HUR vs STA Dream11 Prediction & Player Stats: 23rd Match | BBL 2020-21

Hello and welcome to our HUR vs STA Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Stars will play against each other in the 23rd match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at Bellerive Oval, Hobart.

Hobart Hurricanes:

The Hobart Hurricanes have performed decently so far as they have won 4 out of 6 matches and are currently at 3rd position on the points table with 15 points. Hurricanes had a thrilling victory as they won just by one run in the last match.

D’Arcy Short‘s performance has many ups and downs so far, and he failed to perform in the last match, and his partner McDermott after a couple of good knocks, failed twice in a row. The No.1 T20 batsman David Malan made his BBL debut this season and batted decently in the last match.

Skipper Handscomb has entirely been out of form this season and has not performed even in a single match. Colin Ingram and Tim David have been scoring runs in the lower middle-order and providing a decent finish for the Hurricanes in every game.

James Faulkner, who has been the consistent wicket-taker for Hurricanes, did not play the last match due to injury, but Riley Meredith has been bowling well and consistently picking up wickets. Scott Boland, Nathan Ellis, and Keemo Paul managed to pick up wickets in the last match.

Although Hurricanes have been winning matches, they still need to work on their batting performance, whereas their bowling has been right from the beginning.

Melbourne Stars:

The Melbourne Stars have performed decently as they have won 2 out of the five matches, and one match was abandoned due to rain. Melbourne Stars are now at the 5th position on the points table with a total of 10 points.

Stars, after a brilliant start to the tournament, have faced two back to back defeats. Opening batsman Andre Fletcher has been playing decently but has not been able to play a big inning. Stoinis has performed decently so far in this season.

Maxwell has been performing brilliantly by scoring runs quickly, but in the last match, he appeared to be a little slow with his approach. Pooran, after a fantastic performance, failed to make an impact in the previous game. Ben Dunk and Adam Zampa scored decently in the end, but that was of no use.

The bowling has been very poor in the last two matches as they gave away many runs. Liam Hatcher and Adam Zampa, who were the team’s key bowlers, went for a lot of runs but managed to pick up wickets. Stanlake managed to pick up two wickets in the last match.

Stars need to improve their bowling performance as soon as possible; otherwise, they would need to face many more losses.

The Bellerive Oval pitch was a batting paradise last year and will be no different this year. As it is the start of summer in Australia, the pitches are expected to be flat. The pitch has nothing for the bowlers, but the pacers can still use their variations and be vital in the death overs. 

Three out of the five matches have been won by the team batting first.

The weather will be mostly cloudy with a slight chance of rain on the match day.
