Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Sixers Preview

  • Sydney Sixers will be confident because they have won their last eight matches against Melbourne Stars.
  • The Melbourne Stars are at the bottom of the standings after winning only twice in their last seven games.

On Friday night at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Game 31 of the 2022–23 Big Bash League will feature the Melbourne Stars vs. Sydney Sixers. Sydney Sixers are in the third position while Melbourne Stars are at the bottom of the standings, with a five-point gap separating the teams. The match begins on January 6 at 18:30 local time at the MCG.

The tournament’s bottom-placed Melbourne Stars team has struggled to string together victories. They will have to contend with a formidable Sydney Sixers squad in this game.

Sydney Sixers have been playing good cricket and are in a solid position in the competition despite losing both of their most recent games. They anticipate leaving the MCG with another victory.

At the MCG, there will be no clouds for this game, and it will be sunny for much of the first half. During the game, the temperature will dip from the mid-20s to the upper teens.


Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Sixers Match Toss Prediction

Since 53.3% of BBL games at the MCG have been won by the side batting first, we forecast that both captains will elect to bat first if their team wins the toss before this game.


Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Sixers Pitch Report

In 2022, a BBL first innings score of 141 is typical. We anticipate a pitch that will provide plenty of movement for quick bowlers and some turn for spinners.
