Adelaide Strikers vs Hobart Hurricanes – Match 30 Preview and Updates

Adelaide Strikers led the way with three wins in three games. After four consecutive defeats, the last season’s semi-finalists have dropped to fourth place in the points table.

They will face the Hobart Hurricanes at home in the rematch immediately following their 177-run loss in Hobart. The Hurricanes won by 7 wickets with 16 balls remaining thanks to a brilliant start from Caleb Jewell and Ben McDermott and a proper finish from Tim David.

Despite the fact that the Strikers have scored 170 points or more in their last two games, Peter Siddle must be concerned about the bowling effort. The bowlers were outstanding against the Strikers, picking up 7 wickets while defending a low total of 133 runs.

However, Strikers have conceded 186 bowling first and 178 bowling second since then. So far this season, the Hobart Hurricanes have won three and lost three matches.

Hobart has lost after every win this season, and their performances have also been inconsistent. However, with the openers back in form, the Hurricanes look more promising in Adelaide.

The 30th Match between Adelaide Strikers vs Hobart Hurricanes will take place on January 5th, 2023 at Adelaide Oval, Adelaide.

Adelaide Strikers (Match Odds – 2.05):


Peter Siddle and company suffered their first defeat of the season when they failed to chase down 167 runs against Brisbane. The batting continued to fail, as the Strikers finished the next match with only 133 runs on the board after opting to bat first.

Finally, in the next two games, Adam Hose, Henry Hunt, and Chris Lynn led the comeback with the bat. Nonetheless, the Strikers’ losing streak continued, and they are now back at home looking for a win.

Lynn’s 87 off 58 balls in the previous game at Hobart was for naught as the bowlers failed miserably in defending a good total. The Strikers’ key bowlers are Wes Agar, Rashid Khan, and Peter Siddle.

Strikers suffer when these three are expensive and fail to deliver breakthroughs. Adelaide’s main concern right now is the form of these three bowlers.

Henry Thornton, the right-arm fast bowler who was instrumental in the Strikers’ early victories, is another bowler whose economy is concerning.

Colin de Grandhomme and Rashid Khan can bat at the bottom of the order. Strikers have a number of impact players in the top and middle orders who can help them reach a competitive total. All the hosts require now is a strong performance from their key bowlers.

Full Squad:

Wes Agar, Cameron Boyce, Alex Carey, Harry Conway, Colin de Grandhomme, Ryan Gibson, Travis Head, Adam Hose, Henry Hunt, Thomas Kelly, Rashid Khan, Chris Lynn, Harry Nielsen, Matt Short, Jake Weatherald, Henry Thorton, Peter Siddle, Ben Manenti

Hobart Hurricanes (Match Odds – 1.77):


So far in BBL 2022-23, this is Hobart Hurricanes’ journey – W L W L W L W. They have struggled to gain traction as a result of inconsistent performances from their key players.

Hurricanes won by 8 runs thanks to brilliant bowling performances from Shadab Khan and Riley Meredith while defending 122 against Melbourne Stars. The following game, both of these bowlers were very costly, and the Hurricanes ended up conceding 228 runs after opting to bowl first.

The fact that both openers scored fifty points in the previous game is fantastic news for the Hurricanes. Previously, the batting lineup struggled greatly, and there were few reliable players aside from Matthew Wade.

The Hurricanes made some key changes to their starting lineup for their last home game against the Strikers. Shadab Khan was replaced by Faheem Ashraf, and Mitchell Owen took over for James Neesham. The all-rounders provide unquestionable depth to this batting lineup.

At number five, Tim David is followed by Asif Ali, Mitchell Owen, and Faheem Ashraf. The Hurricanes’ key bowlers to keep an eye on are Nathan Ellis, Riley Meredith, and Patrick Dooley.

At this point, the batters are expected to have the most impact for the Hobart Hurricanes.

Full Squad:

Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Tim David, Nathan Ellis, Caleb Jewell, Shadab Khan, Ben McDermott, Riley Meredith, Mitch Owen, Joel Paris, Wil Parker, D’Arcy Short, Matthew Wade, Billy Stanlake, Paddy Dooley, Chris Tremain, Mac Wright
