MS W vs MR W Dream11: It’s time for the Melbourne derby at the WBBL 2020. The in-form Melbourne Stars Women are up against the off-color Melbourne Renegades Women in the 39th match of the WBBL. MS-W have been in a terrific touch this season and are looking quite comfortable securing the top position. Currently, they look like defeating any team of the competition. With skipper Meg Lanning leading from the front with the most runs for her side, the batting order looks a safe one. It’s not only her, but Mignon de Preez and Nat Sciver have also played some crucial cameos with the bat. Sciver has been the highest wicket taker so far this season. The inclusion of Katherine Brunt after the injury has further boosted the Stars bowling line-up and they look settled to unsettle any batting side.
Meanwhile, MR-W are having a forgettable season so far, very much opposite to that of the Stars. They are lying at the bottom of the table. With 6 losses for them so far, their morale must be very low. One more loss can get them to the brink of getting knocked out of the semis race. Skipper Amy Satterthwaite has been unable to get going with the bat. Not only her runs, but her low strike rates have affected the batting performances of the team. Sophie Molineux has been impressive in the bowling department, but she has lacked support from the other end. The Renegades will have to play out of their skin to win this game and keep their hopes alive.

Injury update, unavailability- Renegades have already lost Georgia Wareham which has clearly affected their performance. Other than that, all their players are available for selection.
Expected team changes- The Renegades brought in young Amy Yates in the last game in the place of Erin Fazackerley but she did not get a chance to bat. So they are likely to go with the same eleven in this match.

Melbourne Stars Women look the clear favorites to win this game given their recent form. They have won their last 6 games in a row and have dominated their opponents in each game. The players know their roles well and they are executing them as better as anybody. Even if their main batter like Meg Lanning fails, there are other ones like Du Preez and Nat Sciver in the middle order who have shown their ability to take the team to a decent score. The bowling line-up too looks pumped with the return of Katherine Brunt. Renegades, on the other hand look like the team totally down on confidence. They could score 122 runs in the last game for the loss of just 3 wickets. They have already lost 6 in a row and will need a miracle to get past Stars in the MS-W vs MR-W Today Match Prediction. So to make a good fantasy side, choose more players from the Stars eleven.
Meg Lanning- Lanning would be one of the first picks in any fantasy eleven. She is one of the most consistent run getters in world cricket right now and this season has been no different. She is the top run scorer for her side and has led the team from the front. She didn’t score runs in the last game, so she will be hungry to make runs in this game.
Career: Runs 2859, Avg. 36
Lanning in WBBL 2020: Runs 257, Avg. 64
Mignon du Preez- Du Preez is having a memorable season so far with the bat. Batting at No.3, she has scored runs on a consistent basis and has been one of the reasons for Stars batting doing so well. In the last game too, she scored a match winning half century when skipper Lanning failed.
Career: Runs 1701, Avg. 22
Du Preez in WBBL 2020: Runs 181, Avg. 30
Nat Sciver- The English batter is a middle order mainstay but she has been the highest wicket taker of this season so far. She is yet to play a good innings with the bat, but she has won her team games with her gentle medium pace.
Career: Runs 1535, Bat Avg. 25.58, Wkts 62, Bowl Avg. 19
Sciver in WBBL 2020: Runs 69, Bat Avg. 23, Wkts 14, Bowl Avg. 9
Sophie Molineux- The left arm spinning all-rounder is doing her best to save her team from getting knocked out but is lacking the support from the other end. She has been promoted to open the batting, but her performance with the ball is something that can be looked upon while making MS-W vs MR-W Dream11 Prediction.
Career: Wkts 23, Bowl Avg. 21
Molineux in WBBL 2020: Runs 140, Bat Avg. 20, Wkts 9, Bowl Avg. 17
Amy Satterthwaite- The Renegades skipper is having a forgettable season so far, both from her individual perspective as well as the team’s perspective. Her low strike rates has been a cause of concern for her team, but she has the experience to make a comeback and make runs in this crucial match
Career- Runs 1595, Bat Avg. 21, Wkts 24, Bowl Avg. 22
Satterthwaite in WBBL 2020: Runs 126, Bat Avg. 21
Rosemary Mair- The young New Zealand fast bowler had a very good tour of the Australia recently before the WBBL. She has bowled decently this season but would like to get a notable performance under her belt.
Career: Wkts 9, Bowl Avg. 23
Mair in WBBL 2020: Wkts 5, Bowl Avg. 23
Alana King- The uncapped legspinner has been a star performer for the Stars so far. She wasn’t in the starting eleven from the first game but has made big strides to guarantee herself a place in the eleven.
King in WBBL 2020: Wkts 6, Bowl Avg. 14
Lizelle Lee- The blistering South African opener had been given a place at No.4 a couple of games earlier. Her experience and the ability to attack the bowlers at will are what the Renegades need in this important game. If she gets going, she can give a tough time to the Stars bowling line-up.
Career: Runs 1664, Avg. 25
Lee in WBBL 2020: Runs 105, Avg. 15
