Melbourne Stars are set to lock horns with Sydney Thunder on October 26, 2021. Both teams have had a rather rough start to the tournament, currently positioned at 7th and 8th place in the points table. While Melbourne Stars have managed to win 1 out of the 4 games, Sydney Thunder are yet to register a win in the 2021 edition of the tournament. Both sides will aim to make the most of it in order to climb up the table and improve their standings.
Melbourne Stars will aim to accelerate their performance in their upcoming game in order to take a lead in the tournament. Skipper Meg Lanning and Elyse Villani are top batting picks from the side. Additionally, all-rounder Annabel Sutherland and Kim Garth should be must haves in one’s fantasy team with the former being an excellent captain choice.
Sydney Thunder will hope to finally register their first win in the tournament when they next face Melbourne Stars in their upcoming game. Sammy-Jo Johnson and Smriti Mandhana are undoubtedly the best picks from the side, with the latter being a smart captain choice. Besides, Hannah Darlington and Lauren Smith’s contribution from the bowling department can fetch some fantasy points.
