It’s a quick two day turnaround for the Stars following their six-wicket loss to the Scorchers at home on Wednesday night. Melbourne were severely outclassed with the bat by Scorchers medium-pacer Andrew Tye, who took home four wickets in the Perth’s second win of the season.
The Strikers have enjoyed a much longer break having played last Sunday in a six-wicket loss of their own against the Sixers. Adelaide have now slumped to 3-3 on the season with just one win at home.
Melbourne’s hopes might rest entirely on Ben Dunk in this one with both Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis serving One-Day duty. Dunk has made half a century only once this season, which doesn’t stack up well against the Strikers’ killer bowling attack.
At home Adelaide enter this one as the favourite, a scenario they are 3-3 in over the last 12-months. The Strikers, meanwhile, are 1-3 as the away underdogs, but with such little value on offer in the head-to-head market, make sure you jump on Travis Head – he makes his domestic debut after returning from Test duties.
