STA vs THU Dream11 Prediction: The Melbourne Stars will be hoping to finish the season with a win. They have failed to do so this season, winning only three games, and will be finishing the season in eighth place. The batsmen and bowlers could not complement each other and as a result did not perform as a unit, which led to defeat.
The Sydney Thunder are one of five teams contending for a playoff spot, and they will know their fate before the last championship game. If the Brisbane Heat doesn’t win the final game, the Sydney Thunder could qualify with a win, but with an unfavorable outcome, they would need to win by a wide margin to defeat the Renegades, who have an NRR of 0.027, which seems unlikely. They are coming into this match on the back of an embarrassing 125-run defeat against Sydney Sixers where they were bundled out for 62 runs.
