Teams Preview

Adelaide Strikers

Travis Head can’t ask for more from his side after they registered the 4th consecutive win in the last game against the Perth Scorchers. The 16 run win came on the back of clinical performance from the side. Head would want the team to carry the same momentum and win it in front of their home crowd.

Batting looks good for the side with the kind of form Jake Weatherald is in at the moment. He will look to provide a good start in the company of Phillip Salt. Jonathan Wells has scored heavily this season and shall be looking to continue the same way.

Travis Head and Alex Carey are good players in the middle order and Rashid Khan towards the end adds punch to their batting. Rashid Khan has been the pick of the bowlers this season and shall look to trouble the Hurricanes with his tight line and length. Wes Agar and Peter Siddle’s show with the ball in the last game would give them confidence. Billy Stanlake and Michael Neser will be aiming to keep the line tight and help the side win.

Hobart Hurricanes

Matthew Wade would be excited about the kind of performance his side put up in the last game. They won it by 57 runs against the Sydney Thunder. They need to win this one to keep their chances alive for the playoffs. Having already lost against the Strikers earlier in the season the side will be looking to avenge that in this game.

D’Arcy Short and Matthew Wade at the top make the batting order very strong for the side. Macalister Wright goes into this with two good performances. George Bailey and Ben McDermott have also batted well this season and the only worrying factor for the side has been the form of David Miller and he needs to do well for the side in the next game.

In the bowling department, James Faulkner and Scott Boland look in good form but the side will want Clive Rose to improve upon his economy rate. Short’s five-wicket haul in the last outing would be a confidence booster for the side. They will expect a good show from Qais Ahmed and Riley Mere in the next game.

Pitch And Weather Conditions

There would be clear skies at Adelaide on January 26 and the pitch is expected to be a good one to bat on as we have seen in the last few games that have been played at this venue. The bowlers will get early purchase from the surface but overall it is a batting track and the side batting first will need a score of around 170 runs to win here.

Venue Details

One of the finest T20 grounds in Australia the Adelaide Oval balances it out between the batsmen and the bowlers. While the bowlers are able to extract early rewards from the wicket the shorter boundaries around the square makes run scoring easy. Spinners have to bowl well to do well at this venue.

Toss Prediction

It is a win the toss bat first kind of a wicket. With the weather expected to be dry batmen will be able to play their strokes freely. The side that wins the toss should bat first on this surface and apply pressure on the opponents.

Winning Prediction

Adelaide Strikers have been the team to watch out in the last two weeks of the league as they have gone from one victory to another. They would target a win in this game and play the Melbourne Stars in the Qualifiers.

Hobart Hurricanes would also come into this game with confidence having won their last two games. Strikers are playing at home and the kind for form their batsmen are in at the moment will give them edge going into this game.
