MST vs PSC Prediction, 11Wickets Fantasy Cricket Tips: Playing XI, Pitch Report and Injury Update – BBL 2020-21, Match 50
Melbourne Stars are expected to emerge victorious in this game.
Updated - Jan 22, 2021 7:42 pm
The 50th match of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2020-21 will be played between Perth Scorchers and Melbourne Stars at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne.
The match is scheduled to start at 01:45 PM IST (07:15 PM local time). It will be live on Sony Ten Network and can be streamed live on Sony LIV.
Perth Scorchers pulled off a clinical win against Hobart Hurricanes today, which has handed them the ticket to the playoffs. However, as is the case in the Indian Premier League, the top two teams also get more than one go at the playoffs in the BBL.
Hence, the target for Ashton Turner & Co. will now be to seal a top two finish. On the other hand, Melbourne Stars will simply be ecstatic if they manage to make it to the playoffs. They are coming into this game on the back of a defeat, but two consecutive wins from here on should confirm their berth in the next stage.
