Match Preview

Melbourne Stars and Adelaide Strikers will lock horns in the second clash of the season. With the first faceoff being won by the Strikers, courtesy the trio of Alex Carey (45), Jonathan Wells (68) and Peter Siddle (3/24). With Alex Carey all set to join the squad following the conclusion of the 3-match ODIs against India, the Men in Blue now appear as a solid unit that could squash the Melbourne Stars in the coming duel, and grab a seat in the eliminators.

Meanwhile, Adam Zampa and Peter Handscomb have also returned from the international tour and would look to make up for their absence in the game at Adelaide. Stars, who are seated at the top of the points table, suffered a 21-run defeat in the recent outing against Sixers and will be hoping to bounce back in the coming T20.

Teams Preview

Adelaide Strikers

Jonathan Wells (351 runs in 10 innings) and Jake Weatherland (337 runs in 11 innings) have been the core contributors to the Strikers in the ongoing edition of BBL.

Alex Carey (266 runs in 7 innings) has returned to the squad and along with skipper Travis Head (109 runs in 3 innings) can turn the tides in the Strikers’ favor. Head scored a match-winning 40-ball 79 in the recent outing against Hobart Hurricanes and with his current form, he is likely to don a similar role.

Bowling wise, all eyes would be on Afghani spinner Rashid Khan (16 wickets in 11 innings) has been the top-performer this time as well. Pacer Wes Agar (11 wickets in 8 innings) has been effective with his cutters and yorkers and along with Peter Siddle could be a force to reckon with in the powerplays and death overs.

Adelaide Strikers Actual Playing XI:

Michael Neser, Philip Salt, Matthew Short, WA Agar, Alex Carey, Jake Weatherald, Peter Siddle, Rashid Khan, TM Head, Billy Stanlake, JW Wells

Melbourne Stars

Marcus Stoinis scored a blistering 37-ball 62 comprising 3-fours and 4-sixes in the freshly concluded match against Sydney Sixers. He is currently topping the batting charts in BBL 2019-20 with 585 runs in 12 innings including a century and five half-centuries.

Skipper Glenn Maxwell (353 runs in 11 innings) has been destructive in the middle and slog overs. In the middle-order, Hilton Cartwright (230 runs in 8 innings) and Nick Larkin (131 runs in 6 innings) have played anchor roles with utmost finesse and would look to emulate similar performances.

In the bowling department, Sandeep Lamichhane (14 wickets in 11 innings) has grabbed the most number of scalpings in BBL 2019-20 and with fellow leggie Adam Zampa (10 wickets in 7 innings) joining him, one could expect the duo to come up with economical figures at Adelaide Oval. Pacer Daniel Worrall came up with a decent performance in the previous outing and will be backed to come up with similar figures.

Melbourne Stars Actual Playing XI:

Clint Hinchliffe, Lance Morris, Peter Handscomb, Sebastian Gotch, Nic Maddinson, N Larkin, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Adam Zampa, D Worrall, Sandeep Lamichhane

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Clouds are going to hover the stadium throughout however, no chances of rain are being predicted. The temperature would be in the low 20s. Batters would get plenty of opportunities to score runs, while bowlers could be a menace with the variations.

Toss Prediction

The toss winning team should look to bowl first considering the pitch flattens out as the game progresses. The majority of the matches played here in the T20s have been won by the team batting second. Moreover, both Melbourne Stars and Strikers have put up match-winning performances in the matches batting second this season.

Winning Prediction

Although it will be a neck to neck battle, the result is likely to wind up in Adelaide Strikers’ favor. The Strikers have been the dominant side amidst the conditions of Adelaide Oval and riding on the stupendous form of Jake Weatherald, Jonathan Wells, Wes Agar, and skipper Travis Head would look to seal the second spot in the points table.
