Bottom-dwellers Adelaide Strikers (STR) take on Hobart Hurricanes (HUR) in match 35 of the Big Bash League 2021-22 season at the Adelaide Oval on Wednesday, January 5. The match will start at 12:35 PM IST.

STR vs HUR Dream11 prediction

With just one win in eight matches, Adelaide Strikers find themselves at the bottom of the BBL points table. Since registering a 49-run win over Melbourne Renegades earlier in the campaign, the Strikers have lost each of their last six games. 

Hobart Hurricanes, on the other hand,  are fighting for a place in the playoffs. They have won three of their last five games and sit fourth in the standings with 17 points. They will be looking for a win come Wednesday in order to have some breathing space between them and those sides below them in the standings. And based on the recent form of both sides, we expect the Hurricanes to come out victorious on Wednesday.

STR vs HUR Dream11 team tips for Big Bash League 2021-22

Top tip: Best batter

HUR’s Ben McDermott has made quite an impact this season. The 27-year-old is currently the highest run-scorer of the tournament with 353 runs in a mere six innings. Given that he is batting at an average of more than 70, it comes as no surprise that he’s accumulated the most fantasy points (547) among all the players involved in the upcoming match between the teams.

Top tip: Best bowler

HUR bowler Tom Rogers has picked 14 wickets in seven matches - the second-most by any bowler this season - while maintaining an economy of just 7.03. As a result, the 27-year-old has accrued 514 fantasy points and is the most picked bowler for this contest, making him a safe choice to go with in this contest. 

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

With 416 fantasy points in eight outings, HUR’s D’Arcy Short is the best pick for an all-rounder. The 31-year-old has made it to the Dream Team in five of his eight appearances this season and has occasionally proved to be quite a coup for fantasy players.

For a wicket-keeper, Matthew Wade of HUR should be considered ahead of STR’s Harry Nielsen given the fact that the former has been slightly more consistent with the bat. As a result of this, Wade has accumulated 314 fantasy points while making it to the Dream Team on three occasions this campaign.

STR vs HUR probable playing XI

STR playing XI (probable): Jake Weatherald, Matthew Short, Harry Nielsen (wicket-keeper), Jonathan Wells, Daniel Drew, Liam Scott, Rashid Khan, George Garton, Daniel Worrall, Wes Agar, Peter Siddle (captain)

HUR playing XI (probable): Matthew Wade (captain and wicket-keeper), D’Arcy Short, Caleb Jewell, Ben McDermott, Harry Brook, Peter Handscomb, Tim David, Nathan Ellis, Tom Rogers, Sandeep Lamichhane, Joel Paris
