Rogue selection here, and it has nothing to do with loving everything about Ben Hilfenhaus. A fantastic batting line up, albeit slightly long in the tooth apart from last year’s top scorer Ben Dunk. Some enormous egos with previous in terms of shaking people up the wrong way. Some canny operators in John Hastings and James Faulkner, plus the spunky token Aussie in Adam Zampa - Could be brilliant, could also be naff.
Melbourne Stars Squad: Ben Dunk, Jackson Coleman, Michael Beer, Scott Boland, James Faulkner, Seb Gotch, Evan Gulbis, Peter Handscomb, Sam Harper, John Hastings(c), Ben Hilfenhaus, Glenn Maxwell, Kevin Pietersen, Rob Quiney, Marcus Stoinis, Daniel Worrall, Luke Wright, Adam Zampa
