MLS vs SYT Match & Analysis

The Melbourne Stars won their opening match of the Big Bash League very convincingly. They are one of the pre-tournament favorites and look like they are going to be tough to beat this entire season. Now they take on Sydney Thunder, a team that has struggled in the BBL in recent history. Sydney Thunder though has made some very good editions to its side for this season, and so they promise to be more competitive.

Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Thunder BBL 2020-21 is going to be played at the Manuka Oval, Canberra on the 12th of December 2020.

MLS vs SYT Team Previews

Melbourne Stars

The Melbourne Stars started with a relatively easy win in the tournament thanks to some terrific bowling and some excellent batting by Glenn Maxwell. The fact that Melbourne Stars are going to be real contenders for the title this season as well was clear to see.

Coulter-Nile may have picked up four wickets but we do not think he was the best bowler in the previous match. Dilbar Hussain from Pakistan bowled smartly and created chances at all stages. Watch out for him in this next match.

Adam Zampa, Billy Stanlake, Glenn Maxwell, and Clint Hinchcliffe were all very good as well.

The batting faltered a bit before Maxwell showed his big-hitting skills. There is enough depth that someone or the other is always going to be able to step up and get the job done. Marcus Stoinis missed out in the previous match and will want to make amends against Sydney Thunder.

Sydney Thunder

Sydney Thunder has put together a squad capable of winning regularly in the BBL this season. We are very excited to see Adam Milne play for them as he is capable of bowling above 150kmph on a regular basis.

He will add a lot of firepower to the Thunder bowling attack, something that was missing in the previous seasons, at least the recent ones. Daniel Sams, Chris Tremain, Ben Cutting, and Brendan Doggett are some of the other seam bowling options while Chris Green and Arjun Nair are the lead spinners.

The spin-bowling may be a bit of a concern now that Chris Green has had to remodel his bowling action and is not getting that same zip off the surface.

Usman Khawaja, Alex Hales, Alex Ross, Callum Ferguson, and some very useful all-rounders round out the batting.

If the leading batsmen can get into some run-scoring form early then Sydney Thunder is going to upset a lot of the bigger teams this season.

MLS vs SYT Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. Not only does it allow the team to bat with the target in mind but also try and go for the extra points on offer this season as well.

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

There is some rain around in Canberra but hopefully, nothing that is going to affect that match. The pitch is going to be good for batting, the boundaries are small on one side, and the runs should flow.

We know that the previous match at the Manuka Oval was a low-scoring one but this one should be better. A score of around 160 should be par.

MLS vs SYT Betting Tips

We are sticking with the Melbourne Stars in this one but we advise you to watch Sydney Thunder very closely as well. The potential to win this match is certainly there but we would like to see the current form of their players before we really get behind them.

The Melbourne Stars also have the advantage of having played on this surface already as well.

Bet on the Melbourne Stars to win.
