The match 55 of WBBL 2020 will be held at the North Sydney Oval, played between Melbourne Stars Women vs Sydney Sixers. The match will be kicked off on 22nd November (Sunday) at 08:45 (GMT+6).
In the final matchday of the league stage, table-toppers Melbourne Stars Women are taking on Sydney Sixers Women. A loss that shouldn’t concern them much is coming off the Melbourne Stars. As their batting order stepped up again after Captain Lanning’s rare failure, they still looked like a strong side. However, the side did not bowl according to the condition and made it simpler for the Heat batters.
On the other hand, in their previous game, Sydney Sixers Women desperately needed a victory but their bowlers failed to deliver in the most crucial moments. Healy scored a superb 38-ball 63 that also included some runs for Ellyse Perry too. However, in the most crucial moment, their bowlers failed to deliver and lost the game by enormous 6 wickets with 5 balls to spare. With 12 points, they are currently in fifth place in the points table and are almost out of the competition with one match to go.
The weather is forecasted to be a bit gloomy with some chances of rainfall in the afternoon, and the temperature will stay around 24 Degrees Celsius.
It has been a while since the last game of WBBL at this venue. On this pitch, batting second has always been not easy. But anything over 130-140 should be a winning total for the side batting first.
