The finals get underway with a massive eliminator between the Strikers and the Hurricanes – two evenly matched teams throughout the season, and each with their own reasons to feel confident.
At one point in the season, the Strikers looked dead and buried – destined for a spot in the doldrums of the divisional standings. Four wins in a row at the back-end of the season propelled them to fourth – and there is a renewed vigour surrounding their side coming into this.
The Hurricanes were blown away by a Glenn Maxwell-shaped tornado in their last game before the Eliminator, and will hope the mauling at his hands won’t affect their preparation for the biggest game of their season to date.
I have been looking at the online cricket satar bazar and other facts and figures before play starts at 1.45 pm (IST) on Friday 21st January at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
Adelaide Strikers vs Hobart Hurricanes Betting Odds
The favourites for this are the Adelaide Strikers at 1.72 – probably justified after the prolific end to their campaign.
Personally, I am backing the Hurricanes. Ben McDermott, Matthew Wade, and D’Arcy Short provide firepower that is unmatched in this competition – I think they will get the job done and they are my premium pick of today’s cricket predictions.
