Match Prediction – Hobart Hurricanes vs Adelaide Strikers, 22nd Match BBL 2021/2022

Hobart Hurricanes will be up against Adelaide Strikers in the 22nd match of the Big Bash League 2021. Although the teams are separated by just three points, they occupy different spots in the table.

Hobart Hurricanes have had a pretty decent campaign so far. They snatched an important win against the defending champions Sydney Sixers. Although the game was interrupted by rain and Hurricanes had the upper hand, they ended up defeating their opponents by 44 runs. However, they suffered consecutive hammerings at the hand of Perth Scorchers who are still unbeaten in the competition. Hobart Hurricanes got back to winning ways with a 24-run victory over Melbourne Stars in their most recent game.

As a result, they are third in the table with 10 points. Hurricanes are seven points behind Perth Scorchers at the top and trail Sydney Sixers in second position by four points. They have a Net Run Rate of -0.418.

Adelaide Strikers, on the other hand, have just one win to show for all their efforts in BBL11 so far. That win arrived against the team at the bottom of the table Melbourne Renegades. Strikers have looked far from posing a threat to their oppositions in the competition. Besides the narrow loss against Renegades in their opening fixture, they’ve suffered massive defeats in the remaining games. They need to shuffle things around in order to get back to winning track.

With one win from five matches, Adelaide Strikers are third from bottom in the Big Bash League table. They have seven points to their name and a Net Run Rate of -0.494. Strikers are two points away from the top four places and need to mount a strong winning run at any cost before it becomes too late.

As far as the head-to-head record is concerned, Adelaide Strikers have been more successful. Strikers have won nine games while Hobart Hurricanes have managed only six wins. Adelaide Strikers have won three of the last five matches between the two teams.

Who will win today’s match?

Although both teams are far from getting into groove this season, Hobart Hurricanes are likely to win this encounter. Adelaide Strikers’ displays so far have been pretty woeful and it wouldn’t be surprising to see them suffer another loss here.

Scott Boland continues to be unavailable after being included in Australia’s extended Ashes squad. Hobart Hurricanes will also miss Joel Paris because of injury.

Harry Conway and local replacement Daniel Drew were included in the extended squad of Adelaide Strikers for the previous game. They will most likely retain their places in the squad.

Matthew Wade and Ben McDermott opened the batting for Hobart Hurricanes for the first time in the previous match. The pair got off the blocks extremely quickly and provided a wonderful start at the top of the order. Hurricanes are likely to persist with the same combination for this match as well.
