Sydney Thunder vs Melbourne Stars

Match Details-:

Date: 12th December 2021

Time: 1:45 PM IST

Venue: Sydney Showground Stadium

Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Stars will have their second face-off on Sunday, 12th December 2021 at Sydney’s Showground Stadium. Stars must be confident after clinching a victory by 4 runs against the same opponent, on 10th December. However, it was a close match and Thunders were in the game till the end, but it was Zampa, who held his nerve and delivered victory to his team on the last ball of the match. Both the teams will be eager to lock horns once again.

Head to Head-:

Pitch report-:

The pitch is expected to behave neutral but still, pacers will have an edge over spinners. While batting first and putting a decent total on board should be the way forward.

Team Analysis-:

Sydney Thunder-:

The team tasted a fair share of wins and defeat so far in the campaign, victory against Brisbane Heat in the season’s opener and then close defeat versus Stars must have forced them to sit and discuss their strategy for the upcoming matches, However, Sam Billings has given some confidence to the team with an impressive performance in both the matches but he is yet to get the kind of support from the openers.

Melbourne Stars-:

The team is banking heavily on its bowlers. Adam Zampa pulled off a victory in a nail-biting match against Thunder in the last match, whereas he got decent assistance from Nathan Coulter-Nile too. It’s going to be a match between bat and ball, but Stars need to do more than what they are doing and register a comprehensive victory in the campaign to have confidence for the upcoming matches.

Squad-:

Sydney Thunders-:
Alex Hales, Sam Whiteman, Matthew Gilkes, Sam Billings (wk), Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, Ben Cutting, Chris Green (c), Nathan McAndrew, Gurinder Sandhu, Tanveer Sangha

Melbourne Stars-:
Marcus Stoinis, Joe Clarke (wk), Nick Larkin, Glenn Maxwell (c), Hilton Cartwright, Andre Russell, Beau Webster, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa, Qais Ahmad, Brody Couch

Match Prediction:

Conclusion-:

Spectators will have a great time watching another nail-biting match between two teams. Although Stars look good with a strong batting lineup having players like Stoinis, Maxwell, Russell and Zampa but Thunder can’t be underestimated too.
