An interesting match looks like materialising in Adelaide tonight when the Strikers, who have returned to excellent form recently, take on the league-leading Melbourne Stars, who are fresh off a rare loss. We take a look at Wednesday’s (22/1/2020) BBL Big Bash 2020 match which is between the Adelaide Strikers and Melbourne Stars. The Melbourne Stars go into the match as favourites but the bookies have it as a pretty even match.

The Strikers dip in form earlier this month now appears to be a memory and they are seeking a third win in succession when they step out tonight. The return of prodigal son Travis Head has clearly had an enormous effect, and the side will be confident of taking the W and ultimately keeping pressure on at the top of the table.
The Stars were potentially undone by the inclement weather and the shortening of their match with the Sixers on Monday, but a loss is a loss and they will need to regroup immediately to overcome this formed opponent. I think they will.
Tip: Melbourne Stars $1.74
