Cricket Match Preview:

Runners-up of last year, Hobart Hurricanes, and defending champions, Adelaide Strikers, will take on each other for the second time in this cricket tournament. Both teams could not be at a more different stage right now. While Hobart Hurricanes have remained at the top of the points table for a long time now, Strikers have slipped to the 6th position and need to win all of their remaining four cricket games.

Hobart Hurricanes cannot put a wrong foot at the moment. They have won every game of cricket, barring two, and are comfortably placed at number 1 position on the points table. The only danger they face 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 the cricket tournament as big as Big Bash League.

Adelaide Strikers, from being in the top four teams in the initial part of the tournament, have now slipped to the 6th position. The main reason behind that has been their bowling, which apart from Rashid Khan, has looked quite toothless. As a result, the pressure has been on the batting group to score more than the needful in every cricket game.

Hobart Hurricanes have displayed the attribute of all the best sides in the world. They are winning games of cricket from all difficult situations. While they suffered the loss against Sydney Sixers in their last cricket game, their batting is still very strong with skippers Matthew Wade and D’arcy Short being in prime form. Even their experienced players like George Bailey and James Faulkner have now begun to contribute consistently.   

Cricket Match Information:

Within a span of ten days, Adelaide Strikers will walk out on the cricket field against Hobart Hurricanes for the second round of their duel. It will be the 12th cricket game in the tournament for both teams. While Hobart Hurricanes are right at the top of the points table with 8 victories in 10 games of cricket, Adelaide Strikers have slipped to number 6 position with 4 wins out of 10 cricket games.

Hobart Hurricanes

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Hobart Hurricanes, led by Matthew Wade, have been in good form in this league. They had 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.

Here is our prediction of Hobart Hurricanes’ playing XI:

  • D’Arcy Short
  • Ben McDormett
  • Matthew Wade
  • Jofra Archer
  • James Faulkner
  • CP Jewell
  • George Bailey
  • S Milenko
  • Riley Meredith
  • Johan Botha
  • DJM Moody

Adelaide Strikers

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Adelaide Strikers have completely lost their form after a fair start. Our prediction is of changes to their lineup considering the consecutive losses in their last few cricket games.

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
  • Rashid Khan
  • Billy Stanlanke

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Rashid Khan’s performance is going to be the key for Adelaide Strikers from here on if they want to qualify for the next round. He will have to be back in good form to pick wickets for Strikers during the middle overs. Our prediction is of a good performance from him in this game of cricket.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

So far, no international cricket game has been played on this cricket ground. The nature of the pitch is not quite known but keeping the nature of the format in mind, 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. Meanwhile, Strikers currently struggling hence, our prediction is of Hobart Hurricanes’ victory.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

George Bailey (HH) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Rashid Khan (AS) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

George Bailey (HH)
