MS-W vs SS-W Dream11: The WBBL 2020 is into its final stages now and it’s time for the second last game of the league stage. It’s the clash between Australia’s captain and vice-captain. The Melbourne Stars Women are in readiness to face Sydney Sixers Women in the 55th match of the season. MS-W have been highly professional and has easily been the best team of the season so far. They have dominated their opponents in most of the games. Skipper Meg Lanning has led the way with the bat and Mignon du Preez has given her a perfect company. With the experienced Elyse Villani at the top, they boast a formidable to order. Not to forget the bowling attack, the return of Katherine Brunt from injury has given them the much needed boost in the fast bowling. Though they lost their last match, but they still look a formidable team.
SS-W, meanwhile have had a roller coaster season so far. They are out of the semis contention but will look to end the season on a high. The last game that they lost to the Renegades would certainly have lowered their spirits. They dropped several catches which proved costly in the end. Ellyse Perry has been scoring consistently but her strike rate hasn’t helped her team’ chances. Alyssa Healy’s innings in the last game will give them the confidence. Marizanne Kapp has been impressive with both bat and ball. The Sixers will look to end their season on a high and surprise the powerful looking Stars.

The Stars hold the edge based on their current form. They will look to take the confidence going into the important semifinal game. They have already confirmed their top of the table finish and have produced a no. of match winners this season. Everybody in the team have played their roles to perfection. With probably the best batting order and an in-form bowling line-up, they look like a better side. Sixers, though have been a spot of bother after a decent start to the season. They lost 5 matches in a row which clearly dented their spirits. They have some excellent internationals in their side and they will require them to take the responsibility in the MS-W vs SS-W Today Match Prediction. The last league match between these two teams was abandoned due to rain.
Meg Lanning- Batting at the top, Lanning has been a consistent performer for Australia for years now. This season has been no different and she has been getting runs fluently for the Stars. She has led from the front and will look to continue her good form with the bat. The rare duck from her last innings will only increase her hunger to score runs.
Career: Runs 2859, Avg. 36
Lanning in WBBL 2020: Runs 381, Avg. 42
Annabel Sutherland- Sutherland started the tournament slowly but played a brilliant match winning innings against the Hurricanes which would have given her confidence. The youngster’s all-round skills can be crucial in this game for the Stars.
Career: Runs 32, Bat Avg. 16, Wkts 2, Bowl Avg. 35
Sutherland in WBBL 2020: Runs 140, Bat Avg. 20
Elyse Villani- Another Stars batter who has been in a decent touch this season, Villani’s performance has been overshadowed a bit. But she has played consistently well along with Lanning at the top. Both she and Lanning have been the strength of Stars this season.
Career: Runs 1369, Avg. 28.5
Villani in WBBL 2020: Runs 296, Avg. 29.60
Ellyse Perry- Perry has been scoring consistently this season with a brilliant average but the lack to push on to score some quick runs has hurt her team’s chances. She has been picking up some wickets with the ball too. Her world class ability with both bat and ball makes her a topmost pick in the MS-W vs SS-W Dream11 Prediction.
Career: Runs 1218, Bat Avg. 28.32, Wkts 114, Bowl Avg. 19
Perry in WBBL 2020: Runs 351, Bat Avg. 51, Wkts 8, Bowl Avg. 8
Alyssa Healy- It seems like Healy has started getting some form at the right time. With just 2 half-centuries to her name in 11 games, she has struggled for consistency. But she is a match winner and proved that in the last game where she scored a blistering half-century. She is a devastating batter and if she stays on the wicket, she can easily change the course of the match.
Career: Runs 228, Avg. 23
Healy in WBBL 2020: Runs 291, Avg. 26.45
Marizanne Kapp- Kapp has been one of the frontline contenders for MVP of the season. Whatever roles she has been given this tournament, she has fulfilled that to perfection. Not only with the bat, but with the ball too, she has been picking up wickets.
Career: Runs 946, Bat Avg. 19.30, Wkts 58, Bowl Avg. 20.65
Kapp in WBBL 2020: Runs 192, Bat Avg. 38.40, Wkts 10, Bowl Avg. 21
Alana King- The young legspinner has been a find for the Stars this season. In an inexperienced spin bowling attack, she has picked up a lot of crucial wickets in the middle with a terrific economy. She has also produced some quick cameos with the bat.
King in WBBL 2020: Wkts 11, Bowl Avg. 16, Runs 62, SR. 200
Dane van Niekerk- With both bat and the ball, she can be a useful cricketer in this format. Though she is having an average tournament but she can be a real match winner on her day.
Career: Runs 1839, Bat Avg. 29, Wkts 63, Bowl Avg. 21
Van Niekerk in WBBL 2020: Runs 163, Bat Avg. 18, Wkts 9, Bowl Avg. 29
