Melbourne Stars would be looking for their first win of Big Bash 2018-19 when they meet Hobart Hurricanes at Bellerive Oval on Monday. The Stars lost their tournament opener, a rain-curtailed game, to Sydney Thunder on Friday. The game was shortened to 8 overs due to rain and they were chasing 90 in 8 overs (DLS score) in reply to Thunder’s 181/5 (20 overs). The asked target was too much for them as they could only manage 74 after 8 overs. They would want to bowl tight and bat better to get back on winning way.
Hobart Hurricanes, on the other hand, commenced their BBL campaign with a 15-run win over Brisbane Heat on Saturday. It was a fine bowling performance from the Hurricanes as they defended a below-par total of 159/6. They got away with the mediocre batting performance in the last game but would want to do better here.
