Genuine question - if you were coaching the Sixers - would you want to be batting second and simply making a focus of achieving the bash boost point over winning

let’s say the stars make 75 off 10 and 150 off 20

you’d think getting the 75 with your ten wickets is eminently more achievable

and serves the higher purpose for the tournament

So Perth hoping for a Stars win and Adelaide has their fingers, toes and ballsacks crossed for a Sixers win

Stars to win with bonus point to make finals, whos batting first?

If it was me I would send in all the hitters first and get 120 off 10 overs than finish around 190 and defend

hate how they constantly say how the stars team is full of superstars and they can't believe they haven't won every game.

Stoinis, Maxwell and Zampa are their only quality players. The rest are pretty garbage

Surely the game plan for the stars is to go the swing straight away? They need to bonus point (and also the win) to make finals, they need a huge ten over total.

Stars have been woefully inconsistent this year. Really don't deserve to play finals.
