Preview for STR vs SCO Dream11 Contest
The Adelaide Strikers enter this key contest with great confidence after Rashid Khan powered them to an emphatic win against Brisbane Heat in their last outing. The Scorchers have been a ruthless unit to face this edition and won this reverse fixture quite comfortably, but with the tournament entering its business end, Strikers are more desperate to get big results and finish on a high.
To break into the top four, they will have to win their final three games and expect some results to go their way. They have confidence on their side now, but it won’t be easy to reflect it on the field against a stringent Scorchers unit.
Probable Playing XI
Matthew Short, Henry Hunt, Jake Weatherald , Jonathan Wells, Thomas Kelly, Harry Nielsen (wk), Liam Scott, Henry Thornton, Peter Siddle (c), Harry Conway
Kurtis Patterson, Nick Hobson, Laurie Evans (wk), Ashton Turner (c), Aaron Hardie, Chris Sabburg, Ashton Agar, Andrew Tye, Matthew Kelly, Jason Behrendorff, Peter Hatzoglou
The weather conditions in Adelaide are perfect for a game of cricket, with the temperatures ranging between 16-21 degrees during game time and although some clouds will be hovering around, there is no rain threat for this contest.
Runs have been difficult to come by in the last couple of BBL fixtures at Adelaide Oval, making it a viable option for the teams to chase. Teams batting first must score in excess of 150 to stand a chance.
