Hobart Hurricanes will travel to Melbourne to clash against the Melbourne Stars in their Big Bash campaign at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Wednesday, Jan. 6, starting 7.10 PM local time.
Luke Wright has already scored a century in this season but the Stars haven’t quite played upto their standards given the strength of their team. As per the Betting Betfair reports, one reason for their slump in the Big Bash table could be their batting.
Glen Maxwell, Hussey as well as Pietersen haven’t produced match winning performances and their bowlers too have been expensive.
The Hobart Hurricanes have been consistent with their form so far but the horrendous five-wicket defeat against the Melbourne Renegades might have taken a bit off their confidence. The Renegades beat the Hurricanes with six overs to spare back on Monday.
The MCG wicket produces even bounce and pace. All games played in this season on the MCG wickets have gone down to the wire. We should expect a last over finish for the upcoming clash too.
As per Cric Buzz, James Faulkner and Maxwell will be playing their last match before they leave for National duty. Both of them have been selected for the series against India.
