Match Prediction For Sydney Sixers Women vs Sydney Thunder Women 1st T20 | Womens Big Bash League 2019 | WBBL 2019 | SYSW vs SYTW

ABOUT THE MATCH

The opening game of the Women’s Big Bash League 2019 will see Sydney Sixers take on Sydney Thunder. This derby match will be played on October 18 and will be hosted by the North Sydney Oval in Sydney.

TOSS PREDICTION

Since the wicket is expected to remain good for batting throughout the match, the team that wins the toss here on Friday will probably elect to bat second. Moreover, gauging a safe score on this surface can be difficult.

PITCH AND CONDITIONS

A full forty-over game is on the cards as clear weather has been forecast for Friday. It is likely to be pretty cold during the game with temperatures between 17 and 19 degrees Celsius. Humidity is expected to be around 49-55%.

The pitch has produced some big scores in the few women’s T20 international matches it has hosted. So a good batting track is expected for this tournament opener. 172 is the average first-innings score here in women’s T20I cricket.
