Two changes to squad v Sixers

20 January 2017

The Melbourne Stars has made two changes to its squad which will take on the Sydney Sixers at the MCG tomorrow night in their chase for finals.

Liam Bowe and Jackson Coleman have been included in the squad, with Adam Zampa and Marcus Stoinis coming out to join the Australian ODI squad.

The Stars will be playing for rhinos tomorrow night.

The squad will face the Sydney Sixers in a home game tomorrow night with a win securing a home Semi-Final. Overcoming the Sixers by five wickets in last season’s clash, the boys will look to return to the winners list after their recent loss to the Heat.

Game Info

Our boys need to win tomorrow night to give themselves the best chance of playing finals and securing that home Semi.

All the action will kick off 7.25pm tomorrow at the Coliseum that is the MCG so make sure you grab your one-game membership at $15 for one MASSIVE game of cricket. You can also catch the match LIVE on Channel 10 from 7.15pm.

Playing for rhinos

One to Watch

Seb Gotch had a great debut in our game against the Heat, performing well with both the bat and the gloves. Taking the position behind the stumps in Pete’s absence, Gotchy also showed what he’s capable of with the bat, making 30 off 30 balls, our second highest knock for the night. With his lightening quick speed between the wickets, and the ability to hit the ball all around the ground, Gotchy could prove troublesome for the Sixers and we can’t wait to see what he can produce.
