Who will win Stars vs Sixers?

Stars vs Sixers

After night 1 of the season you'd have had to search far and wide to find someone who would tip the Melbourne Stars for the title. But the last couple of games has seen them dig in for the fight and produce 2 gutsy wins in a row against the Sydney Thunder.

On Sunday night it was Andre Russell with 42 not out off just 21 balls, combining with Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis to help deliver a competitive score, and some tight bowling at the death saw them home again.

The 2-time defending champion Sydney Sixers were outstanding early in the season but lost control with the ball in game 3 as the Hurricanes plundered them to all corners of the SCG.

They still look capable of posting massive scores, so if they can have the likes of Chris Jordan and Tom Curran tighten up with the ball we still feel they are the more dynamic of the 2 sides.

The Sixers have also won 6 in a row against the Stars, having been on the wrong side of the ledger in 7 of the previous 11 before that. Our prediction is lucky number 7 will come on Wednesday night.
