STR vs HUR Dream11 Prediction: In spite of a 14-run defeat in the recent match against the Brisbane Heat, Hobart Hurricanes will look to stay afloat in the top four rankings by taking on the Adelaide Strikers in their second duel of the season. The Matthew Wade-led side had the upper hand in their previous match against the Strikers that witnessed opener Ben McDermott smash a 60-ball 110* to chase 176 runs at the Bellerive Oval. The Hurricanes have managed four wins and as many losses and look pretty confident heading into the second half of the BBL 11. On the other hand, it has been a sour journey so far for the Adelaide Strikers, who are now placed at the bottom of BLL 11 rankings, having suffered 7 defeats in 8 matches, including a 14-run loss to Sydney Thunder in their previous outing. They still can make the playoffs, provided they manage to stitch wins in the remaining six matches, starting from the forthcoming game at the Adelaide Oval.

Matt Renshaw stats in T20
Renshaw has churned runs on a regular basis in the limited opportunities received in the BBL 11. The southpaw has scored 30-runs or more in the last three matches, including a 41-ball 63 against the Hurricanes, which comprised a tally of 9 fours. Renshaw, once set, can offer a decent amount of points through his points to the fantasy total.
Rashid Khan stats in T20
The Afghan leg-spinner is once again at his lethal best in the tournament. He has already taken 11 scalps while averaging 20.0 and an economy rate of 6.87. Rashid’s an asset in this format of the game and especially the form he’s in, one could consider him as a captain or vice-captain option in the fantasy line-up.

Matthew Wade stats in T20
There’s a good possibility that the Hurricanes’ skipper could come up with a stellar show against the Strikers, considering he averages a whopping 71.40 in 9 innings that he has faced the latter, including a hundred and two fifties. Also, he can be vital with his wicket-keeping abilities that could offer points in the fantasy line-up.
Thomas Rogers stats in T20
The right-arm medium pacer is atop the bowling charts in terms of most wickets this season (14) while averaging a miserly 13.07. He has been reaping wickets in the powerplay and middle-overs and taking into account the rate at which he’s striking the blows, Rogers makes a very strong case as a captain or vice-captain for the upcoming matchup.
The Hurricanes have a lot settled in their camp and all they need at the moment is their skipper Matthew Wade leading from the front. Meanwhile, the Adelaide Strikers haven’t had any harmonious performances with the willow, which has been their main cause of defeat this season. There’s a good chance that Strikers’ line-up might crumble at the hands of the Hurricanes’ bowling line-up . As per STR vs HUR today match prediction and Adelaide Strikers vs Hobart Hurricanes cricket betting tips, Hobart Hurricanes are the favourites for this match.
