On Tuesday, January 3, the Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades will square off in Match No. 27 of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2022-23. The game will be held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The Stars, led by Adam Zampa, are in seventh place in the points standings with four points and a -0.379 net run rate.
After deciding to bat first, the Stars put up a respectable 186 for the cost of seven wickets. Marcus Stoinis made full use of his long handle, scoring 74 from 35 balls with five fours and six sixes. Following that, the Stars limited the Strikers to 178 in 20 overs.
The Melbourne Cricket Ground surface has been good for batting. However, quick bowlers are more likely to benefit from the surface. Batting first after winning the toss should be the strategy for teams going ahead.
For the time being, there is no possibility of rain, and the playing conditions will be pleasant. Temperatures will be in the teens Celsius, with humidity in the 60s.
