Betting Tips

  • Melbourne Stars have a better batting line up but most of their players are out of form.
  • Strikers on the other hand have a very good bowling attack and we think that Stars batsmen will struggle against them.
  • Melbourne Stars are over dependent on Glen Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis. Once they fail, Stars will be in trouble.

MLS vs ADS Prediction & Betting tips, BBL 2020-21

Melbourne Stars take on Adelaide Strikers in the 40th match of the Big Bash League. The match will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and is set to begin at 7:15 PM local time.

Adelaide Strikers picked up an easy win over Melbourne Stars in their last match and they’re looking very good to continue their good run.

The reason we’re giving Strikers an edge is that Melbourne Stars have been poor in their batting. They boast of a solid batting line up but they’ve not looked threatening at all.
 Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis have been their best batsmen but it seems that they too have hit a rough patch. Other batsmen have been far too inconsistent. The bowling also has been average.

Adelaide Strikers on the other hand will be very happy by the way their bowlers are performing in the tournament. Daniel Worrall, Wes Agar, Danny Briggs, Harry Conway forms a strong bowling attack. 

Rashid Khan, however, won’t be available for the remaining part of the BBL which is a big loss. Still, we think the bowling attack of the Srikers is good enough to keep a check on the Stars batsmen.

Their batting however looks slightly shaky, it has been throughout the tournament. Apart from AlexCarey, other batsmen like Matt Renshaw, Philip Salt, Jonathan Wells, Jake Weaherald have been very inconsistent. 

Overall, Stars have a better batting line up on paper but most of their players are not in the best of form and we expect them to struggle against the Strikers bowling.

Melbourne Stars Team News & Playing 11

MLS Team News

No official announcement has been made about the Stars squad for their clash against the Strikers. There are great chances that they’ll go in with the same XI.

MLS Key Players 

  • Glenn Maxwell - Glen Maxwell has been very good in the tournament. Even though he’s got little inconsistent in the last few games, he’s a match winner on his day and Stars will hope that he can fire tomorrow.
  • Marcus Stoinis - He’s another batsmen that Stars heavily depend upon. Stoinis too has gone quite in the last few games but watching him bat, we think that a big knock is just around the corner.
  • Adam Zampa -  Zampa has bowled really well for the Stars. In the previous match too he picked up 2 wickets. Melbourne is a big ground and we think Zampa will be very effective there.

MLS Team Form

Melbourne Stars have been pretty disappointing in the tournament. With 3 wins and 5 losses, they’re placed 7th in the points table.

Melbourne Stars Predicted Playing 11

Andre Fletcher, Marcus Stoinis, Nick Larkin, Glenn Maxwell (c), Nic Maddinson, Hilton Cartwright, Seb Gotch (wk), Adam Zampa, Sam Rainbird, Liam Hatcher, Haris Rauf 

Adelaide Strikers Team News & Playing 11

ADS Team News

Adelaide Strikers will be without the services of their ace bowler Rashid Khan who’s left for Abu Dhabi for the ODI series against Ireland. However, the return of Peter Siddle will be a big boost for the Strikers in BBL 2020-21.

ADS Key Players

  • Alex Carey - Alex Carey has been the best strikers batsmen. We think if Strikers have to get a decent total, Carey has to play a big knock.
  • Phil Salt - Phil Salt backed up his 59 against Renegades with a solid 31 in the last match against the Strikers. He’s looking good and we can expect another good knock from him in the next match.
  • Daniel Worrall - Daniel Worrall bowled splendidly well against the Stars in the previous match. In the absence of Rashid Khan he’ll be their lead bowler and will have a big responsibility on his shoulders.

ADS Team Form

Strikers have had an average tournament with 5 wins and 5 losses. 

Adelaide Strikers Predicted Playing 11

Matt Renshaw, Philip Salt, Alex Carey (c & wk), Jonathan Wells, Jake Weatherald , Ryan Gibson, Peter Siddle, Daniel Worrall, Danny Briggs, Wes Agar, Harry Conway

MLS vs ADS Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Alex Carey at 9.5 is a good picks. Carey is the best batsmen for the Strikers and is in top form. He’s their highest run getter too.

  • Batsmen

    Jake Weatherald at 9.5, Andre Fletcher at 9.0, Jonathan Wells at 9.0 and Phil Salt at 8.0 will be our batmen. 
    We agree that the batting looks weak as the players have not performed but all these batsmen are most likely to get runs for their team.

  • All rounder

    Glenn Maxwell at 10 and Marcus Stoinis at 10.5 will add depth to our teams. These two players are the heart and soul of this Melbourne Star team.

  • Bowlers

    Adam Zampa at 9.0, Wes Agar at 8.5, Daniel Worrall at 8.5 and Harry Conway at 8.0 will complete our team. The selection of these bowlers have been done on their past performances. Zampa, Agar and Worrall have been very good throughout while Conway bowled well in the last match.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    Glenn Maxwell will be our skipper while we’ll back Alex Carey as his deputy.

MLS vs ADS Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Jake Weatherald, Andre Fletcher, Jonathan Wells, Phil Salt
