Hello and welcome to our SIX vs STA Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Sydney Sixers and Melbourne Stars will be played in the 15th match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at Carrara Oval, Queensland.
The Sydney Sixers have performed decently so far as they have won 2 out of 3 matches and are currently at 4th position on the points table with a total of 5 points. In the last game, Sydney Sixers performed brilliantly and won the match comfortably by 38 runs.
After a brilliant performance in the second match, Josh Philippe got out early in the second match, and the other batsmen Jack Edwards and James Vince, also played slowly and got out in quick sessions.
But their skipper Daniel Hughes and Dan Christian batted brilliantly in the middle overs and helped the team reach a good total. While Hughes just fell short of a half-century, Christian scored a fifty from only 16 balls.
The bowlers performed well again by restricting the opposition to a low score and winning the match comfortably. Manenti, Brathwaite, and O’Keefe bowled well by picking up two wickets each and did not allow the batsmen to score freely.
Sixer would be very high on confidence after their performance in the last two matches and would want to continue the same thing against the Melbourne Stars, but it is a challenging task
The Melbourne Stars are having a great time as they have won 2 out of the three matches, and one match was abandoned due to rain. Melbourne Stars are now at the 2nd position on the points table with a total of 10 points.
Marcus Stoinis and Andre Fletcher have been giving a decent start in the batting, and Stoinis has already scored a fifty in this season. The middle-order looks strong with players like Glenn Maxwell, Nicholas Pooran, and Ben Dunk.
The bowling attack also looks to be equally strong, with Billy Stanlake, Nathan Coulter-Nile, and Liam Hatcher being the pace attack. They have been very well accompanied by leg-spinner Adam Zampa who is a consistent wicket-taker.
Stars have not played a single match for the last nine days, but they would want to continue their winning streak by winning against equally strong Sydney Sixers.
