Cricket Match Preview:

Defending champions Adelaide Strikers are back from a small break and they needed that break for they had lost two out of their last three games of cricket and were in danger of losing all the momentum. They still have 4 wins out of 8 cricket games. While it is a comfortable space to be in, their time will start running out if they lose a couple of more games of cricket.

Hobart Hurricanes cannot put a foot wrong at the moment. They have won every game of cricket barring one and are comfortably placed at number one position on the points table. The only danger they are facing right now is more mental than the skill aspect of the cricket game. They would like to stay away from complacency at this juncture of the tournament. When teams start winning like they are, there is always a danger of peaking too early especially in a cricket tournament as big as Big Bash League.

Adelaide Strikers will be playing this game of cricket at Adelaide oval, their home ground, where they have had a mixed record so far in the tournament. They won one and lost one of their last two cricket games played here. They have also made a tactical change by changing their skipper from Colin Ingram to Travis Head. Whether that gives fruitful result remains to be seen.

Hobart Hurricanes have displayed the attributes of all the best sides in the world. They are winning games of cricket from all difficult situations. In the last game of cricket, they were struggling at one stage against Perth Scorchers but due to the great innings by George Bailey and last over heroics from James Faulkner, they defeated Perth in a cricket game where they were out for the most part of the game.  

Cricket Match Information:

Adelaide Strikers will walk out on the cricket field after a gap of 7 days when they will take on Hobart Hurricanes. It will be the ninth cricket game in the tournament for both teams. While Hobart Hurricanes are right at the top of the points table with 7 victories in 8 games of cricket, Adelaide Strikers are at the fourth position with 4 wins out of 8 cricket games.

Adelaide Strikers

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Adelaide Strikers began to fall away a little after a fair start. They have now handed over the leadership to Travis Head from Colin Ingram. Our prediction is there will be changes in their lineup as all international cricket stars will start to return back to the squads.

Here is our prediction of Adelaide Strikers’ playing XI:

  • Alex Carey
  • J Weatherhald
  • Colin Ingram
  • JW Wells
  • Peter Siddle
  • MG Neser
  • C Valente
  • MW Short
  • Ben Laughlin

Hobart Hurricanes:

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Hobart Hurricanes, led by Matthew Wade, have been in good form in this league. They have been the best side in the tournament so far. Our prediction is they will continue with the same playing eleven as they played in their last game of cricket.

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Alex Carrey will be back into the Adelaide Strikers squad. He will have to be back in good form to guide Strikers at the top of the order. Our prediction is of a good score from him in this game of cricket.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

In the last cricket game played here between Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Stars, Adelaide scored 178 runs while batting first. Even in the recent ODI played here between India and Australia more than 600 runs in the cricket game. Hence, the pitch should be full of runs. Our prediction is of a high scoring cricket game. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Hobart Hurricanes will begin this game of cricket as favourites. They are on a winning momentum right now and it will take a really good performance from Adelaide Strikers to beat Hurricanes. Our prediction is of a Hobart Hurricanes’ victory.
