THE PREDICTION

Melbourne Stars became the first team to book their place in the finals of WBBL|06 as they secured a 39-run over Hobart Hurricanes with Annabel Sutherland’s 72 doing most of the damage with the bat. That knock helped her side to 159/3 and they never looked in any danger of allowing the Hurricanes to surpass that with the Stars restricting them to just 120/8. They cannot be caught at the top of the ladder so they can afford to take their foot off the gas before the finals but having won eight of their last nine, it is likely they will want to keep the momentum going. Brisbane Heat come into this in second spot but their position is far from secure with a cluster of teams all in the chasing pack looking to topple them. However, they are in good form themselves having won their last five matches with their latest an impressive success against another in-form side in Perth Scorchers. The defending champions edged a close game by four wickets thanks to a brilliant 40* from just 17 balls from Laura Kimmince to reach their target of 138 with just four balls left. There is little to split between the two here but the Stars can make a big statement with a win and they can do just that.
