With an early loss Stars are already left with work to do. They fought well despite a low score as new recruits did a good job with the ball, but will know that the batting needs to put some more effort. The Hobart Hurricanes have built a nice group and has a good balance with their line-up.

STA vs HUR Key Players
At 33, Trent Boult begins his journey as a freelancer. His first game went well from a personal point of view as he took the new ball and also picked up two wickets. With the Stars losing though, he will have a greater role as Stars look to get on the board.
Matthew Wade is in a similar position as Aaron Finch. His T20I future is uncertain but the ongoing season will allow him to understand if he has it in him to continue for a few more years or if his time is up.
