With a much-needed win over Perth Scorchers, Melbourne Stars continue to hang in the tournament, albeit by a thin thread. They are still at the bottom of the ladder and will be looking to get in the mix of other teams by getting another win in their upcoming contest. They are set to face Sydney Sixers in their next contest, which is to be played at Perth on 3rd November.
Sydney Sixers were the best team last year and are arguably the best this year, but they haven't started off like one. After their stupendous win over Sydney Thunder, the Sixers announced themselves with grace, but failed to build on to the momentum as they suffered an embarrasing defeat at the hands of Brisbane Heat in their second match.
They bounced back to form with a much-needed win in their previous two matches, which were against Melbourne Renegaddes and Melbourne Stars. They are now placed at the third spot on the points table and another win will take them to the top spot, provided the other results go their way.
Although they were nowehere near their best, they somehow managed to sneak past Melbourne Renegades in their last encounter. Their bowlers set up the win for them as they restricted the Renegades to just 120. Chasing that total shouldn't have been as difficult as it happened to be, but they'd be glad that they eventually got over the line. They chased the total down with four wickets in hand on the second-last delivery of their innings.

Four matches and four losses - such was the fate of Melbourne Stars in the Women's Big Bash League before today. Lizelle Lee scored an immaculate hundred, the first of this year's WBBL, to take Melbourne Stars to an unexpected victory over Perth Scorchers.
This win for the Stars would certainly lift their mood as they appeared to be low on confidence after facing four consecutive defeats. Lizelle Lee was fantastic as her 63-ball hundred took Stars to a competitive total. While their total of 155 was nowhere near a match-winning one, their bowlers did brilliantly to restrict a potent Scorchers lineup to just 135.
It was probably the confidence, which bowlers derived from Lee's knock, that helped their bowlers come out and be at their best against the likes of Meg Lanning and Natalie Sciver. With both bowlers and batsmen looking in fine form, beating Melbourne Stars is no longer going to be easy as it was in the earlier part of the tournament.

With a win against the Scorchers, the Stars have not only managed to keep themselves in the hunt, they have also cut the tournament wide open. All the eight teams are well in with a chance to qualify for the top four. The Stars will be looking to strengthen their chance with another win in their next match and they certainly have the momentum going for them. The Sixers, on the other hand, are a better team on paper and with a strong batting unit, the Sixers go in as firm favorites to emerge on top in the upcoming game as well.
