Adelaide Strikers and Hobart Hurricanes will face off against each other in the 30th match of the Big Bash League to gain vital points, with both teams struggling in the bottom half of the points table. 

STR vs HUR: Match Preview:


Strikers and Hurricanes are currently placed in the fifth and sixth spots in the points table. Interestingly, the reverse fixture between these two was played just 3 days ago on Monday (January 2nd). Hobart Hurricanes won the match by 7 wickets. However, the pace and bounce will be less threatening in Adelaide as compared to Hobart, while the batting would be tougher in middle and death overs. With a short boundary in play, back-of-length pacers (Riley Meredith, Wes Agar) are expected to have a tough outing.

Chris Lynn was in impeccable form for the Strikers as he smacked 87 runs off 58 balls with 9 fours & 3 sixes. Opener & all-rounder Matthew Short contributed with 38 runs off 26 balls (4x3,6x1), while Colin de Grandhomme contributed with 30 runs off 18 balls (4x5) lower down the order. None of the other batters were able to reach the double-digit mark. 

The bowling was equally disappointing if not more than the batting. Wes Agar, Rashid Khan and Peter Siddle managed 1 wicket each while the other bowlers remained wicketless. Wes Agar went for as many as 44 runs in his 3 overs, while Rashid Khan surprisingly conceded 43 runs in his 4 overs. Captain Peter Siddle was the only bowler on his side who managed to maintain an economy of less than 6. 

Chasing 178 to win against Strikers, Hobart were off to a brilliant start as openers Caleb Jewell and Ben McDermott added 86 runs for the first wicket in just 8 overs. While Jewell scored 54 runs off 28 balls (4x4,6x4), Ben McDermott smacked 53 runs in 33 balls (4x5,6x2). D Arcy Short and Tim David scored unbeaten 27 runs respectively as Hurricanes chased down the target in 17.2 overs, winning the match by 7 wickets. 

The Hurricanes' bowling has been decent this season. Pacer Nathan Ellis stepped up with 2 wickets against Strikers, while other bowlers contributed. The only weak link was Faheem Ashraf, who was playing his first match of the season and looked unsettled. Spinner Patrick Dooley has been a highlight, while Riley Meredith is also assisting the bowling.
