Preview

Melbourne Stars women’s team is the only women’s team that has failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the Women’s Big Bash League even once and have finished second to last in the last two editions of the tournament. While Hobart Hurricanes who qualified for the knockout stages of the tournament in the first two editions of the tournament have fared pretty badly in the last two editions finishing last in the points table.

The South African duo of Lizelle Lee and Mignon Du Preez will be the mainstay of the Melbourne stars lineup along with Elyse Villani. While their Batting looks in good hands their bowling department could face a tough task. It could all depend on how well these teams bat as both the teams have a strong batting unit.

Going forward in the tournament the lack of experienced bowling options could haunt Melbourne Stars and Hobart Hurricanes.
