THE TEAM NEWS

MELBOURNE STARS WOMEN

  • Melbourne Stars continued their miserable run of form as they were hammered by Adelaide Strikers which was their fourth consecutive loss in the Women’s Big Bash League and eighth of this year’s competition so far.
  • The Stars struggled with both bat and ball once again with the Strikers able to take advantage of a poor bowling display to rack up 153 for the loss of just two wickets and the third-wicket stand remained unbeaten on 102 runs at the end of the innings.
  • It was a pitiful response by the Stars who appear to have had all of their confidence sucked out of them and the loss of regular wickets proved to be their downfall as they managed just 96 for the loss of eight wickets from their 20 overs, which resulted in a 57-run loss.

PERTH SCORCHERS WOMEN

  • Perth Scorchers had their three-match winning streak in the WBBL ended by a dominant display by Brisbane Heat with the Scorchers falling well short against their classy opponents.
  • The Scorchers were put in to bat and a slow start which saw them lose both openers inside the first three overs and that cost them any momentum as they stuttered their way to 112/8 off their 20 overs.
  • Beth Mooney proved to be an immovable object at the crease for the Heat as she scored an unbeaten 60 in response with the Scorchers struggling to reduce the flow of runs and that saw the Heat run out comfortable winners.

THE PREDICTION

Melbourne Stars have only managed one victory in this year’s competition so far and that came against their opponents in this game. Perth Scorchers will have that game in mind when they head into this one with revenge likely to be top of their agenda as they attempt to keep the pace with those teams above them in the race for a spot in the knockout stages. They have all the motivation they need and should be able to utilise it to their advantage to condemn the Stars to another loss.
