    SIX vs STA Pitch Report 

    The venue has hosted one game in the tournament so far. It was a curtailed game and saw plenty of runs. A total of 268 runs were hammered in just 28 overs. Expect the same again as batters will find it easy to score while the pacers may find it a nightmare. The spinners could be the X factor.

    SIX Playing 11 

    • The Sixers have announced an unchanged 16-member squad for this match.
    • Kurtis Patterson and Josh Philippe should open the innings with the likes of James Vince handling the middle order.
    • Steve O’Keefe’s spin will play a vital role while Sean Abbott is a key bowler in middle overs and he could be among the wickets.

    STA Playing 11 

    • The Stars have made one change to their squad. They have rested Nathan Coulter-Nile for this game.
    • The combination of Joe Clarke and Thomas Rogers looks set to open the innings with Marcus Stoinis and Nick Larkin beefing up the middle order.
    • Luke Wood can once again be the point of difference with Adam Zampa’s spin playing a key role at the SCG

    Marcus Stoinis is having a rough patch. But he is too good a batter to miss many. He can make a comeback in this game as his T20 record is outstanding.

    213 4323 147* 30.23 135.55 1/21

    Luke Wood bagged a five-wicket hall in the last game. He may not get the same assistance from the pitch here, but considering his form and confidence its advisable to back him.
