MLSW vs PERW Match Prediction - Nov 18, 2022

The ongoing edition of the Women’s Big Bash League has reached an interesting stage, with 3 teams vying for the last available spot in the semifinals. Two such teams, Perth Scorchers and Melbourne Stars will face each other on Saturday, in a bid to strengthen their case for a qualification.

The Perth Scorchers are the favorites to win this match. But the Melbourne Stars have been known to spring a surprise here and there, making this an interesting game to watch. 


MLSW vs PERW Team Previews

Melbourne Stars Women

The Stars will need to win this match at any cost if they want to keep their semifinal hopes alive. The team has done well to recover, as it faced 3 consecutive losses at the start of the season, and 2 of its matches got washed away, forcing them to share points with the opposition. As a result, they are 6th on the points table, 3 points behind the Scorchers. They will be facing Brisbane Heat in the last match, and its road to the knockouts looks pretty difficult.

Batting has been the biggest letdown for the Stars this season. Hugely dependent on Annabel Sutherland and Alice Capsey, the other batter around them have failed to provide them with the required support throughout this season.

Annabel Sutherland is the top scorer as well as the top wicket-taker within the squad, while Capsey has done all the heavy lifting in the middle order. Sasha Moloney has picked up 17 wickets in 12 matches but is bowling below her abilities. The other bowlers have simply failed to have any effect on the opposition.

Perth Scorchers Women

The defending champions from the last season started their fresh attempt for the title on a strong note, winning its first 3 matches on the trot. However, the team seems to have lost its direction of late, losing 3 of its last 4 matches. As a result, its place in the top 4 isn’t yet confirmed.

Beth Mooney has only gotten better with age and is the leading run-scorer for the Perth Scorchers as well as in the league this season. She has received good support from Maddy Green, who along with Marizanne Kapp has lent stability to the otherwise average middle order. Kapp has been superb with the ball too, picking up 10 wickets so far. Sophie Devine hasn’t been in the best of forms with the bat but has compensated with her all-round abilities.

Alana King has by far been the best bowler within the squad. Lilly Mills has bowled well in patches, but more will be expected of her in the next couple of matches if the Scorchers want to qualify.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at Moe is pretty balanced, with a good bounce on offer. It will be easy to play the shots early on in the match.

However, as the match progresses, there will be some turn on offer for the spinners. Anything above 140 will be difficult to chase here. The weather is likely to remain overcast throughout the day and we might also see a few showers causing delays. The temperature is expected to hover around the 20-degree mark. 

MLSW vs PERW Betting Tips

We think that the Perth Scorchers should win this game. While they haven’t been in the best of forms this season, they do have quite a few good players who can see them through. The Stars meanwhile aren’t in the best of rhythms.
