They will be looking to leave that game in the past and register their first win of the season.

Stars have been hit by injury to their captain Glenn Maxwell. He sustained an injury in his forearm while batting durind the BBL opener. He received medical treatment twice on the field and after he got out for a 14-ball 23, Maxwell continued icing on his forearm.

Maxwell will miss the match bs Scorchers but is expected to be back for the third match of Stars which is after ten days on December 23 vs Sydney Thunder. In his absence, all-rounder Marcus Stoinis will be leading the side.
