HUR vs STA Dream11 Prediction Fantasy Cricket Tips Possible 11 Pitch Report BBL 2023/24 Match 17 | HUR vs STA Dream11 Prediction Today | Hobart Pitch Report

Hobart Hurricanes will take on Melbourne Stars in a crucial match where the winner will move into the top five on the BBL 13 table. Both teams picked up much needed victories in their previous outing. The Hurricanes blew the Renegades away, while the Stars upset the fancied Sydney Sixers at the SCG two nights ago.

The key now for both teams is consistency. Matthew Wade found form and Macallister Wright has given the Hurricanes hope that they can nail that number three spot. If they can set a strong platform, there is enough power in the middle order to take advantage.

Similar applies to the Stars. They are still short of runs in their top order, so a good start here sets things up for the trio of Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis and Hilton Cartwright. Plus, Usama Mir will be looking to build on his excellent performance in Sydney earlier this week.

Match Details

  • Date: Thursday December 28, 2023.
  • Time: 7:15pm (local), 1:45pm (IST).

Bellerive Oval Hobart Pitch Report and Weather

There is a chance of a shower or two, but there should be a full match. This ground is typically excellent for batting, as on show in the match on December 23 where Hobart Hurricanes chased the Renegades’ 183 with an over to spare. Also, seamers tend to have more success here, but Paddy Dooley (2/32 last game) has an impressive 11 wickets in five matches on this ground.
