ADS vs MLS prediction & Betting tips, BBL 2020-21

We’ve halfway through the tournament and every match form now on stands of utmost importance.
As the points table suggest, it’s going to be very stiff competition for the last three spots in the points table.

Adelaide Strikers with 4 wins and 5 losses are settled at the 4th spot. Melbourne Stars in the other hand have 3 wins and 4 losses but they’ve played a match less. 

It’s a very important game for both teams as a loss for either one will get them into a very tricky situation.

Read on our preview as Adelaide Strikers take on Melbourne Stars in the 36th match of the Big Bash League. The match will be played at the Adelaide Oval and is scheduled to get underway at 6:15 PM local time.

Adelaide Strikers have been very inconsistent in the tournament. They’ve lost three of their last 4 matches and almost face a must win situation to keep their chances alive in the tournament.

Their batting has been a big let down. Alex Carey and Jake Weatherald have got few runs but a collective effort is missing from the teams and that’s what hurting them badly. 

Players like Matt Renshaw and Phil Salat too got some runs against the Renegades and Strikers will hope that they can deliver a similar kind of performance in their next match.

 If they can bat well, we think that Strikers have a bowling attack that will make it very difficult for the oppositions to beat them. Harry Conway, Peter Siddle, Wes Agar, Rashid Khan, all have been very good.

The situation for Melbourne Stars is not too different. A couple of more losses and their campaign will be in jeopardy. Looking at their batting, they do look a very strong team but the performances have been missing from they key players.

No doubt, Glenn Maxwell has been brilliant. Marcus Stoinis too have got few runs but the other players have been very disappointing. Andre Fletcher, Hilton Cartwright, Nic Larkin, need to bat well if Stars wants to have a real chance of winning this match.

Stars too have a decent bowling in Billy Stanlake, Haris Rauf and Adam Zampa.

Looking at the teams, both teams have struggled mainly due to their batting. Even though Stars have a more dangerous batting, Strikers look a lot more balance unit and thus are our favourite for the match.

ADS vs MLS Toss Prediction

Adelaide is a wicket that gets slower in the second inning thus chasing might not be that easy, especially when you have quality spinners in your team.

Pitch Report 

The surface of Adelaide has always been batting friendly. The pitch will get slower as the match progresses so chasing will be the difficult of two task here.
