Cricket Match Preview:

The last time these two sides met at the beginning of the Big Bash League was upon us and what a roller coaster ride it has been this time around. In the first cricket game of the tournament, last year’s champions, Adelaide Strikers, took on the champions of the second year, Brisbane Heat, and beat them easily by 5 wickets.

A lot of water has flown under the bridge since that first cricket game. Both sides are struggling and while Brisbane Heat are now out of contention in the next round, Adelaide Strikers are almost out. Brisbane Heat have just won 3 games of cricket out of 11 cricket games played and Adelaide Strikers have won just 5 cricket games out of the 12 games played.

Brisbane Heat had named Chris Lynn as their captain for this season. They had a disappointing time last season as they finished at number 7 position and, once again, it seems to be going the same route this year. They have had a poor cricket tournament from all fronts, with their batting and bowling both struggling throughout the tournament.

Adelaide Strikers were led by Colin Ingram for most of the games of cricket in this tournament. While they had a good start in the tournament, they fell away in their last five cricket games or so. They won their last cricket game against table toppers Hobart Hurricanes and that would have pleased them a great deal.

This cricket game was basically the reversal of their last cricket game when Hobart Hurricanes beat Strikers by 10 wickets. In this cricket game, Adelaide Strikers looked good for a ten-wicket win as well when, while chasing 170 runs, they were 116 without loss in just 10 overs. There was a loss of a couple of more wickets, but they reached their target quite comfortably. Their bowlers, Rashid Khan and Ben Laughlin, were very good as they restricted Hurricanes to 169 runs despite the big knock of Matthew Wade.

Cricket Match Information:

Adelaide Strikers and Brisbane Heat will take on each other in their 13th and 12th cricket game of the tournament. Both sides had clashed with each other in the very first cricket game of the tournament. That contest was won by Adelaide Strikers.

Adelaide Strikers

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Adelaide Strikers has been led by Colin Ingram for most of the cricket games in this tournament. Having won their last game of cricket handsomely against table toppers Hobart Hurricanes our prediction is of the same playing eleven as their last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Adelaide Strikers’ playing XI:

  • Alex Carey
  • J Weatherhald
  • Colin Ingram
  • JW Wells
  • JS Lehmann
  • MG Neser
  • C Valente
  • HJ Neilsen
  • Ben Laughlin
  • Rashid Khan
  • WA Agar

Brisbane Heat

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Brisbane Heat, under Chris Lynn’s captaincy, have been a big disappointment. They have not played a good brand of cricket and their popularity would have taken a big hit. Our prediction is of some changes to their playing eleven compared to their last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Brisbane Heat’s playing XI:

  • Chris Lynn
  • Brendon McCullum
  • Max Bryant
  • JA Burns
  • Matthew Renshaw
  • Ben Cutting
  • Al Ross
  • JJ Peirson
  • JK Lalor
  • MJ Sweepson
  • MT Steketee

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Adelaide Strikers’ Alex Carey was impressive in their last game of cricket. His performance at the top of the order is going to be important for the remaining games of cricket. Our prediction is of a good performance from him in the next cricket game.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

Adelaide Oval has produced high-scoring cricket games. In the last cricket game, Hobart Hurricanes absolutely smashed the host by 10 wickets. Our prediction is of a similar cricket pitch with scores of around 170. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Adelaide Strikers will begin the cricket game as favourites. They are in far better form than Brisbane Heat, who are struggling big time without any win in their belt. Adelaide Strikers need to win the next two cricket games to keep their hopes of qualifying to the next round alive. Our prediction is of a Strikers’ win.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Alex Carrey (AS) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Rashid Khan (AS) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Colin Ingram (AS)
