MR-W vs ST-W Dream11: The 22nd match of the WBBL 2020 will be played between Melbourne Renegades Women and Sydney Thunder Women. Both teams have had contrasting fortunes so far this season. Melbourne Renegades are lagging at the bottom of the table while Sydney Thunder are on the top.
MR-W are yet to register a win in this competition. They have lost 3 of their 5 games while 2 games have been washed out. They have some big names in their batting but they are yet to fire. Captain Amy Satterthwaite is having an ordinary tournament so far with the bat and she will be required to lead from the front. Lizelle Lee is one of the most dangerous openers in the world but she has also gone out cheaply. The low scores of these two main batters have affected the batting form of their team. They have a good bowling attack in the form of Sophie Molineux, Georgia Wareham, Rosemary Mair and MR-W will rely upon them to get the first win of the season.
England captain Heather Knight has been in a tremendous form for ST-W this season both with the bat and the ball. Her form has played a crucial role in the way Sydney Thunder has played this season. The experience of skipper Rachel Haynes has also proved crucial in the middle overs. In the bowling department, the young Samantha Bates has been very impressive with her left arm spin. ST-W will look for another win and solidify their position at the top.

The temperature will be fairly cooler at 18 degrees. There are high chances of a bowler friendly wicket.
