In HUR vs STA today match prediction, lets take a look at the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides.

Strengths

Hobart Hurricanes (HUR)

Who is the Best Test Batsman?

  • The arrival of Sandeep Lamichhane will add immense stability to their bowling attack.
  • Tim David is in ominous touch and giving much needed push in almost all the game for HUR in the death overs with the bat.

Melbourne Stars (STA)

  • They have as many as 3 southpaws in their middle order and can really take advantage in middle overs when Sandeep Lamichhane is in operation.

Weaknesses

Hobart Hurricanes (HUR)

  • In the absence of James Falukner, their lower order poses a weak image and a lot will depend on Tim David to provide impetus in slog overs.
  • D Arcy Short has been finding ways to get out which is slowly turning out to be a bit of a concern for them as they are not getting steady starts at the top of the order.

Melbourne Stars (STA)

  • Andre Fletcher at the top is a walking wicket.
  • The absence of Adam Zampa will hurt them.

HUR vs STA dream11 team prediction tips

In HUR vs STA dream11 prediction, lets bring out the players from both the sides who can fetch points in fantasy leagues

Ben McDermott: He has 155 runs in 4 games. He is in good form. He will be hoping to hit some runs and he is going through a lean patch by his standards. He is also opening the batting and one cannot leave him out.

Dawid Malan: The #1 batsman showed good signs in the previous game against Heat. He was en route to a big score before getting out for 39. He can be a quality pick as well for small leagues. One can also gamble by captaining him in grand leagues.

Glenn Maxwell: The big show would be disappointed to miss out on his form in the last 2 games. He had a great opportunity to score some big runs when his team was under pressure against Sydney Thunder and he would be gutted on missing out an opportunity.

Sandeep Lamichhane: The Nepal leggie will play his first game of the season and his quality of the leg spin will too much for the Australian domestic batters. He walks straight into any fantasy team and will be a valuable pick.

Other picks: Marcus Stoinis, D Arcy Short, Tim David and Nathan Ellis are all good picks.

Today HUR vs STA match score: Team batting first will aim to score around 180

Today match pitch report: The wicket will be a good batting deck and quality spinners can find assistance in the wicket.

Who won yesterday game: THU won the game by 7 runs against REN.
