MLS vs SYS Betting Tips

  • Joe Clarke is still the only player to hit a century so far in this campaign and the keeper-batter is well worth backing as Melbourne Stars’ highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Luke Wood has taken 10 wickets in three appearances at the MCG and the pace bowler is our pick for Melbourne Stars’ top wicket taker against Sydney Sixers.
  • Englishman James Vince has performed to a high standard across his BBL career and looks to be back to his best in this campaign. He is our tip for Sydney Sixers’ highest run scorer against Melbourne Stars. Sean Abbott has taken 10 wickets in the tournament and he is a strong choice for Sydney Sixers’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • We expect James Vince to make a crucial score in this game and recommend backing him to hit over 20.5 runs at the MCG.

Melbourne Stars Team News & Playing 11

STA Team News

In spite of Nathan Coulter-Nile and Thomas Rogers both reporting minor injuries after the win over Adelaide Strikers on New Year’s Eve, both players were fit enough to be selected for the Melbourne derby on Tuesday. We anticipate seeing the same XI in this game.

STA Key Players

  • Joe Clarke - After an excellent 2022 for Melbroune Stars, 2023 could not have started any worse for Clarke who got a golden duck in the Melbourne derby, He will relish the opportunity to make amends at the same ground in this match.
  • Marcus Stoinis - The big hitting batting all-rounder was another to fail against Melbourne Renegades. However, he took the Player of the Match Award in the New Year’s Eve win over the Strikers.
  • Luke Wood - The English left-arm pace bowler continues to enjoy his first experience of the BBL. He comes into this game as Melbourne Stars’ top wicket taker.

STA Team Form

The Stars have won only two games all season with one victory coming across their last five matches

Sydney Sixers Team News & Playing 11

SIX Team News

Chris Jordan returned to the Sydney Sixers XI in the no result against Brisbane Heat on Wednesday. We would have expected him to be rested for this game but he may well keep his place in the team after bowling only three overs in the rain-affected match.

SIX Key Players

  • James Vince - The English right-hander has slowly improved his returns over the course of this campaign and made 41 runs from 24 balls in his last innings.
  • Jordan Silk - The 30 year old middle-order batter is Sydney Sixers’ highest run scorer in the BBL 2022-23 so far and he will look to be attacking whatever the match situation when he comes to the crease in this game.
  • Sean Abbott - The BBL all-time leading wicket taker went wicketless for the first time in this season’s tournament on Wednesday. With Andrew Tye closing in on his tally, expect Abbott to go hunting for wickets again at the MCG.

SIX Team Form

Sydney Sixers have not won either of their last two matches after previously winning four successive games.

Sydney Sixers Predicted Playing 11

Josh Philippe (wk), James Vince, Daniel Hughes, Moises Henriques (c), Jordan Silk, Dan Christian, Hayden Kerr, Ben Dwarshuis, Sean Abbott, Chris Jordan, Steve O’Keefe

Who will win Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Sixers T20 Match?

There is plenty of experience and quality in the Melbourne Stars XI but for whatever reason, they have been unable to get many wins. Sydney Sixers have a ruthless streak and we expect to see this in full at the MCG.

MLS vs SYS Top Team Batsmen

Joe Clarke, Marcus Stoinis and Beau Webster are our batting picks for Melbourne Stars. Clarke and Stoinis are the joint favourites to top score for the Stars and both have made match-winning innings during this season. Webster has a top score of 78 in the 2022-23 BBL.

We are backing Josh Philippe, James Vince and Jordan Silk with the bat for Sydney Sixers. Philippe has hit one half-century in the tournament and the bookmakers expect him to deliver again in this game. Silk is averaging 36.40 from seven innings.

MLS vs SYS Top Team Bowlers

We recommend Adam Zampa, Trent Boult and Luke Wood with the ball for Melbourne Stars. Zampa and Boult have the top odds with the bookies and Boult took 2-23 in the Melbourne derby on Tuesday. Wood is the leading wicket taker for the Stars in this campaign.

Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis and Chris Jordan are our bowling tips for Sydney Sixers. The bookmakers have installed Abbott as the favourite to take the most wickets for the Sixers and he very rarely does not dismiss batters in this format. Jordan has three wickets from two matches in this year’s BBL.
