The men’s Big Bash League (BBL) is set to begin a new season, and it’s the Thunder vs. the Stars to get things started. The Stars finished sixth on the ladder last season and didn’t make the finals, while the Thunder were third and reached the Knockout round but were defeated by the Strikers.
The Thunder look better than ever with a fantastic batting trio of David Warner, Alex Hales, and Rilee Rossouw, although Warner will play fewer games due to his commitments to the Australia squad. Jason Sangha will captain the side after the departure of Usman Khawaja and there’s also the inclusion of Fazalhaq Farooqi from Afghanistan, although the team lost David Willey after he withdrew from the league after the draft.
Gurinder Sandhu, Sams and Farooqi makes a perfect Trio for Pace Department with assistance from Green in the spin area. Considering all the factors Thunders looks a more balance out of two teams.
Melbourne Stars will really miss the absence of Glenn Maxwell in the opening game as he is the Pillar of Stars Batting Lineup along side Marcus Stoinis who is also making comeback after being infected with COVID19 with Joe Burns. Batting lineup looks a bit uncertain at the top with lack of experience and with Quality Thunders Bowling attack surely will be taken consideration.
There’s a lot of excitement about fast bowler, Trent Boult, from New Zealand, who is one of the best up-and-coming swing bowlers in the game. He’s likely to be the opening bowler for the Stars in each match. Coulter nile will be his partner sharing the new ball with Boult. Spin Maestro , Adam Zampa will be the skipper of the side and also the leader in Spin Department.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
Pace bowlers always do well on this pitch in Canberra, but as opening game we cannot score very high scoring game . Score would be around 140-150 would be challenging.
