Women's Big Bash League 2022 Match 48 by 11ic

During the 48th match of the Women's Big Bash League 2022, the Hobart Hurricanes Women will face the Melbourne Stars Women. It was a close-fought contest in the 46th match between Melbourne Stars Women and Hobart Hurricanes. With Nicola Carey top-scoring with 31, the Hurricanes Women batted first and posted 130 runs. During her four overs as a Stars Women bowler, Annabel Sutherland finished with figures of 3/18 in her four overs, resulting in eight wickets taken for the team in total. With only five balls left in the innings, Alice Capsey scored 80 off 52 balls to help her side reach the final target of 132, scoring 80 off 52 balls to help her side cross the finish line in style. It was a frustrating experience for the Hurricanes Women who kept losing wickets at regular intervals, but Capsey stood tall against them and took her side to victory. The Hurricanes Women failed to defend the total as Molly Strano and Carey took three and two wickets, respectively. It promises to be another exciting match in the reverse fixture. This will be the second time that the Stars Women have defeated the Hurricanes Women, and they will be eager to repeat their performance. In revenge for last week's loss, the Hurricanes will be eager to avenge themselves.

Melbourne Stars Women vs Hobart Hurricanes Women

The Hobart Hurricanes Women came out of the Melbourne Stars Women match with a 38-run victory and got back to winning ways. In addition to claiming a comprehensive victory, Amy Smith also posted a competitive total of 152 points. After a strong performance against the same opponent yesterdayin previous match, the Stars would have believed that they had a chance. In the powerplay, Alice Capsey continued where she had left off and tore into the bowlers who had played against her. The precocious teenager was looking in ominous touch as the Stars racked up 35 in the four-over powerplay in the third period as she used her feet and got creative with the reverse hit. It was a crawl through the middle-overs as the Hurricanes orchestrated a spin choke with Lauren Winfield-Hill going nowhere at the other end.

With every bowling change Elyse Villani made, Maisy Gibson and Smith tightened the leash. In the end, the Stars took double the time to double their powerplay score. The situation became worse once Capsey departed due to the need to move forward. After that, there was no further progress in the chase. There is no doubt that Winfield-Hill's struggles were short lived, and that once Annabel Sutherland holed out, it was the final nail in the coffin for Winfield-Hill's struggles to continue. The equation was too mountainous for Faltum alone to solve, and the Stars have been beaten again, seriously jeopardizing their chances of qualifying for knockouts.

In third place, the Hurricanes are two points clear of both the Strikers and the Scorchers. In the top half of the table, it's getting extremely tight, and the Hobart side have picked up a couple of crucial points. As far as their remaining two games are concerned, they are looking for a chance to play well.
