Chance of Winning





Our Prediction

Melbourne Stars are favorites to win

MLS vs PRS Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2020-21

Melbourne Stars will take on Perth Scorchers in the 50th match of the Big Bash League. The match will be played at Melbourne Cricket Ground and is set to begin at 7:15 PM local time

Two teams will brutal power, this is one of the most exciting game of the Big Bash League. Melbourne Stars lost their last match to Melbourne Renegades and will need a win in this match to keep their hopes alive. A loss won’t get them out of the tournament but the the difference between the teams is so narrow that every match is looked as a knock out game.

Melbourne Stars boast of a pretty solid batting line up. Marcus Stonis and Glenn Maxwell are two of their top batsmen. Nic Larkin has also played well in the last few games. Andre Fletcher, Nic Maddinson and Hilton Cartwright are players that can turn the game on their head. 

The batting is brilliantly complemented by a quality bowling line up. Adam Zampa and Zahir Khan will be very handy on this wicket. Nathan Coulter-Nile has also been magnificent in all the matches he’s played.

Taking about Perth Scorchers, they themselves have been top class. They’ve probably the best batting line up in the tournament.

Jason Roy, Liam Livingstone, Colin Munro, Mitch Marsh, Josh Inglish, Ashton Turner are good enough to give nightmares to any bowling line up. 

The bowling is also led well by Jhye Richardson who’s been in scintillating form. Jason Behrendorff, Andrew Tye, Fawad Ahmed and the all rounders have supported him brilliantly.

Overall, there is not much to choose between the two teams but we think that the Stars have a bowling line up that’ll get more out of this pitch than the Scorchers. Adam Zampa, Zahir Khan and Glenn Maxwell will be the bowlers to watch out for.
