Legspinner Shane Warne says Wednesday’s clash with Perth Scorchers is a must-win game for Melbourne Stars.
Stars have lost two of their first three games and are battling to stay in semi-final contention in the seven-round Big Bash League.
“If we have a loss tomorrow we’re relying on some results to go our way,” Warne said on Tuesday.
“So we have to win tomorrow. We need one of our top three or four, if not a couple of them, to really put their hands up and make big scores.”
The Stars currently sit in sixth place on the KFC Big Bash League (BBL) ladder, with one win and two losses.
Melbourne Stars will take on Perth Scorchers in the 16th T20 match of the Big Bash League at Melbourne on January 4, 2012.
