SIX vs STA: Sydney Sixers will host league leaders Melbourne Stars in the first game on Monday in the Big Bash League 2019-20. The Stars have been destructive with their approach as they have won 10 of their 11 games. They already have confirmed the top spot in the points table and also booked a home Qualifier. Sydney Sixers, on the other hand, have won their 6 games out of 10. However, they have seen a slight dip in their form in recent games as they haven’t registered a win in their last 3 games. The Stars defeated the Sixers comprehensively by 44 runs when these 2 sides met earlier this season. Sydney Sixers, however, would be looking to avenge their loss and also bounce back from the heavy defeat by the hands of the Thunder in their last game.
