History will repeat itself when the Adelaide Strikers take on Hobart Hurricanes in Adelaide on Monday. It is these two teams who competed against each other for the crown in the final of BBL 07. The Strikers were the successful team back then as they managed a 25-run win to clinch their maiden title. However, one year down the line, things have changed drastically.Cricket betting tips of Adelaide Strikers Vs Hobart Hurricanes.
With four wins and four losses, the home team is battling for a place in the top-four. They are currently placed fifth on the points table with eight points. On the other hand, the Hobart Hurricanes have been a dominant team at disposal this season. With seven wins in eight matches, they’ve almost sealed a spot in the semi-final. It will be interesting to see if they’ll be able to break the jinx of not being able to win at the Adelaide Oval since 2011.
Ridley Meredith is Hurricanes’ joint highest wicket-taker this season with 13 wickets to his name. He picked two or more wickets in four out of the eight matches and could be your power pick. The pacer consistently bowls over 140 clicks and has got some good variations in his armour. Darcy Short and Bailey are scoring runs in canter and chasing down any total with ease.
Strikers best performer is Rashid but along with him no other players is consistently performing. Ingram is in good form but looked poor in patches. Neser, Laughlin hasn’t been lethal.Cricket betting tips of Adelaide Strikers Vs Hobart Hurricanes.

Weather- The weather is fine and temperature should be 30-35℃. Not extreme heat will be felt but it will be decent enough.Cricket betting tips of Adelaide Strikers Vs Hobart Hurricanes.
Ground and Conditions -It has been the best surface for the batsmen this season. The short square boundaries help the chasing teams. Also, the track assists slightly more to the batsmen in the second innings. Though, it is important for them to spend some time in the middle before they yield the big shots. The track also helps the bowlers a fair bit when they hit the right areas. The Australia-India ODI last week was easily the best batting surface India played on the whole tour.Average score batting first here is 169.
Toss- Chasing is the better option but then Adelaide always fancy defending a total. So it should not matter who wins the toss.
Prediction – Hobart is favourite but with home crowd and previous record behind them Adelaide will be the winner in our picks.
