Melbourne Stars Women Team Preview
Melbourne Stars Women are at the last of the points table without any win in their 2 matches played so far. They have not been able to make even a score of 100 in total and were easily defeated by the Sydney Sixers Women and Hobart Hurricanes Women in their first two matches. In the rain-affected first match, they were batting well and posted a total of 99 runs after losing just 1 wicket in 11 overs. But that was not enough for the opposition team. Stars Women has a very poor batting show against Hobart Hurricanes in the second match when they bundled out for just 89 runs.
Meg Lanning was looking in some fine touch as she scored 25 runs but she needs to score big in this upcoming match against Sydney Sixers Women.
Annabel Sutherland and Tess Flintoff got little work with the ball in the 2 matches and they are going to be spearheads of the bowling attack of Melbourne Stars Women.
