THE TEAM NEWS

MELBOURNE STARS WOMEN

  • Melbourne Stars were unable to follow-up their victory over Melbourne Renegades as they lost to Sydney Thunder last time out but will relish this matchup as they aim to do the double over their Melbourne rivals.
  • The Stars struggled to restrict the Thunder after putting them in to bat with the Sydney side managing to amass 162/6 from their 20 overs with Alex Blackwell doing most of the damage with the bat.
  • Having successfully chased down 165 against the Renegades, the Stars would have fancied their chances of repeating that feat but despite a knock of 55 from Mignon du Preez, her side did not score quickly enough and they fell 18 runs short.

MELBOURNE RENEGADES WOMEN

  • Melbourne Renegades picked up a vital win as they ended Brisbane Heat’s superb winning run but that victory only serves to highlight the inconsistent nature of the Renegades after bouncing back from their shock loss to Melbourne Storm.
  • The Renegades looked to be in trouble with Beth Mooney dictating play for the reigning Women’s Big Bash League champions and they were able to rack up a huge score of 183 which looked like a daunting prospect to chase.
  • It did not deter the Renegades and they were able to produce the highest run chase in WBBL history, which was largely thanks to a fantastic 87 from Danni Wyatt and she was ably supported by an unbeaten 50 from skipper Jess Duffin as they pulled off the remarkable win.

THE PREDICTION

Melbourne Renegades made history by chasing down 183 to achieve the highest ever run chase in the WBBL. They highlighted how dangerous they can be but simply have to back that up here against a side they lost to just last week. Melbourne Stars shocked the Renegades to claim just their second win of this year’s competition but failed to back that up last time out and with the Renegades’ knockout hopes very much in the balance, they must find some consistency to earn revenge and come out on top in this contest.
