Melbourne Stars and Brisbane Heat clash at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday evening n the 2021-22 BBL. The Stars are in 6th place with five wins from their twelve games. Brisbane Heat are a place below them after winning only three of their eleven fixtures. Read on as we preview this game. This BBL group stage fixture begins at 19:15 local time.
Melbourne Stars have lost three of their last five BBL fixtures but will fancy their chances against an equally out of form Brisbane Heat. In front of their home fans they will be desperate to give a good account of themselves.
Brisbane Heat have lost three successive BBL matches and have not won since New Year’s Day. However, they do now have their first choice players back and they should be far more competitive.

Fielding first is the usual choice of skippers at the MCG. Our prediction is that both captains will insert the opposition in this game.
MLS vs BRH Pitch Report
The surface at the MCG will provide most assistance to the spin bowlers but will also offer something for the pacers. We anticipate that any score over 150 will be competitive.
The game will begin with the temperature in the high 20s and dip to the mid 20s as the evening progresses.
