SIX vs STA dream11 match today

In SIX vs STA today match prediction, lets bring out the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides.

Strengths

Sydney Sixers (SIX)

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

  • Their lower middle order looks dangerous with 3 massive six-hitters in there in the form of Dan Christian, Jason Holder and Carlos Brathwaite.
  • Josh Philippe is in subline form at the moment. The skipper Daniel Hughes has been a decent anchor so far.
  • Carlos Brathwaite bowled well in the previous game.

Melbourne Stars (STA)

  • Their middle order is power packed with Nicholas Pooran and Ben Dunk and with the wicket in Carrara oval assisting spinners, these 2 southpaws should enjoy batting in it.
  • Billy Stanlake and Liam Hatcher are forming a very good bowling pair upfront with the new ball.

Weaknesses

Sydney Sixers (SIX)

  • Their death bowling remains to be a concern and Jason Holder looked terrible with the ball in the last game.
  • The inconsistency of James Vince is creeping in for one more time in his career.

Melbourne Stars (STA)

  • The absence of Marcus Stoinis will be a huge void at the top of the order
  • Andre Fletcher is yet to show off in this season so far. He is off to a bad start.
  • The leader of the spin attack in Adam Zampa’s unavailability will be dearly missed by STA for sure.
