The 2020 WBBL Final will be played between the Melbourne Stars, who have lost just three matches for the year, and the Sydney Thunder, who have dropped five matches.

Sitting atop of the ladder all season long, the Stars are the favourites heading into the match, but the Thunder will be raring to go  after a 12-run win in their preliminary final.

Melbourne Stars Form


Proving the best side in a very even competition all season, the Stars deserve their spot on the Grand Final. They won their way through, when smashing the Perth Scorchers by seven wickets with 22 balls remaining.

In the short history of WBBL, the Stars have never made it through to a Grand Final. That is the one thing they will lack - the pressure that comes with playing in and winning a WBBL Final.

That being said, their record through the season and their finals win speaks for itself, making them the deserved favourites heading into the match.

Sydney Thunder Form


This Thunder side have the Grand Final experience, playing in and winning one in the 2015-16 season, the first ever WBBL Final.

They will take great confidence heading into the match that they are the team who will handle the pressure. Having won their last five matches, they could not be in better form heading into a final.

They were tough against Brisbane Heat, beating them by 12 runs when winning their way into this final, so their ability to pull out a big win when it counts is in zero doubt.

Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Thunder Head To Head


The last time these two faced off was earlier in the year, when the Stars won by eight wickets with 19 balls to spare. So it was nothing more than an easy watch for the Stars fans.

The Grand Final pressure is always different, and even though the Stars are deserved favourites, they will have a stronger challenge this time around.
