The Thunder will face off Stars tomorrow noon at Lavington Sports Oval. They have played two matches so far in the recently started WBBL, defeating the Melbourne Renegades in a high-scoring match on Saturday and then losing to Sixers by 6 wickets on Saturday.
The Stars, on the contrary, have only played 1 game and encountered a heavy defeat to the Sixers, losing by 86 runs. Both the teams will face each other for the first time in this season. Stars and Thunders came face to face twice in the last season, with both the teams securing one win each. It will be interesting to watch who takes an edge this time.
