MELBOURNE S VS. SYDNEY T: AUSTRALIA T20 LEAGUE 2021-22, MATCH 7 | PREDICTION, PLAYING 11 AND FANTASY CRICKET TIPS

Melbourne S take on Sydney T in Match 7 of the Australia T20 League 2021-22 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday evening.

Melbourne S had a disappointing first game, losing by a massive 152 runs. The batting unit could not get going and got dismissed for a partly total of 61 runs. The team will be delighted with the return of players like Qais Ahmed, Andre Russell, Marcus Stoinis, and Nathan Coulter-Nile in this match. 

On the other hand, Sydney T started their season on a winning note. After being 32/3 early in the chase, Alex Ross and Sam Billings shared a massive unbeaten partnership to take their team to victory in the match. They will aim to continue their winning momentum against Melbourne S too.

Weather Report

The temperature should be around 17 degrees when the game starts, with quite a bit of cloud cover.

Pitch Report

The surface at the MCG is a batter-friendly wicket with a fast outfield. But the huge ground dimensions will help the bowlers to take wickets too. Expect a good contest between the bat and ball here. The average first-innings score during the T20s played on this ground last season was 171.

Toss

The team batting first won 4 out of the 6 T20s played here last season. A first-innings score of around 175 runs can be pretty competitive on this ground.

Top Fantasy Picks

Wicketkeeper

  • Sam Billings played a measured innings in the previous match to win the match for Sydney T. His unbeaten knock of 44 runs will give him a big confidence boost coming here. He will look to continue his good form in this match.

Batter

  • Alex Hales got out without scoring in the last game and will be itching to bounce back in this match. He was in sensational form in the last edition, hitting at a monster strike rate of 161.6. Expect him to be aggressive at the top of the order and make a big score.

All-Rounder

  • Glenn Maxwell is a game-changer and match-winner in the T20 format. He looked a little rusty with the bat in the previous game, but he will look to go big in front of the home crowd. He took 1/17 in his 2-over spell in the last match against Sydney S.

Bowler

  • Adam Zampa had a poor first game against the other Sydney team, going for 34 runs in his 4 overs without any success. He is one of the most experienced bowlers in the Melbourne line-up and will look to get back into his wicket-taking form here.
