MLS vs SDT Dream11 Prediction

Big Bash League, 2018-19 | Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Thunders, Match 20 | MLS vs SDT Who Will Win

Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Stars will lock horns for the second time in BBL 2018-19 at the Carrara Oval in Queensland.  Thunder who are banking on a magnificent run of form of their English recruit Jos Buttler would be up for this challenge.

Stars, on the other hand, will be looking for their third straight win in the competition as they have defeated Sydney Sixers and Melbourne Renegades in their last two games to put their foot on the accelerator after losing their opening two games.

The last meeting between the two sides

One of that two lossess came against Sydney Thunder who reigned supreme in a rain-marred match by 15 runs. That was the 3rd game of the season where Sydney Thunder banked on some lusty batting effort from Jason Sangha who scored an unbeaten 63 off 36 balls.

His knock helped Thunder to post a formidable 181 on the board and once the first innings was completed, the rain gods made their presence felt.

A revised target of 99 runs was given to chase in 8 overs but, a magnificent bowling effort from Daniel Sams who scalped 3 for just 5 runs in just 2 overs made Stars way even more torrid and they eventually fell 15 runs short of the target.
