STA vs HUR Dream11 Prediction Big Bash League T20 Live Score, Pitch Report, Player Stats, Dream11 Team for Today’s Match


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.
