Hurricanes vs Strikers Tips, Preview & Prediction

Both teams played each other on December 13 with the Hurricanes winning by 11 runs. They were sent into bat and recorded 5/174 off their 20 overs with opener D’Arcy Short at his best smashing 72 runs from 48 balls with six 4s and four 6s. Fellow opener Will Jacks scored 34.

The Strikers started poorly losing Phil Salt and Jake Weatherald for 8 and 1 respectively. Matt Renshaw contributed 33 at first drop while Daniel Worrall was the star at number eight finishing unbeaten with 62 from 39 balls.

In terms of standout bowlers in the match, Wes Agar claimed 2/28 off four overs for the Strikers. For the Hurricanes, James Faulkner captured 3/21 off four, Johan Botha 2/20 off three and Riley Meredith 2/30 off four.

The Hurricanes are a perfect two from two and look a strong chance to bring up a third-straight win. They have beaten the Strikers twice in a row and should have their measure on Tuesday night.

Faulkner and Meredith are both bowling well for the Hurricanes with multiple wickets in both games to start BBL|10 and they can trouble the Strikers batting line up once again.

Short is a match winner, which was evident last game against the Strikers, and there’s no reason he can’t cash in by scoring quick runs for the Hurricanes.

Faulkner has taken 77 wickets in his BBL career from 67 matches and has started the season on the right note. His change of pace has brought about the downfall of many opposition players and he is also handy with the bat when required as he averages 23.76 at a strike rate of 111.44. He looks a solid bet to claim the most wickets for the Hurricanes.
