STA vs STR Dream11 Match Preview: The KFC Big Bash League – T20 will be seeing its 40th game of the latest edition, in which Melbourne Stars will play against Adelaide Strikers at Melbourne Cricket Ground, East Melbourne, Australia this Friday. This is going to be the reverse fixture and both the sides battled each other on Monday and Adelaide Strikers managed to win the game by 5 wickets.
Melbourne Stars have been underwhelming from the start of the season and are currently tailing behind at the second last position of the season table. The Stars have been through a disaster as they lost 4 of their last 5 games and will enter this game with two back to back losses against Brisbane Heat and Adelaide Strikers. Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell are the only two players trying to boost the teams performance and the rest of them are simply out of form, which is a huge concern for the team.
Adelaide Strikers didn’t really start the season on good terms but, are definitely in a far better of position than their opponents. They secured a massive win against the Stars in the reverse fixture and are pretty much capable of doing so again in this game. Wes Agar and Rashid Khan have done well with the bowling and their middle and top-order are also on a decent line.
