Date and Day: 26 October 2019, Saturday.
Match 10 – Sydney Sixers Women v/s Melbourne Stars Women.
Time: 8:30 AM IST.
Venue: Hurstville Oval, Sydney.
Melbourne Stars are off to a bad start in the tournament losing both the games on the trot. Their top order has failed in both the games and this has left them being dominated by their opponents. Sydney Sixers who began their season with a thumping win against the Sydney Thunders then failed to pose any challenge to the Brisbane Heat in their next game.
Melbourne Stars would like their South African duo of Lizelle Lee and Mignon du Preez to make an impression upfront with the bat and create a chance for their team. Erin Osborne has been bowling well but needs support for her other team members.
For Sydney Sixers, Consecutive games on Consecutive day did affect as they just didn’t bring their best game on the second matchday. While they have had a good six-day break after that they would want to get back to winning ways and they would want their captain Ellyse Perry to lead the way with both bat and ball.
