HUR vs STR Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: BBL 2022/23 Match 26 | HH vs AS Dream11 Prediction Today | Hobart Pitch Report

As the season nears its halfway point, this game already has a lot riding on it. Like last season, Hobart Hurricanes seem unable to string wins together. On the other side, Adelaide Strikers, despite playing some good cricket, have lost three in a row.

So, it’s all set up for a mouthwatering clash in Hobart, where hopefully the weather is kind.

The Hurricanes were on the wrong end of a Thunder storm on New Year’s Eve. They went the distance in Sydney’s total of 228, with the bowlers seeking a bounceback against a good Strikers’ lineup. Also, whether the Hurricanes’ batting can find consistency will be interesting to see against the Adelaide attack.

Match Details

  • Location: Bellerive Oval, Hobart.
  • Time: 7:15pm (local), 1:45pm (IST).
