Matches are coming thick and fast in the Big Bash League (BBL) 2022-23, and we head onto another doubleheader Friday. 

Melbourne Stars square off against Perth Scorchers for the initial game of the day at the Junction Oval, Melbourne. This is the first game at St Kilda and the second in the history of BBL. 

Both sides have won and lost a solitary game thus far in the competition. The Stars arrive from a victory against the Hobart Hurricanes, while the Scorchers fell short by eight runs against the same team in their latest encounter. 

We shall quickly gaze through the necessities and tips for building a fantasy team for the particular clash.

Ground Stats

BBL Matches Played: 1
Matches Won Batting First: 1
Matches Won Batting Second: 0

The venue hosted just a single match here and that was in the last season of BBL. Perth Scorchers emerged victorious on that match defeating the home side Melbourne Stars by 50 runs. With such a short sample space, it is difficult to decide the nature of the ground.

Three Must Picks for the Match

Jhye Richardson- After his injury, the right-arm pacer announced his return at the BBL by bagging a four-for and three-for in successive games against Sydney Sixers and Hobart Hurricanes. He has been lethal with the new ball and mixed the pace quite wittily during the slog overs.

 Joe Clarke- The right-handed top-order batter notched the first century of the ongoing tournament in their latest match. The last time the Melbourne-based franchise played at this venue, Clarke scored fifty-two runs. The onus of offering a rollicking start to the side is on him, and he should be a definite pick for the fantasy team of this encounter.

Nathan Coulter-Nile- The right-handed allrounder is a familiar member of the Stars set-up, and he proved the worth of his experience with stellar performances in the previous two matches of the Stars. Coulter-Nile bagged five wickets from two games and is more than a handy batter in the lower-middle order.

Worth the risk Picks

 1.Andrew Tye- A clever operator of the cricket ball, Tye is one of the best in the business when it comes to bowling in the slog overs of white ball cricket. He is a consistent wicket-taker and uses the change of pace well to outfox the opponent. The tall bowler has four wickets under his name in the two matches he participated in.

2. Adam Zampa- The leg-spinner is worth a risky option when it comes to creating a fantasy team. Zampa varies the wrong'un amidst the leg break quite well and has the knack for bagging wickets. The skipper of the Stars scalped five wickets in two matches.
