Updated - Nov 9, 2020 5:14 pm
The 29th match of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) 2020 will be played between Melbourne Stars Women and the Adelaide Strikers Women at the Blacktown International Sportspark in Sydney.
This match is scheduled to start at 02:30 PM Local Time (09:00 AM IST) and it will be streamed live on Sony Six and Sony Six HD.
Given some of the renowned names they have got in their squad, it was always said that Melbourne Stars will pack a punch. However, they perhaps have exceeded all expectations so far. We are halfway into the league phase and the Stars are yet to lose a single game.
They have won 4 out of the 7 games they have played so far, while 3 matches were washed out. They will be the favourites to win tomorrow’s game, but it will be foolish to write Adelaide Strikers off. They have won 3 out of their 7 matches and are currently sitting at the top half of the table. They are coming into this game on the back of the brilliant win against Melbourne Renegades.
