STA vs HEA Dream11 Prediction & Player Stats: 2nd Match | BBL 2020-21

Hello and welcome to our STA vs HEA Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Melbourne Stars and Brisbane Heat will clash against each other in the 2nd match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at Manuka Oval, Canberra.

Melbourne Stars:

The Melbourne Stars have outstanding players in the side, but they are yet to win the title yet. They have been runner-ups thrice but not able to lift the Cup, but this time around they would want to change things around and take home the trophy.

Glenn Maxwell will be leading the side who is currently in perfect form as he batted brilliantly against India and also picked up a couple of wickets. Another star all-rounder Marcus Stoinis who had a brilliant BBL with the bat last year will play a crucial role this year.

They have got other excellent strikers of the ball like Andre Fletcher, Ben Dunk, and Hilton Cartwright who can play big shots as well as rotate the strike pretty well. Adam Zampa, who has looked in great form recently would be a bonus for the team.

Stars have enough fire-power in their team to make it to the playoffs and even go on to win the tournament. In last season, they were very close, and this time they would want to win their 1st ever BBL title.

Brisbane Heat:

The Brisbane Heat has a Big Bash title to their name, but that was way back in the 2nd season. Their performance has not been up to the mark as they have not been able to qualify for the past three seasons. Heat would be hoping to perform better this year and try to qualify for the playoffs.

The destructive batsman Chris Lynn will be leading the side and will also be opening for the team. There are not many star players in the squad that has been announced for this match, but there are players who can win the match for them.

Max Bryant is also an excellent striker of the ball who will probably open the innings alongside Chris Lynn, and Ben Laughlin is the only experienced bowler in the side who is capable of picking up wickets consistently.

Most of their star players have left the squad this year, and so it is still not so clear how they will be performing in this season.
