STA vs HEA Betting Tips: Adam Zampa-led Melbourne Stars and Usman Khawaja-led Brisbane Heat will be appearing in the 44th encounter of the Big Bash League 2022-23 on January 16. The iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground is the designated host with 1:45 PM IST being the official starting time.

PITCH REPORT: MELBOURNE CRICKET GROUND

Melbourne Cricket Ground ranks high in the world’s list of top Cricket venues. MCG attributes quality infrastructure, a mammoth crowd capacity, large ground dimensions and balanced pitches. Batters, pacers and spin bowlers will have an equal part to play in Monday night’s contest.

TOSS PREDICTION:

Melbourne Cricket Ground often features drop-in pitches, which tend to deteriorate with the progression of the game and hence teams would ideally want to bat first. Additionally, dew has not been a notable factor so far in the competition. Bank on Brisbane Heat captain Usman Khawaja to win the toss and choose to bat.

We have rarely witnessed any marathon knocks in the shortest format at the Melbourne Cricket Ground since the start of the recently-concluded T20 World Cup (2022). This is possibly due to challenging surface conditions and large ground dimensions being present at the venue.

Khawaja, who took over Brisbane Heat’s captaincy a few days back, was in the headlines in the last week following a mammoth 195-run knock in the Test fixture against South Africa at the SCG. We back him to replicate his red-ball form in the remainder of the Big Bash League 2022-23.

The MCG surface provides genuine pace and bounce in the initial few overs, making it easier for the ball to get carried behind the wickets. Batters are bound to be tested upfront against quality bowling lineups of both sides on Monday night’s decisive encounter.

Performance of both the prominent sides has been substandard so far in the undergoing edition of the Big Bash League. Stars and Heat rank at the seventh and eighth position in the points tally respectively. Moreover, Usman Khawaja-led Brisbane Heat heads into the contest as marginal favourites and hence we back them to mark a close victory on Monday.
