STA vs HEA Dream11 Prediction: Melbourne Stars vs Brisbane Heat– 25 January 2020 (Melbourne)
Melbourne Stars will take on Brisbane Heat in the 53rd Match of BBL 09 which will be played at Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne. Stars are already confirmed of playing the home qualifying-final but still they have lost their last 2 games and would like to get back on winning ways whereas for Brisbane, this is almost a do or die game and they need to win it anyhow.
Pitch Report – In the last game at MCG, we saw that the shot playing is not easy on this track. The ball sticks on the surface and makes it difficult for the batsmen to play their shots. Spinners will have a say in this game and the team winning the toss would be tempted to bat first.

STA vs HEA Dream11 Wicket-Keepers
Peter Handscomb (Price 8.5) played a brilliant knock in the last game and is the only good option in the keeping category.
STA vs HEA Dream11 Batsmen
- Chris Lynn (Price 10.5) – Chris Lynn has shown his brilliant form but in patches. Chris has to play as a leader now in this DO or DIE game.
- AB de Villiers (Price 10):- ABD has not been in very good form but still he is an asset and should be in the team.
- Sam Heazlett (Price 8) – Sam has looked good as an opener and he can be a handy batsman for the Heat.
[Nic Maddinson has been in poor form and can be ignored]
STA vs HEA Dream11 All-Rounders
Marnus Labuschagne (Price 8.5) flopped in the last game but he is a very solid player and he showed that in the whole Aussie season and would like to play a big knock here.
Marcus Stoinis (Price 11) and Glenn Maxwell (Price 10.5) have to be in the squad. Stoinis is the highest run-scorer of this season and has played phenomenal knocks in the tournament whereas Maxi is the 7th highest run-scorer of the season and also has 7 wickets to his name.
[Matt Renshaw has been brilliant but dropped just because of budget concerns]
STA vs HEA Dream11 Bowlers
- Dilbar Hussain (Price 8):- Dilbar will play his first game and he will be a wildcard. He would like to repeat the heroics of Haris Rauf.
- Clint Hinchcliffe (Price 8):- Clint has been a very good spinner for the Stars and was deadly in the last game too. This track will assist him too.
- Ben Laughlin (Price 8.5):- Ben has been the highest ever wicket-taker of Big-Bash and he is been in very good form lately. He will be a good pick
- Mujeeb ur Rehman (Price 8.5):- Mujeeb hasn’t been in greatest of forms but this track of MCG will surely assist him. He needs to fire in this game.
[Batsmen and All-Rounders of this game are quite expensive and that’s why a cost-cutting has been done]
Match Predition :- Brisbane Heat will be the favourites to win this game as for them it’s a DO or DIE game and they would like to play with full intensity
