    Be good to have this as a separate thread

    The teams as follows, screen shot from Fox Sports

    18 squad members?

    9 v 9?

    They probably add more players during the week

    What a joke. You've got people travelling all the way from overseas just for a T10 match. Why not a T20?

    Judging by the forecast, the game is likely to be washed out.

    Whole BBL / limited overs ( internationals) this summer been messed up with schedules and overall treating fans with contempt , this doesn't surprise me one bit

    As _snafu_ mentioned, probably be all washed out.

    Only saving grace if a washout is if Stars make the final, Sixers will be declared the winner. How sweet tho art..

    It'd be hilarious to see the Stars miss out that way.

    If Stars do win tonight, and the final is rained out, is the winner decided on ...

    A. Highest position on BBL ladder leading in to finals?

    B. Team that got to the Final first?

    Ahh good.

    I thought it was that way but you never know with the Stars. They might get the bloody rules changed by Sunday. LOL. I hope they lose tonight.

    Basically the seedlings change after the qualifying final. Winner of that match (Sixers) become the number 1 seed and thus can win the final on a washout.

    Everyone hopes the Stars lose tonight

    Surely it should be kept in Sydney. Lots of people (myself included) have been looking forward to seeing this.

    Oh dear, this is messy.

    A great concept that unfortunately has been ruined by rain, if any.

    Yes the forecast say they'll be rain but how many times have we predicted rain but it doesnt turn out that what.

    And I'm guessing the organisers predicted the Stars to be hosts for the BBL final, given how far ahead they were and they obviously didnt predict the massive choke.

    This game was one of the reasons why the game is a sell out.

    If it doesn’t rain, I dare say Cricket NSW will be pretty f**king furious with CA.
