WBW vs AHW Dream11 Team Predictions: Wicket-keepers
Jessica McFayden is the wicket-keeper for the giants Wellington Blaze who has been a regular candidate in the eleven. She has led the forces from the front with 244 runs in 6 games at a superior average of 61 so far. She is important for team’s success.
Sarah Carnachan has been below par in terms of her batting ability and has to do a better job with the willow. She has amassed just 166 runs in 28 innings and has been responsible for 37 catches and 7 stumpings.
WBW vs AHW Dream11 Team Predictions: Batsmen
Rebecca Burns is an explosive top order batsman who was unlucky to fall early without scoring much against Canterbury. She has amassed 916 runs in 45 games in her List A career.
Caitlin King is an important middle order batsman for the side who has solid technique and has come through the ranks. She managed to contribute 38 points with the bat in her last outing. Georgia Plimmer is a young prodigy who is looking to make her mark in the domestic leagues and eventually to the international setup.
Lauren Down who is captaining the Hearts this season has not performed up to the mark. Even though she carries tons of experience, she delivered just 17 points in her last outing.
Katie Perkins was up to the task in the last game as she notched up 63 runs in quick time. She managed to contribute 72 points per game in her last outing. She is currently the 10th highest run-aggregator in this tournament.
Saachi Shahri who played well in the last couple of games needs to carry the momentum for the side to move up in the table. She scored an all-important 65 runs off 67 balls when she went out last time.
Regina Lili’I has been a matter of concern for the team with little contribution from her side so far.
WBW vs AHW Dream11 Team Predictions: All-rounders
Thamsyn Newton has been part of 10 ODIs where she has a strike rate of 34.9 and an economy of 4.29 in 10 innings with the ball. She gave 35 points in her last appearance.
Maneka Singh is a genuine all-rounder who has played close to 22 List A games with contributions coming from all aspects. She is predominantly a bowler having taken 19 scalps at an economy of 3.95.
Bella Armstrong has been on the expensive side with the ball but made sure she covered it by taking important wickets. She managed to pitch in with 58 points in her last outing.
Anna Peterson has provided goods with the bat as well as the ball for the side. She has enormous experience with 279 runs and 27 wickets in her ODI career.
WBW vs AHW Dream11 Team Predictions: Bowlers
Kate Chandler is a budding pacer who has a decent economy and has affected one dismissal at an economy of 7.16 against Canterbury Women. She has pitched in with 25 dream 11 points with the ball.
Jess Kerr bowled a tight spell where she controlled the middle overs by her accuracy that enabled her to take a wicket.
Bethany Molony needs to correct her lines and lengths to decrease her economy. But the experienced bowler managed to contribute 25 fantasy points in her last game.
Xara Jetly bowled eight overs but went for plenty of runs, becoming the weak link in this lineup.
Fran Jonas has been very adaptable to the 50-over format having taken 3 wickets at an important juncture for the side. She has also controlled the run flow in the middle overs extremely well.
Jesse Prasad has been a consistent performer with the ball having taken 2 wickets at a miser economy of 3.17 against Canterbury Magicians. Holly Huddleston brings in international experience into the fray with the veteran pacer involved in 36 ODIs where she has taken 46 wickets.
She has Roz McNeil for company who contributed 50 points thanks to some tight bowling.
