Perth Scorchers Vs Melbourne Stars Prediction 16/12/20
The Scorchers do look a strong unit, and as I alluded too earlier, I think they have the batsmen to come good in this competition.
Melbourne Stars are just looking like the team to beat at the moment. And in Stoinis, Maxwell and Zampa, they have match winners throughout the team.
They will also have the small matter of Nathan Coulter-Nile being available for this one, after he was rested for the win over Sydney Thunder – he took 4/10 the previous day in the win over Brisbane Heat.
The Scorchers will come good, and it could very well be in this match. But how can you back against Glenn Maxwell and his Melbourne Stars at the moment?
