash League (WBBL 2022) will take place between Hobart Hurricanes and Sydney Sixers at the Eastern Oval on Saturday.

The Sixers have been enjoying a great campaign, starting with three straight wins. However, a loss in their last game dropped them to fourth in the standings. They lost to Adelaide Strikers in a close game on Friday, falling short by just three runs.

Erin Burns was the star of the show, scoring 71 off 38. However, the knock went in vain, as the Strikers bowlers did their part. For the Sixers, Sophie Ecclestone leads the charts with two wickets, conceding only 15 runs.

Meanwhile, Hobart got a no result against Perth Scorchers on Sunday. However, they managed pretty well against Sydney Thunder on Tuesday at the Blacktown ISP Oval. Captain Lizelle Lee's knock of 41 off 29, followed by Ruth Johnston's 27 off 26, helped them score 144.

Later, an impressive show from their bowlers restricted the Thunder to only 95, with Heather Graham (2-13), Hayley Jensen (2-13) and Maisy Gibson (2-15) among the wickets.
