Women BBL 2020 Match Prediction:
The Grand finale of the ongoing Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) 2020 will witness Melbourne Stars Women against their arch-rivals Sydney Thunder Women at the North Sydney Oval Ground on 28th November.
There hasn’t been the absence of anticipation for fans, as the sixth edition of the WBBL 2020 has been utmost closely-fought competitions with most of the matches going all the way down the line.
With a victory in their league-stage match against the Thunders, the Melbourne Stars will enter onto the ground as picks to lift the desired WBBL trophy. They have an intimidating squad on paper, and the quality of cricket being played by the team in a preceding couple of weeks has been first-class. Our Women’s BBL Match Prediction foresees that Melbourne Stars Women who will play their first-ever final will clinch the title to this season of WBBL 2020.
Melbourne Stars Women will win this game.
Melbourne Stars Women have been one of the most constant teams in the 2020 WBBL. After languishing at the bottom of the table in the last season, skipper Meg Lanning has led with a positive approach yielding them massive dividends.
They have been heavily reliant on a formidable batting roster led by skipper Meg Lanning and Elyse Villani. The experience of Natalie Sciver and the young spinner in the likes of Alana King and Sophie Day have strengthened their bowling line up.
Sydney Thunder Women, on the contrary, come into this game after defeating the defending champions Brisbane Heat in the semifinals. Their team is a perfect balance of global stars and fresh and forthcoming talents from the domestic circuit. Although they won the introductory season of WBBL, they wriggled in the past couple of editions of the tournament.
Captain Rachel Haynes single-handedly carried the duty of the team’s batting roster throughout the season. Their bowling unit too will be marching onto the field with enormous confidence after defending a total of 143.
Melbourne Stars Women are on the edge of making history while the Sydney Thunder Women would want to make compensations and clinch their second trophy in the competition.
The venue, Pitch Report, and Toss Prediction:
The WBBL 2020 final is likely to be played on the same wicket that was used in the second semifinal. While the pitch started moderately slow in the first few overs, the pitch got marginally improved under the lights, with the ball coming on to the bat. The same could be witnessed in the finals of WBBL 2020.
Nonetheless, in a crux match like the final, the burden of a run chase could be threatening to handle, and irrespective of the pitch conditions on offer, the skipper winning the toss is likely to look to bat first. Our Women’s BBL Match Prediction predicts that the toss will be critical.
Key Players to watch:
- Skipper Meg Lanning, Mignon du Preez and Natalie Sciver of the Melbourne Stars Women will be key players in the match.
- Heather Knight, Captain Rachel Haynes and Sammy Jo-Johnson of the Sydney Thunders will be key players in this final game.
