This is one of the worst opening performances from Melbourne Stars in Big Bash history. They are a top side but they did not show this in this match. They were completely dominated by the Sixers from start to finish. A 152 run loss is a huge embarrassment to the side and they will be keen to improve on that for their first home match.

The Sixers batted first and put on 213/4. This was a disaster for the Stars bowlers. Sam Rainbird 59/1 from 4 overs was the worst of the bowlers – That’s a 14.75 economy. None of the bowlers came out well from this performance.

With the bat only 2 players got over 10 runs, again no one came out well from this performance. Opener Peter Nevill top-scored with 18 from 14 and Hilton Cartwright got 10 from 9. The Stars hit 1 6 in the innings

Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Thunder Match Prediction

This looks to be a great game and should be a good one to watch. The Cricketics team will be following this match closely. It sets the rest of the tournament up for the Melbourne Stars and another big defeat would be a real blow to their confidence.

Sydney Thunder looked good in their last performance and another win should be on the cards if they perform well in this match. 2 for 2 would be an ideal start for a team who finished third last year. They will want to go one better than losing the playoff in last years Big Bash.

Predicted result: Sydney Thunder to win in a sub 150 match

Predicted scores if batting first:

Melbourne Stars 120/8

Sydney Thunder 150/6
