Adelaide Strikers are set to host Hobart Hurricanes in match 30 of Big Bash League. The match will be played at Adelaide Oval. Both the teams are settled with 6 points and need some big wins to have a chance to book their places for the knockout rounds. While Hurricanes won their previous fixture, Strikers are currently on 4-match losing streak. Their last encounter happened on Monday where the Matthew Wade-led side registered a 7-wicket win. Caleb Jewell and Ben McDermott scored half-centuries and helped the Hurricanes chase down 178 with 16 balls to spare.
In their last 4 encounters, Adelaide Strikers have managed to call right at the toss 4 times. They are likely to continue their toss winning streak in this game as well.
Although Adelaide Strikers are coming on the back of 4 consecutive defeats, they are likely to bounce back at their home ground. Notably, Hurricanes are yet to win back-to-back games this season, which might motivate the Strikers.
