Adelaide Oval – Adelaide, Australia
The recent trend of back to back matches continues in the Big Bash League as the Adelaide Strikers and the Melbourne Renegades get ready to face off once more. The previous match ended with a heavy defeat being handed to the Melbourne Renegades. That was the seventh consecutive match that the Renegades have lost and things are looking for them. We are past the halfway mark in the tournament and both the teams will be feeling the crunch. The Adelaide Strikers are right in the middle of the league table and cannot afford a slip up here.
Adelaide Strikers have had a topsy-turvy season so far; they have shown patches of good form before suddenly slipping badly. Currently, they are at the 4th spot on the points table with 4 wins and 4 losses. They are looking for some consistency and a good win might help them get going. Adelaide will get that opportunity when they square-off against the bottom-placed Melbourne Renegades again whom they just beat in their previous match. With 7 losses and 1 win, the Renegades have been relegated to the last place and it seems as if the season has already slipped away from them. It will now take something special from them to get out of this mess.
Pitch Report and Conditions & Toss Prediction:
The Adelaide Oval is a historic venue and has hosted 3 games so far in the Big Bash League 2020-21. In the previous game here, the Adelaide Strikers posted 171-5 after batting first – the highest total of the season on this venue. Hence, the team batting first in this game will be looking to get a total in the range of 160-170.
The pitch at the Adelaide Oval is known to be quite an even surface. It’s good for batsmen when it’s hard at the start but also offers decent purchase to the seam bowlers and spinners. The pitch does tend to get a little slower in the second half of the game and bowlers might enjoy that phase more. The weather on the day of the game is expected to be clear and warm. A full game should happen.
The team winning the toss is likely to bat first as the strategy of posting a healthy total and then crushing the opposition has worked well on this venue.
