Could be a cracking game.  2 of the most explosive teams.  Anything could happen. 

Line around 170.5

Not sure what to do. Had a small bet on Heat for no particular reason. May try and lay Stars sub 1.5 and back them over evens.

i have had loss after loss on this tourney but all dwarfed by my return on the ashes tests.

Pietersen looks confident.  On Stars for a bit.  Only very small, although full bank.  lol

Small bet on Stars at 3.05.

No sixes so far, wonder if Baz and Lynn will struggle as well.
Report Charlie January 2, 2018 9:23 AM GMT
Is this just poor batting, good bowling, tricky pitch or a combination of all three?
Report Hamlin January 2, 2018 9:25 AM GMT
I think a poor powerplay left them in a bad situation. Spinners pinned them down, most of the Stars hitters are pace bullies

Baz + Lynn opening, they could win the game in the PP.
If Stars get through the PP and still in the game, think they will go close to defending it

Really want to lump Heat here but will wait for a few overs. Only problem being if they get off to a flier odds will be under 1.2 quickly. Stars three or four spinners and Heat have a long tail as well. Maybe not as straight forward as I first thought.
Report Hamlin January 2, 2018 9:49 AM GMT
I think its all on the powerplay, if Lynn and Baz can get the rate closer to 6 an over after the PP then it should take the pressure off. If they go early then a long tail might struggle.
Report BJT January 2, 2018 9:55 AM GMT
Tough one here.

Spin 8 overs, 4/30   @3.75
Pace 12 overs, 2/109 @9.08

Got them scoring above the run rate in 9 overs.  13 runs is the biggest over.

Looks to me like the pitch was good enough, except for spin.  Melbourne would need to better restrict Heat with spin that 4/30 from 8.  Not sure it happens.  Don't think they have the same quality.

I am following my rule here though for the first time in a while, and not having a position between innings.  Start fresh.


Not sure my opinion differs really than others in here.  Game could be over inside the first few overs.  Either way.

Personal opinion, around 15 short.  Probably around 1.55 Heat....

McCullum goes at 176 without being out against left armers apparently.
