MLS vs SYS Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2020-21
It's strange that even after playing good cricket, Melbourne Stars found themselves struggling in the bottom half of the points table.
Stars haven't won a game in their last 4 outing which makes their game against Hobart Hurricanes of utmost importance.
The playoffs are long way away so Melbourne Stars still have a fair chance of making it through but a couple more losses will get their campaign into jeopardy.
They're up against Hobart Hurricanes who'll be very confident after defeating Stars in the previous clash.
Talking about this match, there is plenty to play for both teams. Melbourne Stars need a win to revive their tournament while a victory for Hurricanes will get them a step closer to the playoffs.
Read on our preview as Melbourne Stars take on Hobart Hurricanes in the 27th match of the Big Bash League. The match will be played at the Gabba, Brisbane and is scheduled to begin at 3.05 PM local time
Melbourne Stars out of no where find themselves in a very tricky situation. With 2 wins and 3 losses, they desperately need a win to get their campaign back on track.
They’re one of the most settled units at the start of the tournament but the performance in the last two games will be a big cause of concern.
In Glenn Maxwell, Nicolas Pooran, Marcus Stoinis, Andre Fletcher, Hilton Cartwright, Ben Dunk is second to none. Maxwell and Pooran are in pretty decent form but the other players have been disappointing.
In the bowling department, the loss of Adam Zampa and Nathan Coulter-Nile is a major blow as the bowling line up certainly looks short on experience. Billy Stanlake is bowling really well but other bowlers have not quite lived up the expectations.
Overall, we still see Melbourne Stars as a very good team who on their day can prove to be a stiff opponent. Against Hobart Hurricanes, with a slightly weak bowling line up, Stars will need their batsmen to step up. If not, they’ll continue sliding down the hill.
Hobart Hurricanes on the other hand are on a roll with 5 wins in 7 games. A victory against Melbourne Stars will almost confirm their place in the playoffs.
They had a decent last game with the bat with players like Dawid Malan, Ben McDermott, Colin Ingram getting themselves some handy runs. Throughout the tournament, Hobart Hurricanes have had real issues with their batting and this performance will give them a lot of confidence.
Players like D Arcy Short, Peter Handcomb, Tim David are short on runs but they’re good enough players and can be expected to be back in form anytime soon.
The bowling performance of Hobart Hurricanes have been top notch in the tournament. Riley Meredith, Scott Boland, Nathan Ellis have been selectional with the ball. Also, the duo of Johan Botha and Sandeep Lamichhane will be very hard to get away.
Overall, Hurricanes have a very strong team and even through there are few flaws in their batting, the form of their bowlers makes them a big favourite for the next match.
Melbourne Stars too have a decent team and they definitely have one of the best batting line up in the tournament. However, most of their players have not performed well in the last few games.

MLS vs HBH Toss Prediction
Gabba is not a wicket where teams prefer to chase. Both skipper woul bounce d want to win the toss and bat.
It’s a brilliant wicket to bat as the pitches here are generally flat. Once you’re set, there are plenty of run scoring opportunities available.
The weather looked good for the match day. There will be a slight cloud cover but there is no rain predicted which is a good news
