ST-W vs HB-W Dream11 Match Preview
Syndey Thunder women finished in 7th position in the last edition with only 4 wins in 10 games. They failed to perform as a team and will look to bounce back strongly this season. They have many good players in their squad - Rachael Haynes, Chloe Tryon, Sammy Jo-Johnson, Belinda Vakarewa, Lea Tahuhu and Tammy Beaumont alongside youngsters like Phoebe Litchfield and Tahlia Wilson. Rachael Haynes’s return will strengthen their side. They are looking very balanced as a team but their only concern will be some of their young and experienced players batting out of position. Overall, they have a good squad and will look to start off their campaign with a win.
