Stars name semi-final squad v Scorchers

23 January 2017

The Melbourne Stars has made two changes to its squad to face the Perth Scorchers in their semi final match at the WACA on Tuesday.

Marcus Stoinis and Dan Worrall have come into the 13-player squad for Sam Harper and Cameron Gannon.

When the boys last faced the Scorchers at the Furnace, they had a terrific seven-wicket win, keeping the Scorchers’ big hitters to small totals by taking early wickets. Beery was named Player of the Match after he snagged two wickets for just 12 runs off his four overs.

Game Info

We play in the first of the two Big Bash Semi-Finals so will face the Scorchers at the WACA on Tuesday night. All the action will be shown LIVE on Channel 10 from 7.30pm so strap yourselves in Stars fans; we have a fantastic game of cricket coming your way!

One to Watch

Stoin is a welcome addition to the squad this week and aren’t we glad to have him back! His bowling has been pretty good for us this season and we know the damage he can do with the bat. Last time we took on the Scorchers Stoin made a crucial 40* off just 23 balls and really accelerated our run rate when we needed it. The boys from the Furnace will definitely need to lookout for this allrounder!
