Melbourne Stars

Melbourne Stars are being led by Glenn Maxwell in this season of Big Bash League. They finished up at the runners-up spot last year after losing the derby against Melbourne Renegades.

They are off to a fantastic start in this season as well with two wins out of two cricket games. Their batting has clicked in both games so far with scores of over 160. In the last game against Hobart, they decimated them with the ball after scoring 163 runs on batting first. While Glenn Maxwell led the way with the bat in the first game, Marcus Stoinis top-scored in the next game.

Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game. 

Here is our prediction of Melbourne Stars’ playing XI:

  • NJ Maddinson
  • MP Stoinis
  • HWR Cartwright
  • PSP Handscomb
  • GJ Maxwell
  • Haris Rauf
  • BR Dunk
  • CD Hinchliffe
  • A Zampa
  • DJ Worrall

Adelaide Strikers

Adelaide Strikers are going to be led by Alex Carrey in the first few games of cricket. He has led the side well and led from the front in the last cricket game.

Strikers have so far played two games of cricket of which they won the last game while the first cricket game was abandoned due to the bush fire in Sydney. In their last cricket game, they scored 198 runs on batting first in 18 overs and then managed to defend the total by just 15 runs against Perth Scorchers.

Rashid Khan was the star for Strikers in the last cricket game as he picked up three wickets for 40 runs and turned the game towards his team.

Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game. 

Here is our prediction of Adelaide Strikers’ playing XI:

  • Alex Carey
  • Rashid Khan
  • Wes Agar
  • Phil Salt
  • Cameron White
  • Billy Stanlake 
  • Jake Weatherald
  • JW Wells
  • MW Short
  • HNA Conway
  • C Valente

Expert Prediction: MS vs AS

The ninth season of Big Bash League is underway. The tournament will be played over a period of 42 days and a total number of five teams will have the chance to qualify for the finals, instead of the usual four teams.

As per the new format, the teams finishing in the top two will be rewarded for their consistency, unlike in previous seasons. While the winner of the ‘qualifier’ played between the top two teams will reach the final straightaway, the loser will play the ‘challenger’ against the winner of the ‘knockout’ which is going to be played between the side that finished third and winner of the ‘eliminator’.

The Eliminator is a newly introduced knockout feature, which will be played between the teams finishing at number fourth and fifth on the points table. Hence, out of the eight teams, five teams will have a chance to play the final and win the tournament.

Melbourne Stars and Adelaide Strikers are going to lock horn in this game of cricket. In the last five encounters between the two sides, Stars have been the winner on two occasions while Strikers have won three cricket matches.

Our prediction is of a win for Melbourne Stars as they seem to have all the bases covered at the moment. Strikers, on the other hand, are not too far either but they will have to bowl well to trouble Stars in this game of cricket.

Toss prediction? – The team winning the toss will definitely look to bowl first as the T20 game is hugely a chase-friendly format. Hence, irrespective of the conditions, our prediction is that the team winning the toss would like to bowl first
