Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Thunder Big Bash Today Match Prediction On December 10, the Melbourne Stars face the Sydney Thunder in BBL Match 7 at the MCG. In their tournament opener, the Melbourne Stars were crushed by the Sydney Sixers by a huge 152 runs. Glenn Maxwell, the captain, will have to solve a lot of concerns since his team appears to lack the necessary skills to succeed on such a large platform. The Thunder have had a promising start to their campaign, as they defeated a strong Brisbane Heat team in their first game.

After bowling first, the Thunder bowling team reduced an explosive Heat batting order to a modest 140-run total. Despite losing early wickets, Sam Billings and Alex Ross kept the Thunder on pace to reach their goal. The Thunder chased down the mark in 17.1 overs thanks to Billings’ quick 36-ball 45 and Ross’s 46-ball 61. Matthew Gilles made an impact with a 10-ball 20-point performance.

Pitch Report

Because the track hasn’t historically been a high-scoring one, hitters will need to show off their application to obtain runs on this surface. The ground’s dimensions are on the bigger side, thus a spinner might be useful in the middle overs.

Key Player

Alex Hales                                                         

In the previous match, England’s opener may have bowled a duck. Taking him lightly, on the other hand, would be a mistake for the Glenn Maxwell-led team. Hales has the ability to attack bowlers from the start, and his propensity to play large knocks adds to his value. He’s also one of the most successful batters in the BBL’s history.

Adam Zampa

Last month, the renowned leg-spinner played a key role in Australia’s T20 World Cup victory. As a result, there’s no reason Zampa can’t repeat his exploits in the BBL. The top bowler had a rough start to the season, surrendering 34 runs in four overs and failing to pick up a wicket. In Melbourne, though, he would be a force to be reckoned with.

Team News

  • Sydney Thunder boasts a strong bowling attack, but it appears to be missing one batter in its present incarnation.
  • The return of Stoinis and Russell to the Stars should help them in this encounter.

Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Thunder Match Tips

With home advantage, the Melbourne Stars must undoubtedly improve their performance with both bat and ball, albeit their bowlers will have their work cut out for them on what should be a magnificent hitting surface at the MCG. The Sydney Thunder, on the other hand, have a confident bowling attack and a batting order that demonstrated their worth against the Heat, particularly in their middle order. This race, though, might come down to Stoinis’ availability. If he is unable to recover from his injuries in a timely manner, the Sydney Thunder must be favored in this match.
