STA vs THU | BBL 2019-20

STA vs THU Dream11 Match Prediction: It is time for the challenger to take place which will decide the second finalist of BBL 2019-20. The winner of this game will go on to meet Sydney Sixers in the finals which will take place on February 08th at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney.

After finishing right at the top of the points table in the group stage, Melbourne Stars have slumped to four defeats on the trot. A loss here will tarnish their hopes of playing in the final.
