Adelaide will have a hot and sunny weather on the match day with just 5% chances of rain by the forecasters. Rain interruptions are not expected in this game.
Adelaide is a bowler friendly surface and batters might struggle against the slowness of the surface. They need to settle down on this track before going for big runs. Last match 20 wickets were lost for a match aggregate of just 249 runs.
Both captains might opt to bat first as the track might slow down as the match progresses. Spinners will come in handy in the second half of the match especially.
Both teams are in search for momentum and spirited performances from their players to resurrect their campaign. Brisbane Heat has a better batting line-up when compared to Adelaide Strikers in terms of experience but were bundled out cheaply in the last game. Spinners have been their trump cards for both teams with pacers going for a lot of runs off late. We expect Adelaide Strikers to win this match.
Adelaide Strikers will win this match.
