STA vs HUR Dream11 Prediction: In the final league match of the BBL 11, sixth-placed Melbourne Stars would take on the Hobart Hurricanes in an attempt to wind up the season with their heads high at the MCG. The Hurricanes scripted a narrow win over the Melbourne Renegades to seal their 7th win of the season and a total of 27 points in their kitty. While that victory crushed the hopes of a Stars’ shot at the playoffs, who have accumulated a total of 22 points so far, the Men in Green can still look to avenge the defeat they suffered at the hands of the Hobart-based franchise in their previous matchup at Bellerive Oval. For Hobart Hurricanes, the victory in their last match of the league run would certainly be a major confidence booster ahead of the knockouts, even though they’ve grabbed a comfortable seat for the Eliminator which is scheduled on January 21.

Joe Clarke Stats in T20
In the form he’s been in the BBL 11, it would be a grave mistake to ignore the Englishman from the captain or vice-captain conversations in the fantasy line-up. So far, the Englishman has amassed 384 runs across 12 innings at an average of 32.00 with 5 fifty-plus totals.
Glenn Maxwell Stats in T20
With nothing to lose in this matchup, it’s likely that the batting all-rounder could come up with a mammoth exhibition at the MCG. He’s already amassed 314 runs so far while striking over 137, which includes a hundred and a fifty. Not to forget, his exploits with the ball where he has picked 4 scalps and maintained an economy under 8.00 throughout.

Ben McDermott Stats in T20
The wicket-keeper batsman’s inclusion is a no-brainer for the fantasy line-up. He’s already aggregated 516 runs that include 2 hundreds and 2 fifties and could possibly wind up with another laud-worthy exhibition in the last match of the league stages.
Matthew Wade Stats in T20
Wade’s looked like a man on a mission since his return to the BBL 11 after announcing an indefinite break. With match-winning knocks of 83* and 48 in the last two matches against Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Renegades respectively, Wade could be backed for another top performance against the Melbourne Stars, whom he had smashed a 27-ball 39 in the last matchup, which comprised 2 fours and as many sixes
Even though the Hobart Hurricanes have sealed a playoffs birth, the Melbourne Stars look pretty confident to foil they take on the fifth-placed side. The likes of Glenn Maxwell, Joe Clarke, Marcus Stoinis and Hilton Cartwright form a solid scoring quartet for the Stars, which coupled with the bowling trio of Adam Zampa, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Ahmad Daniyal could force a victory over the Hurricanes. As per STA vs HUR today match prediction and Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes cricket betting tips, Melbourne Stars have been tipped as the favorites for this game.
