Key Players

Glenn Maxwell

Glenn Maxwell has been great for the Stars in the continuing season of the BBL. He has been the darling batter for his team in the tournament. The veteran has collected 175 runs from five games at an average of 35 and most significantly, a strike rate of 150.86. the batting all-rounder is the kind of player who very seldom does not make an effect in the match. He already has a century in BBL 2021-22 season.

Mitchell Swepson

Mitchell Swepson has recreated only two matches and has discovered his feet for the Heat in the championship. In two matches, the leg-spinner has gathered up three wickets, most notably at an economy rate of 7.25. The Stars’ batters ought to play him with a lot of carefulness. Mark Steketee both took 3 wickets in their last match and we are reinforcing Steketee to be the highest wicket-taker against Melbourne Stars.

Team News

  • There will be a clamour for shifts from Melbourne Stars’ champions after two losses in a row. However, in truth, most of the participants put in proper displays in the previous game but were defeated by an incredible opening batting partnership. The Stars have a completely fit squad to choose from.
  • Despite an offensive bowling interpretation from Rashid Khan, Brisbane Heat gathered up a strong 39 run win over Adelaide Strikers in their earlier game. They have a strong middle order who can take out a match from any team in this arrangement. It would be a big shock to see any changes in the XI for this game.
