The Melbourne Stars and Brisbane Heat will begin their campaign in the second match. Glenn Maxwell will be looking to lead from the front for the Stars after a brilliant limited-overs series against India. On the other hand, Chris Lynn, who spent the entire 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on the bench for the Mumbai Indians, will lead the Brisbane Heat.
The Melbourne Stars are packed with national team stars including Marcus Stoinis, Adam Zampa and Nathan Coulter-Nile. In their line-up, they also have Ben Dunk, who is a T20 freelancer and can tear apart any bowling attack. Mujeeb ur Rahman, who has been tested positive for COVID-19, will be absent from Brisbane Heat. Apart from Chris Lynn, they will look up to experienced players such as Ben Laughlin and Tom Cooper.
In the second match of the BBL, no chance of precipitation is expected in the capital of Australia. The temperature during the game will be about 13-16 degrees Celsius.
Last week, Australia and India played the T20I at the venue. The visitors choose to bat first to take the lead before defending 161. Spinners picked up a total of five wickets out of 14 to fall. Despite the spinners’ supremacy in the second innings, the team winning the toss is supposed to bat first.
