Sydney Thunder Vs Melbourne Stars Prediction 29/12/20
These teams are two of the stand out performers of BBL|10, and I can’t wait for this match to start.
It really promises to be a classic with two really strong sides meeting.
And with Sam Billings coming into the Thunder side, the level of quality has gone up another notch.
I was edging towards the Sixers in this one, although the return of Marcus Stoinis for the Stars did make me reconsider.
The loss of Nathan Coulter-Nile will no doubt hurt the Stars.
And although with one being a batsman, and one a bowler, I do believe the loss of Coulter-Nile negates any advantage the Stars are getting from the return of Stoinis.
With that in mind, and Sam Billings in the side, I’m going to edge towards the Thunder.
In matches that look a 50/50 call, why not go with the side with the better odds.
