Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes
BBL T20 Match Prediction & Tips
Time: 16 Dec, 11:35 AM (IST)
Series: BBL T20 Match
Venue: Melbourne Cricket Ground – Melbourne
STA vs HUR Dream11 Prediction:
- Nick Larkin is playing in his sixth BBL and is a consistent run scorer. He is our tip for Melbourne Stars’ highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Trent Boult made his debut in the tournament on Tuesday and recorded figures of 2-21. He is well worth backing as Melbourne Stars’ top wicket taker against Hobart Hurricanes.
- Ben McDermott scored 577 runs at an average of 48.08 in the 2021-22 BBL and the opener is our pick for Hobart Hurricanes’ highest run scorer in this game. Riley Meredith took 16 wickets across last year’s competition and is a strike bowler. He is a strong choice for Hobart Hurricanes’ top wicket taker against Melbourne Stars.
- After a very impressive tournament last year, we recommend Ben McDermott to hit over 35.5 runs in this fixture.

Weather & Pitch Report:
It will be sunny with some cloud cover at times on Friday evening in Melbourne. There is no chance of rain with the temperature likely to be around 16 degrees throughout.
There is normally something for both the quick and spin bowlers at the MCG. The pitch has got quicker in recent years which is good news for the stroke making batters.
Teams batting first have a stronger record at the MCG in the BBL and we predict that both skippers will want to bat first in this game.

STA vs HUR TEAM NEWS:
STA Team News:
After losing by only one wicket in their season opener to Sydney Thunder on Tuesday, we anticipate only one enforced change for Melbourne Stars ahead of this game. Experienced batter Joe Burns has a hamstring injury and is likely to be replaced by Campbell Kellaway who will make his BBL debut.
HUR Team News:
We expect to see at least four debuts for Hobart Hurricanes with Asif Ali, Paddy Dooley, Shadab Khan and Jimmy Neesham all in line to make their first appearance. The Hurricanes made a poor start to last year’s tournament and will be keen to get a win in their opening game.
STA vs HUR Pre-Toss LineUps:
Joe Clarke (wk)
M Wade (c) (wk)
Melbourne Stars very nearly got off to a winning start against Sydney Thunder but in the end were beaten by a narrow margin. We expect Hobart Hurricanes, with their exceptional top order batting, to be a much tougher opposition for the Stars in this match. Overall we are backing Hobart Hurricanes to get the win at the MCG in this game.
Hobart Hurricanes are favorites to beat Melbourne Stars
STA Key Players:
Nick Larkin –
The experienced right-handed top order batter looked in good form in the opening match. He has a top score of 83 not out in the BBL.
Marcus Stoinis –
The batting all-rounder began the tournament with a golden duck but, with Joe Burns out of the side, Stoinis’ big hitting will be needed in this match.
Trent Boult –
The New Zealander enjoyed his first BBL experience although he ended up on the losing side. He dismissed Matthew Gilkes and Rilee Rossouw in the first over and will be looking to do something similar here.
HUR Key Players:
Ben McDermott –
The 28 year old right-hander hit two centuries and finished as the tournament leading run scorer in the 2021-22 BBL season. He will be eager to get this season up and running.
D’Arcy Short –
After hitting 444 runs in last year’s BBL campaign, Short will be looking forward to getting his latest campaign underway. Expect him to keep the scoreboard moving without taking risks in this match.
Riley Meredith –
The pace bowler has been in good form across other formats in recent weeks. He has taken 59 BBL wickets from 45 games since making his debut in the 2017-18 tournament.
