The 55th match of WBBL 2020 will be played between Melbourne Stars Women and Sydney Sixers Women at North Sydney Oval, Sydney.
The match is scheduled to begin at 01:45 pm local time (08:15 pm IST).
Table-toppers Melbourne Stars women take on the Sydney Sixers Women on the final match day of the league stage. The Melbourne Stars are doing damage that shouldn’t bother them much. They still look like a strong team as their batting order once again progressed after a rare failure by captain Lanning. However, he did not bowl as per the situation and made things easier for the Heat batsmen.
On the other hand, the Sydney Sixers Woman desperately needed a win in their last match, but their bowlers failed to play at the most crucial time. Healy scored a stunning 63 off 38 balls, including a few runs for Ellis Perry. However, his bowling failed to deliver at the most crucial time and he lost the huge match by 6 wickets with 5 balls remaining. They currently sit fifth with 12 points and are out of almost one game of the tournament.
