We are into the 35th game of the Big Bash League 2021-22 and Adelaide Strikers would be fighting for survival in the tournament as they take on the Hobart Hurricanes. The Strikers suffered yet another loss as they went down against the Sydney Thunder in the last game while the Hobart Hurricanes too lost their last game against Brisbane Heat.
It has been an ordinary season for the Adelaide Strikers as they have won only once and currently sit at the bottom of the points table. Their chances of qualifying for the playoffs look slim at the moment, and the betting apps odds for this game are showing that. The side would need to register a big win here to regain their confidence. Hurricanes with the form they are in shall make it difficult for the Strikers here.
Things just haven't been right for Peter Siddle’s side. They have won just one game so far and come here with a big defeat against the Sydney Thunder. The side went down by 28 runs in the last game owning to poor efforts with the ball. Siddle would like to see a better show from his bowlers as they take on a good batting side in this game.
Jake Weatherald and Matthew Short must provide the side with a good start to win this game. They have scored runs in previous games. The side would also expect runs from Matt Renshaw, Henry Hunt, and Jonathan Wells as they haven’t been consistent. Harry Nielson, Rashid Khan, and Thomas Kelly shall have important roles to play down the order.
Their bowling attack has been in terrible form and the side would need a good start from Wes Agar and Short as Hurricanes have a strong batting line-up. Siddle will have to improve his game as his form is hurting the side. Rashid Khan and Fawad Ahmed have important roles to play and lift the side out of the trouble they have been so far.

It was poor efforts with the bat from Matthew Wade’s side in the last game that saw them going down against the Brisbane Heat by 14 runs. The lower middle-order hasn’t done well for the team, and they would have to strike form here. Wade would like to exploit Strikers’ lack of form and move up on the points table with a win here.
Ben McDermott and Matthew Wade missed out in the last game, but the pair has been in good form, and they would look to set up a good opening wicket stand. The side has good strength in the middle order with D’Arcy Short and Harry Brook in the team. They would also like to see Peter Handscomb, Tim David and Jordan Thompson play well down the order as this has been one of their major weaknesses.
Thomas Rogers and Riley Meredith regained form in the last game, and this is welcome news for the side. Nathan Ellis has done well, and he will have an important role to play here. Sandeep Lamichhane has been inconsistent, and the side would expect better spells from him. Thompson and Tim David add to the side’s bowling options.

Weatherman predicts slightly overcast skies over Adelaide on January 5. The wicket is expected to be flat, and batsmen are likely to have a good time on this surface. There would be little margin for error as far as bowlers are concerned. The side batting first would have to a score of more than 180 runs here - India's cricket betting sites will be offering decent odds for such a target.
Adelaide Oval has short boundaries around the square and batsmen have always enjoyed batting on this ground. The outfield is fast, and we have seen big scores here. There is some assistance for the fast bowlers at the start of the games. Spinners have generally struggled here with little on this wicket for them.
Three games have been played here and in all three games, the side batting first has won convincingly. It is one of the best batting surfaces in the country and big scores have been made here. The side winning the toss would have no hesitation in batting first in this game.
Adelaide Strikers are struggling, and the side has had to deal with an extended lack of form from most of their players. The bowling attack has been completely out of form, and this has resulted in big defeats for them. Hobart Hurricanes have been a much better side with the bat and the ball. This would put them slightly ahead of the Strikers in this game.
Hobart Hurricanes to win!
