Venue: Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne.
Pitch Report: The pitch at the Melbourne Cricket Ground has been a decent one for batting. Out of the four Big Bash League 2022-23 matches played at this venue, two finished in favor of the chasing teams.
Both teams have decent batting units that can chase totals, so they should ideally opt to field first.
Match Preview: Both the Melbourne Stars and Brisbane Heat have been disappointing in the ongoing season of the Big Bash League. Keeping in mind the conditions and the strengths of both teams, the team batting second should win the match.
