The Sydney Sixers did not undergo too many changes over the trading window. they are still largely the same team as the word in the previous season. That shows a lot of confidence in their players since the sixes finished outside the top two for the first time ever in the previous WBBL season.
They managed to win their opening game against the Adelaide strikers in what was a rain curtailed affair.
Up against them now is the Melbourne Stars team. Both of the matches scheduled for the opening weekend that the Melbourne Stars were supposed to play were rained out.
Sydney Sixers vs Melbourne Stars WBBL 2020 is going to be played at the Sydney Showground Stadium on the 31st of October 2020.
The first match that the Sydney Sixers won cannot really be looked into too much since both innings were less than 10 overs each. That was a shootout that could have gone anywhere. In fact, the Sydney Sixers were at a disadvantage since their quality becomes more apparent, the longer the match is.
They go into this next contest against the Melbourne Stars as clear favorites. A lot of the focus is going to be on Elyse Perry and whether she is going to be at her best after the serious injury she suffered at the World Cup.
Alyssa Healy continues to be one of the best T20 batters in the world and Ash Gardner is emerging as one of the best all-rounders for Australia. These three players are going to be the heart of this Sixers team but they also have a lot of support in the form of Marizanne Kapp, Dane van Niekerk, and Lisa Griffith.
There is a lot of depth in both the batting and bowling to with the experience that the Sydney Sixers have. Keeping most of the squad together also allows the Sixers to not have to worry about finding the right team composition and balance, something that most of their other challengers are going to have to do.

The Melbourne Stars would have been disappointed that the rain did not let them finish off any of their opening two matches. The Stars were in a strong position in both of those matches and could have potentially two wins to the rain.
Meg Lanning scored a rapid 50 in the first match and looked in very good touch. With Elyse Villani, Mignon du Preez, Natalie Sciver, and Annabel Sutherland in the lineup, the Stars are pretty strong in the batting department.
If Meg Lanning can continue to lead from the front, she is going to make life for every single team that she comes across difficult.
Katherine Brunt and Nate Sciver offer the Stars two reliable bowlers but the other bowling options are a bit thin. That is a potential weakness that can be exploited by a strong batting lineup like the Sydney Sixers.
If, however, the match gets affected by rain once again and is shortened then we think the Melbourne Stars have a better chance of winning since only their best players need to influence the game.

We think the team that wins the toss is going to want to bat second because of all the rain around.

The conditions in Sydney are still a bit wet. There is some rain around but the weather is better than last weekend. If we are lucky, we could get a full game otherwise we should be ready for a rain-curtailed game.
The conditions are going to be in favor of the bowlers with all the rain around. The outfield is going to be a bit heavy and difficult to score off as well.
We are going to stick with the Sydney Sixers in this match. They have much more experience in their squad and Elyse Perry is motivated to show she is back to her best after her injury. The batting form of Meg Lanning is a big threat, however, the lack of depth and the bowling frailties make the Melbourne Stars vulnerable.
Bet on the Sydney Sixers to win.
