BBL 2022-23 Betting Tips: The iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground is all set to host an approaching Big Bash League encounter between Melbourne Stars and Adelaide Strikers on Thursday (January 12). The enthralling contest will formally commence at 1:45 PM Indian Time.

PITCH REPORT: MELBOURNE CRICKET GROUND

Melbourne Cricket Ground, also known as the MCG is Australia’s primary Cricket ground. The venue hosts the home fixtures of Melbourne Strikers in the Big Bash League. MCG provides balanced surfaces with an equal amount of assistance for both batters and bowlers.

TOSS PREDICTION:

MCG often uses drop-in pitches, which tend to deteriorate with the progression of the game. Hence, choosing to bat after winning the toss will not be a bad idea. We suggest you rely on Adelaide Strikers’ skipper Travis Head to make a correct call at the toss and decide to bat first.

Even though Stars and Strikers hallmark well-balanced batting lineups, we do not expect any marathon innings on Thursday. MCG features large ground dimensions and the pitches often get sluggish, especially in the latter part of the game. It ultimately makes batsmanship very challenging.

STA vs STR FINAL VERDICT:

It will possibly be the best chance for Melbourne Stars to make a comeback in the ongoing tournament. The Melbourne-based side is on the verge of facing an early elimination and playing at their home ground will certainly help the team to ease off the pressure.

At the same time, It is impossible to overlook Adelaide Strikers’ performance so far in the competition. Strikers currently rank at the third position in the points tally with a whopping 10 points to their name and hence we bank on them to register another triumph on Thursday.
