ADS vs HBH Match Prediction - Jan 05, 2023

The Adelaide Strikers will be hosting the Hobart Hurricanes in their next BBL 12 match. Both teams played against each other in their previous outing and so will know what to expect. That match ended in a comprehensive 7-wicket victory for the Hurricanes despite the Strikers putting up a decent total on the board. 

The Adelaide Strikers have now lost their previous four matches and have slid to fifth on the BBL League Table. They are still above the Hobart Hurricanes who have three wins from six matches but a worse net run rate compared to the Adelaide Strikers. 

The cricket betting sites have the Hurricanes as the favorite to win right now.

ADS vs HBH Team Previews

Adelaide Strikers

Chris Lynn played an excellent inning of 87 in the previous match to carry the Strikers to 177 but it proved to be quite insufficient in the end. He has been the best batter for the Strikers this season but it is clear to see, this is not the explosive Lynn of his prime. He can get quick runs but more often than not, his strike rate stays between the 130-150 mark at best. 

Matt Short seems to have just tapered off after his excellent start and the rest of the batting has not quite performed. Adam Hose and Colin de Grandhomme have a few cameos but nothing more. There is also a clear lack of depth in the lineup. 

The bowling attack for the Adelaide Strikers has been very effective on occasion but not having Thornton available to them in the previous match showed some shortcomings. Wes Agar and Rashid Khan were quite expensive and none of the other bowlers were able to get any measure of control over the Hurricanes.

Hobart Hurricanes

The Hobart Hurricanes came into BBL 12 with a strong squad that many fancied as possible total contenders. They have played six matches with three wins and three losses. Interestingly, they are yet to win two matches in a row! Faheem Ashraf joined the lineup in place of Shadab Khan which could be a net negative for the Hurricanes, all things considered. 

The powerful batting lineup is showing some good signs of form as almost all their major batters have scored some important runs. Ben McDermott, Darcy Short, Caleb Jewell, Matthew Wade, and Tim David are all powerful strikers that are backed up by Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf, and Mitchell Owen. 

In terms of batting strength and depth, the Hurricanes are far ahead of the Strikers.

The bowling unit has been led by Patrick Dooley. His mystery spin has been tough to pick for most of the players and the fast bowlers also seem to be hitting their stride. Rilee Meredith and Nathan Ellis will play a vital role in this match as well.

Pitch and Conditions

The conditions in Adelaide are expected to be perfect for cricket. Mild temperatures and no threat of rain. The pitch is a high-scoring one with short square boundaries that can be targetted. The big-hitting lineup of the Hobart Hurricanes will fancy itself at this venue for sure. We think the bowlers will struggle and a score of close to 170 could be seen as par. 

ADS vs HBH Betting Tips

We are going to back the Hobart Hurricanes to win. They have a stronger batting lineup and seem to be hitting their form. With four losses in a row, the Adelaide Strikers are spiraling. The batting lineup of the Strikers is not convincing enough and is far too dependent on just one or two players. 

Bet on the Hobart Hurricanes to win.
