The Big Bash League 2022 will kick start on Tuesday, December 13, at the Manuka Oval in Canberra where Sydney Thunder will lock horns against Melbourne Stars. Sydney Thunder made it to the knockout game in the previous season of the tournament but were unable to find themselves a spot in the finale. They lost the game to Brisbane Heat at the same venue and were knocked out.
Melbourne Stars, on the other hand, finished seventh in the points table last year. They had a poor outing last season and will be looking to perform better this time. In the absence of senior all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, the Stars will be led by Adam Zampa. The Syndey Thunder, on the other hand, will be led by Jason Sangha.
