In Jemma Barsby (Scorchers), Nell Bryson-Smith, Meagan Dixon, Dane van Niekerk
Out Suzie Bates, Ellen Falconer (Renegades), Alex Price, Stafanie Taylor
It's a generally steady crew according to a neighborhood perspective for Strikers. Darcie Brown's height to a Cricket Australia contract implies she is presently one of the club's five marquee names. The withdrawal of Suzie Bates because of worries about getting a quarantine space on return to New Zealand has seen the marking of Dane van Niekerk after she left Sixers; with both bat and ball that ought to be an important expansion. Brown, Megan Schutt, Tahlia McGrath and legspinner Amanda-Jade Wellington make a very even assault with a lot of wicket-takers. On the off chance that they can put runs on the board they ought to be a significant challenger.
Player to watch
Recollect that parried get that became famous online- It was one of the snapshots of the competition last year. Tahlia McGrath was remarkable during the multi-design series against India with bat and ball. Notwithstanding, last season's WBBL from a run-scoring point of view was disappointing with 227 runs at 16.21 and a strike-pace of 82.24 opening the innings. Where she is utilized this season stays not yet clear, however in case it's at the top again more effect will be required in the Powerplay.

In Anneke Bosch, Zoe Cooke, Ellie Johnston, Poonam Yadav
Out Maddy Green, Amelia Kerr, Delissa Kimmince (retired), Lilly Mills (Scorchers)
The late enlistment of legspinner Poonam Yadav could be a crucial piece of Heat's jigsaw after they fell at the semi-last stage last season in their bid for a full go-around of title. They were far out at the halfway place of the mission yet flooded into the knockout stages. The top request will again look to Georgia Redmayne however it is further down where they have a genuine X-factor in the completing abilities of Laura Kimmince who had an eye-watering strike-pace of 205.81 last season. They will likewise expect further improvement from young person Georgia Voll. With the ball, South Africa allrounders Anneke Bosch and Nadine de Klerk could be entrusted will filling the job of the resigned Delissa Kimmince.
Player to watch
As referenced above, Laura Kimmince carries a measurement to Heat's batting that couple of different groups can coordinate in their center request. Regardless of confronting only 86 balls last season she completed third on the sixes diagram with 12 and her strike-rate was way out on top as the main hitter more than 200. With 37 off 17 balls in the semi-last she was nearly bringing Heat into the last before she was bowled endeavoring a switch it as a feature of a lower-request breakdown.
Captain: Rachel Priest
Coach: Salliann Beams
Last season 8th

Tropical storms have taken some large actions in the slow time of year in the wake of completing keep going for the third time in four seasons. They have not made the WBBL finals beginning around 2016-17 and are wanting to change their fortunes on the rear of some huge name initiates. They have tricked the accomplished Mignon du Preez from Stars and the thrilling expansion of Richa Ghosh implies the batting line-up will have an incredible equilibrium between youth and experience, just as influence and contact. They had additionally added Rachel Trenaman to the top request, however she will miss the whole season subsequent to cracking her ACL. The bowling has likewise gotten an enormous lift with untouched driving WBBL wicket-taker Molly Strano attracted south from her dearest Melbourne Renegades. She carries such a lot of involvement and adaptability to the side with her capacity to bowl in the powerplay and in the center overs. Typhoons at last have a balanced assault if Tayla Vlaeminck and Maisy Gibson can remain fit, with Vlaeminck turning into a strike weapon around the dependable Strano, Belinda Vakarewa, and Nicola Carey.
Player to observe
Tayla Vlaeminck has played 19 WBBL matches in her vocation with WBBL05 demonstrating her main full season because of a heap of wounds. She didn't play at all last season and has been breast fed through the new Australia-India series, just playing during the T20Is because of an Achilles erupt during her readiness. She is apparently the quickest bowler on the planet and strikes dread into worldwide hitters with her speed, ricochet, and off-kilter activity. Her worth at homegrown level is much more prominent and she could have a significant effect in this competition for the Hurricanes in the event that she can remain fit. Be that as it may, they should utilize her sensibly as playing every one of the 14 games in addition to finals may be a lot to ask given the itinerary in the second 50% of the competition.
Captain: Sophie Molineux
Coach: Simon Helmot
Last season 7th
Squad: Sophie Molineux (capt), Georgia Wareham, Eve Jones (Eng), Harmanpreet Kaur (Ind), Jemimah Rodrigues (Ind), Makinley Blows, Josie Dooley, Jess Duffin, Ellie Falconer, Holly Ferling, Poppy Gardner, Ella Hayward, Carly Leeson, Rhiann O'Donnell, Courtney Webb

