Equation is simple for the Stars tonight. Win and they are in the semi finals and will play Perth.

I'm not overthinking this one, Stars will have too much firepower for the Strikers tonight with the added motivational edge. Strikers have arguably the worst bowling attack in the competition and based on their batting effort against the Sixers last start their batting is not much better.

Stars @ 1.74 for me

Strikers have an outside chance to qualify but would have to win by 84 runs

Senator Faulkner is out for the stars in tonights game.....He is in the top 5 T20 bowlers in the country....Take him out and the bowling looks average....In saying that, the strikers have been woeful against spin, Warne could have a field day...

Strikers have brought in James Franklin, a good all rounder, a decent bowler which will bolster there bowling and it a very hard hitter of the ball........

The batting IMO is pretty even, Fergie is due to get more than 2 runs...

I reckon the best value is to wait in game.......

James is very very good player. Half way through last year he was playing like a GOD for NZ it was amazing wat he was doing, more of a batter than a bowler now.

This is a MASSIVE ground......

160 will be a good score here.....

Nothing like last night at the SCG where one side of the ground had a boundary that was 4 metres long

Owais Shah is the SMARTEST player in the comp....

I love it when he backs away, the bowler follows him and then he goes back in front of the stumps to get the wide.....That is old school.....Used to see that from Dean Jones, Waugh, Border etc......No one else does it now
