MS-W vs ST-W T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, WBBL 2022
Melbourne Stars Women will take on Sydney Thunder Women at the Eastern Oval, Ballarat. Match 25 of the 2022 WBBL will get underway at 15:00 local time on Sunday 30th October.
Melbourne Stars Women
After taking three points from their last two games, Melbourne Stars Women have started to climb the table and are currently in sixth place. They picked up their first win of the season with a six wicket and 15 balls remaining victory over Melbourne Renegades Women on Saturday.
Annabel Sutherland was the batting hero against Melbourne Renegades Women as she hit 42 not out from 48 balls. The international opening pair of Lauren Winfield-Hill and Jemimah Rodrigues made scores of nine and eight in the Melbourne Derby but both are expected to deliver big scores in the tournament.
The win over Melbourne Renegades Women was setup by an excellent team bowling performance and only Tess Flintoff and Alice Capsey did not take a wicket each. Left arm spinner Sophie Day took 4-19 as she went through the middle-order batters.
Melbourne Stars Women look to have turned a corner after losing three successive games earlier in the campaign.
Sydney Thunder Women
Melbourne Stars Women are one place above Sydney Thunder Women thanks to a slightly superior net-run-rate. Thunder have won one and lost four so far in the 2022 WBBL with their only victory coming against Perth Scorchers in Match 14.
Sydney Thunder Women hit 139-7 in their last match against Brisbane Heat Women with only three of their batters making double figure scores. Opener Phoebe Litchfield top scored with 50 runs from 38 balls for her second successive tournament half-century.
New Zealand pace bowler Lea Tahuhu had only taken one wicket in this tournament before the game against Brisbane Heat Women where he took 3-31. Sammy Jo Johnson and Lauren Smith were the other wicket takers for Thunder in Match 18.
Although they lost their last match, Sydney Thunder Women have lost only one of their last three.
