Sydney Sixers missed out a spot in the knockouts by the most slender of margins in the previous edition. The Sixers bagged 14 points and finished at the fifth spot in the league. Melbourne Stars Women, on the other hand, had a season to remember.
The Stars featured in the finals but fell short to Sydney Thunder by seven wickets. Melbourne Stars will be determined to go the distance this time around and will be keen on starting off the tournament on a positive note. Nonetheless, given the quality in personal Sydney Sixers have in their locker, they will be expected to put in a shift.

Melbourne Stars are touted as the favorites heading into the game, given their consistent run of performance last season, as well as the depth in quality in their side. Melbourne finished as the runners-up last season and will be aiming to claim the trophy this time around. However, Sydney Sixers, too have some exciting prospects who have been recently added to their squad and can play a major role in their team progressing further forward.
Alyssa Healy has the reputation of going big in the power play overs, and can cause some damage if she sticks around long enough, Shafali Verma’s inclusion in the team adds all the more dynamism, while, star all-rounder Ellyse Perry can contribute significantly in both departments.
Ellyse Perry’s addition in the fantasy team brings in reliability, as well as stability across all departments. Perry was in fine form in the previous season of the WBBL, as she ended up scoring 390 runs, while, also bagging eight wickets with the ball in hand.
