Today’s MS-W vs BH-W Dream11 match top picks
Georgia Redmaybe: Although Redmayne has been in fairly decent form lately, she has not been able to convert her starts into big ones. With Redmayne's recent outings holding her in good stead, she should get the nod over Nicole Faltum in your MS-W vs BH-W Dream11 fantasy team.
Meg Lanning: Meg Lanning has been in dismal form and will be keen to flip the script as soon as possible. Capable of scoring big runs in the top order, Lanning is surely one to watch out for in this game.
Annabel Sutherland: Annabel Sutherland has been the Melbourne Stars' top player in the WBBL this year. She has been batting well at the top of the order and is also decent with the ball, making for a good addition to your MS-W vs BH-W Drea,11 fantasy team.
Poonam Yadav: Poonam Yadav has been quite the addition to the Brisbane Heat's set-up, with the leggie being in good form. With the conditions likely to help her once again, Yadav is bound to be a handful for the Melbourne Stars.
