Key Player

Tom Curran                                                       

The Sixers’ lone wicket-takers in their previous game against the Hobart Hurricanes were Englishmen Chris Jordan and Tom Curran. Tom Curran has a penchant for dismantling partnerships and is also a competent hitter lower down the order. In this league’s first three games, he has taken five wickets and scored 33 runs with the bat.

Andre Russell

Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, and Andre Russell were the Stars’ leading scorers in their last match against the Thunder. Andre Russell is impossible to keep out of the game. In the winning case against Sydney Thunder, he scored 42* runs off 21 balls. He has scored 59 runs without being dismissed in two BBL encounters.

Team News

  • Melbourne Stars have won two games in a row against Sydney Thunder, putting them back on the map. They might be about to contend again after a disappointing season last year.
  • Josh Philippe and Moises Henriques continued to bat well, but the bowling attack must be able to mix tight bowling with wicket-taking in this match.

Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Sixers Match Tips

When the Sydney Sixers thrashed the Melbourne Stars to begin this year’s season, it was one of the most memorable triumphs in Big Bash League history, and they will look to make it seven consecutive wins over the Stars when they meet again. The Sixers are coming off their first loss of the season, a thrashing at the hands of the Hobart Hurricanes, and while the Stars have won their last two, the Sixers will believe they have the better of their opponents and can return to winning ways right away thanks to their top order producing the goods with the bat. So we think the sixers can steal the win.
