Match Preview

On paper, this seems a bit of a mismatch. While Adelaide Strikers are sitting on the second spot as far as the points table is concerned, Melbourne Stars have been the worst team in this tournament. However, Adelaide Strikers have also crashed down in the last two games. They were soaring high after the first five games after they lost only one game against Melbourne Renegades. But in the last two games, it’s gone downhill for the Strikers.

They’ve won most of their games convincingly, Brisbane Heat gave them a proper thrashing when they chased down 142 with almost three overs to spare. In the last game, they fell agonisingly short of 174 as Perth Scorchers win a nail-biting game by two tuns. Melbourne Stars are lying at the bottom of the table with two points (one win and five losses). They lost their first three games comprehensively but just when they were showing signs of returning to form, they lost another game by a big margin. They lost a tight game against Sydney Thunder before getting off the mark against Perth Scorchers when they beat them by 20 runs. But Sydney Sixers thrashed them to stall their rise.

Teams Preview

Adelaide Strikers Women Preview

The Adelaide Strikers batting has been decent but they haven’t racked up big scores. They haven’t needed to as the bowlers have produced some good performances throughout the season which has made it easier for the batters. In fact, the highest total they conceded is 154 while defending 152 in the second game. Sophie Devine, Megan Schutt and Sarah Coyte are at the top of the wicket charts for the Strikers. They have picked up 23 wickets among them. Moreover, their economy-rates are very good too. The support cast has been good too. The likes of Tahlia McGrath and Amanda Wellington have been decent and have contributed well too. Meanwhile, Devine has been very good with the bat as well. She has scored 250 runs at an average of 41.66 and at a strike-rate of nearly 130. The New Zealand star has also piled up three half-centuries so far. Suzie Bates has scratchy and has failed to convert some good starts in the last couple of games. Bridget Patterson has been good, scoring 190 runs in this WBBL so far.

Melbourne Stars Women Preview

The Melbourne Stars have been pretty scratchy with the bat. Their only win came when they put up 155 batting first and that’s their highest score in this season. Lizelle Lee has been in fine form. She has scored 239 runs at an average of 47.80 and a strike-rate of 135.79. The South African star opener also struck a ton in Stars’ win over the Scorchers. Elyse Villani has been inconsistent. She has scored a couple of the fifties but she’s also had four other scores of less than 20. The rest of the batting line-up has been disappointing. Mignon du Preez has failed to convert starts while the likes of Erin Osborne and Nicole Faltum have failed to deliver.

With the ball, Erin Osborne is leading the wicket charts – seven wickets. 19-year-old leg-spinner Madeline Penna has been impressive as well. She has picked up six wickets. The rest of the attack hasn’t been penetrative enough.

Winning Prediction

Melbourne Stars have been struggling in this tournament. They’ve lost five out of their six games and even a win here will not take them off the last position.

On the other hand, Adelaide Strikers seem to be the better team and are going well. They did lose their last two games but will back themselves to turn it around once again and get back to winning ways.
