The Women’s Big Bash League 2018-19 is going into the last stages and we will witness teams giving their one final shot for the semis. Brisbane Heats will host the Melbourne Stars at the Gabba, Brisbane in the 50th fixture of the league. Now heading into the business end of the tournament, we will see six more remaining group matches before the semi-finals begin.

Melbourne Stars will visit the Gabba in search of a victory, who are currently sitting on the sixth position. They have only managed to win four games out of their twelve and are on the sixth position with nine points. All the teams will fancy their chances in this stage of the tournament, Melbourne Stars need to win both the remaining matches and have some luck to qualify.

On the other hand, Brisbane Heats will be a bit relaxed going into the final league stage. Currently, they are sitting at third position with their seven wins out of their twelve contests. They will be looking to come back stronger after 25-runs defeat in the last game. Brisbane Heats have two more remaining games before the semis, they will travel to Cairns to face Sydney Thunder after hosting Melbourne Stars.
