STA vs HUR Today Match Prediction
Melbourne Stars will win this game. The top order will have to do the hard task for them to win this one, as the bowling of Hobart is going well. With Stoinis and Fletcher at the top, they make this batting lineup look so strong, but are unable to bring score for their team to win a game. The bowling department is decent but can trouble the batting of Hobart. They should be able to restrict the opposition to an easily chasing score but will have a big job to do in this game. Maxwell and Pooran can do the chase or put some good runs at the end easily. Both are a good team and are very dependable on their star players. Stars are looking for a win both to climb up on the points table. It will be fascinating to see which team wins the STA vs HUR Today match prediction.
