Hobart Hurricanes (HUR) will take on Adelaide Strikers (STR) in the 22nd game of the Big Bash League, 2021/22 at the Bellerive Oval, Hobart. Hurricanes are going good in the tournament so far by sitting at 3rd spot with 10 points, while Strikers are struggling to find their 2nd win after 5 matches. Mathew Wade-led side defeated Melbourne Stars comprehensively by 24 runs in the last match, while Strikers yet again failed to impress against Brisbane Heat.
It’s definitely going to be an interesting match to watch. Strikers have a better track record against Hobarts but their current form in the season is a major concern. In their last match against Brisbane Heat, Adelaide Strikers were defeated by 39 runs. Rashid Khan was the standout player for the team and will be the top pick in the next match too. Amongst the batters, Jonathan Wells can also make it to the fantasy team as his half century knock helped him earn some fantasy points. And Peter Siddle’s consistency with the ball makes him a favourite pick too.
On the other hand, Hobarts are having a decent run this season and are well settled at third position in the point table with two wins out of five matches they played. Ben McDermott’s 67 off 43 balls and Tim David’s cameo 22 off 12 runs helped the team to secure a decent total of 180 runs, due to which both the players are good to bank on.
