The bottom two sides in the 2021-22 BBL, Melbourne Stars and Adelaide Strikers, go head to head on Monday evening at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The Stars are bottom of the table with three wins from eight games in the tournament. Adelaide Strikers are three points above the Stars in 7th place. Read on as we preview this game. This BBL fixture begins at 19:15 local time.
Melbourne Stars have had to call up new players with many of their first choice selections currently isolating. They will fancy their chances against Adelaide Strikers but have a tough assignment ahead of them.
Adelaide Strikers have had a very poor tournament but have match winners in their squad. If Peter Siddle can produce another 5-wicket haul then they will be hard to beat.
