Melbourne Stars will take on Hobart Hurricanes in the 8th match of Big Bash League 2019-20 at Ted Summerton Reserve in Moe, Victoria. We will provide STA vs HUR Dream11 Prediction, Match Preview, and Probable Playing XI of the match.
Melbourne Stars have started their season with a win to their name. They performed well as a unit in their first match. Batting first, Stars lost an early wicket and kept on losing wickets at regular intervals and looked like they would collapse to a low score. But once Maxwell came to the crease, everything changed. Though wickets were falling at the other end, Maxwell did not bother and went on with his Batting carnage and scored 83 runs from just 39 balls. Except for Maxwell, there was no other significant performance. They managed to score a total of 167 runs.
Melbourne Stars bowlers gave away too many runs at the beginning of the innings, but after they picked up Chris Lynn and Tom Banton’s wicket, they came back very firmly into the match and restricted the opposition to 145 runs and won by 22 runs. Adam Zampa Bowled well and picked up three wickets, Haris Rauf and Daniel Worrall looked very impressive and picked up 2 wickets each, Sandeep Lamichhane managed to pick up one wicket. Melbourne Stars would be hoping to continue their winning momentum against Hobart Hurricanes.
Hobart Hurricanes had a thrilling first match, and they managed to win it. That match was ultimately a brilliant display of bowling. Batting first, Hurricanes played their first half of innings well and scored 70 runs in 10 overs at the loss of only one wicket. But in the final 10 overs, they managed to score only 59 runs and lost 8 wickets. They put up a total of 129 runs, and it was up to the bowlers to defend such a small total. D’Arcy Short was the only batsman who played well and scored 51 runs.
The Hurricanes bowlers were just brilliant in that match. In the powerplay, they gave away 48 runs and managed to pick up only one wicket, but after that, they started picking up wickets every over and got the opposition all out for just 104 runs and won the match by 25 runs. Qais Ahmad was just outstanding and picked up 4 wickets for only 12 runs from his 4 overs. James Faulkner and Simon Milenko picked up 2 wickets each. Riley Meredith picked up one wicket. This win would have given Hurricanes a lot of confidence, and they would want to perform even better against Melbourne Stars.
