The Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades will lock horns in a crucial fixture for both sides at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne on Saturday. The Renegades are coming here on the back of successive defeats and are placed at second last on the points table as they have won only two of the seven matches so far. The Stars, on the other hand, have been outplayed by the Adelaide Strikers in their last match. They began with two wins on the trot but failed to continue the momentum.

With four wins and four losses after eight matches, the Stars are placed at 5th on the table. In the Melbourne derby, the Stars will be taking the field with an unchanged line-up yet again. As many as ten players have featured in all the eight matches for them. Renegades will have Sophie Molineux coming back to the squad for this derby. The all-rounder was rested from the match against the Sixers on Thursday to keep her fresh ahead of the weekend.

Match Details:

The 34th match of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) will be played between Melbourne Renegades and Melbourne Stars at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne.

The match starts at 2:50 PM local time (3:50 AM GMT) (9:20 AM IST).

Streaming of this game will be available on cricket.com.au, Cricket Australia Live apps and WBBL Facebook Page.

Pitch Condition/Report:

This WBBL game is expected to be played on a better pitch as it will be the first of the doubleheader matches on Saturday at the Docklands. The track here stays on the slower side and the three WBBL games played since the start of 2017 were won by chasing sides where scores were less than 130.

Squads:

Melbourne Renegades:

Amy Satterthwaite (C), Maitlan Brown, Jess Duffin, Claire Koski, Erica Kershaw, Emma Inglis, Sophie Molineux, Molly Strano, Lea Tahuhu, Tayla Vlaeminck, Georgia Wareham, Courtney Webb, Dannielle Wyatt.

Melbourne Stars:

Kristen Beams (C), Elly Donald, Mignon du Preez, Georgia Elwiss, Nicole Faltum, Holly Ferling, Nicola Hancock, Alana King, Lizelle Lee, Katie Mack, Erin Osborne, Angela Reakes, Annabel Sutherland.

Probable XI:

Melbourne Renegades:

Amy Satterthwaite (C), Dannielle Wyatt, Sophie Molineux, Maitlan Brown, Jess Duffin, Claire Koski, Emma Inglis, Molly Strano, Lea Tahuhu, Tayla Vlaeminck, Georgia Wareham.

Melbourne Stars:

Kristen Beams (C), Mignon du Preez, Georgia Elwiss, Holly Ferling, Nicola Hancock, Alana King, Lizelle Lee, Katie Mack, Erin Osborne, Angela Reakes, Annabel Sutherland.

Power Picks:

The Renegades’ players Dannielle Wyatt and Sophie Molineux have failed to make a strong impact in the season so far. Both the players have struggled for consistency and so did the Renegades’ results. The duo would be hoping to put a better show and power his team in this crucial stage of the tournament.

Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:

Annabel Sutherland and Erin Osborne are the first preferred multiplier options. Mignon Du Preez and Sophie Molineux can be ideal for vice-captain roles. Lizelle Lee also can be an option among the consistent performers.

Best Playing XI:

Lizelle Lee, Dannielle Wyatt, Angela Reakes, Mignon du Preez, Sophie Molineux, Annabel Sutherland, Erin Osborne, Alana King, Molly Strano, Lea Tahuhu, Nicola Hancock.

Risky Playing XI:

Lizelle Lee, Dannielle Wyatt (VC), Angela Reakes, Mignon du Preez, Amy Satterthwaite, Maitlan Brown, Sophie Molineux (C), Annabel Sutherland, Nicola Hancock, Alana King, Molly Strano.

Expert Advice:

If Sophie Molineux, Annabel Sutherland and Molly Strano are to be picked, only one among Satterthwaite, Wyatt and Du Preez can be part of the final XI. With the Renegades’ captain Satterthwaite being the costliest among the lot, a gamble can be taken.

Probable Winners:

Melbourne Stars are expected to edge past the Renegades based on their strengths.
