Sydney Sixers vs Melbourne Stars by Marlo
The Big Bash seems to be under tipped on here so I will post this and hopefully it helps someone with a bet who is following the competition.
THe Melbourne Stars has made a poor start to the competition and are winless after two outings. This is the team that has started as pre tournament favourites and if they lose 3 in a row here making it to the finals will be that much more difficult.
The last time out they lost by a single run to the Sydney Thunder courtesy of a ton from Usman Khawaja who made a return from injury. I remember watching that game and despite having Thunder to win I felt very luck to record a win after the Stars had the clear advantage heading into the closing overs.
Since then Pietersen has left for the birth of his child and though that weakens the firepower I think they will have enough here for the Sydney Sixers who despite winning 2 of their last 3 games has not been as convincing in their performances.
The Melbourne Stars has a lot more match winners in their team and boast the talents of Luke Wright, Glenn Maxwell, David Hussey and James Faulkner.
Bookies struggle to split the sides and I will back the pre tournament favs to get their first win. Stan James has better price of 1.95 for those interested.
