Melbourne Stars Unveil Full Roster for Big Bash League 2023 featuring Stars Maxwell and Stoinis

The 13th edition of the Big Bash League (BBL) is set to begin on December 7, 2023, and run until January 24, 2024. The Melbourne Stars are hoping for a better performance this season after finishing at the bottom of the points table in the previous edition with just three wins in 14 matches. Captain Glenn Maxwell, who missed the previous season due to a fractured leg, will lead the team this time. The team has bid farewell to Adam Zampa and acquired the talented wicketkeeper-batter Sam Harper in return. The squad also includes quality all-rounders and a formidable bowling attack led by Haris Rauf. Melbourne Stars will begin their campaign against Brisbane Heat on Thursday at the Gabba.

Scott Boland, Joe Burns, Hilton Cartwright, Brody Couch, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Sam Harper, Campbell Kellaway, Nick Larkin, Glenn Maxwell (C), Joel Paris, Tom Rogers, Mark Steketee, Marcus Stoinis, and Beau Webster (replaced by Jono Merlo for the first game).

Overseas players: Haris Rauf (Pakistan), Usama Mir (Pakistan), Liam Dawson (England), and Imad Wasim (Pakistan).
