SYT vs MLS Betting Tips

  • Matthew Gilkes top scored for Sydney Thunder with 56 from 49 balls on Friday and is a strong choice for Sydney Thunder’s highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Tanveer Sangha took 2 of the 3 wickets taken by his side. He is well worth backing as Sydney Thunder’s top wicket taker against Melbourne Stars.
  • Nick Larkin made an unbeaten half-century in Friday’s win and is our pick for Melbourne Stars’ highest run scorer against Sydney Thunder. Nathan Coulter-Nile was the leader of the Stars’ bowling attack at the MCG and we expect him to be a threat in Sydney also. He is our tip for Melbourne Stars’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • Middle order batter Nick Larkin will be relishing facing the Sydney Thunder bowlers again so soon after his half-century on Friday. Larkin is our prediction for the Player of The Match Award.

Sydney Thunder are always capable of an incredible performance one day and a shocker the next. They will be competitive but may not have enough in this game.

Sydney Thunder Team News & Playing 11

SYT Team News

After getting their campaign off to a winning start against Brisbane Heat, the Thunder were brought back down to earth by the Stars on Friday. Only two bowlers took wickets in the game and Daniel Sams’ place is under threat after conceding 50 from his 4 overs. There are no injuries in the Thunder squad.

SYT Key Players

  • Matthew Gilkes- the young left-handed batter has hit over 70 runs in the tournament already and struck 5 boundaries in Friday’s defeat.
  • Sam Billings- the keeper-batter hit 43 from 31 balls during the chase at the MCG but will be disappointed to have been dismissed at an important stage.
  • Tanveer Sangha- the young leg-spinner has 3 wickets in the competition and has not gone for over 30 runs in either of the opening games.

SYT Team Form

The Thunder have won only two of their last five games and are looking for consistency at this early stage of the season.

Melbourne Stars Team News & Playing 11

MLS Team News

After ending a losing streak of four games in BBL 2021, it would be a big surprise if Melbourne Stars choose to make any changes to their XI. Andre Russell was very expensive with the ball but will certainly get the nod again as he is only available for five games in the tournament.

MLS Key Players

  • Nick Larkin- the middle order batter top scored with a 43-ball unbeaten 52 on Friday. He hit five fours and shared an 80 run partnership with Hilton Cartwright.
  • Marcus Stoinis- the World Cup winning all-rounder opens the batting for the Stars. He hit a run a ball 13 at the MCG on Friday but expect plenty more runs from him as the tournament progresses.
  • Nathan Coulter-Nile- the strapping fast bowler delivered a maiden alongside his figures of 2-27 on Friday. He dismissed Sam Whiteman and Matthew Gikes.

MLS Team Form

The Stars had got their season off to the worst possible start with a heavy defeat against Sydney Sixers but the win on Friday could be a crucial turning point.

Melbourne Stars Predicted Playing 11

Marcus Stoinis, Joe Clarke (wk), Nick Larkin, Glenn Maxwell (c), Hilton Cartwright, Beau Webster, Andre Russell, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa, Qais Ahmad, Brody Couch
