STA vs SIX Dream11 prediction

Sydney Sixers play Melbourne Stars in the reverse fixture of Big Bash League 2021-22. The Sixers recorded a massive 152-run win over the Stars in the first match this season. The defending champions have seven points from three outings and are coming off a defeat in their previous fixture against Hobart Hurricanes.

STA vs SIX Dream11 team tips for Big Bash League 2021-22

Top tip: Best batter

Melbourne Stars' Marcus Stoinis is a top batting pick for this match. The 32-year-old is a destructive batter at the top of the order and has the ability to change the course of the match in a matter of a few overs. Stoinis has plenty of experience in T20 cricket with over 4000 runs to his name. Selected by 87 percent of the fantasy users, Marcus Stoinis will be a worthy inclusion for this game. 

Top tip: Best bowler

Qais Ahmad of Melbourne Stars will be the best choice from the bowlers’ category. The Afghan leg-spinner has three wickets in two outings this season and is likely to trouble the Sixers’ on Wednesday. The 21-year-old returned with bowling figures of 2/17 in his previous game against Sydney Thunder and is a difficult bowler to score against especially in the middle-overs. At 8.5 credits, Qais Ahmad will be a worthy budget pick. 

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Glenn Maxwell will be an excellent all-round option for this game. The Stars’ captain is yet to set the tournament on fire this year but given his T20 credentials, is too good a player to be ignored. The 33-year-old is a dangerous striker of the ball and will play the finishers’ role for his team. He is also a handy bowler with the knack of breaking crucial partnerships. Selected by 87 per cent of the fantasy users, Glenn Maxwell will be the player to watch out for in this fixture. 

Amongst the wicket-keepers, picking Josh Philippe of Sydney Sixers in the fantasy team is a no-brainer. The 24-year-old has amassed 160 runs in three innings this season at a whopping strike-rate of 153. The right-hander has already registered two half-centuries in the tournament and at 9.5 credits is a worthy pick in any fantasy team.

STA playing XI (probable): Marcus Stoinis, Joe Clarke (wicket-keeper), Glenn Maxwell (captain), Nick Larkin, Hilton Cartwright, Andre Russell, Beau Webster, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa, Qais Ahmad, Brody Couch
