Adelaide Strikers vs Hobart Hurricanes – Big Bash League Betting Tips, Latest Odds, Team News and Predictions – 26/1/2020

The Adelaide Strikers remain among a handful of favourites to win the 2019-20 Big Bash League. The Hobart Hurricanes are still in the running for the next stage of the tournament. A win for Adelaide will reaffirm their status amoung the popular bets. A victory for the Hurricanes will keep their hopes alive.

The Strikers and Hurricanes met earlier this month, when the Adelaide franchise won despite a whirlwind 90 from South African big-hitter 90. This time, similar themes will emerge, as Adelaide’s bowlers are properly challenged by Hobart’s batters.

Adelaide Strikers vs Hobart Hurricanes – Team News

The Strikers have won four matches in a row and this fine stretch of form shows in the solidity of their squad. They are happy to have Alex Carey back in the ranks, after his stint in India for Australia‘s ODI series. He made a positive impact upon his return to the squad. Then there’s Travis Head, Jake  Weatherald and Phil Salt among the Strikers’ other big-hitting batsmen.

Billy Stanlake is still around, but struggling to get game time in a seam attack largely spearheaded by Wes Agar and Peter Siddle. Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan is there, too, and could benefit from the conditions at the Adelaide Oval again.

The Hurricanes have named an unchanged squad, but might tinker with their playing XI. Captain Matthew Wade and the veteran George Bailey have plenty of experience to push the squad through the testing times of the business end of a high-profile T20 tournament.

D’Arcy Short has become somewhat of an all-rounder for the Hurricanes, complementing with his top-order hitting with some handy left-arm wrist-spin these days. He is exactly what an XI that has otherwise seemed one-dimensional needs.

Siddle and Miller have led some of the markets previously, but this time it is time to cast an eye to other parts of the XI. This is shaping up for a tight fixture, dotted with intriguing odds.

Carey on with Carey

Head, Salt and Weatherald offer shorter odds for the Strikers’ top batsman, but Carey further down the order at 4.50 with Bet365 is a good option. He’s in pretty good form and might break into the country’s Test XI eventually. He is a good cross-format cricketer, particularly in T20s at the moment.

Short to impress with the ball again

T20 cricket really does serve up the opportunity for relatively unrecognised bowlers to take wickets. It has been shown in the Indian Premier League with Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina and others and now in the Big Bash League with Nic Maddinson and Short. He took a five-for recently and is priced at 5.00 to be the Hurricanes’ top bowler again.

Adelaide Strikers vs Hobart Hurricanes – Prediction

Second position in the seven-team standings beckons for the Strikers, if the Hurricanes don’t spoil the opposition’s plans. History between the two teams has been up and down, with no obvious dominance for one or the other.

Best Bet: D’Arcy Short to be Player of the Match at 9.00 with Bet365
