Melbourne Stars registered consecutive wins in the Australian T20 League after they beat Sydney Thunder in each of their two matches. Now they will face Sydney Sixers against whom they lost the opening match but have since gone to win the other two. For Sixers too it will be a peculiar contest after a massive 152-run win over Stars in the season opener. Having won one match, they have lost one match against Hobart Hurricanes and will be keen on replicating their performance of the tournament opener against Stars.

Key Players:


Josh Philippe should easily be one of the first picks in the fantasy team. Not only is he a capable option behind the stumps but will bat at the top of the order and has been in good form which makes him a definite yes in the XI. Joe Clarke could also be considered but hasn’t had the kind of season he would have been looking for. Marcus Stoinis, Nick Larkin, James Vince and Daniel Hughes among batters will also have a chance of making an impact with the bat so picking the team with these players could be useful. It is the all-rounders who are a plenty in this match and it is only a matter of getting the combination right. Glenn Maxwell, Hilton Cartwright, Andre Russell and Moises Henriques will be the best four all-rounders on current form although there are options like Hayden Kerr and Dan Christian also available. Steve O Keefe, Tom Curran, Qais Ahmad and Brody Couch are the preferred bowlers for this match with some of them even capable options with the bat.
