Melbourne Stars for some reason did not seem to turn up this season. They lost Glenn Maxwell before the season and their tournament derailed from there on. Thunder though have a crucial match coming up. They need to win here and hope Brisbane lose. Incase Brisbane win though, Thunder are all but out as their run-rate is far too behind Melbourne Renegades who are also on fourteen points.

STA vs THU Key Players

Luke Wood

Luke Wood has done well to make a mark on the tournament. He got an England cap earlier and is living in the moment now as he is enjoying his time as Trent Boult’s partner with the new-ball for the Melbourne Stars

Chris Green

With Sangha out, Chris Green has more responsibility on him. He is a pretty talented spinner who has not really got his dues up until now but with the spotlight likely to be on him more he could finally step up and out of the shadows.
