Spectators are in a for a treat. They will see the most consistent team battle against the most successful team in Big Bash Cricket. So which team do you think will win the epic contest? Nonetheless, the first week of January brings you the very best from Adelaide.

Adelaide Strikers will host the Perth Scorchers in their own backyard at the Adelaide Oval on Tuesday, Jan. 5, starting 7.10 PM local time and 8.40 AM GMT.

Adelaide have been brilliant out there in the field, and this Brad Hodge’s team looks very consistent. They have depth in their batting line up as Mahela Jayawardene has kept the middle order steady.

As per the Betting Betfair reports, “the Strikers will need better starts from Craig Simmons and Tim Ludeman who have both been explosive in previous tournaments.” However, their bowling looks somewhat out of touch as Richardson has been expensive.

Well, when you are playing Perth Scorchers, you definitely need all the bit of luck you can gather. The most successful franchise is traveling to Adelaide and they continue to impress despite the big names. As per the ESPN Cric Info reports, Shaun Marsh’s exclusion from the Australian National Team has definitely helped the Scorchers.

The Adelaide oval has a fairly decent track and pace will be the key. Stay tuned for some high voltage action.
