Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Stars Match Preview:
The 20th game of the Big Bash League 2023-24 will see the Adelaide Strikers host the Melbourne Stars at Adelaide. It is also the end of the year match and is one of the biggest games of the season.
They have played 4 games so far and have won just 1 out of them and their first game was washed out due to rain. They will be desperate to win this game and start a winning momentum.
With the bat, their batting is looking in good touch with their top order looking in solid form. D’Arcy Short and Chris Lynn were the top scorers in the last game 54 and 56 runs respectively.
With the ball, their bowlers have also been good but have proved to be expensive in the middle overs. Their bowlers failed to defend 177 in the last game and will look to perform better in this one.
The Melbourne Stars on the other hand, have bounced back well after losing their first 3 games and have won two back-to-back games after that. They look strong on paper and will be the favorites going into this game.
With the ball, their bowlers have looked good in the last two games and picked up wickets consistently. Skipper Glenn Maxwell was the pick of the bowlers in the last game and picked up 3 wickets.
With the bat, the last game against Hurricanes was shortened due to rain. Glenn Maxwell looked solid at the top and scored 35* runs. Daniel Lawrence has been added into the squad for this game.
