Match 19 – Melbourne Stars Women v/s Perth Scorchers Women.
Time: 1:25 PM IST.
Venue: W.A.C.A. Ground, Perth.
The Perth Scorchers team will come to W.A.C.A. ground on Saturday in very great confidence after having won a game against the Melbourne Renegades on Friday. While Melbourne Stars need to get their team going and get out of the downward spiral their team has been on.
Melbourne Stars have lost all their four games in the tournament so far and the way they have been performing the road to the knockout stage looks a lot blurry. They have failed to put up a substantial total with the bat may it be while setting a target or while chasing a target down. Their bowling line up also lacks the x-factor and has failed to pick up wickets and bowl an opposition out.
Perth Scorchers made full use of winning the toss in the last game, with rain on the radar opting to bowl first was a very wise decision. In the game that saw many breaks being taken due to rain, the Perth Scorchers got over line mainly due to their captain Meg Lanning who scored an unbeaten 44 runs off just 24 deliveries, scoring as many as 28 runs in the last 8 deliveries of her innings. They have now won both the games while chasing and look comfortable while chasing.
Weather and Pitch Report
The weather forecast for the match-day is cloudy but no rain is expected. The batters had a merry on Friday but the score on Saturday could be below 140 runs and Perth scorchers win is on the cards.
Head to Head
In the previous five games, The Melbourne Stars women’s team has beaten Perth Scorchers women’s team twice while losing three games. Perth scorchers will be happy to play Melbourne Stars and build on a winning momentum
