Adelaide Strikers players to watch

Rashid Khan BBL betting newsRashid Khan – Everyone’s favourite Afghani spinner returns to the City of Churches for his third consecutive season in the Big Bash League. Rashid has taken 37 BBL wickets at 16.03 and will only improve on that record this summer.

Phil Salt – What do we know about Adelaide’s other overseas import? Born in Wales and groomed in Sussex, Salt is an aggressive right-handed batsman who will be keen to raise his international profile with some big knocks in the BBL.

Cameron White – After helping the Melbourne Renegades to their maiden title last summer, White now joins his third BBL franchise. The 36-year-old Victorian’s class and experience will prove invaluable when Adelaide’s star players are away on international duty.

Adelaide Strikers futures and tips

There are mixed views on whether the Strikers can go deep again this year. Some bookies have them as joint favourites in Big Bash outright betting, while others have them back towards in the middle of a tightly packed market. Wait until the final squads are announced before pulling the trigger on any Strikers futures.

Top batsman odds

With Travis Head likely to be away on international duty for much of the summer, look for Alex Carey and Jake Weatherald to star at the top of the order. Carey will shoot off to India in January, leaving Weatherald to steer the Strikers towards finals.

Top bowler betting

Rashid Khan has been nothing short of brilliant since joining the Strikers two summers ago. Another big year from the Afghani spinner – who is also very handy with the bat – will put Adelaide right in the mix again.

All-time Adelaide Strikers XI

1. Alex Carey
2. Michael Klinger
3. Mahela Jayawardene
4. Brad Hodge
5. Travis Head
6. Johan Botha
7. Tim Ludeman
8. Michael Neser
9. Rashid Khan
10. Ben Laughlin
11. Shaun Tait

The biggest trouble with this XI is trying to fit in all the excellent wicketkeepers that have graced the Adelaide Oval in recent years. Ben Dunk had one outstanding season with the Strikers, but Alex Carey and Tim Ludeman win out for their sustained quality over several seasons. The rest of the side more or less picks itself.
