Match 43 of the WBBL will see the all-exciting Melbourne derby as the Renegades lock horns with the Stars in the league encounter. However, both sides have endured dismal outings this season in the league standing in the bottom half of the points table.
Melbourne Renegades are playing back-to-back matches with just one win in their previous five outings. Moreover, the Stars have played nine matches and are just a point above the rival side with their most recent match being the massive loss at the hands of Sydney Sixers.
While the Renegades have been outclassed in all departments of the game in their last few outings, they will look to redeem themselves against the arch-rivals. However, Melbourne Stars have shown glimpses of their ability this season and can hand yet another defeat in the match against the ‘Reds’.

The track at Junction Oval has favoured the team batting first by a small margin considering the history of T20 matches played. The match could be high-scoring, however, bowlers can extract a lot from the surface. The captain winning the toss may opt to bowl first if they win the toss.

Probable Top Performers from MS-W vs MR-W
Probable best batter: Lauren Winfield-Hill
Lauren Winfield-Hill has relished few good outings and has the potential to get the big runs for the side. In the nine games so far, she has scored 160 runs at a strike rate of 105.26. The batter likes to rotate strike initially and gets going once she is settled on the pitch.
Probable best bowler: Kim Garth
Kim Garth has been the most economical bowler in the side with an economy at rate of 5.59. Moreover, she is on course to make it to the list of highest wicket-takers as she has scalped eight thus far in the competition. She could be key in their battle against the Renegades.
