Adelaide Strikers

Predicted XI: Matt Brief, Henry Hunt, Chris Lynn, Adam Hose, Colin De Grandhomme, Thomas Kelly, Harry Nielsen, Rashid Khan, Henry Thornton, Wes Agar, Peter Siddle

Since beginning the season 3-0, the Strikers have misplaced 4 consecutive video games to take a seat proper on the sting of the BBL12 prime 5.

It comes as a shock, as Adelaide have a number of the finest particular person performers within the event – Chris Lynn at the moment holds the ‘Golden Cap’ with 260 runs, whereas Henry Thornton tops the wicket-taker charts regardless of lacking the final recreation.

Maybe a scarcity of batting depth has price the Strikers – Lynn and Matt Brief have executed a lot of the heavy lifting, however they require higher help from the likes of Henry Hunt, Adam Hose, and Tom Kelly.

There’s nonetheless loads of room for optimism although, because the Strikers boast a top quality bowling assault led by Thornton, Khan and the evergreen Peter Siddle.

As such, Adelaide will likely be assured that they’ll arrest their slide with a house victory in opposition to the up and down Hurricanes.

The Hurricanes continued their sample of alternating between wins and losses with a giant victory in opposition to the Strikers. 

Chasing 177, openers Caleb Jewell (54 off 28) and Ben McDermott (53 off 33) took the sport into their very own arms and arrange the comfy win, whereas Tim David (27 off 13) reminded us of his energy with a fast cameo on the finish.

It was the form of efficiency we anticipate from the preseason title favourites, who will now be trying to construct momentum in direction of finals time.

English batsman Zak Crawley joins the squad for this match after changing Shadab Khan, nevertheless, I can’t see a spot for him in a aspect which is stuffed with top-class hitters and bereft of fifth bowler choices. 

It’s a great drawback to have for Hobart, as they head to Adelaide chasing a second win on the trot.

Match Prediction

The Hurricanes lastly flexed their muscle with the bat on Monday, placing a strong Adelaide bowling unit to the sword.

Adelaide Oval could also be hostile territory for Hobart, however the guests ought to relish the flat wicket and brief boundaries on supply.

Whereas the Strikers will even be wanting ahead to taking part in on house soil, I query the depth of their batting line-up compared to the Hurricanes.

As such, it’ll possible take a particular effort from Brief or Lynn to topple the Hurricanes, whom I anticipate to make an enormous cost within the remaining weeks of the season.

So, can Adelaide handle an upset? I don’t suppose so.

Meredith has been a constant wicket-taker within the BBL over an extended time period. He has taken not less than one wicket in eight of his final ten matches, and has taken two or extra in six of these video games.

This guess has been a fantastic multi-booster all season. Caught is the most typical dismissal methodology within the BBL by some margin, and top-order batsmen are likely to dismiss themselves on this type of the sport slightly than fall to unplayable deliveries.

Wade has been in nice type this season, hitting 15+ runs in 4 of his final 5 innings. Adelaide is normally a fantastic venue for batsmen, so I’m backing the pocket rocket to make just a few on Thursday night time.