Out Molly Strano (Hurricanes), Maitlan Brown (Sixers), Lizelle Lee, Amy Satterthwaite, Lea Tahuhu, Erin Fazackerley, Courtney Neale
Mavericks have had an enormous turnover of players and staff since last season with just a small bunch of natural appearances staying following a helpless mission. Lachie Stevens left as mentor and Simon Helmot assumes control over, falling off winning the Caribbean Premier League title with St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. Sophie Molineux takes over as chief from Amy Satterthwaite while Lea Tahuhu additionally hasn't returned. They have reinforced their batting with the signings of India team Harmanpreet Kaur and Jemimah Rodrigues and Eve Jones from England while Jess Duffin's return from maternity leave adds some genuinely necessary experience. The bowling will be tried however without Tahuhu, Maitlan Brown and Strano. They actually have a ton of twist profundity, however they come up short on a smidgen of strike power in the speed division. Holly Ferling adds some new-ball experience running over from the Stars and there is some fervor around 16-year-old left-armer Poppy Gardner.
Player to observe
There is a lot of value in the top request yet Georgia Wareham looms as a X-factor with both bat and ball. Her bowling is a-list as she has demonstrated in T20 World Cups, however Renegades are exceptionally quick to keep on advancing her batting in T20 cricket. She had the 6th most noteworthy strike-rate last season (146.31) and discovered the limit each five conveyances, positioning her just behind Laura Kimmince and Alyssa Healy, among those with in excess of 100 runs, and well above Meg Lanning and Sophie Devine. Wareham exhibited her batting capacity under tension in the second T20I against India and the Renegades are quick to additionally foster her hitting capacity.
Captain: Meg Lanning
Coach: Jarrad Loughman
Last season (1st) Runners-up
Squad: Meg Lanning (capt), Annabel Sutherland, Maia Bouchier (Eng), Kim Garth (Ire), Linsey Smith (Eng), Lucy Cripps, Maddy Darke, Nicole Faltum, Tess Flintoff, Georgia Gall, Anna Lanning, Rhys McKenna, Erin Osborne, Elyse Villani

Out Alana King (Scorchers), Mignon du Preez (Hurricanes), Holly Ferling (Renegades), Katherine Brunt, Natalie Sciver, Bhavi Devchand
It will be a difficult thing to ask for Stars to reproduce last season's rushed to the last given the measure of playing quality they have lost. Jarrad Loughman takes over as mentor, however he will not be changing a significant part of the equation having worked close by the leaving Trent Woodhill last season. Notwithstanding, the turnover of global players is the place where they will be tried the most. Britain stars Nat Sciver and Katherine Brunt are inaccessible while du Preez has moved to the Hurricanes. They have likewise lost some quality bowlers in Alana King and Holly Ferling. Kim Garth is an amazing option having moved from Ireland to Melbourne for all time, while the enlistment of England left-arm universal Linsey Smith adds some worldwide experience. Maia Bouchier falls off an England season where she made her worldwide presentation and will profit from batting with any semblance of Meg Lanning and Elyse Villani.
Player to observe
Lanning and Villani are generally the keys to Stars' prosperity yet the one player who could truly surprise the WBBL this season is Annabel Sutherland. She made her Test debut against India as of late and her bowling seems to have moved forward. She has had restricted freedoms with the bat in her short global vocation up until this point yet has shown guarantee on most events. She made one 50 years in 11 innings in last year's WBBL however without du Preez and Sciver she will bear undeniably greater obligation in the center request this season and her force game could separate her.
Captain: Sophie Devine
Coach: Shelley Nitschke
Last season (4th) Semi-final
Squad: Sophie Devine (NZ)(capt), Beth Mooney, Chamari Athapaththu (SL), Marizanne Kapp (SA), Samantha Betts, Mathilda Carmichael, Piepa Cleary, Ashley Day, Amy Edgar, Heather Graham, Lisa Griffith, Alana King, Lilly Mills, Taneale Peschel, Chloe Piparo

