Melbourne Stars and Sydney Thunder will meet in the final league game of the Big Bash League. Melbourne Stars have been eliminated from the tournament and they have nothing to lose in the coming game.

Thunder on the other hand have six wins and a win will take them closer to the playoff spot. A loss, however, will put them in jeopardy.

STA vs THU Dream11 Top Fantasy Picks All Rounders, Batsman, Bowlers, Wicket Keepers

Wicketkeeper Joe Clarke, Matthew Gikes (VC)
Batters Hilton Cartwright, Tom Frazer Roger, David Warner (C), Olivier Davies
All-rounders Beau Webster, Daniel Sams
Bowlers Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa, Usman Qadir

David Warner

David Warner has not played as per his reputation but when it comes to must-win games, there is hardly any player bigger than Warner. The southpaw will be looking to deliver in this crunch game and take his team to the playoffs.

Matthew Gikes

Matthew Gikes is another batter who has been in decent form for Sydney Thunder. Matthew Gikes scored a blazing 74 against Melbourne Renegades to take his team to a win.

Usman Qadir

Usman Qadir can be the trump for Thunder given that the wickets have lost life and it is much tougher to score against the spinners.

Joe Clarke

Joe Clarke has done well for the Stars this season. However, he didn't find support from other end. With this being his final innings, he would be keen to make an impact

Nathan Coulter-Nile

Nathan Coulter-Nile can be a good pick owing to his ability to bowl wicket to wicket and swing the new ball both ways.
