India Fantasy Predictions:
Melbourne started the season under a dream scenario and won 10 of their first 11 games. However, four consecutive losses put them on the verge of elimination if not for a valiant effort by Nick Larkin. The worst fear for the Melbourne team in the season has been facing Sydney Sixers against whom they have lost two in their run of four losses. The Stars must be looking for a victory and end the run of losses against Stars. They have strong batting and Stoinis is in Midas touch whereas the team found a new talisman in Nick Larkin in the challenger game. They also have a better team on papers when compared to Sixers. However, the biggest disadvantage for them in the insane amount of experience present in Sixers camp. Moises Henriques, a veteran in the format, is leading them whereas Steve Smith provides a sense of calmness in the team. Therefore, India fantasy believes that Sydney Sixers will win the final of the big bash league and the win prediction will hold.
