Pitch Report:

Key Players:

Analysis: There will be some big names in action in this contest which will feature players who were absolutely sensational in previous season of Big Bash League. James Vince (537 runs) and Josh Philippe (508 runs) had brilliant campaigns for Sydney as the duo led them to their third BBL title. Melbourne’s star duo of Marcus Stoinis (396 runs) and Glenn Maxwell (379 runs) also had decent campaigns but they would be hoping for a much better season this time around.

Meanwhile, Ben Dwarshuis (24 wickets) and Adam Zampa (19 wickets) were in scintillating form last year and they would be hoping to begin from where they left. The mentioned names should definitely be a part of your fantasy team, with Maxwell and Philippe as two potential candidates for captain of your side.
