Match Details

The Final of the WBBL 2020 will be played between Melbourne Stars and Sydney Thunder at the North Sydney Oval, Sydney.

This match is scheduled to start at 01:40 PM IST (07:10 AM local). This match can be streamed live on Sony LIV.


The mega finale of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) is here. Two teams led by Australia’s two of the most experienced and superstar players, Meg Lanning and Rachel Haynes, will look to lift the trophy by giving it their all in the title clash. The Stars defeated the Perth Scorchers pretty comfortably continuing to stamp their authority. They chased a paltry 126 in the 17th over itself even as Alana King was named the Player of the Match.

The Sydney Thunder, on the other hand, pulled off a heist choking the defending champions Brisbane Heat in the last five overs. The Heat lost six wickets for just 12 runs and 19 balls to botch up a well controlled chase and the credit has to be given to the Thunder for keeping their nerves when it mattered. Rachel Haynes was the star with the bat as her 40-odd runs proved to be crucial in the end.
