Hobart Hurricanes vs Adelaide Strikers Today Match Prediction. In Match 22 of the Big Bash T20, the Hobart Hurricanes and Adelaide Strikers will go head to head. The former won their most recent match by 24 runs against the Melbourne Stars. They are presently in third place in the points standings, having won two of their five games. Overall, the Hobart Hurricanes have always had a quality team on paper, but they have never been able to execute well.

The Adelaide Strikers were defeated by Brisbane Heat by 39 runs in their most recent match. So far, the team has only managed to win one of the five games they have played in the huge tournament. They’ll try to get on a winning streak going into this game. The Strikers’ immediate concern will be to improve their batting, which hasn’t been fired recently. Travis Head and Alex Carey’s absence has been a key cause of their underperformance thus far.

Team News

  • On paper, the Hobart Hurricanes have a better balanced team between the two, with both batting and bowling covered. The Hurricanes’ Ben McDermott, D’Arcy Short, and Matthew Wade have been in fantastic form and will be difficult to deal with.
  • The Strikers have struggled in each of their past three games and will be short on confidence heading into this contest.

Hobart Hurricanes vs Adelaide Strikers Match Tips

The Hobart Hurricanes have shown glimpses of becoming a title contender in the second half of the BBL season, but consistency has been absent, and this has to be rectified if they are to make significant progress. It’s worth noting, though, that two of Hobart’s three losses have come against the unbeaten Perth Scorchers, with the other coming against the Sydney Sixers, both of which have established themselves as the competition’s finest two teams thus far. In comparison, the Adelaide Strikers are a significantly lesser outfit, and the Hurricanes, with home advantage, should be able to stamp their dominance on this game early on, whether bat or ball, finally winning against a squad of form and short on confidence.
