BBL2020-21 season is on full throttle with the league nearing the finals stages with just 4-5 matches remaining for all the teams. Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Stars the two teams in contention in this match are currently caught up in the mid table muddle. This season so closely contested that no more team is separated by more than 2 points between them in the top-7 positions. A win in this match will help the respective team to move at least a couple of places higher and go ahead of their other team. Both teams have lost more matches than they have won in the last 3-4 matches and will look to get momentum going into the business end with a win here.

Adelaide Strikers Preview

Adelaide Strikers top order led the batting effort with Philip Salt (59 runs) sharing a 59-run & 77-run partnership with Matt Renshaw (30 runs) and Alex Carey (42 runs) respectively. But their middle order slumped from 136/1 to 177/7 scoring just 41 runs in their last 5 overs to end 10-15 runs of short of the target they looked like getting after a good start.

Their bowling unit were unable the stop the opposition as they lost the match by 6 wickets in a final over thriller. Daniel Briggs and Wes Agar dismissed the opening batsmen inside the power play and Rashid Khan took control of the middle overs with a superb spell of 4-0-24-2. They failed to perform well as a unit in the bowling department.

Top players to bet on:

Alex Carey – Carey is having a breakout season with 258 runs at a strike rate of 125. His knock of 42 runs off 25 balls kept the momentum going after the start from the openers in the last game.

Rashid Khan – Rashid Khan is at his usual best with 14 wickets at an economy rate of 6.8 RPO this season too. He will be tough bowler to face in the crucial junctures of the upcoming matches.    

Adelaide Strikers Predicted Playing XI:

Matt Renshaw, Philip Salt, Alex Carey (c & wk), Jonathan Wells, Jake Weatherald , Ryan Gibson, Rashid Khan, Danny Briggs, Wes Agar, Peter Siddle, Harry Conway

Melbourne Stars Preview

Melbourne Stars failed to chase a massive 116 runs in a 10-over shootout last game. Marcus Stoinis (34 runs) and Nick Larkin (35 runs) put on good fight with the bat as they scored 110 runs in 10 overs.  Glenn Maxwell, Nicholas Pooran, and Andre Fletcher are bin good from and will look to score big in this match.

Their bowling unit was taken for runs at over 11 RPO last game. Adam Zampa was superb with the ball as he figures of 2-0-7-2 in the match. All-rounder Glenn Maxwell and Hilton Cartwright gave 42 runs in their 2 overs which ended up a costly for the team. Haris Rauf, Billy Stanlake, and Rainbird will take control of the pace bowling department.  .

Top players to bet on:

Glenn Maxwell – Maxwell has scored 255 runs at a superb strike rate of 150+ this season. His aggressive batting in the middle order is setting up the tone of the innings for his team for a flourish at the end. He will look to continue his purple patch in this match too.

Adam Zampa – Zampa was phenomenal with the ball last game as he gave just 7 runs in 2 overs while others were bring smashed all around the park. He has 12 wickets at an economy rate of just 7 RPO so far.

Weather Conditions

Adelaide is expected to have a bright and sunny weather on the match day which pose no threat to the proceedings of the game whatsoever.

Venue Details

Adelaide is a good batting pitch and we expect batsmen to score freely here. Bowlers may enjoy a little bit of seam movement with the new ball. We can expect average scores to be around 170-190 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Teams have opted to chase the total in 3 out of 4 matches and won 2 matches. The pitch is expected to remain the same throughout the match and we expect both captains to chase the total in this match.

Melbourne Stars have one of the strongest batting lien-ups with all top-5 batsmen capable to scoring runs at an aggressive pace. Adelaide Strikers too has a good top order but a slightly weak middle order. Both teams have quality spinners in form of Rashid Khan and Adam Zampa respectively. Melbourne Stars have a good pace attack but are struggling with the fifth bowling option currently. Adelaide Strikers have already 4 matches at this venue and have good knowledge of the conditions on offer. We expect Melbourne Stars to win this match.
