Sporting a poor h2h record against Melbourne Stars, the Thunder will be looking to get one over these bitter rivals in this contest. They will need to turn in a performance of the highest quality to ensure the Stars are effectively swept aside.Bet Now!
Putting heads together, the Thunder gave Melbourne Renegades a hiding in their previous match, winning by a staggering 129 runs. Openers Usman Khawaja and Alex Hales had a field day, and will be hoping for more of the same here.
However, the Stars have a strong bowling unit, and ST will have to be at their best to break down this opposition. In the middle order, Olivier Davies, Daniel Sams and Callum Ferguson are expected to chip in with their own contributions.
The Stars must have been kicking themselves after their previous clash with Sydney Sixers, where they lost by a measly one wicket. Well on-course for victory, they were brought down to their knees after failing to bowl out the Sixers’ lower middle order.
To stand a good chance against Sydney Thunder, MS will need the duo of Marcus Stoinis and Ben Dunk to hit their former high marks. They are pretty solid in the middle order with the likes of Nick Larkin and Hilton Cartwright filling that unit.
That said, their poor record against the Stars cannot be overlooked. Alongside h2h advantage, MS have a stronger batting lineup than ST. As such, we expect Melbourne Stars to use this to good effect to send the opposition sinking.
