Melbourne Stars Women vs. Brisbane Heat Women Prediction and Betting Tips

Women BBL 2020 Match 49: MLSW vs. BRHW – Sat, 21st November

Women BBL 2020 Match Prediction

The Match 49th of the ongoing Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL 2020) has the Table Toppers Melbourne Stars Women taking on the Brisbane Heat Women at the Drummoyne Oval in Sydney. It is the opening match of the quadruple header Saturday.

The last time these two teams played against each other this season, the Melbourne Stars agreeably thrashed the Brisbane Heat by 23 runs. Captain Meg Lanning took the team to 177 with an incredibly fast 25 ball 54 with six boundaries and three sixes. Our Women’s BBL Match Prediction predicts that MLSW will win this match on the 21st and continue being the table toppers.

Team Preview

Both these teams sit on the top of the points table. Melbourne starts have been domineering throughout this season. Whereas, the Brisbane heat have proved their mettle by winning five games on the trot after four successive losses in the first half of the season.

The Heat, who are the defending champions, will be looking to inch closer to a secured top-four spot. Despite losing Sammy Jo-Johnson and Beth Mooney in the off-season, the Brisbane Heat have shown character to overturn a sluggish start and have a playoff place firmly in their sights. Grace Harris and Georgia Redmayne’s duo has played the excellent fiddle in this resurrection. They haven’t allowed any team to get through in this last few weeks.

Melbourne Stars, on the contrary, have not taken a foot wrong in this tournament. With 19 points in the bag already, they have secured their position in the playoffs. This allows them to bench their prime players, allowing them to rest before the business end of the league. Therefore we shall witness the Stars tinker with the combination of players in the upcoming games. Their bowling line up led by Natalie Sciver has been highly impressive. Do not forget the star players Mignon du Preez and Elyse Villani who along with their skipper, have contributed just at the right times.

Both teams have star-studded squads although Meg Lanning and co will be the odds-on favourites to get the success on Saturday. With their WBBL season potentially on the line, the Heat should give a brute fight in what could be a fascinating WBBL game at the Drummoyne Oval in Sydney.

The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:

With this being the first WBBL 2020 game of the day at this venue, the pitch could be on the faster side. Being a morning game, we shall witness dew. While the pacers should get some movement off the surface, the spinners could be essential in the middle overs. The bowlers will make sure of taking advantage of the dew factor. Our Women’s BBL Match Prediction predicts that teams will opt to the ball first on winning the toss. Hence toss will be critical.

Key Players to watch:

  • Captain Meg Lanning and Mignon Du Preez of the Melbourne Stars Women and Grace Harris and Jess Jonassen of the Brisbane Heat will be key players to watch out for in this match.
