MLSW vs MLRW Team Previews

Melbourne Stars Women

The Stars will go into this fixture on the back of consecutive victories over the Perth Scorchers Women and Brisbane Heat Women. But those wins have come too late, as the Stars only have five wins in 13 attempts in total to show for their latest WBBL campaign.

Meg Lanning and Alice Capsey are the Stars' leading run-scorers this tournament. They are within a single run of each other. Lanning has 284 runs in 11 innings to Capsey's 283 in 13. Annabel Sutherland is not far behind with 252 in 13. But the trio have lacked enough support from the rest of the batting order.

Sophie Day and Sutherland have been an outstanding combination with the ball. They shared 50 wickets this WBBL season. Day, with 27, and Sutherland, with 23, are the leading wicket-takers across all teams this tournament. Their combo of left-arm spin with right-arm seam has worked well.

The Melbourne Stars Women have never won a WBBL title. They certainly won't be able to this season. But they can effectively start their preparation for the next tournament with a win - or at least a strong showing - against the Melbourne Renegades Women here.

Melbourne Renegades Women

The Renegades have collected just one win in their last five WBBL matches. That lone victory was against the Heat, which was otherwise flanked by defeats to the Hobart Hurricanes Women and Stars. Overall, the Renegades have won only two matches this WBBL season - and are struggling to move away from the bottom of the points table.

Harmanpreet Kaur and Georgia Wareham have been their standout players with the bat. Kaur has struck 320 runs in 12 innings this tournament. Wareham has 281 in 11. Wareham, alongside Tammy Beaumont, has been the Renegades' most prolific six hitter this WBBL season, too.

The Renegades haven't come close to the Stars' wicket-taking success. The Renegades have three bowlers with 12 wickets each this WBBL season. They are Wareham, Sarah Coyte and Hayley Matthews. Wareham, indeed, has been among the best all-rounders in the 2023 Women's Big Bash League.

The Renegades, like the Stars, have never won the WBBL - and are not going to this season. What they can do, though, is avenge defeat to their Melbourne rivals earlier this tournament. This should be an intriguing tussle at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

MLSW vs MLRW Toss Prediction

Matches have been played at other Melbourne venues this WBBL season, but this will be the first at the famed MCG.

The toss-winning captain will likely stick to the recent trend in Melbourne and other Australian cities - and choose to bowl first if victorious at the toss.

Teams have generally preferred to chase rather than set targets this season, occasionally regardless of conditions.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch will be fresh and potentially full of runs.

The MCG is a big ground, but the boundaries will likely be brought in. A first-innings total of 150-plus should be competitive.

The match will be played under floodlights and the spinners could get extra skid off the surface.

Rain is forecast in Melbourne on Friday and Saturday. We could have a shortened fixture here. This would likely suit the team batting second, too.

MLSW vs MLRW Betting Tips

The Stars are, at least, one position higher than the Renegades in the 2023 WBBL standings.

The Renegades have not beaten the Stars in the WBBL in two years. This includes losing to them earlier this season.

The Stars are priced as 1.80 favourites to beat the 2.10 underdogs Renegades in this match.
