HUR vs STR 26th Match Probable winners:
The Hurricanes and the Strikers both have exceptional players but have struggled to perform consistently in recent games. We think the batting line-up of the Hurricanes will be key to the result of this match. This should be a really interesting team between two sides who have underperformed over the last week. In humid and cloudy conditions, we could well see a rain-reduced fixture and we expect both sides to look to take the attack to the opposition bowlers. Overall, we think Hobart Hurricanes have the stronger batting line-up and we are backing them to win. Considering the team combination, Hobart Hurricanes is expected to win this match.