Out Jemma Barsby (Strikers), Amy Jones, Sarah Glenn, Emma King (retired), Nicole Bolton (Sixers), Megan Banting, Georgia Wyllie
Scorchers have indeed had a high turnover of players however have added some quality to their line-up. The option of Marizanne Kapp gives their assault some genuine strength while Alana King's legspin changes it up after they lost three great spinners in Sarah Glenn, Nicole Bolton and Emma King. Bolton is additionally a misfortune in the center request, yet Chamari Athapaththu will give an alternate dynamic as far as her influence. She hasn't recently created her best in the WBBL with Renegades yet has a great record in Australia for Sri Lanka and delivered two top notch innings at the WACA in the T20 World Cup last year, with Scorchers planned to play three games there. Scorchers have the best opening blend in the WBBL with Sophie Devine and Beth Mooney set to star again yet the group can be somewhat awkward on occasion and will require both to deliver the entire year and in the finals to guarantee the title.
Player to observe
It appears glaringly evident to say however Sophie Devine and Beth Mooney are hard to overlook. Devine gets the opportunity to win three successive Player of the Tournament grants while Mooney enters the opposition on the rear of noteworthy returns in the white-ball matches against India. They are two remarkable cricketers who can convey their group on their shoulders. Devine has incomplete business having always lost a title in Australia while Mooney is hoping to guarantee a third having won twice already with Heat.
Captain: Ellyse Perry
Coach: Ben Sawyer
Last season 5th
Squad: Ellyse Perry (capt), Jade Allen, Nicole Bolton, Maitlan Brown, Erin Burns, Stella Campbell, Lauren Cheatle, Ashleigh Gardner, Alyssa Healy, Emma Hughes, Matilda Lugg, Angela Reakes Claire Moore, Shafali Verma (IND), Radha Yadav (IND)

Out Marizanne Kapp, Dane van Niekerk, Jodie Hicks, Sarah Aley (retired), Maddy Darke, Lisa Griffith, Hayley Silver-Holmes (injured)
After two disappointing seasons where they have finished fifth to miss the finals there has been a revamp of Sixers' squad. Earlier this year their new list manager Lisa Sthalekar said they had "fallen behind" in the T20 game, while Ellyse Perry told ESPNcricinfo there would be changes to how they play. The most significant of those may involve Perry who could move down the order with new signing Shafali Verma joining Healy in what could be an electric opening pair. The arrival of Maitlan Brown will need to compensate for the loss of Kapp's overs while Bolton's role with her offspin in the Powerplay could be significant. Pace bowler Hayley-Silver Homes is out of the whole tournament due to a hip injury and Erin Burns will miss at least the Tasmania leg for personal reasons.
Player to watch
Through a combination of various events - including the rain at the beginning of the tournament then another concussion - Ashleigh Gardner only faced 69 balls in last season's competition and 35 of those of those came in one innings when she made 53. Her strike-rate of 134.78 was second behind Healy and the freedom she is given to play with means low scores are an occupational hazard. But she will hope to have an impact over a longer period this season. A lot of work went into her offspin during the winter and that will again be a key part of the attack, particularly against opposition left handers.
Captain: Rachael Haynes
Coach: Trevor Griffin
Last season (3rd) Champions
Squad: Rachael Haynes (capt), Samantha Bates, Hannah Darlington, Jess Davidson, Corinne Hall, Sammy-Jo Johnson, Anika Learoyd, Phoebe Litchfield, Smriti Mandhana (IND), Kate Peterson, Olivia Porter, Deepti Sharma (IND), Lauren Smith, Tahlia Wilson, Issy Wong (ENG)
In Jess Davidson, Corinne Hall (Hurricanes), Smriti Mandhana, Deepti Sharma, Issy Wong
Out Rachael Trenaman (Hurricanes), Tammy Beaumont, Heather Knight, Shabnim Ismail, Saskia Horley
The defending champions have kept the core of their local players together although it remains to be confirmed how much of the season captain Rachael Haynes is available for while she takes maternity leave. As with Sixers there has been a complete turnover in the overseas players with England players unavailable and the injury to South Africa's Shabnim Ismail. Smriti Mandhana will have a big load to carry with the bat - especially during Haynes' absence - but comes into the tournament in terrific form. Keep an eye out for the pace of Issy Wong while it will be interesting to see if Phoebe Litchfield is able to get an opportunity higher up the order.
Player to watch
Sammy-Jo Johnson had a big impact with the ball last season after her move from Heat with 22 wickets at 14.81. She formed a telling new-ball combination with Ismail - which peaked with their almost perfect display in the final - but without the South Africa quick this season, Johnson will have to take more responsibility. During the off-season she took part in the Hundred where she finished as the joint second-leading wicket-taker. Depending on how she is used with the bat, an increase on last year's 108 runs could also be critical.
