Match Preview

Even though they are coming off a defeat in their last game, Brisbane Heat Women are still the number 2 placed team in the WBBL 2019-20. A stunning chase by Melbourne Renegades Women earned Brisbane Heat their first loss after 7 victories in a row. However, they are still at the top of the points table with 18 points and a Net Run Rate of +0.706. Brisbane Heat has won 9 games and lost 4 and has looked the most polished side of the season. They are playing like defending champions and look all set to march into their second consecutive finals.

Meanwhile, Melbourne Stars Women are at the opposite end of the points table from Brisbane Heat. After facing yet another loss in their last game against Melbourne Renegades Women, Melbourne Stars have now confirmed their spot at the bottom of the points table with just 4 points and a horrible Net Run Rate of -0.716. With 11 losses and only 2 wins in the season, Melbourne Stars have had a nightmarish season and would be eager to simply get things over with and start afresh for the next season.

Teams Preview

Melbourne Stars Women

Playing at home will not really be an advantage for Melbourne Stars Women as they have had a horrible record this season. Moreover, the opposition is the best team of the season. One of the better things about the Melbourne Stars Women this season has been their batting. Particularly of three batters on whom the whole team has been dependent on. Opener Lizelle Lee (459 runs) and Mignon du Preez (402 runs) have been the constant performers for the team. Captain Elyse Villani (319 runs) too has been among the runs. However, these three have done the bulk of the scoring from the top-order but the middle and lower-order have failed miserably. Barring Nicola Hancock to an extent, the others have not taken the responsibility and the team has suffered.

The bowling of Melbourne Stars Women has been a big let down. Only off-spinner Erin Osborne (11 wickets) has been among the wickets. The likes of Annabel Sutherland, Holly Ferling, Alana King and Tess Flintoff have not had much of an impact. They have either leaked too many runs or have been unable to take wickets to stop the opposition. Against a top batting side like Brisbane Heat, their bowling will once again be severely tested.

Melbourne Stars Women Actual Playing XI:

Mignon du Preez, Nicole Faltum, Erin Osborne, Holly Ferling, Lucy Cripps, Lizelle Lee, Alana King, Elyse Villani, Tess Flintoff, Annabel Sutherland, Kristen Beams

Brisbane Heat Women

Brisbane Heat Women would be hurting after their shock loss at the hands of Melbourne Renegades Women in their last match. However, even in that match, they had posted a tall total of 183-4 and looked set to win the game before a sensational batting performance took the game away from them. Regardless, Brisbane Heat Women will begin confidently for this game against Melbourne Stars Women.

They have the best batting line up in the tournament and their bowling has been very good as well. Opener and wicket-keeper Beth Mooney has now become the second player to score more than 600 runs in the season and is flying high after her fluent 86 off 57 balls in the last match. Jess Jonassen (348 runs) has held the middle-order together with her composed batting and is in good touch. Maddy Green (247 runs) has also been among the runs and these three top-order batters have been doing the bulk of the scoring for the team.

Brisbane Heat's bowling has good variety as well. Sammy-Jo Johnson (16 wickets), Delissa Kimmince (16 wickets) and Jess Jonassen (17 wickets) have been three stars of the bowling line up. Even though they went for runs in the last game, the trio would be confident of continuing their good work for the team in this match.

Brisbane Heat Women Actual Playing XI:

Grace Harris, Beth Mooney, Maddy Green, Kirby Short, Jess Jonassen, Mikayla Hinkley, Amelia Kerr, Sammy Jo Johnson, Delissa Kimmince, Georgia Prestwidge, Laura Harris

Pitch And Weather Conditions

The surface at the Junction Oval in Melbourne has remained good for batting all through the 40 overs. The pitch is hard in the first few overs, where the betters can really play their shots. As it slows down, the spinners and the seamers can get some help. A total of 160-odd too can be chased down by the team batting second. Some rain is expected on the day of the match and hence we can have a rain-curtailed game. If the showers are regular, then the seam bowlers will really come into play and batting will become difficult.

Venue Details

The Junction Oval in Melbourne has provided some really entertaining contests. Totals of 160-plus are regular and hence we can expect a high-scoring contest. With the star-studded batting lineup of Brisbane Heat Women, there might be some good number of fours and sixes in the game.

Toss Prediction

In the 2019-20 season if the WBBL 7 of the 9 matches played on this venue have been won by the team batting second. The team winning the toss is hence likely to bowl first.

Winning Prediction

Brisbane is playing like defending champions and has a very strong batting unit along with a good bowling unit. Melbourne Stars Women have looked lost and out of place this season. They will be going through the motions in this game and one can't expect much of a fight. Hence, expect Brisbane Heat Women to clinch an easy victory and secure their top spot.
