SIX vs STA Dream11 Prediction: With eight consecutive wins and a ninth on the trot, Melbourne Stars will look to reign supreme in BBL 2019-20 as they take on the Sydney Sixers in the second clash of the season, a contest that promises to be a cracker of a duel for the fans to witness.
Melbourne Stars, led by Glenn Maxwell, had earlier won the match against the Sixers by a margin of 44-runs, courtesy the swashbuckling exhibitions from Marcus Stoinis (147*) and Hilton Cartwright (59). Stars are already topping the points tally in BBL 2019-20 with 10 wins in 11 matches and would look to continue with a similar flow for the remaining matches. Not to forget, the likes of Glenn Maxwell, Nic Maddinson, and Sandeep Lamichhane are enjoying a terrific form at the moment and thus, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if the Men in Red put up a winning show at SCG.
Meanwhile, the Moises Henriques-led Sixers shouldn’t be undermined as they too have put up top-notch exhibitions in the concurrent edition of BBL. Although they have been out of form off late, they still hold 6 wins in 11 matches and need two more wins to surely a spot for sure shot in the knockouts. Banking on the trio of Josh Philippe, James Vince, and Daniel Hughes, the Sixers would look to come up with a dominating show if they are vying for a seat in the knockouts. Seated at the third spot, the Men in Pink need two more wins in their belt to make it to the eliminators.
