STR vs HUR Dream11 Prediction:
- Chris Lynn has hit 260 runs for Adelaide Strikers since signing for the team from Brisbane Heat ahead of this year’s tournament. He is well worth backing as the Strikers’ highest run scorer against Hobart Hurricanes. Henry Thornton has taken 16 wickets from six games and is our tip for Adelaide Strikers’ top wicket taker in this match.
- Ben McDermott returned to the team with a half-century on Monday and the opener is our pick for Hobart Hurricanes’ highest run scorer against Adelaide Strikers. With the ball, Patrick Dooley took another wicket in the last game and the spinner is a strong choice for Hobart Hurricanes’ top wicket taker in this fixture.
- We recommend backing Chris Lynn to score over 22.5 runs in this clash.

However, the Hurricanes look to be in their best shape of the tournament so far and a win for them could see them move up into the top four places. There are match-winners on both sides but it is the Hobart players who have been the most consistent in recent games. We are predicting a close contest with Hobart Hurricanes getting the win.

STR Key Players:
Chris Lynn –
The experienced batter has hit the most fours of any player in this year’s BBL and struck 87 runs from 58 balls against Hobart Hurricanes on Monday.

The opener is one of only six players to have scored over 200 runs across this season’s competition. He hit one six and three fours against the Hurricanes bowling attack in the last match.
Henry Thornton –
The pace bowler will be fresh after missing the trip to Hobart on Monday. The Hurricanes batters will be wary of facing him at the Adelaide Oval in this game.
HUR Key Players:
Ben McDermott –
The opener hit five fours and two sixes in his comeback game at the Bellerive Oval. He will be relishing facing the same bowling attack in this match.

Although the keeper-batter made only nine runs in the last game, he is Hobart Hurricanes’ highest run scorer in this campaign and will be looking for his third 50+ score in this match.
Patrick Dooley –
The left-arm wrist spinner has picked up 10 wickets with a strike-rate of 12.6 in the competition. He will go up against, and look to outperform, Rashid Khan for the second successive game.
