The final of the Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) 2020 will be played between former champions Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Stars at the North Sydney Oval in Sydney on Saturday. The action gets underway from 1:40 pm IST as Rachael Haynes and Meg Lanning to head-to-head in the big-ticket clash.
Meg Lanning has led Australia to World Cup titles in the past but she is keen on winning her maiden Big Bash League title. Lanning’s Melbourne Stars finished on top of the table with 19 points from 14 matches. They were clinical in their win over Perth Scorchers in the semi-final on Wednesday as they gunned down a 126-run target with 7 wickets to spare.
England star Natalie Sciver has been one of the most consistent performers for the Stars in the ongoing season and she came up with an all-round show in the semi-final. Annabel Sutherland, Lanning and Elyse Villani are key players to watch out for as Stars eye their maiden title in the 6th edition of the tournament.
On the other hand, Rachal Haynes will be hoping the Thunder can repeat the performance of the inaugural season when the team won the WBBL trophy. After finishing at the 3rd spot in the league stages, the Thunder stopped defending champions Brisbane Heat’s run in the semi-final to book a final berth.
