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

It’s New Years’ Eve and that means a big cricket and fireworks party in Adelaide. Adelaide Strikers will be aiming for a third straight win at home this season when they take on the struggling Melbourne Stars in front of what is expected to be a strong crowd.

The Strikers themselves have lost two straight games, but the fighting spirit would please captain Peter Siddle and the team management. In their last game, they pushed the high-flying Scorchers all the way despite only posting 133/7, in what was another display of the Strikers’ terrific bowling attack.

Today, that attack comes up against a Stars team that is yet to find their best combinations. They are clearly unsure of their batting lineup, with the likes of Marcus Stoinis and Hilton Cartwright not used to their full potential.

With just one win in five outings so far, it’s nearing go time for the struggling Stars. Defeat here will push them further behind the pack, and one feels the batting is most under the spotlight as they aim to turn things around.

BBL 2022/23 Match 23: STR vs STA Possible Playing XIs

Strikers have named their squad. Wes Agar could return in place of offspinner Ben Manenti.

Adelaide Strikers: 1. Matthew Short, 2. Henry Hunt, 3. Chris Lynn, 4. Adam Hose, 5. Colin de Grandhomme, 6. Thomas Kelly, 7. Rashid Khan, 8. Harry Nielsen (wk), 9. Wes Agar, 10. Henry Thornton, 11. Peter Siddle (c)

Stoinis has scored 242 runs in nine innings vs Stars at an average of 26.82 and strike rate of 108.52. This season, he has mustered just 14 runs in four matches.

Melbourne Stars: 1. Joe Clarke (wk), 2. Tom Rogers, 3. Beau Webster, 4. Nick Larkin, 5. Marcus Stoinis, 6. Hilton Cartwright, 7. Campbell Kellaway, 8. Nathan Coulter-Nile, 9. Luke Wood, 10. Trent Boult, 11. Adam Zampa (c)
