Match Preview

Adelaide Strikers Women vs Melbourne Stars Women: The Womens Big Bash League 2022 will resume after a one-day break. Adelaide Strikers Women will face Melbourne Stars Women in the tournament’s 26th game. Blacktown International Sportspark in Sydney will host this fixture on Wednesday, 2nd November 2022.

Adelaide Strikers are laying strong at number 3 on the points table with 4 wins out of 6 games. Along with this, they also have a healthy net run rate. If they win this, their spot in the semis will be pretty much fixed. They last faced the defending champions, the Perth Scorchers, and won the match comprehensively. In a low-scoring game, they were called in to chase a total of 112. After struggling initially, they picked up quickly and won the game in the penultimate over.

Melbourne Stars, on the other hand, are struggling in this tournament. They have won just one game in the entire tournament. The last game against the Sixers was washed away due to rain. The batters have been inconsistent throughout. The time is now for them to step up as a team if they want to have a chance in the semi-finals.
