mlsw vs mlrw Match Prediction & Analysis

Melbourne Stars Women have emerged as the surprise package of the Women’s Big Bash League 2020. No one expected them to be at the pole position in the table more than halfway through the tournament and yet there they are. Melbourne Stars are unbeaten in the season so far and have won 6 games on the trot. They are now well and truly the team to beat this season and are looking like an unstoppable force. They would be taking on a hapless Melbourne Renegades Women next and considering that the Renegades have been the worst-performing team of the season, the Stars shouldn’t be too worried about their chances in this game. 

Teams Preview

Melbourne Stars Women Preview

Melbourne Stars Women had finished at the 8th position last season and in the 7th position for two continuous seasons before that. Not much was expected from them this time but after 9 games, the Stars remain the only unbeaten team this season. They beat Sydney Thunder Women in the last game by 8 wickets to claim the top spot and look good for many more now.

The best thing about this team is that they haven’t been dependent on some stars and everyone has performed at some stage or the other. Star batter Meg Lanning has led the team well and has been supported well by the likes of Elyse Villani, Mignon du Preez, Natalie Sciver, and Annabel Sutherland.

On the bowling front, the Stars have hunted as a pack. Katherine Brunt has been the leader who regularly bowls economical overs or takes some wickets. Sciver has been in terrific form with the ball and Sophie Day, along with Alana King, and Erin Osborne has done a fine supporting job. 

Melbourne Stars Women Predicted Playing XI:

Meg Lanning (c), Elyse Villani, Mignon du Preez, Natalie Sciver, Annabel Sutherland, Erin Osborne, Nicole Faltum (wk), Tess Flintoff, Katherine Brunt, Sophie Day, Alana King

Melbourne Renegades Women Preview

Melbourne Renegades Women just can’t seem to get their act together this season and it appears as if it’s already too late for them. Barring that surprising win against Sydney Thunder Women, their performance has been truly below par and they find themselves stuck at the bottom with 6 losses. The Renegades would need to do something special to take down the best side in the tournament now.

Neither the batting nor the bowling has clicked for the Renegades this season. Their batters have shown good performances here and there but that hasn’t been enough to challenge oppositions. For instance, in their last match against Perth Scorchers Women, they only managed 122 runs on the board even with 7 wickets in hand. Sophie Molineux, Carly Leeson, skipper Amy Satterthwaite, Lizelle Lee, and Courtney Webb have all been good in patches but need to deliver a strong performance to put the opposition under pressure.

On the bowling front, while Carly Leeson has been decent, Rosemary Mair has been pretty expensive in her opening bursts. Only Sophie Molineux has managed a few impressive spells and, to some extent, Molly Strano. However, that might not be enough against a side like the Stars.  

Melbourne Renegades Women Predicted Playing XI:

Sophie Molineux, Carly Leeson, Amy Satterthwaite (c), Lizelle Lee, Courtney Webb, Amy Yates, Josephine Dooley (wk), Molly Strano, Makinley Blows, Ella Hayward, Rosemary Mair

Weather Conditions

The pitch at the Sydney Showground Stadium has been a good one for both the batters and the bowlers. The ball comes on nicely to the bat early on but seamers do get some good purchase from the wicket. The pitch tends to become better for batting in the second innings.

The weather forecast for Sydney for the day of the game is bright and clear and hence we can expect a full match. 

Venue Details

The Sydney Showground Stadium has been one of the better venues in this season, producing some high-scoring contests. However, while we did see a total of 190 being achieved here earlier this season, the pitch has slowed down a bit as the tournament has progressed. The team batting first would target a total of around 150-160 to feel safe. 

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing has shown better results on this ground and hence the team winning the toss is likely to bowl first and then restrict the opposition for a below-par total.

MLSW vs MLRW Winning Prediction

The last game between Melbourne Stars Women and Melbourne Renegades Women in this season was abandoned. In recent seasons, the Stars have had the upper hand against the Renegades and things are unlikely to change this time. The Stars have gone from strength to strength and look like the best side of the tournament now. The Renegades, meanwhile, look completely deflated, and barring a few odd performances from some players, they have failed as a unit. The Melbourne Stars have got all bases covered and are the favorites of this clash.

Melbourne Stars Women should emerge as the winners of the encounter.
