Stars vs Sixers Tips, Preview & Prediction
It has been a disappointing season for the Melbourne Stars who sit seventh with one match to play. They need to win and hope for other results to fall their way in order to play BBL10 finals. The Sydney Sixers are second and the defending champions have locked up a spot in the finals for the 2020/21 season.
The Stars have lost their last two matches against the Perth Scorchers and Melbourne Renegades. When they played the Sixers earlier in the season, it was a second-last ball win for the Sixers who were nine wickets down.
Glenn Maxwell top scored with 71 not out but that was overshadowed by Daniel Hughes making 96 from 51 balls to set up the win.
Going for a small upset in this match with the Stars to pick up the win. Marcus Stoinis and Maxwell are the key to success with one or both needing to make a decent score to give the Stars a winning chance. They have enough in the bowling department to get the job done, but the batting is the part that concerns me.
Maxwell top scored last time against the Sixers and needs to get amongst the runs after recent failures of 1 and 0. His last decent score was 37 against the Strikers four matches ago.
Sean Abbott returned to the Sixers last match after representing Australia in the T20 series against India. He took 2/32 and looks a good chance to claim the most wickets for the Sixers.
