Adelaide Strikers players to watch

Rashid Khan
Everyone’s favourite Afghani spinner returns to the City of Churches for his fifth consecutive season in the Big Bash League. Rashid has taken 72 BBL wickets at 16.19 and will only improve on that record this summer.

Alex Carey
Once seen as the heir apparent to the keeper-batsman role in all formats for Australia, Carey suddenly finds himself on the fringe of the national setup. A strong start to the Big Bash season would put him back in the selectors’ good graces.

Peter Siddle
A few years ago, you’d have copped some raised eyebrows if you had said this guy would become one of Australia’s premier T20 bowlers. However, Siddle has lapped up the shortest format in his later years, and he looks poised for another big season with the Strikers.

Adelaide Strikers futures and tips

The Strikers are well liked in the Big Bash outright betting, with most bookies rating only the Melbourne Stars and Sydney Sixers above them. The question is how they will fare once their stars depart for international duty.

Top batsman odds
Both Alex Carey and Travis Head are in the mix for national selection this summer, so it might pay to look a little deeper into the Strikers squad for their top tournament runscorer. Jake Weatherald is a player who has threatened to catch fire for a while now, and after a busy preseason, this might be his year.

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. Even if he plays only 10 games, he’ll be there or thereabouts. Peter Siddle has been rock solid since joining the Strikers, while Wes Agar is a player on the up.

All-time Adelaide Strikers XI

  1. Alex Carey
  2. Jake Weatherald
  3. Travis Head
  4. Brad Hodge
  5. Jon Wells
  6. Johan Botha
  7. Michael Neser
  8. Rashid Khan
  9. Peter Siddle
  10. Ben Laughlin
  11. Shaun Tait

The biggest trouble with this XI is trying to pick between all the excellent wicketkeepers that have graced the Adelaide Oval in recent years. Ben Dunk had one outstanding season with the Strikers, and Tim Ludeman was a good servant for many years, but Alex Carey wins out on sheer weight of runs. The middle order was tricky to pick, while it was impossible to fit in all the fine bowlers that have played for the Strikers. Honourable mentions to Michael Klinger, Kane Richardson and Adil Rashid.
