The last time these sides met in WBBL03, Brisbane Heat Women won by five wickets at The Gabba and lost in Melbourne to the Stars by six. After a shaky start, the Melbourne Stars are a different outfit this season, and the return of veteran captain Kristen Beams to the side will only embellish this.
The Heat would have been hoping to have had a better start to the season but with all the quality they have in their squad, there is every chance they can turn it around against the Renegades.
In this year’s Women’s Big Bash League, everybody is trying even harder than normal to beat the Sydney Sixers who have set a marker down once again with some impressive performances so far.
The last time Melbourne Stars and Perth Scorchers faced off, the Melbourne team edged to a 12-run victory over their Perth counterparts, despite Elyse Villani’s inspired 72 off 44 balls.
The two Sydney clubs will face off under the lights in a blockbuster match-up for what promises to be a fantastic match. It will be the first time the Thunder have played under the lights since their season opener in the Women’s Big Bash League in 2016.
