STA vs THU Dream11 Prediction Big Bash League T20, 2021 Playing 11, Stats, Pitch Report, Live Score

By Sonam G

STA vs THU Dream11 Prediction: Welcome to the 7th match of the Big Bash League T20, 2021 where Melbourne Stars take on Sydney Thunder. Stars suffered a humiliation in the opening match of the season where they lost to Sydney Sixers by 152 runs. They have made some big additions to the squad and the big man Andre Russell will be featuring for them from this match. The return of Stoinis and Coulter Nile will make them a far better team for this home game. Sydney Thunder on the other hand had a complete performance in the last match against Heat. The bowlers led by Daniel Sams restricted the opposition to a below-par total and in the chase, Alex Ross delivered a match-winning performance.

Pitch Report

MCG is considered to be one of the most competitive surfaces in the world. It offers a fine balance between bat and ball. It is a good deck for batting while bowlers get some assistance early on with mostly genuine bounce and generally, the spinners do not get much of purchase at this venue.
