The Melbourne Stars play against the Sydney Thunder in the 7th BBL match at MCG, December 10th.
The Melbourne Stars lost in the tournament opening to defending Sydney Sixers with an incredible 152 races. Skipper Glenn Maxwell he will have to deal with a number of issues because his side seems to be missing what it takes to compete on such a big stage.
While other bowlers missed the tracks, Brody Couch took two scalps, Maxwell and Sam Rainbird they asked for one wicket each, but failed to stop the flow of the run. None of the attackers succeeded as the stars rallied for 61 as they chased a huge target of 214 runs.
The Thunder had a rather desirable start to their tournament as they beat a quality Brisbane Heat team in their tournament opening. The first bowling alley, the Thunder bowling line, limited Heat Batting’s explosive command to a modest 140 runs.
Daniel Sams (3/22), Gurinder Sandhu (2/17) and Nathan McAndrew (2/33) were the bowlers ’choice. They ensured that the Heat change failed to gather any momentum.
Having lost his wounds, Sam Billings and Alex Ross ensured that Thunder stayed on track to chase the target. Billings scored a quick 36-ball 45 and Ross scored a 46-ball 61 ensuring the Thunder chased the target in 17.1 overs. Matthew Gilles played an important cameo, scoring 10 balls 20.
