Melbourne Stars vs Perth Scorchers Match Preview:

The 7th game of the Big Bash League will see the Stars take on the Perth Scorchers at the MCG. Both the teams look strong on paper but the Stars will be without Glenn Maxwell who is injured.

Melbourne Stars:

The Stars had to face defeat in their opening game against the Heat and were completely outplayed by their opposition. Marcus Stoinis will lead the team in this game.

With the ball, their bowlers were very expensive in the last game. Haris Rauf will join the team in this game which will strengthen their bowling attack. Mark Steketee is also expected to play this game for them.

With the bat, their batting looks a bit ordinary on paper. Hilton Cartwright was the top scorer for them in the last game and scored 33 runs. Marcus Stoinis will need to play a key role for them in the absence of Glenn Maxwell.

Perth Scorchers:

The Scorchers on the other hand, made their first outing in the 4th game against the Melbourne Renegades but the match was called off due to damp pitch and poor playing conditions.

With the bat, Stephen Eskinazi will open with the young talent Cooper Conolly and are expected to stick with the same combination atleast for a couple of games. Aaron Hardie and Jos Inglis will be the key in the middle.

With the ball, their bowling attack is undoubtedly one of the best in the tournament with the likes of Jason Behrendorff, Andrew Tye and Jhye Richardson. Skipper Ashton Turner can also bowl in this game against the left-handers.

STA vs SCO Pitch Report 2023

Average 1st Innings score: 141

Average 2nd innings score: 124

(The average score based on the T20 matches played on the ground so far)

(Final Pitch report will be updated on our Telegram Channel Prior to 15-20 mins before the game)*

The iconic MCG will host its first BBL game of the season. The pitch at the venue is generally a good wicket to bat on with the pacers getting some help with the new ball. The square boundaries are huge which would benefit the bowlers in the death. A score of above 170+ will be a good total.
