Up next are the best betting tips for Hobart Hurricanes v Adelaide Strikers ahead of yet another intriguing contest Down Under.
Hurricanes to win: why is this a good bet?
Adelaide Strikers are actually 8-5 up on the head-to-head between the two over the years but the Strikers don’t look quite as strong as in previous years in terms of personnel.
Hobart Hurricanes were good value for both their wins so far, including of course against these very opponents. Key to the win was just how well the Hurricanes’ batsmen handled Rashid Khan.
The Afghan twirler normally takes a couple of wickets and goes at around 6 an over but this time he took just one wicket and went for 38 runs in four overs.
Different day, different game. But if the Hurricanes can play him that well again, they’ll have every chance of repeating their win.
Why our hot bet is so hot
Rashid Khan is always the man to beat as Strikers top bowler and there are good reasons to think we can get him beat.
As we said already, the Hurricanes took a liking to him and it may be some time before he’s fully acclimated to Australian pitches.
Peter Siddle took a wicket and went for just 29 runs so clearly the Hurricanes found him tough to face. A similar effort could see veteran Siddle go very close.
