It will be payback day Once again in Big Bash League(BBL) 2023-24 as match 28 will feature the Melbourne Stars (STA) and the Sydney Sixers (SIX) once again and this time it will be held on the biggest stage in cricket at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground(MCG). The last time these two sides faced each other was more than 10 days ago when the Stars got the better of the Sixers winning that contest by 4 wickets with just 3 balls to spare at the Sydney Cricket Ground(SCG). The Stars will be really confident especially after they will also have the home-ground advantage in this game as well. It will again be a battle between two flamboyant all-rounder captains where Glen Maxwell's stars will look to shine and Moises Henrique's boys will look for redemption.

The Melbourne Stars might have had a really slow start to their season, but right now they seem to have found their perfect combination winning 4 games in a row to get their season underway. They are currently sitting at the number 4 spot with 8 points on the board winning 4 out of 7 games. They will want to continue their winning streak and get closer and closer to the playoffs. Their win against the Melbourne Renegades in the Melbourne derby also showed why they are one of the sides to watch out for right now.

The Sydney Sixers on the other hand have not had the best outing so far after winning 3 in a row at the start of the season. The 3 time BBL champions were looking like one of the favourites in the beginning, but the last few encounters have not been the best outing as after the loss against the Stars, they have been the victim of the rain gods in their last three encounters which include two washouts and a loss to Brisbane heat by 3 runs by the DL method. They will be looking to get back to winning ways starting with getting redemption by beating the stars at home.

STA vs SIX- Likely pitch conditions

The pitch at the iconic MCG has been a bit of a struggle for the batters lately due to the excessive uneven bounce that has made it difficult for the batters to get under the ball. But there have been instances that the pitch gets slightly better under lights, but the big dimensions of the ground still makes it tough to score initially. Overall it is another two-paced wicket that has everything for everyone. It will be a great contest to see what the approach of the players will be with great ball strikers on each team.
