THU vs STA Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips of the Big Bash League 2022-23 (BBL 2022).

Sydney Thunder vs Melbourne Stars will play in the 1st match of the Big Bash League 2022-23 at Manuka Oval, Canberra.

THU:

The first game of the BBL 2022 will see the Sydney Thunder take on the Melbourne Stars. The Thunder look comparatively strong on paper and will look to start off their campaign on a positive note. Their squad is very similar to last season.

They finished 3rd on the points table in the last edition and are again one of the favorites going into the tournament. The batting lineup will be heavily dependent on Alex Hales, Rilee Rossouw, and the newly appointed skipper Jason Sangha.

With the ball, Gurinder Sandhu and Fazalhaq Farooqi will lead the pace attack along with Nathan McAndrew and Daniel Sams. Whereas, Chris Green and Jason Sangha are expected to handle the spin department.

STA:

The Stars did not have a great season in 2021-22 as they finished 6th on the points table. They do have a strong squad and the quality to be the champions. The team will be led by Adam Zampa in the absence of their regular skipper Glenn Maxwell.

With the bat, Marcus Stoinis and Joe Clarke are expected to open the innings followed by Nic Larkin and Joe Burns in the middle order. Beau Webster and Hilton Cartwright are expected to do the finishing duties.

With the ball, Trent Boult and Nathan Coulter Nile are expected to lead the pace attack along with Luke Wood. Skipper Adam Zampa will be their key spinner and will play a crucial role in the middle overs.
