Fantasy XI

WK: Georgia Redmayne

BAT: Laura Wolvaardt, Katie Mack, Daniella Wyatt

AR: Jess Jonassen, Deandra Dottin, Amelia Kerr, Tahlia McGrath 

BOWL: Megan Schutt, Amanda Wellington, Nicola Hancock

C/VC: Amelia Kerr, Deandra Dottin

Differentials: Darcie Brown (17%), Laura Kimmince (36%)

C/VC Differentials: Laura Wolvaardt (2.3%), Jess Jonassen, Amanda Wellington – bowl 2nd (2.8%)

  • Players marked in bold are base team picks. You can rotate the other players for your other combinations.
  • We will go with Wyatt in the BAT section over Grace Harris, Georgia Voll, and Laura Kimmince. Make sure to rotate Voll and Kimmince in place of Wyatt in different combinations as both have decent numbers at this venue.
  • Four standard picks in the AR section; Jonassen becomes an important option as she is bowling second. McGrath is listed to bat at 3 and if she decides to bowl, it would be a big miss to not have her. Rotate her out in a few combinations.
  • For a differential team, pick one of Darcie Brown or Jemma Barsby in place of either Hancock or even McGrath ias the Strikers are bowling first and have a strong top 4 batting unit. The risk with Hancock is that she only bowled 2 overs in the last match but prior to that, she was in good wicket-taking form.

Karen Rolton Oval – Venue Notes

  • Average First Innings Score in WBBL since 2018: 150
  • Bat First vs Bowl First in WBBL matches since 2020: Win batting first – 67%, Win chasing – 33%
  • Wicket distribution by bowl type in WBBL 2022: RAP – 32, LAP – 0, SLO – 4, OS – 13, WS – 16
  • “It has a great grass cover and provides consistent bounce and carry. There’s enough in the pitch to help out the fast bowlers and spinners and batters get great value for shots. The outfield is world-class.” according to the ground manager Trent Kelly, on Pitch Perfect.
  • That matches with the numbers in this WBBL season as both off-spinners and wrist spinners have had considerable success bowling here.
  • Although the batting has not been high scoring at this venue this season and the average first innings score in WBBL 2022 is just 129.
  • Teams that win the toss will look to bat first as those teams batting first have had relatively higher success recently.

Adelaide Strikers – Fantasy Notes

  • Both the opening batters Wolvaardt and Mack have good records at the venue and against the opposition. More so Mack, who has averaged over 50 playing at this venue. Both are differential c/vcs for this match.
  • Amanda Wellington continues to shine with the ball in this tournament. Consider her as one of the top safe c/vc candidates particularly if the Strikers bowl second.
  • Megan Schutt and Darcie Brown have performed well against the Heat in the past. Both are excellent options in this match, more so if the Strikers bowl first.
  • Tahlia McGrath has been in poor form in this tournament. As the skipper, she will be expected to perform in this important match.

Brisbane Heat – Fantasy Notes

  • Grace Harris demoted herself in the Eliminator match and failed dramatically in a match she was expected to score big. Coming to this match against the Strikers, she has not performed well in previous encounters.
  • Georgia Redmayne is a default pick in this match due to the lack of alternative keeping options. She is also a differential c/vc option due to her record against the Strikers and form this season.
  • Georgia Voll is an interesting choice to consider for this match because of her numbers at the venue.
  • Jess Jonassen broke was on fire in the Eliminator match, picking up 4 wickets and covered her lack of wickets at this venue. She only had 3 wickets in the previous 5 matches at the venue.
  • Both Jonassen and Amelia Kerr are the most popular captaincy choices. Kerr also has the potential of providing a lot of points with the bat as well.
