mls vs hbh Match Prediction & Analysis

BBL 2020-21 is coming to the half-way mark with each team playing 6-7 matches so far. Melbourne Stars started the season in superb fashion winning their first two matches but their campaign took a turnaround as they failed to win their next 4 matches. They need to end their losing streak before they lose out in the qualification race. Hobart Hurricanes on the other end has surged to the second position in the points table with a win in their last 2 matches. They will look to extend their points tally with yet another win in this match.

Teams Preview

Melbourne Stars Preview

Melbourne Stars batting unit failed to build partnerships as skipper Glenn Maxwell put on lone fight with the ball scoring 70 runs off 37 balls. Rest of the batting unit scored 67 runs off 83 balls with no batsmen scoring more than 15 runs. Only 4 batsmen crossed the 2-figure mark in the match.

Billy Stanlake was excellent with the ball taking 3 wickets in the match. Glenn Maxwell and Rainbird chipped in with a wicket each. Liam Hatcher and Zakir Khan bowled economically for combined figures of 8-0-60-0.They lake fifth bowling option and is a big concern for the team’s bowling department.

Glenn Maxwell – Maxwell has scored 249 runs at a strike rate of 150+ this season and is in superb form with the bat. He is also contributing with some quiet overs and crucial wickets with the ball in hand.

Billy Stanlake – Stanlake has bowling figures of 2/19 & 3/22 in the last two matches and he will look to continue his good from with the ball in this match top take early wickets.

Hobart Hurricanes Preview

Dawid Malan led the Hurricanes batting charge with his 75 runs with the bat. Ben McDermott (26 runs) and Colin Ingram (26 runs) shared 50+ partnerships with Malan to take their score to 164/5 in the 20 overs. They finished 10-15 runs short after the superb start given by the top order.

Nathan Ellis and Scott Bolan were superb with the ball picking up 5 wickets in the match and gave runs at less than 6 RPO. Sandeep Lamichchame and Johan Botha gave runs at more than 9 RPO but picked up 3 crucial wickets. Their bowlers never allowed momentum to opposition as they picked up wickets at regular intervals to win the match by 21 runs.

Top players to bet on:

Dawid Malan – Malan is slowly becoming a force in the T20 format scoring runs across all conditions consistently. His 75 runs led his team`s batting charge in the last match.

Nathan Ellis – Ellis had brilliant bowling figures of 4-0-11-2 in the match and strangled the opposition in the middle overs. He will look to continue his good form with the ball.  

Hobart Hurricanes Predicted Playing XI:

D Arcy Short, Ben McDermott (wk), Dawid Malan, Peter Handscomb (c), Colin Ingram, Tim David, Johan Botha, Nathan Ellis, Scott Boland, Riley Meredith, Sandeep Lamichhane
