Teams Preview

Hobart Hurricanes Preview

In their previous match, Melbourne Stars suffered defeat at the hands of Adelaide Strikers. With this result, Melbourne Stars are still lying in the top half of the league table with four points to their name. Glenn Maxwell and co. will have to learn from their mistakes and make a strong comeback against Hobart Hurricanes. Melbourne Stars came up short in their game against Adelaide Strikers, as the likes of Glenn Maxwell and Ben Dunk failed to take the side across the finish line.

The biggest concern for Melbourne Stars will be the new-ball pair of Daniel Worrall and Dale Steyn, who conceded a lot of runs in the initial Powerplay overs. The team management will be hoping that Steyn can put in a strong performance in this game.

There seems to be over-reliance on the likes of Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis to do the bulk of the scoring.

Opening batsman Marcus Stoinis also played well and scored 33 runs off 31 balls with the help of two fours and two sixes. Ben Dunk and Nathan-Coulter-Nile chipped in with crucial cameos to take the game down to the wire. The side fell four runs short of victory against Adelaide Strikers Middle-order Peter Handscomb also delivered a decent inning for Stars against Strikers. He scored 34 runs off 28 balls with the help of three fours and one six.

In the bowling department, the side will be relying on the likes of Dale Steyn, Adam Zampa and Sandeep Lamichhane to make crucial breakthroughs with the ball. Sandeep Lamichhane was the standout bowler against Adelaide Strikers and finished with figures of 1 for 15 in his three overs.
