STR vs HUR: The 30th match of the Big Bash League 2022 will have Adelaide Strikers take on Hobart Hurricanes at the Adelaide Oval Cricket Ground on Thursday. The Strikers have blown hot and cold this season, having managed to win 3 matches out of seven so far.
Adelaide Strikers Preview
After winning three back-to-back games, Adelaide Strikers failed to secure a single win in their next four matches. They are in horrendous form and need to turn their fortunes around as soon as possible.
On the other hand, Hobart Hurricanes have 3 wins in 6 matches and are sitting just below Adelaide Strikers. Both the team took on each other in their last match.
The Strikers put on a brilliant batting display and managed to score 177 runs in the first innings. Short provided a brilliant start with a top-class knock of 38 runs in 26 balls. His partner, Henry Hunt got out cheaply for just 3 runs but Chris Lynn lit up the stadium by hitting 9 fours and 3 sixes.
He smashed 87 runs in just 58 balls at a strike rate of 150. He will be a player to watch out for on Thursday. Later, de Grandomme provided the finishing touches with an 18-ball 30-run cameo.
Hobart Hurricanes Preview
The Hurricanes weren’t at their best with the ball and would be looking to put in an improved performance with the ball. In pursuit of the target, the Hobart Hurricanes chased down the score in just 17.3 overs.
Caleb Jewell (54) and McDermott (58) right the foundation with an 86-run partnership for the opening wicket. Unbeaten contributions from D Arcy Short (27 off 22) and Tim David (27 off 13) in the latter part of the innings meant the Hurricanes chased down the score pretty easily.
The batting unit fired for both teams but it’s the bowling department which needs improvement. It will be interesting to see how the two teams perform in the next match.
