The Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) 2022 season is set to resume on October 20 after a day’s hiatus. The match, scheduled to be played at the WACA, will feature the Melbourne Stars taking on defending champions Perth Scorchers.

The Scorchers are currently on a winning streak, registering clinical victories in their first two matches of the ongoing season. They are placed at number two on the points table, behind the Sydney Sixers.

The Stars, on the other hand, are yet to open their account this year. They lost their opening game to Brisbane Heat by nine runs as well as their subsequent fixture against the Sixers by 27 runs.

Match Details

Venue: W.A.C.A Ground, Perth
Date & Time: October 20, 2.40 PM IST
Live Streaming: Sony Sports Network and Sony LIV

Pitch Report: The surface at the iconic WACA ground in Perth traditionally offers good pace and bounce to the seamers. In the recently held World Cup warm-up matches, the track offered decent seam movement. So, we expect slight help for the seamers early on, with batting becoming easier with time. 

Probable Playing XI

Perth Scorchers Women: Sophie Devine (c), Beth Mooney (w), Chloe Piparo, Maddy Green, Marizanne Kapp, Amy Louise Edgar, Alana King, Piepa Cleary, Lilly Mills, Taneale Peschel, Maddy Darke

Melbourne Stars Women: Lauren Winfield-Hill, Bess Heath, Alice Capsey, Annabel Sutherland, Kim Garth, Nicole Faltum (wk & c), Tess Flintoff, Sasha Moloney, Sophie Reid, Sophie Day, Jemimah Rodrigues

Match Prediction

Considering Perth Scorchers’ recent winning run, they are favourites to flatten the Stars and go atop the points table.

Alana King and South African import Marizanne Kapp have been in scintillating touch with the ball of late, and the two will fancy themselves to rattle the Stars’ top-order in their meeting.
