Big Bash League, 2018 | Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Stars, 27th Match | ADS vs MLS Who Will Win
Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Stars are next in line to lock horns against each other at the Adelaide Oval in Adelaide. Both teams are almost head to head in the points table after winning 3 of their six encounters, it’s just the difference of net run-rate which is separating the two sides on the points table.
Both teams are coming into this encounter after a loss on their back, let us know how the two teams are gelling up for this crucial game.
With the departure of some formidable names like Marcus Stoinis and skipper Glenn Maxwell, the Stars need to showcase their potential under the leadership of Nic Maddinson who made his debut for the Stars in the last game.
Though he did not get the result he was hoping in his first game as the skipper, but he needs to rebuild this side in the absence of the aforementioned names.
With some perpetual names like Dwayne Bravo, Ben Dunk, Liam Plunkett etc they need to regroup and focus on what they need to do to attain momentum.
The defending champions have had a mixed sort of tournament so far, they haven’t looked like cruising away. Now, with the return of regular skipper Travis Head, they will find some new ray hope and will look to start fresh under him.
They had a disappointing last game against Sydney Sixers where they succumbed to their third loss of the season by 6 wickets. Jake Weatherald’s well composed 50 and Jonathan Wells unbeaten 42 helped them close down for 150 in 20 overs which was not enough for their bowlers as Sixers reached the target with 6 wickets in the kitty and 4 balls to spare.
