Melbourne Stars and Sydney Thunder will go head to head for the second time at Carrara Oval, Queensland tomorrow. Both the sides started their BBL 2019 campaign against each other in which the latter turned out to be the winner by 15 runs under the DLS method.
Both the teams first met at Manuka Oval, Canberra. Opting to bowl first after winning the toss, Stars invited Sydney Thunder to set the target. Put into bat, Sydney Thunder posted 181-5, courtesy Jason Sangha (63* of 36) and Daniel Sams (34 of 21). Adam Zampa and Sandeep Lamichhane shared two wickets each for Stars.
In response, the match was reduced to eight overs due to rain and Stars fell short of 15 runs while chasing the revised target of 90 runs. Stars top order failed miserably and Nick Larkin (28 of 13) was the top scorer for the side.
Thunders are placed third in the points table with three wins from five encounters while Melbourne Stars are reeling at the fifth spot with two wins and two defeats in four encounters. It will be interesting to watch both the sides coming face to face again for a full-fledged game.
