The Adelaide Strikers is set to host the Melbourne Stars in match number 23 of the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL) 2022-23 season. The contest marks the sixth match for both sides this tournament.

The home team is currently placed at number three on the BBL 2022-23 points table, with three wins and two defeats from their five fixtures so far. However, they have lost their previous two games, thus squandering a remarkable start to their campaign which featured three wins upfront.

The Melbourne Stars, on the other hand, are languishing at number seven on the standings with a solitary win to their name. They will be desperately seeking another win in an attempt to reboot their BBL 2022 run ahead of the playoffs.

Match Prediction
