PREVIEW

Adelaide Strikers are set to host the Hobart Hurricanes for the upcoming Big Bash League contest. The group leaders have been in fine form throughout this campaign. They have just lost one encounter in this tournament so far and have won seven of their eight matches. Melbourne Renegades are the only side to defeat the Hurricanes this season. After that defeat by six wickets, Hurricanes bounced back nicely and won two games on the trot against Melbourne Stars and Perth Scorchers. Both the teams are facing each other for the first time in this season.

Adelaide Strikers are currently sitting on the fourth spot in the points table with four wins and four defeats in their eight matches. They have had a mixed fortune in this campaign and would be hoping to deliver against Hobart Hurricanes. The home side is coming after a 71-run defeat, so they need to win to stay alive in the contest.
