Melbourne Stars Team News

The decision to bowl first against Brisbane Heat turned out to be the wrong one for Melbourne Stars and its skipper Glenn Maxwell.

The bowlers were unable to do major damage to the opposition as only Joel Paris, Glenn Maxwell, and Nathan Coulter-Nile picked up a single wicket each. Bowlers failed to control the game and the pressure came on the batters to score runs.

On the batting front, Tom Rogers (1 off 2), Sam Harper (4 off 2), and Joe Burns (22 off 23) failed to give the team the required momentum at the top order.

In the middle order, Glenn Maxwell (23 off 14) and Hilton Cartwright (33 off 16) tried to balance the situation but couldn't handle the pressure. The lower-order was an easy catch for the opposition and the stars witnessed a disappointing end to the game.

Predicted Lineup: Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Joel Paris, Usama Mir, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Sam Harper, Joe Burns, Hilton Cartwright, Olly Stone, Liam Dawson, Thomas Fraser Rogers

Perth Scorchers Team News

The Scorchers will be ready to start their BBL journey as their first fixture was stopped due to rains. With 5-titles in their bag, Perth Scorchers is the most successful team in BBL and it is not an easy task to dominate them.

Aaron Hardie, Josh Inglis, and Ashton Turner will be the key players on the batting front. The trio were on the list of top 6 highest run-scorers in the previous season.

Jason Behrendorff and Jhye Richardson will be responsible for the pace attack with Andrew Tye as the third pace bowler who is known for his death over bowling. The Scorchers have a major void in their spin department as Ashton Agar is recovering from an injury and won’t be part of the team.
