It is a do-or-die Eliminator clash in the Big Bash League 2021-22 where the Adelaide Strikers would be fighting against the Hobart Hurricanes. The Strikers have made a good comeback into the tournament and defeated the defending champions Sydney Sixers by a huge margin in the last game. The Hurricanes experimented against the Melbourne Stars to suffer a crushing defeat in their last league game. 

The Adelaide Strikers lost both their games in Melbourne earlier and this would be a big challenge for them. The side has done well with the bat in the last few games, but their bowling attack hasn’t been in the best of form. The Hurricanes would come hard at them with the bat, and this is likely to make this contest interesting. 

Adelaide Strikers Preview

It has been one of the most spectacular turnarounds for the Strikers this season. The side which only one win in the first eight games made a strong comeback to finish 4th on the points table. They defeated the Sydney Sixers by 8 wickets in the last game, their fourth consecutive win. Siddle would want his players to have their feet on the gas pedal and register a win in this game. 

The side would expect a good start in this game from Matt Renshaw and Matthew Short in this game. The middle-order has been strengthened with the return of Travis Head and he would look to add runs with Jake Weatherald, Ian Cockbain, and Jonathan Wells. The side has good strength down the order with Alex Carey and Thomas Kelly in the side and the pair would aim to add quick runs. 

Their bowling attack has been the weak link for the side, and they would need to see good spells from Renshaw and Harry Conway in this game. Siddle hasn’t been at his best and he would aim to come up with a good show in this game. Fawad Ahmed has done well and the side would have big expectations from him in this do-or-die game.

Adelaide Strikers Predicted Playing XI:

Peter Siddle (c), Matt Renshaw, Travis Head, Jonathan Wells, Jake Weatherald, Thomas Kelly, Alex Carew (wk), Henry Thornton, Harry Conway, Fawad Ahmed, Ian Cockbain

Adelaide Strikers Actual Playing XI:

Thomas Kelly, Peter Siddle, Ian Cockbain, Harry Conway, Matt Short, Henry Thornton, Jonathan Wells, Matt Renshaw, Alex Carey, Fawad Ahmed, Travis Head

Hobart Hurricanes Preview

Matthew Wade’s side tried to test their bowling bench strength in the last game against the Melbourne Stars and paid the price going down by 106 runs. The side would have to come out of this shock defeat and do well here. Wade would be aware of the form the Strikers have been in the last leg of the tournament and shall expect to see a good show from his players. 

Ben McDermott has been the top run-getter this season and he would aim to provide the side with a good start here opening with Caleb Jewell. The middle-order is formidable with Jordan Thompson, D’Arcy Short and Wade in good form and runs would be expected from their bats. The side would also like to see big hitting from Peter Handscomb and Tim David down the order. 

They would field a full-strength attack in this game and Thomas Rogers and Riley Meredith would need to get them early breakthroughs. Scott Boland is expected to make a comeback into the side, and he would have an important role to play. They would also expect good performances from Sandeep Lamichhane, Tim David, and Short who were torn apart in the last game.

Hobart Hurricanes Predicted Playing XI:

Matthew Wade (c & wk), Ben McDermott, D’Arcy Short, Peter Handscomb, Tim David, Jordan Thompson, Thomas Rogers, Riley Meredith, Sandeep Lamichhane, Scott Boland, Caleb Jewell

Weather Conditions

There would be clear skies over Melbourne on January 21. The wicket is expected to be slow, and batsmen shall have to get their eyes set in to do well in this game. There isn’t expected to be much on this track for the fast bowlers thanks to the weather and the side batting first would aim at a total of 160 runs or more.

Venue Details

Melbourne Cricket Ground has a good surface for batting though there has been slowness on the surface this season. Fast bowlers get assistance from the wicket with the new ball but there isn’t much for them thereafter. Spinners enjoy bowling with deep boundaries providing them with a shield.

Toss: To Bowl

We have seen slow surfaces at the MCG in most games and the sides chasing the scores have had an advantage. Most teams have preferred to bowl first upon winning the toss here and we expect this trend to continue in this game and the side winning the toss would like to bowl first.  

Hobart Hurricanes would be down on confidence after their poor show in the last game. Though the side would bring in their main bowlers for the game they are likely to fast big challenge from the Adelaide Strikers. The Strikers have momentum behind them with four consecutive wins and they would look to make the most out of it here and shall start ahead of the Hurricanes.
