STA vs HEA Dream11 Prediction, BBL 2019-20, Match 53: Preview, Head to Head, Form Guide, Probable XI, Top Picks & Best Dream11 Teams

STA vs HEA Dream11 Prediction: Melbourne Stars would be hosting the Brisbane Heat in the second clash of the season in what could possibly be a ripper of a contest for both the competing teams. The first faceoff held earlier this season saw Melbourne Stars surface victorious, courtesy a Glenn Maxwell show which included 39-ball 83 with 7-fours and 5-sixes. This time as well, with the present squads and performances, one could expect top-notch performance from the Stars, considering it is the home conditions they would be competing in.

Although the Stars have lost their last two matches, including a narrow defeat at the hands of Adelaide Strikers lately, one could still vouch for the Men in Green to rack up a fantabulous display at MCG.  They have already booked a seat for themselves in the qualifiers and would look to end the league run on a winning note.

On the other hand, it is a do or die situation for the Brisbane Heat if they are planning to stay alive in the ongoing edition of BBL. They have lost three games in a row and a fourth defeat would nearly take away their chances of making it to the knockouts. In the points table, the Chris Lynn-led side is currently seated at the seventh spot with six wins in twelve matches and needs two more wins to make it to the playoffs. Although there is a chance this time around for teams with six wins under their belt to compete in the knockouts, it would be interesting to see whether Heat gets bowled out under pressure or manage to put up a stupendous display.
