Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
In what seems to be a potential mismatch in the WBBL, Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Stars square off on Saturday. As WBBL crosses the halfway mark, Adelaide Strikers finds itself in second place with five wins from eight. Buoyed by the all-round performances of Sophie Devine, Adelaide has emerged as one of the favorites for the WBBL Trophy.
On the other hand, Melbourne Stars is still searching for its second win of the season as they lie at the bottom of the WBBL Points Table. Their experienced bowling unit hasn’t been up to the mark with teams making a mockery out of them in recent games. In all likelihood, Adelaide Strikers will be considered as the overwhelming favorites for this game. Despite the dearth in quality, Melbourne Stars will hope one of their batters fires big time as they look to pull off a huge upset.
No rain is expected during the game with a bright and sunny day welcoming the two sides. A cloud cover and humidity of 29% and 36% respectively is expected at the start of the game, according to AccuWeather while the temperature will range from 20 to 22 degrees Celsius during the course of the game.
This is the first WBBL game at the venue with a fresh pitch on offer. The surface should offer some pace and bounce for the pacers to operate with while the batters should also find conditions suitable for strokeplay as the game progresses. Batting first would be ideal to get the best of the conditions upfront.
