The 15th match of the Big Bash League 2022-23 will see Sydney Sixers take on the Melbourne Stars at the SCG in Sydney, both teams are well-matched and it will be an entertaining tussle for 2 points.
Sydney Sixers won their previous match against the Hobart Hurricanes by 6 runs in a rain-curtailed game after losing two back-to-back matches. The three-time champions and the winner of the inaugural edition, are currently at the 7th position on the points table with 2 points.
Josh Phillippe and Hayden Kerr have been the stand-out performers for the men in magenta. The Sixers have the upper hand in this contest as they are coming into this game on the back of a win whereas the Melbourne Stars will be slightly low on confidence with the loss in their previous encounter
On the other hand, the Melbourne Stars, also have a single win but have a better net run rate than the Sixers. They are on the 6th position, just above the Sydney Sixers. The Stars lost their previous encounter by 61 runs against the Perth Scorchers and will look to make a fine comeback on boxing day.
Unfortunately, Nathan Coulter Nile will not be available for the team in this fixture as he is out with an injury. Some of the senior players need to stand up in this encounter if they want to put up a fight against a well-oiled Sixers unit. Melbourne Stars have some big names missing from their squad with injuries and international commitments.
Sydney Sixers vs Melbourne Stars, 15th Match: Pitch Report
The pitch at the SCG has been a balanced one over the years, it provides enough assistance to the fast bowlers upfront and the spinners tend to be effective on this pitch in the middle over.
The batters need to get their eye in before looking to play the attacking shorts. The team winning the toss will most likely opt to bowl first and chase down the total, as there is some dew expected in the latter half of the 2nd innings.
