Before yesterday, the gap between the Hobart Hurricanes and the Melbourne Stars was a small one. However, a win against this very opposition has allowed the Hurricanes to increase the gap with them and enhance their place in the top four.
In the span of just a few days, Melbourne Stars will have an excellent opportunity to settle scores. As the currently fourth-placed Adelaide Strikers side suffered a loss against Sydney Sixers, a win would also help them get into the top 4. On the other hand, hurricanes could go second with a win tomorrow.
The weather was looking positive for the day of the match. There will be a little cloud cover, but no rain is forecast, which is good news.
With enough support on offer for the pacers as well, a reasonably high-scoring game beckons at the Gabba. Jack Wildermuth and Xavier Bartlett enjoyed the additional swing and bounce early on, even though the ball could skid on to the bat nicely.
The field’s dimensions should play the spinners, which should make for a successful bat-ball competition. With the pitch not going to change much during the game, both teams would want to bat first. With both sides having good depth in their batting unit, 160-170 should be equal.

The Hobart Hurricanes now look like a hazardous unit with their batting beginning to look good. On the other side, the Melbourne Stars have their way after a strong start to the tournament. On paper, we would say that both teams are on par with their batting, but bowling, the Hobart Hurricanes are far ahead. In this match, Hobart Hurricanes are more likely to emerge victorious looking at their form. Let’s bet with baji.live now to enjoy the excitement of cricket!
