Melbourne Stars women vs Hobart Hurricanes women, WBBL 2020
Melbourne Stars women will take on Hobart Hurricanes women in the 46th game of the women’s Big Bash League. The match will be played on the Hurstville Oval, Sydney and is scheduled to begin at 2:30 PM local time
While most of the teams are struggling for runs, Melbourne Stars are winning matches on the back of some stellar show with the bat. With Elyse Villani, Meg Lanning, Megan du Preez, they boast of a powerful batting line up. Alana King down the order has also played some crucial innings for the stars, showing the depth in their batting. In the bowling department, Rosemary Mair, Alana King and Sophie Day bowled brilliantly in the last game. Holly Ferling, Annabel Sutherland have been terrific throughout. Overall, Melbourne Stars are a complete team that will be very hard to stop..
Hobart Hurricanes were thrashed by Adelaide Strikers in their last match. Hurricanes were bundled out for a mere 82 against Brisbane Heat and followed it up with another miserable performance, managing only 77 against Strikers. Players like Naomi Stalenberg and Rachel Priest need to come good with the bat. Nicola Carey and Hayley Matthews too need to support their team with some runs. They need runs from their top order to give players like Sasha Moloney and Chloe Tyron a chance to score quickly at the death. Just as inconsistent as their batting, Hurricanes have been disappointing with the ball too. Belinda Vakarewa and Hayley Matthews need to strike early while Nicola Carey, Amy Smith and Brooke Hepburn need to stop the flow of runs. However, it won't be against a strong Stars batting.
