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 2022-23.
