Aurora Stadium – Launceston, Australia
Hurricanes started their BBL campaign with two wins in as many matches so far. Riding on the exploits of their pace attack led by James Faulkner, Hurricanes managed to choke both their opponents, Sixers and Strikers. With both D’Arcy Short and Colin Ingram in good form at the top of the order, Hurricanes look good for a deep race in the BBL.
On the other hand, Strikers lost their BBL opener against Hurricanes on Sunday, as their top order failed against Scott Boland and Riley Meredith. Despite Daniel Worrall’s fifty, Adelaide Strikers could not grab the match and will fight for revenge against the same team, Alex Carey is set to come back to the side. Rashid Khan and Peter Siddle are also likely to be back in action.
Although Hurricanes are in good rhythm and likely to emerge as winners again, they would be wary of Strikers, who have a well-balanced team. Nevertheless, a competitive match could be expected.
Pitch And Conditions & Toss Prediction:
The pitch in Launceston is a drop-in pitch and it is quite full of uncertainties. It could be a bit spin favourable and give the bowlers more of a chance. The outfield is quite small and so could see a lot of big hits too. The only unknown factor is odd bounce. Hopefully, it will not affect very much but if it does then the batsmen are going to have a very tough time. A score of around 170 should be competitive and enough to defend. The team that wins the toss is going to choose field first. Launceston does not see too much high-quality cricket and so the surface can be a bit hit or miss. Chasing the target should be seen as a big advantage.
Hobart Hurricanes Predicted XI:
D’Arcy Short, Peter Handscomb (C&WK), Will Jacks, Ben McDermott, Colin Ingram, Tim David, James Faulkner, Nathan Ellis, Johan Botha, Scott Boland and Riley Meredith.
Adelaide Strikers Predicted XI:
Alex Carey (C&WK), Phil Salt, Jake Weatherald, Matt Renshaw, Jono Wells, Ryan Gibson, Rashid Khan, Daniel Worrall, Danny Briggs, Wes Agar and Peter Siddle.
