STA vs SIX Key Players
At 33, Trent Boult begins his journey as a freelancer. His first game went well from a personal point of view as he took the new ball and also picked up two wickets. With the Stars losing though, he will have a greater role as Stars look to get on the board.
With Matthew Wade nearing retirement, Australia’s hunt for a wicket-keeper batter is likely to take more substance. Josh Phillipe is an exciting young talent, and has done well in the Big Bash League over the past few seasons.
