Melbourne Stars Team Analysis
Melbourne Stars performance had been excellent in this edition of BBL. Last year also they had played well and reached into the finals. However, their last few matches this year had not gone well for them. They had lost 3 consecutive matches which is not a good sign at all. Their recent match against Brisbane Heat was very disappointing from them. They bowled first after losing the toss and allowed the opposition to post the score of 186 runs in 20 overs. Adam Zampa bowled beautifully as he picked up 3 wickets and gave away just 27 runs in his 4 overs spell. Sandeep Lamichhane picked up 1 wicket and gave away just 16 runs.Other bowlers leaked too many runs.
Their batsmen had a great tournament but this time they failed miserably and could only score 115 runs in 20 overs. Openers Marcus Stoinis and Seb Gotch lost their wicket very early in the match. Even the highest scorer of the season failed to score runs. He scored 17 runs in 11 balls. Nick Larkin and Peter Handscomb then started to build a partnership but soon Nick Larkin departed. He scored 22 runs in 22 balls. Peter Handscomb got out after scoring 27 runs in 18 balls. Skipper Glenn Maxwell went back to the pavilion after scoring 1 run.
Sydney Sixers Team Analysis
The top 2 teams will fight against each other to qualify for the finals. Sydney Sixers really did hard work to cement the 2nd spot on the points table. Their last 3 matches had been brilliant for them. They won 3 matches consecutively. Their last match against Melbourne Renegades was a really great match. They bowled first after winning the toss and their bowlers allowed the Renegades to score 175 runs on the board. Tom Curran was absolutely brilliant with the ball as he picked up 3 wickets and gave away just 27 runs in his 4 overs spell. Steve OKeefe also bowled well as he picked up 1 wicket and gave away just 27 runs.
While chasing a total of 176 runs it’s very important to not lose a wicket in first 6 overs and Sixers did the same thing. Openers Josh Phillippe and James Vince started the innings really well. The former scored 61 runs in 42 balls with 3 sixes and 5 fours while the latter 22 runs in 13 balls after he got run out. Steven Smith played an absolute gem of an inning. He scored brilliant 66 runs in 40 balls with 7 fours and 1 six and took the game away from Melbourne Renegades. His inclusion in the side had definitely increased the team’s strength.
