Weather Conditions

Melbourne will has dark and overcast weather on the match day with just 70% chances of rain by the forecasters. Rain interruptions are expected in this game.

Venue Details

MCG is a batter friendly wicket but spinners might get like the bigger boundary dimensions on this ground. We can expect a good contest between the bat and ball in this match and average scores to be around 160-180 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Teams batting first has a good record in the matches played so far but rain and DLS equation might prompt the teams to bat second in this match. We expect both captains to bowl first if they win the toss.

Melbourne Stars and Sydney Sixers are two of the strongest teams in the BBL history and this season too. Melbourne Stars have a strong and deep batting line-up with a number of all-rounders in lower order. Sydney Sixers have a dominant firepower in their batting line-up with the likes of Stoinis, Maxwell, and Russell in their ranks. Sydney Sixers have a better bowling attack with two quality spinners in their playing XI alongside Maxwell. We expect Sydney Sixers to win this match.

SYDNEY SIXERS will win the match
