The Stars were swept aside by the Adelaide Strikers on Friday night, their first blow since the departure of the Big Show, Stoinis and Handscomb for international duties. This is a defining moment in BBL|08 for Stephen Fleming’s side, with many expecting them to fold in the absence of key players.
If Aaron Finch was still in the Australian Test team, the Hurricanes would still be undefeated. A gap in the fixture between the explosive T20 batsman being dropped from the Test team and joining the ODI squad allowed Finch to play a single game for the Renegades…and he made it count.
Tip: Hobart Hurricanes at $1.52
Value BET: Ben Dunk to be the Top Runscorer at $3.75
