  • Dan Christian scored 50 off 16 balls, the second fastest half-century in BBL history.
  • The Stars are unbeaten in BBL10.

Sydney Sixers Form


The Sydney Sixers overcame a shock loss to the Hobart Hurricanes in the first game of BBL10 by producing the biggest victory in BBL history over the Melbourne.

Scoring 205 that night, the Sixers rolled the Renegades for 60 to land a record 145-run victory.

Following a monstrous 15 ball half-century by Dan Christian against the Strikers, the Sixers defeated Adelaide by 38 runs in their latest match.

Sixers Team News


The Sixers aren’t expected to make many changes to their side ahead of their match against the Stars.

Dan Christian has been fulfilling a major role in the middle of the innings in both bowling and batting, while their top order continues to bat consistently.

Melbourne Stars Form


One of the most consistent teams in BBL history, the Stars have enjoyed yet another strong start to BBL10 with two wins and a draw from three matches.

After easily defeating the Brisbane Heat in their first match of the season, the Stars easily beat the Sydney Thunder. Their latest match over the Scorchers was washed out.

Towering opener bowler Billy Stanlake has been a terrific acquisition for the Stars, but it was Nic Maddinson who starred last game, taking 2/8.

Stars Team News


The Stars aren’t expected to make any major changes for their match at the Metricon Stadium. Led by superstar captain Glenn Maxwell, they are one of the strongest sides in the competition.
