Match Preview

Sydney Thunder Women vs Sydney Sixers Women: The 27th fixture of the Womens Big Bash League 2022 will be played between Sydney Thunder Women and Sydney Sixers Women. The Sydney derby will be played at Blacktown International Sportspark on Wednesday, 2nd November 2022.

Sydney Thunder Women are in deep trouble as they are placed in the bottom two on the points table. Having played 7 games, they could win only one. A win here is critical to remaining in the semi-final race. Their last fixture against the Melbourne Stars was washed away owing to rain disruptions. 

Meanwhile, Sydney Sixers are the table-toppers of this tournament. They have won 5 out of the 6 games played until now. The openers shined in the previous game against the Renegades. The duo of Alyssa Healy and Suzie Bates put together an opening stand of 151 runs. That partnership helped the Sixers put on a target of 188. Lauren Cheatle and Maitlan Brown chipped in with 3 wickets each, and the Renegades fell short of 37 runs at the end of 20 overs.
