Today Match Prediction Perth Scorchers vs Melbourne Stars:
Melbourne Stars will win 31st march of Big Bash League 2016….
Squad: Ashton Agar, Cameron Bancroft, Jason Behrendorff, Michael Carberry (Eng), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Marcus Harris, Brad Hogg, Michael Klinger, Simon Mackin, Mitch Marsh, Shaun Marsh, James Muirhead, Joel Paris, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, David Willey (Eng), Adam Voges, Sam Whiteman.
In: Cameron Bancroft, Simon Mackin, David Willey.
Out: Yasir Arafat, Hilton Cartwright.
Availability: Adam Voges will miss most of the first half due to Test duty. Shaun Marsh will miss at least the same, and more if he earns an international recall, while Mitch Marsh and Nathan Coulter-Nile are unlikely to play much due to national duty. Joel Paris has the potential to surge into limited-overs contention.
Strengths: If they can be in a decent position at the half-way mark of the season it should be enough for a fifth consecutive finals berth, given the return of Voges and probably Mitch Marsh. Probably the best fielding team in the competition, even with veterans Carberry, Klinger and Hogg, and benefit from what is clearly the biggest home-ground advantage in the competition, thanks to their passionate fans.
Weaknesses: Heavily affected by international selection, but what is set to hurt them even more are the ongoing doubts about the fitness of their best bowler, Jason Behrendorff. Even if the left-armer is cleared to play, despite ongoing back problems, he is unlikely to be able to reach the heights of recent seasons.
Key Player: Michael Klinger. If age was not a factor, the 35-year-old would surely be playing limited-overs internationals, based on his remarkable white-ball record in recent years in particular. Klinger is so driven to succeed he has tailored his fitness training to both enable him to hit the ball longer and run at high intensity for an entire 20-over innings, Scores at a faster rate than you would expect.
One To Watch: David Willey. One of the beneficiaries of England’s dramatic shift in limited-overs selection since the World Cup, in favouring promising players at domestic level over long-term Test players. The son of former umpire Peter Willey is a bowling all-rounder who is capable of clearing the boundary late in innings. His left-arm seam bowling could also help fill the void of Behrendorff if, as expected, injury curtails his availability.
Squad: Michael Beer, Scott Boland, James Faulkner, Seb Gotch, Evan Gulbis, Peter Handscomb, Sam Harper, John Hastings, Ben Hilfenhaus, David Hussey, Glenn Maxwell, Kevin Pietersen (Eng), Rob Quiney, Marcus Stoinis, Tom Triffitt, Daniel Worrall, Luke Wright, Adam Zampa.
In: Seb Gotch, Sam Harper, Evan Gulbis (Hurricanes), Ben Hilfenhaus (Hurricanes), Adam Zampa (Strikers).
Out: Jackson Bird (Sixers), Luke Feldman (Heat), Alex Keath (Strikers), Clint Mckay (Thunder), Clive Rose (Hurricanes), Cameron White (Renegades),
Availability: Will lose Faulkner and Maxwell for the second half. Hastings is an outside chance to be called up by Australia too, given his impressive end to the one-day series in England in July.
Strengths: Like Hobart, seem to have all bases covered in terms of how their squad has been compiled. Even when Maxwell and Faulkner depart there should be enough depth, probably with the likes of Rob Quiney and Evan Gulbis, to soften the blow. Their batting is so strong it is a reminder of the folly of signing Michael Clarke, who on white-ball ability alone, would have struggled to command a spot.
Weaknesses: Jackson Bird has clearly been their most dependable paceman over the past four years, so his exit will be sorely felt. While they boast good pace depth, none fit into the express-pace category, which could hinder their pursuit of new-ball wickets.
Key Player: Kevin Pietersen. Had an excellent debut season. Is now seemingly at peace with the end of his international career, meaning he can give his entire focus to competitions like these. Impressed while preparing for the BBL in South Africa’s domestic Twenty20 competition.
One To Watch: Adam Zampa. Could be one of the recruits of the season. Is an aggressive leg-spinner and a good fielder, and has the capability to bat as high as No.7. Impressing here could see him surge into contention for the World Twenty20.
