Cricket Match Preview:

Adelaide Strikers would like to add some consistency to their campaign as they have had a stop-start kind of tournament so far. Melbourne Stars, on the other hand, have had a bizarre kind of cricket tournament so far. They had a reasonable record when the likes of Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis were part of their lineup while, in their absence, it was a struggle. Now that they made a comeback again, Stars have won the cricket game.  

Adelaide Strikers, on the other hand, have won 4 cricket games out of 8 games of cricket. They are scheduled to play Hobart Hurricanes in their next game and they would like to have one more win in their kitty before taking on Melbourne Stars.

In the last 5 games of cricket played between the two sides, Adelaide Strikers have managed to win 4 games of cricket. Even in the first round of cricket game between the two sides, they emerged as the winner. That should give some belief to the Strikers side. In that game of cricket, both sides were missing some of the key players. Now that all the players are back, that should make this an interesting contest.

Marcus Stoinis has been the key man for Stars so far in the cricket league. Even before going for the national duty, he was winning games of cricket for Stars through his all-around performances. His presence eases the pressure on Dwayne Bravo as well. If Glenn Maxwell can get back into the form, it will be an ideal situation for Stars.

For Adelaide Strikers, Alex Carrey will hold the key at top of the order and his return can give a necessary boost to Strikers. Peter Siddle and Billy Stanlake will add to their pace battery and their experience is going to be invaluable for Strikers.

Cricket Match Information:

Melbourne Stars will take on Adelaide Strikers in their 10th and 11th game of cricket respectively in the tournament. As of now, Melbourne Stars are on the 5th position, whereas Adelaide Strikers are on the 4th position on the points table. The win in this game of cricket can take Melbourne Stars within the top four, whereas it can also change the position of Adelaide Strikers if they can win big.

Melbourne Stars

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Melbourne Stars made an inspirational comeback after a slow start in the first few cricket games. They now have the services of Maxwell, Stoinis and Zampa for all the cricket games. Our prediction is of quite a few changes in their lineup.

Here is our prediction of Melbourne Stars’ playing XI:

  • Dwayne Bravo
  • Ben Dunk
  • EP Gulbis
  • Glenn Maxwell
  • Peter Handscomb
  • TL O’Connell
  • Liam Plunkett
  • Adam Zampa
  • Marcus Stoinis
  • Nick Maddinson
  • Jackson Bird

Adelaide Strikers

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Adelaide Strikers began to fall away a little after a fair start. However, they restricted their slide by winning the game of cricket against Sydney Thunder and Melbourne Renegades. Our prediction is they will include Alex Carrey and Peter Siddle in the playing eleven.

Here is our prediction of Adelaide Strikers’ playing XI:

  • Alex Carey
  • J Weatherhald
  • Colin Ingram
  • JW Wells
  • Travis Head
  • Peter Siddle
  • HJ Neilson
  • MW Short
  • Ben Laughlin
  • Rashid Khan
  • Billy Stanlanke

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Marcus Stonis has been outstanding for Melbourne Stars with both bat and ball. If he can continue his form, it will keep Stars in good stead. Our prediction is of a good performance from him in this game of cricket.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

It will be first game of cricket on this cricket ground. The nature of the pitch is not known yet. However, it should be full of runs and will be good for batting right throughout the cricket game. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Melbourne Stars will begin the game of cricket as the favourites. Though they are coming into this cricket game after a loss against Adelaide Strikers in their last contest, the presence of all their key players makes it a different equation for them. Hence, our prediction is of Melbourne Stars’ win.

Marcus Stoinis (MS) – 50+ runs
