 Toss Prediction
Adelaide is a wicket that gets slower in the second inning thus chasing might not be that easy, especially when you have quality spinners in your team.

 Weather & Pitch Report
⛅ Weather:
The weather at Adelaide looks fantastic with plenty of sunshine.
🏟️ Pitch:
The surface of Adelaide has always been batting friendly. The pitch will get slower as the match progresses so chasing will be the difficult of two task here.

 Team NEWS: 

 STRIKERS Team News: 
Adelaide Strikers have been jolted by a huge blow as their ace pacer Peter Siddle will be sidelined for the next few matches due to thumb fracture.

 STARS Team News: 
The situation for the Melbourne Stars is not too different. A couple of more losses and their campaign will be in jeopardy. Looking at their batting, they do look a very strong team but the performances have been missing from the key players. There are great chances that they’ll go in with the same XI

 STR Key Players: 

 Alex Carey:
Alex Carey by far has been the best Strikers batsmen. He’s the highest run getter for the Strikers with258 runs in 7 matches. We’ll back him to play well against the Stars in this crunch game. 

 Phil Salt:
Phil Salt played a good knock of 59 in the previous match. He’s been good but not very consistent. Strikers will hope that he can bat the same way like he did against Renegades.

 Rashid Khan:
The pitch at Adelaide will be very suitable for someone like like Rashid Khan. He’ll be their main man with the ball.

 STA Key Players:

 Marcus Stoinis:
Another player that Stars heavily depend upon. He’s played some good knocks in the last few games and will have to another good innings for Stars in this important game. 

 Glenn Maxwell:
Glen Maxwell has been brilliant for the Stars in BBL 2020-21 and will have to play a big role if Stars have to post a decent total.

 Adam Zampa:
The pitch at Adelaide will support the spinners thus Zampa will have to play a big part for the Stars.

Strikers has not been in the best of form and have lost 3 off their last 4 matches.

 Team Player Info: 

Striker :
– Rashid Khan will play his last game today and leave for his National duties.
– Philip Salt will open the innings along with Matt Renshaw. Salt has always been a hit miss candidate but is playing some good Cricket recently. Renshaw scored back to back 30+ scores opening the innings.
– Captain Alex Carey will bat 1 down. Carey will also keep the Wickets. He scored 42 last game against the Renegades.
– Jono Wells will bat next at 2 down. Wells was among the top 5 scorers last season and will be an important pick in case of top order failure. He scored 66 last 2nd game.
– Weatherald will bat at 3 down. Weatherald who generally opens is Batting low from last 3 games and this move gave position results so team will look forward to play him at the same position.
– Rashid Khan and Danny Briggs will lead the spin department. Briggs is highest Wicket taker in English domestic Cricket. Rashid picked 2 Wickets last game.
– Wes Agar, Peter Siddle and Harry Conway will be leading the pace attack for Adelaide. Siddle and Agar both shared 3 Wickets each last 2nd game.


– The Stars have been delighted by the arrival of Pakistani Pacer Haris Rauf but Nicolas Pooran has left the squad and returned home Which is a big blow. Also, Zahir Khan has returned as replacement for Pooran.
– Andre Fletcher will open the innings for the stars along with Marcus Stoinis. Stoinis smashed 97 runs last 2nd game amd remained not out , he is still not bowling.
– Nick Larkin or Seb Gotch will bat at 1 down. Larkin had a brilliant last year with 2 50+ scores in 4 games but haven’t got much chance to play this season.
– Glenn Maxwell will bat at 2 down followed by Nic Maddinson. Maxwell is also bowling good number of overs. Maxi smashed 37 ball 70 runs against the sixers.
– Hilton Cartwright will bat next. Cartwright has been brilliant so far contributing with both bat and bowl but haven’t converted his scores into a big one. 
– Adam Zampa, Zahir Khan and Glenn Maxwell will lead the spin attack for the Stars. 
– Billy Stanlake, Haris Rauf, Sam Rainbird will handle the pace attack. Coulter Nile is not available for almost a month.
