The WBBL returns after its mid-week break and we have the Sydney Sixers women taking on the Melbourne Stars women. This is usually seen as a match between the strongest side of the WBBL (Sydney Sixers) and the weakest (Melbourne Stars).
While this may still be true, the two teams are not too far apart on the league table at this early stage in WBBL 05.
Both teams lost their previous match and would love to get a win in this contest to get back on track.
Sydney Sixers Women vs Melbourne Stars Women WBBL 05 is going to be played at the Hurstville Oval, Sydney on the 26th of October 2019.
After a confident start to the WBBL, the Sydney Sixers were thrashed by Brisbane Heat in a return of last year’s grand final. The collapse of the batting order puts into perspective just how much the Sydney Sixers are dependent on Ellyse Perry and Alyssa Healy to get them runs.
Ashleigh Gardner seems to have adopted an ultra-aggressive approach this season so far and that may not be a very good thing. The Sixers need her to play freely but not be reckless. T20 cricket can sometimes make finding this fine line a bit difficult although Gardenr has enough experience to be able to adapt quickly.
Erin Burns and four and Marizanne Kapp at five is the end of the batting lineup. This means that the Sydney Sixers cannot afford any early wickets otherwise they could struggle. We think the batting should be back to being dominant against the Melbourne Stars bowling attack, though.
Ellyse Perry is going to lead with the ball in hand as well. She was unusually expensive against Brisbane Heat after an excellent start to WBBL 05. Marizanne Kapp, Sarah Aley, and Ashleigh Gardenr have been quite impressive with the ball as well.
The Sydney Sixers entered WBBL 2019 as the team to beat and one bad performance does not make it a bad side.
Alyssa Healy, Ellyse Perry, Ashleigh Gardner, Erin Burns, Dane van Niekerk, Marizanne Kapp, Maddy Darke, Lauren Smith, Sarah Aley, Hayley Silver-Holmes, Jodie Hicks.
Two losses in two matches to the Hobart Hurricanes are the worst possible start for the Stars. The Hurricanes were considered to be a weak team as compared to some of the other sides and not being able to grab a win against them could cost the Stars heavily.
For the Melbourne Stars to be able to pull off a win in this match two things need to happen. Its bowlers need to be able to rip out the Sydney Sixers top-order and the Melbourne Stars batters need to find some form very quickly.
Neither is impossible but not very likely either.
The Melbourne Stars bowling is one of the weaker ones in this edition of the WBBL. Annabel Sutherland, Erin Osborne, Tess Flintoff, and Kristen Beams are honest triers but they are not going to giving too many people any sleepless nights.
The batting has some exciting players for sure. Lizelle Lee, Mignon du Preez, Elyse Villani, and Katey Martin. All of these girls are excellent batters but have struggled to convert their starts into big scores.
Against a good bowling attack and a side that is going to put them under pressure continuously, the senior batters are the ones that will have to take responsibility.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first

The weather is expected to be very good for cricket in Sydney and there should be a decent amount of support for the home side as well. The pitch is going to be flat and good for batting but as is typical with soil found in the area, there will be some spin on offer.
We have not abandoned the Sydney Sixers just because they have lost one match. We think they are going to bounce back strongly and re-impose their superiority on WBBL. The Melbourne Stars struggled to beat the Hobart Hurricanes and are now up against much tougher opposition.
Bet on the Sydney Sixers to win.
