Melbourne Stars going to host top ranked Sydney Sixers to play the final league match of BBL 2019 at MCG on Sunday.
While the Sixers already qualify for the semi-final spot and would hope for a home clash.
The Stars are in a puzzling situation as only a victory would seal their spot for the semis, and that too, against the Hurricanes.
With the return of several high-profile players to both sides, the stakes are high with the semi-finals on the horizon.
But this crucial match between the Melbourne Stars and the Sydney Sixers is equally important for both teams.
A win here will have its own set of advantages for either of the teams.
However, it is more crucial for the Stars to register a victory, for they’ll be knocked out if they lose.
The Brisbane Heat team, after the superlative performance in the last game, will be glued to the television hoping that the Stars lose.
It’ll help them qualify for the finals in case that happens. On the other hand, the Sixers will be hunting for a home semi-final with a win here.
The Melbourne Stars have retained the same squad from their last game.
