The Melbourne Stars will host the Brisbane Heat in the Match 28 of the Big Bash League on Thursday night, Jan. 14, at the Melbourne Cricket Ground starting 7:10 PM local time.
As per the ESPN Cric Info reports, the Melbourne Stars are currently placed at number 3 in the Big Bash League table while the Brisbane Heat are looming at the bottom.
It has been a dismal season for Brisbane Heat with only four points to their name in seven games. Melbourne, on the other hand, are just behind table toppers Perth Scorchers and Adelaide Strikers.
David Hussey has been quite instrumental in leading his side to the top four teams in the Big Bash League. Luke Wright is in sublime form too. Scott Boland has been picked up for national duty in the five match ODI series against India. James Faulkner has been recalled to replace the injured Mitchell Starc.
The Big Bash League is in full swing and the Melbourne Cricket Ground is expected to see full house support.
We saw glimpses of Big Bash flavor in yesterday’s Australia versus India game. Chasing a mammoth total of 309, George Bailey and Captain Steve Smith took the onus upon themselves to go for a successful run chase.
Stay tuned for all the live action from MCG.
