Melbourne Stars 2021 – Squad, Fixtures, Captain, Live Streaming

Melbourne Stars is one of the most unluckiest franchise in Big Bash League’s history. They have played 3 finals but have failed to win any of them. They were the finalists in 2015, 2018 and 2019 editions of BBL but they failed to get the job done every-time. The Stars would hope that the jinx of failing in the finals will finally end in BBL 2021.

Melbourne Star Squad 2021

Melbourne Star Team combination in 2021 is one of the lethals when it comes to team sheet.Led by explosive Glen Maxwell, followed by Stoinis, Burns and England’s Joe Clark on batting lineup. 3 international signings from Pakistan in fast bowler Haris Rauf, Ahmed Dnaiyal and young spinner Syed Fardoun.

Melbourne Stars Players List 2021

Qais Ahmad, Joe Burns, Hilton Cartwright, Joe Clarke, Brody Couch, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Sam Elliott, Syed Faridoun, Liam Hatcher, Clint Hinchcliffe, Nick Larkin, Glenn Maxwell, Peter Nevill, Tom O’Connell, Sam Rainbird, Marcus Stoinis, Beau Webster, Adam Zampa, Haris Rauf, Ahmed Daniyal

Melbourne Stars Batsmen 2021

Melbourne Star don’t have a star studded batting lineup but their specialized batsmen look promising. Joe Burns, Nick Larkins and Beau Webster have got great numbers in T20 Cricket. Apart from Burns, the other two are averaging over 30 in the shortest format of the game and all 3 of them have a strike rate of 120+. Clint Hinchliffe is a potential talent in this batting lineup.

Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Hilton Cartwright are all-rounders but can single handedly win matches with the bat if needed.

Melbourne Stars All-Rounders 2021:

Two of the best Australian All-Rounders currently, Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis are a part of Melbourne Star. Both are in good form and are proven best all-rounders of the shortest format. Apart from these two, Sam Rainbird and Hilton Cartwright are also part of the all-rounders pool of Melbourne Stars. 

Sam Rainbird has expertise with the ball while he can bat a little bit while the case is opposite with Hilton Cartwright, who bats really well and bowls a little bit.

Melbourne Stars Wicket-Keepers 2021:

The Hard-Hitting Englishman, Joe Clarke is the first choice wicket-keeper in this lineup. Clarke has made a lot of name for himself in T20 Cricket. He adds great strength to the batting unit and his wicket-keeping is an added bonus. Peter Nevill is the backup wicket-keeping choice in this squad.

Melbourne Stars Fast Bowlers 2021:

The pace attack of Melbourne Star is led by the experienced Nathan Coulter Nile and Pakistan’s Haris Ruaf. Liam Hatcher is a promising name in the pace bowling department. He is not as experienced as Coulter Nile, but surely has the potential to be the best. 

Brody Couch and Sam Elliot are the potential talents in Melbourne Stars squad, both of them have never played at the big stage yet in T20 Cricket just like Ahmed Daniyal who is another pick from Pakistan.

Melbourne Stars Spinners 2021

Leg Spinner Qais Ahmed of Afghanistan will be main spinner of Melbourne Stars. Qais is a renowned name in T20 Circuit. With Qais are two inexperienced spinners, Tom O’Connel and Syed Faridoun. While Tom has played 5 T20 games before, Faridoun is pure raw talent from Pakistan. 

The Spin Attack of Melbourne Stars will heavily rely on Qais Ahmed but they surely will hope that the other two emerging stars could also do something special for the Stars with option of Maxwell rolling his hand is also available.
