Hobart Hurricanes (HUR) will take on Adelaide Strikers (STR) in match 22 of Big Bash League 2021-22 at the Bellerive Oval, Hobart on Monday, December 27.

HUR vs STR Dream11 prediction

Adelaide Strikers face Hobart Hurricanes in a crucial game on Monday. The Strikers have had a dismal season so far with just a solitary win from five games. They desperately need to win this game to stay in the playoffs hunt. 

Meanwhile, Hobart Hurricanes with two wins from five matches have had an underwhelming season so far. With the tournament heading towards the business end, Matthew Wade and Co. will look to get a few wins under their belt and solidify their position in the standings. 

The two sides are evenly matched on paper although, given the recent form, Hobart Hurricanes hold a slender advantage over their opponents.
