mlsw vs perw Match Prediction & Analysis

The Women’s Big Bash League 2020 has finally entered its knockout stage with the four semi-finalists decided. The 1st semi-final will be between Melbourne Stars Women and Perth Scorchers Women and it promises to be a cracker of a contest. For Melbourne Stars, this will be a huge moment as they have earned their maiden knockout berth by finishing at the No.1 position in the points table. Perth Scorchers, meanwhile, were also played some solid cricket to earn their 4th spot. However, the Stars have been the better team overall and would certainly have the edge in this knockout contest. 

Teams Preview

Melbourne Stars Women Preview

While Melbourne Stars Women should be highly confident of their chances, they have to be a little careful as they are coming off two back-to-back losses. In their last game, despite posting a healthy 178-4 against Sydney Sixers Women, the Stars lost by 5 wickets (DLS method). 

Despite the loss, though, the Stars would be happy that their batting unit continues to be in great form. Openers Elyse Villani (45) and Meg Lanning (77) gave the team another great start in the last match and they would certainly be hoping to continue their great form.  Another player to watch out for in the semi-finals is Mignon du Preez who is the second-highest run-getter for the team this season after skipper Lanning with 375 runs in 13 matches. Also, Natalie Sciver (194 runs) is one batter who could make a difference down the order.

On the bowling front, the Stars have done a pretty good job so far. Natalie Sciver (18 wickets), along with Alana King (12 wickets) and Sophie Day (10 wickets) have been the leading wicket-takers for the team this year and the three would have to take the onus once again. Tess Flintoff showed great form in the last match with 3 wickets in her kitty and she could be a surprise package again here.

Melbourne Stars Women Predicted Playing XI:

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

Perth Scorchers Women Preview

Perth Scorchers Women, despite being one of the better teams this season, would be wary of their chances in the semi-final as they have been beaten twice already by Melbourne Stars this season. Moreover, they are coming off a 3-run loss against Adelaide Strikers Women and would need to get their act together fast against the best team in the tournament.

For Perth, skipper Sophie Devine (448 runs) and Beth Mooney (524 runs) have been the batting stars of the team this season. The two openers have carried the team throughout and much of their chances in this semi-final depend on the performance of these two. The others in the batting unit like Amy Ellen Jones and Nicole Bolton haven’t really performed and the next highest run-getter for Perth is Chloe Piparo with 117 runs. Thus, if the openers fail in this game, Perth could be in big trouble.  

Perth’s bowling has mainly centered on Sarah Glenn (16 wickets) and Taneale Peschel (13 wickets). Heather Graham and Nicole Bolton have done a fine job as well but would need to be at their best now. Bolton’s off-spin, in fact, could be detrimental. 

Perth Scorchers Women Predicted Playing XI:

Beth Mooney (wk), Sophie Devine (c), Amy Ellen Jones, Chloe Piparo, Heather Graham, Nicole Bolton, Mathilda Carmichael, Sarah Glenn, Taneale Peschel, Piepa Cleary, Samantha Betts

Weather Conditions

The pitch at the North Sydney Oval in Sydney has been pretty good for batting in recent times and has stayed even throughout the course of the match. The surface doesn’t slow down and allows batters to hit through the line. The seamers and spinners should find some purchase because of the good bounce here.

The weather forecast at Sydney for the day of the semi-final is thankfully clear. The skies will be partly cloudy and that could help the seam bowlers early on.

Venue Details

The last few games at the North Sydney Oval have been high-scoring ones and by the looks of it, we are in for another big one in the semi-final. Teams have managed to comfortably go past 160 on this venue recently and hence the side batting first in this match would look to target a total of around 170 to feel confident. 

Toss: To Bat

The team winning the toss should bat first. This is a knockout game and batting second could be quite tricky and risky if the team batting first gets a big total on the board.

MLSW vs PERW Winning Prediction

Melbourne Stars Women have had the upper hand over Perth Scorchers Women in recent seasons and that will certainly play on their mind as they enter their first semi-final of the league. Having beaten Perth comfortably n their previous two encounters this season, the Stars would be confident of their chances in the match. They have a well-settled unit that has done a great all-round job throughout. Perth’s best chances at victory will rely heavily on the performance of Sophie Devine and Beth Mooney and if the two get going then the team will be hard to stop. However, given their overall strength and form, Melbourne Stars will have the edge in this contest.

Melbourne Stars Women start as favorites for this match.
