It was only a matter of time for Adelaide Strikers to get back to the winning ways. They did so in style by racking up back to back wins by defeating Melbourne Renegades and Brisbane Heat. They have a stiff challenge up next as they face another team from Melbourne, the Stars, in their upcoming contest. The Stars are yet to be defeated in the tournament and are flying high at the top of the points table. The match between the two sides is to be played on 10th November at Blacktown International Sportspark, Sydney.
With half the league stage already done and dusted, Melbourne Stars is the team that has played the least number of completed matches but have still managed to secure as many wins as the Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers. Consequently, they are placed at the top of the table and have a terrific net run-rate of 1.757.
In the history of the tournament, Melbourne Stars have a record that they wouldn't really be proud of. However, they have been terrific in the tournament so far and will want to rewrite history going forward. They started their campaign with three back to back washouts, but all their four wins thereafter have been dominating.
Stars' superb run of form has largely been on the back of the superb form of Meg Lanning. She has already scored four fifties in five innings and stopping her seems to be difficult for any bowling unit. Apart from Lanning, its the leg-spin of Alana King that has made a hefty difference. She wasn't in the squad originally but has made the best use of the chances she got by picking up six wickets in three matches.
While most of the contribution has come from a few players, the Stars have only a few holes to plug. They seem to be doing exceedingly well at the moment and would probably need a colossal failure to get the wrong result. The Stars certainly seem to be the team to beat going into the second half of the tournament.

Adelaide Strikers got off to a flying start in the tournament as they discarded Hobart Hurricanes by a mammoth margin of 84 runs in their first match. However, they struggled to keep that momentum on as they lost their subsequent matches by hefty margins. With two consecutive wins in their last two matches, they now stand at the fourth position on the ladder and look good to consolidate their position here. Their net run-rate, as well, seems pretty reasonable.
In totality, the Strikers haven't done too bad, but their over-reliance on a couple of players is certainly visible. Laura Wolvaardt has done exceedingly well in the batting department and Darcie Brown has been superb with the ball. However, apart from those two players, the Strikers have lacked consistent performances in the tournament so far. They did well as a unit in their last two encounters and will be looking to be consistent with their performances.
Apart from the consistency or lack thereof, there are a few glaring issues that the Strikers would want to fix. While Amanda Jade Wellington is yet to mark her mark with the ball, their other spinners haven't got a chance to bowl a lot. Stafanie Taylor and Madeline Penna have bowled only nine overs between them. Besides, Tahlia McGrath and their middle-order is yet to get things their way.
All in all, a lot went wrong for the Strikers in the earlier part of the tournament, but they now seem to be getting back to their potential with a back to back wins. With surfaces slowing down, their spinners would have to bowl accurately and as per their potential. If that happens, we don't see why the Strikers can get back to the winning ways.

Check out the Dream11 fantasy team lineup for the 29th Women's Big Bash League match, which is to be played between Melbourne Stars Women and Adelaide Strikers Women. Don't forget to check back the latest updated team right after the toss.
It's the beginning of the second phase of the tournament and both sides will want to resume their campaign with a win. On paper, the Strikers seem to be having a more complete unit, but the way Melbourne Stars are playing, disregarding them will not be an option. Meg Lanning is single-handedly winning the matches for the Stars and beating them would not be easy. Also, the Stars have been unbeaten in the tournament so far and will be tough to get past. For those reasons, we expect the Stars to emerge on top in the upcoming encounter as well.
