HUR vs STR Dream11 Prediction & Player Stats: 8th Match | BBL 2020-21

Hello and welcome to our HUR vs STR Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips. Hobart Hurricanes and Adelaide Strikers will clash against each other in the 5th match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 at Aurora Stadium, Launceston.

Hobart Hurricanes:

The Hobart Hurricanes are having a good time currently as they have won 2 out of 2 matches and are currently at 2nd position on the points table with 2 wins and a total of 7 points.

D’Arcy Short and Will Jacks had to face disappointment in the first match, but in the last match, both of them batted brilliantly and added 63 runs to the 1st wicket. Short went on to score 72 runs and was also awarded Man of the Match.

Colin Ingram and Tim David have been batting brilliantly in the middle order, and scoring runs at a good rate. In the lower middle-order, Faulkner also played a handy inning.

In the bowling department, James Faulkner and Riley Meredith have appeared to be in great form as they have been controlling the flow of runs and also picking up wickets. Scott Boland has been expensive in both the matches and also struggled to pick up wickets. Johan Botha bowled well in the last match picking up two important wickets. 

Hurricanes have some outstanding players both in the batting and bowling department, and it won’t be easy for any team to defeat them. They would want to continue their winning momentum by once again winning against the Strikers.

Adelaide Strikers:

The Adelaide Strikers had a disappointing start to the tournament as they lost their first match and are currently at the 7th position on the points table.

In the last match, the bowlers appeared to be a little out of rhythm as they were not able to pick up wickets at regular intervals and also failed to control the flow of runs. Daniel Sams and Jonathan Cook bowled decently picking up 2 wickets. Chris Green and Nathan McAndrew were quite expensive but managed to pick up a wicket each.

The batting line-up failed in the last match as all the top, and middle-order batsmen except Mat Renshaw failed to score at least 10 runs. In the end, Daniel Worrall 62* runs from 39 balls and Danny Briggs 35* runs from 19 balls batted exceptionally well and gave the hope that Strikers might win the match.  

But they couldn’t score boundaries in the last two overs, and as a result, they had to face a defeat by 11 runs. Strikers appear to be a balanced team, but they need their players to perform equally well if they want to win the matches.
