Only 10 matches remain in the Big Bash League season, meaning it’s now or never for the franchises on the bottom half of the ladder.

The Adelaide Strikers find themselves in a tricky position, needing to win all their remaining matches in order to finish fourth, which would see them qualify for the finals.

On the flip-side, the Hurricanes sit comfortably on top of the ladder, after winning nine of their 11 matches, two ahead of the next best teams.

It was less than 10 days ago when the Hurricanes managed to defeat the Strikers without losing a single wicket in one of the great performances of the season so far.

Matthew Wade was the star that day, posting a huge total of 84no off 49 balls. D’Arcy Short was Wade’s partner in crime on the day, with a hefty total of 73no.

The Strikers have one of the best bowling line-ups in the competition, but they seem to struggle with the bat.

Knowing how talented the Hurricanes’ opener is, it’s hard to go past Matthew Wade for Man of the Match.

Wade has an elite talent for getting bat on ball, especially against the better bowlers in the competition, where most players will fall short.

Another string to Wade’s bow is his timing of shots and shot selection.

Contrary to Glenn Maxwell, Wade only hits the ball when the opportunity is there, diverging from the nervous opener stereotype.

You rarely see Wade miss or edge the ball, mainly due to of all the Shield Cricket and T20 experience the keeper has accumulated.

Hurricanes vs. Strikers betting predictions

Past results and current form are the two factors that determine most BBL matches, but an upset is always in the conversation.

This match appears to be decided already. The Strikers are at long odds and with good reason.

The Strikers have only won four matches for the season and have already lost to the Hurricanes before, leaving them with little support in their corner.

Even the bookies are pointing towards the Canes, as the $1.60 odds are some of the lowest you can find for a BBL match, as the odds normally stay within the $1.75 bracket for the favourite.

Trust in the batting capabilities of the Hobart openers and even the bowling line up of Jofra Archer and spinner Clive Rose.
