Sydney Thunder Women (ST-W) will take on Melbourne Stars Women (MS-W) in the 25th Women's Big Bash League (WBBL) 2022 game at the Eastern Oval in Ballarat on Monday, October 31. Ahead of the match, here's everything you need to know about the MS-W vs ST-W Dream11 Prediction & fantasy tips.
Both the Thunder and Stars are in the bottom half of the points table with only three points each to show for their efforts. The Thunder, despite having a decent roster, have struggled to click as a unit.
The Stars, on the other hand, have felt the absence of Meg Lanning despite Annabel Sutherland starring for them with both the bat and ball. Although both teams look evenly matched on paper, the Stars might just hold the edge as they come into the game on the back of their first win of the season.
