Chris Green(C), Sam Billings (wk), Alex Hales, Sam Whiteman, Matthew Gilkes, Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, Nathan McAndrew, Ben Cutting, Tanveer Sangha, Gurinder Sandhu.

Melbourne Stars Playing 11

Key Player

Marcus Stoinis                                                 

Marcus Stoinis is one of the Stars’ all-time top run-scorers in the BBL. At the top of the order, he has been a rock for his squad. He only scored 13 runs in the first game. However, considering his abilities, he is likely to make a comeback.

Tanveer Sangha

Tanveer Sangha has been a consistent wicket-taker for the Thunder over the last two seasons. The leg-spinner has three wickets at an amazing economy rate of 7.28 in two games. The Stars’ hitters might be in big danger if he rediscovers his groove.

Team News

  • The Thunder were dragged back to earth by the Stars on Friday after getting their season started to a winning start against the Brisbane Heat.
  • Andre Russell was a bit pricey with the ball, but he’ll get the nod again because he’ll only be available for five games in the tournament.

Sydney Thunder vs Melbourne Stars Match Tips

Melbourne Stars appear to be in an excellent position to go forward now that they’ve won their first game, and they surely have the personnel to do so. In terms of the star’s power, Stoinis, Maxwell, Russell, and Zampa greatly outnumber the Sydney Thunder, but it would be stupid to overlook the Thunder, who are a very good squad with a threatening bowling attack in particular. Another tight match is predicted between these two teams, but the Melbourne Stars’ momentum and all-around firepower may just be enough to give them the advantage over the Thunder and claim a win.
