Melbourne Stars will face off against the Sydney Sixers in the 56th game of the Big Bash League 2020-21. The two teams will be looking for a win in this fixture. They will hope to play some good cricket. It could be a good fight.
Having won only two out of their last five games, Melbourne Stars saw a slump in form in the last quarter of the tournament. While it’s better to say that they’re already knocked out from the tournament but drilling one of the top teams of the season in the last game could be fun. Nothing has majorly gone wrong with Glenn Maxwell and company but they would desperately need Fletcher to shed the ‘out of form’ tag and open fire.
Maxwell and Stoinis in the same team is a big promise, but the two are yet to go all big. Melbourne Stars are placed at the seventh rung of the Big Bash League 2020-21 points table with five wins, seven losses and 24 points from their 13 matches of the league. Marcus Stoinis is the top run-scorer for Melbourne Stars with 384 runs and Glenn Maxwell follows him with 313 runs against his name. Adam Zampa is has picked 19 wickets to lead their bowling attack.
Perth Scorchers – after sitting at their neck for days at the points table – now occupy the top spot. Sydney Sixers have had a consistent season, with no big noise and regular wins. While, they seem to be placed well over the line, one last win against a side that is already down, will help them carry the momentum into the playoffs.
The Sixers sit on the second spot of the Big Bash League 2020-21 points table with eight wins, five losses and 32 points from their 13 matches. Opener Josh Phillipe has been their top run-getter 453 runs at a strike rate of 150 against his name. The next best Jordan Silk sits at 330 runs. Ben Dwarshuis has picked 16 wickets and leads their attack.
Sydney Sixers and the Melbourne Stars have faced each other 15 times. The Sixers have won eight matches and the Stars have won six matches and one game resulted in a tie.
At one glance, Sydney Sixers should be a clear winner in this game but one wouldn’t want to rule out the blasts Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis will have to offer. However, the behaviour MCG pitch – that will be a used one on the day – will predict most of the game. Get to bat first, try reaching 200 runs and then let loose your spinners must be the anthem here. For one sentence – Sydney Sixers should win a fell fought game on Tuesday.
