THU vs STA  Dream11 Prediction | Big Bash League 2019-20 | 28th Match | Dream11 Prediction | Dream11 Tips | Dream11 Team | Grand League | Small League | Expert Team

Venue:- Melbourne Cricket ground, Melbourne

Date:- 8 January, 2020

Time:- 1:40 PM IST


Melbourne Stars have the advantage since they have appeared the strongest in this tournament thus far while Sydney Thunder look for a much needed win when they have been losing on rapid basis. It is going to be a tough contest clearly.

Pitch report:-

One of the most flattest decks you will get in Australia is Melbourne Cricket Ground. Considering the power hitters available in both the teams, it easily appears to be a high scoring contest unless rain spoils it or the team batting first doesn’t do its job nicely.

Team News:-

1. Jonathan Cook is back in alongside Nathan Mcandrew for Sydney Thunder thus boosting the bowling line up for them.

2. Haris Rauf is back in for Dale Steyn While Cartwright is in for Merlo for Melbourne Stars.

Playing XI

THU:- Usman Khawaja, Alex Hales, Callum Ferguson (C), Matthew Gilkes (WK), Alex Ross, Chris Morris, Daniel Sams, Chris Green, Arjun Nair/ Jonathan Cook, Chris Tremain, Brendan Doggett

STA:- Nic Maddinson, Marcus Stoinis, Nick Larkin, Glenn Maxwell (C), Peter Handscomb (WK), Ben Dunk, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa, Daniel Worrall, Haris Rauf, Sandeep Lamichhane

THU vs STA Dream11 team

Gilkes might be walking in at #4 while Handscomb might not even get his chance so it is wiser to pick the former.

Sams is in great form with both bat as well as bowl and he can prove to be a major asset.

Green might go on to click as well given the pitch which will suit him for sure.

Stoinis is a captaincy material too but Dunk is likely to open and if he does so, he automatically becomes the captain.

Grand league tips

Maxwell is difficult to leave out and can be a great pick himself.

Zampa is not in the best of his touch but he is someone who can pick wickets often.

Rauf might be coming in for Stars and he is another player who can be given a chance.
