The surface at the Latrobe Recreation Ground is a balanced one, however, the new ball bowlers are expected to get some initial movement. The batters need to be cautious early on and can score freely once they are well set. Batting is expected to be easier in the second innings and therefore, the captain winning the toss is likely to bowl first.

Probable Best Performers from the MS-W vs HH-W
Probable best batter: Alice Capsey
Alice Caspey played a classy knock to take her side home in the previous game with an unbeaten 80 against the same opponent and her form will be crucial to the plans of Melbourne Stars Women. The 18-year-old has scored the second-most runs for Melbourne Stars this season after Annabel Sutherland and will be looking to add some more to her tally.
Probable best bowler: Sasha Moloney
Sasha Moloney went for a few in her four overs in the previous game but she managed to keep her wicket-taking form intact. With two four wicket-hauls in the last five games, Moloney is a game-changer with the ball and has taken 16 wickets in 11 games in this edition so far. The off-spinner will fancy her chances against Hobart Hurricanes’ batters.
