Last season Tanveer Sangha was a break through bowler. He did a very good job, took a handful of wickets with his spin and was really tough to get away. With his spin, Sangha will continue to be a huge threat.
Matt Short came out of nowhere for the Adelaide Strikers to dominate and carry Adelaide to an easy win. He is looking very good and is off to a really good start this season, which should boost his confidence very well.
The Adelaide Strikers are favorites despite both teams getting off to good starts, given the form and star power in the Adelaide side.
