Perth Scorchers women vs Melbourne Stars women, WBBL 2020
Perth Scorchers women will take on Melbourne Stars women in the 42ndst 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
Melbourne Stars and Perth Scorchers are the top two teams of the points table. Perth Scorchers are in middle of a juggernaut, winning their last 4 matches on the trot. Melbourne Stars on the other hand lost their last match to Melbourne Renegades in the super over. Sophie Devine and Beth Mooney should be credited for the change in fortune for Perth Scorchers. Both are looking in ominous touch and will be determined to play another match winning knocks. Chloe Piparo also played a decent knock of 30 in the previous match. Perth Scorchers would like to see some runs from Megan Banting, Nicole Balton and Heather Graham as the top order won’t score runs in every game, exactly what happened against Sydney Thunder. Even after managing only 131, Perth cruised to a 34 run victory showing their quality with the ball. Nicole Bolton, Sophie Devine and Heather Graham form a strong bowling line up.
Melbourne Stars won’t be thinking much about their last loss. They’ve arguably been the best side of the tournament. With Elyse Villani, Meg Lanning, Megan du Preez and Natalie Sciver, they boast of a powerful batting line up. Alana King down the order played a brilliant knock of 27, showing the depth in Stars batting. In the bowling department, Natalie Sciver, Holly Ferling, Sophie Day and Alana Kings have been bowling brilliantly. It’s all set up for an enthralling contest but we expect Melbourne Stars to win the match.
