STR vs HUR Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: BBL 2022/23 Match 30 | AS vs HH Dream11 Prediction Today | Adelaide Pitch Report

It’s Adelaide Strikers vs Hobart Hurricanes take two. On January 2, the Hurricanes produced their most efficient batting performance of the season to date as they made light work of the Strikers’ 177. However, the key question now is whether Hobart can find consistency in what has been a win-loss pattern so far in BBL 12.

On the other side, the Strikers, who started the season with three wins, have lost four straight matches. At the time of writing, they sit in fifth with the Hurricanes behind them on net run rate, so this game has quite a level of importance at the halfway mark of the competition. The Strikers have not played too badly, but they have lost key moments which have come back to haunt them.

So, which way will this match go? Will the Hurricanes enjoy another great start to their batting innings or can the Strikers attack make inroads? Or will Chris Lynn be the star as he continues his love affair with the Hurricanes? It promises to be a cracking match, and here’s hoping it is.

Peter Siddle was holding his lower back a few nights ago and will miss two games. Matt Short is set to captain the team.

Also, Jake Weatherald is back in the squad, in place of Henry Hunt. Henry Thornton, who missed the last game due to rest, could return.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Adelaide Strikers:

  • Will captaincy bring out the best in Matt Short? He has scored 253 runs in eight innings against Hurricanes at an average of 36.14 and strike rate of 152.41, including a very promising 26-ball 38 a few nights ago.
  • Chris Lynn is the top run-scorer in BBL 12 (260). This includes 87 vs Hurricanes, part of 542 runs against them at an average of 54.20 and strike rate of 151.40.
  • Adam Hose in BBL 12: 7 inns, 159 runs, avg. 31.80, SR 137.06. He was bowled by Paddy Dooley on January 2, so that matchup will be interesting here.
  • Rashid Khan doesn’t have the best of records against Hurricanes. His ten wickets cost 35.60 apiece with an economy of 8.28. His best matchup looks to be Ben McDermott, with total figures of 3/61 off 53 balls against him.
  • Henry Thornton is likely to return. He has taken a wicket in every BBL game in his career so far (14 games, 30 wickets), with 15 of them coming in six matches at Adelaide Oval.

Hobart Hurricanes:

  • Ben McDermott returned to form with a 33-ball 53 against Strikers a few nights ago. He has struck 351 runs overall at an average of 39.00 and strike rate of 148.73 against Adelaide.
  • Matthew Wade missed out in the last game (9), but still has fine numbers against Strikers. In ten innings, he has struck 350 runs at an average of 50.00 and strike rate of 167.46.
  • Wade was dismissed by Rashid Khan for the first time a few nights ago. Overall, he has scored 58 runs in 39 balls against the legspinner.
  • Since December 2020, Tim David has hammered 127 runs at an average of 42.33 and strike rate of 171.62 against Adelaide. This includes a 13-ball 27* on January 2.
  • D’Arcy Short averages 54.42 against Strikers (653 runs) and 55.40 at the Adelaide Oval (277 runs). However, he seems short of confidence and fluency, with a strike rate of just 115.47 this season, which is similar to BBL 11 (113.26).
  • Nathan Ellis has taken six wickets in his last two matches. His role at the death means he is a chance of taking wickets in the late overs. In fact, four of those last six scalps came between overs 17-20.
  • Paddy Dooley and Riley Meredith each have ten wickets in BBL 12. Both have gone wicketless just once so far.
