Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne Stadium, Pitch Report: Batting And Bowling Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Sixers, 31st Match Preview (1/6/23): MLS vs SYS, 31st Match, Big Bash League 2022-23 – Live Cricket Score

The Sixers have been one of the top teams this season, winning four of their first eight games. Due to rain, their previous game against the Brisbane Heat was called off. A win in this game will enable the runner-up from last year climb to the top of the points standings. This season, the Stars have had a dismal performance.

They are in bottom position in the points standings, with only two victories in seven games, and have already fallen to the Sixers this season. On Friday (January 6), the Melbourne Stars (STA) will face the Sydney Sixers (SIX) in the 31st game of the current Big Bash League 2022 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Match Details:

  • Match: Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Sixers.

Pitch Report

The pitch at the MCG has been good for batting, but not so good for chasing. Scores in excess of 150 runs may be difficult to come by. Winning the toss and batting first should be the strategy of choice.

Melbourne Cricket Ground is without a doubt one of the top T20 venues in the world. This is one of those venues where practically everyone can get some sort of assistance. The surface is suitable for batting, but due to the larger boundaries of the stadium, bowlers are also involved.

So far, two BBL 12 matches have been played here, with the average first innings score of 162 runs and both matches were won by the teams batting first. At the MCG, a drop-in pitch with an even amount of bounce will be utilised, and the batsmen will enjoy their time in the middle.
