Lets point out the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides in SCO vs STA today match prediction

Strengths

What has been the biggest highlight of India's tour of Australia 2020-21?

Perth Scorchers (SCO)

  • They have a well balanced unit. They missed the services of Ashton Agar who has been a vital cog in their setup for ages now. They might get the services of him in this game if he is fit.
  • Their fast bowling battery is one of the most versatile attacks in this competition.
  • Their middle order is packed with six-hitters

Melbourne Stars (STA)

  • They are the team to beat at the moment. They have in-form batters all the way through.
  • Liam Hatcher who came in as replacement for Nathan Coulter-Nile was impressive in the previous game.

Weaknesses

Perth Scorchers (SCO)

  • The form of Colin Munro who is the only southpaw in the top 6 has been a major concern.
  • They might face some trouble in attacking spinners in middle overs.

Melbourne Stars (STA)

  • Their 5th bowling option is one thing that opposition teams would like to take advantage of.

SCO vs STA dream11 team prediction tips

There are some big names in both the sides and lets see some of the important names in SCO vs STA dream11 prediction

Marcus Stoinis– He came out all guns blazing in the previous game and scored 61 runs off 37 balls at the top of the order. Perth have a strong bowling lineup but Marcus Stoinis is in terrific form and is a reliable pick for fantasy teams

Glenn Maxwell– The game changer has been in unbelievable form off late and is seeing the ball like a football. He floats in the batting order and also bowls some handful of oves. He is always a worthy pick

Ashton Turner– He looked in ominous form in the game against Renegades but ran out himself which cut short his innings. He plays in the crucial #5 spot and can be gambled by making him as the captain in grand leagues

Andre Tye- If SCO are bowling first, he is a must in each and every fantasy team. He bowls at death and can pick some really cheap wickets on the way.

Other picks: Adam Zampa, Fawad Ahmed, Joe Clarke and Colin Munro can all be decent picks.

Today SCO vs STA match score– The average score batting first here is around 190
