BBL 2021-22 is off and running with all teams playing their first round of matches. Every team will look to build their core playing group which gives them the balance and depth from the squad available. Sydney Thunder kicked off the season on a good note with a victory in their opening match. But succumbed to loss in their very next match against Melbourne Stars. Stars made a brilliant comeback after the shellacking they received from the Sixers in the first match.

Sydney Thunder Preview

Sydney Thunder`s openers were dismissed very early in the match and their middle order duo of Mathew Gikes (56 runs) and Sam Billings (43 runs) stitched together a 89-run partnership to make a comeback. Alex Ross and Ben Cutting scored quick runs lower down the order but failed to chase 11 runs off the last over to lose the game by 4 runs.

Their bowling unit got a good start with 3 wickets against the opposition in the first 10 overs but allowed the opposition regain momentum with a big partnership. Tanveer Sangha and McAndrew shared 3 wickets between them in the match. Gurinder Sandhu, Chris Green, and Ben Cutting chipped in economical overs in the middle overs.

Key players to bet on: Sam Billings, Tanveer Sangha, Ben Cutting

Melbourne Stars Preview

Melbourne Stars were struggling at 61/3 at the half-way mark of their innings before Nick Larkin (52 runs) and Hilton Cartwright (42 runs) made a brilliant attacking 80-run partnership. And Dre Russ made his presence with a couple of hits to finish their innings with a flourish.

Their bowling unit performed exceptionally well to take wickets regularly and restrict the opposition to win the match by 4 runs. Nathan Coulter Nile was the pick of the bowlers with the bowling figures of 4-1-27-2. Spinners Adam Zampa and Qais Ahmed chipped in with a wicket each in the match with Zampa defending 11 runs off the last over too.

Weather Conditions

Sydney will have a bright and sunny weather on the match day with just 20% chances of rain by the forecasters. No weather interruptions are expected in this game.

Venue Details

Showground is a batter friendly wicket but spinners might get good help from the surface. 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 Bat

Teams batting first has a 6-1 win-loss record in the matches played so far and last 5 matches are won by teams batting first. We expect both captains to bat first in this match if they win the toss.

Sydney Thunders have a strong batting and bowling unit with good depth and balance owing to the presence of the all-rounders. But, they lack big-hitters in their plying XI to match stars. Melbourne Stars has one of the strongest batting line-up with Stoinis, Maxwell, and Russell up their ranks. They also have an equally potent bowling attack capable of troubling any team. And, we expect Sydney Thunders to win this match.

SYDNEY THUNDER will win the match
