Hobart Hurricanes and Melbourne Stars will go head-to-head for the second time in BBL09.

The Stars won easily last time out, on the back of a magnificent five wicket haul by Haris Rauf. Since then, Rauf has departed the Stars as Dale Steyn arrived, while the Hurricanes’ young bowling attack has impressed.

Who will keep their cool in hot Launceston today?

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

  • Dale Steyn had an eventful start to life in the BBL, conceding 20 off his first five balls. His next 13 balls, though, yielded nine runs and a wicket.
  • Marcus Stoinis scored 81* (54) vs Hurricanes eight days ago.
  • Glenn Maxwell has looked dangerous in BBL09 (128 runs at SR 191.04). Also, he has 249 runs vs Hurricanes at an average of 49.
  • D’Arcy Short failed against Stars earlier this season (9), but scored 50+ in each of his other two games.
  • Nic Maddinson scored 40 last game vs Hurricanes and Ben McDermott is coming off a steady unbeaten 50 vs the Renegades last time out.
  • George Bailey missed the Hurricanes’ big loss to Stars a week ago. His record against them: 9 games, 287 runs, average: 57.40.
  • James Faulkner, Nathan Ellis and Riley Meredith took three wickets each in Hurricanes’ win over Renegades.
  • Riley Meredith: BBL09’s standout bowler so far? He has taken seven wickets in three games, including 3/27 last game vs Stars.
  • Also, Meredith was man-of-the-match in his only BBL game in Launceston last season.
  • Adam Zampa has six wickets in three games in BBL09.
  • Qais Ahmad went wicketless in his last game, but took three wickets vs Stars in Tasmania last season.
  • Nathan Coulter-Nile’s superb hitting last game further highlighted his all-round abilities in white-ball cricket. Also, David Miller spent some good time at the crease last game (25* off 15 balls). So too Peter Handscomb (34 off 28).

Launceston Pitch Report and Conditions

A hot 34 degrees is forecast for Launceston. However, there is a strong chance of a storm/showers in the evening. So, D/L could come into the equation.

In regards to the pitch, it is typically a good one at the University of Tasmania Stadium. Adelaide Strikers chased down 170 vs Hurricanes in the last match on this ground.

Match Prediction

Another match that can go either way.

Last season, the chasing team won both games at Launceston. Also, with the threat of rain in this one, the team that wins the toss could choose to chase. The chasing team could very well come away with a win.
