Cricket Free Tips | BBL 2021/22, Match 43: Melbourne Stars vs Adelaide Strikers

The Melbourne Stars will meet the Adelaide Strikers on Monday at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Melbourne Stars and Adelaide Strikers are both in the bottom half of the table; therefore, this is a must-win game for both teams. Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the Stars’ previous match was cancelled.

On the other hand, Adelaide Strikers are in serious trouble in this tournament, having lost six games in a row. They won the match against the Hobart Hurricanes by chasing down a 127-run target, but they need to win all the remaining games to advance in the standings. As a result, we may expect an exciting match at the MCG.

 

Weather
As the cloud cover rises, the temperature will decrease from the high 20s to the low 20s during this match.

 

Pitch
The Melbourne Cricket Ground’s surface is a decent cricketing surface. The batters should benefit from the track since they will play their shots after a careful initial passage of play.

The pacers must provide timely breakthroughs for their team and dictate terms on this surface. On this surface, teams will try to win the toss and pursue.
