Stars vs Scorchers Preview & Prediction

The Melbourne Stars will be booming with confidence after smashing their highest score of the season so far against the lacklustre Brisbane Heat on Monday.

Glenn Maxwell’s outfit turned it on under the lights at The Gabba as they reached a total of 9/207. Joe Clarke and Hilton Cartwright combined for 13 of the Stars 14 sixes. Although it was their bowling at the death and throughout the Heat middle order which ensured the victory. Qais Ahmad starred with 3/26 off four overs.

This is a must-watch encounter you don’t want to miss, with the Scorchers putting together another title-winning campaign and the Stars eager to make it theirs. Although, I do believe it will be the Scorchers that prevail in a tight contest after the reverse fixture was postponed due to a covid scare.

Meanwhile, the Perth Scorchers fell to their first defeat of the season last time out against the Thunder but remain slightly ahead of arch-rivals Sydney Sixers. However, they have a game in hand.

Ashton Turner’s side felt it tough with ball in hand, unable to break the Jason Sangha and Sam Billings partnership, which would’ve put them In a strong position to win the contest, but loose deliveries and superb batting meant the Thunder posted a score too big enough to chase.

It’s going to take an off day for Perth to drop points in any encounter, with their squad performing in all facets of the game. Two of the top three batsmen are Perth players, whilst the top two wicket-takers in the BBL this season are also Scorchers players.
