Matt Short hit 34 from 28 balls in the win over Perth Scorchers and the opener is our pick for Adelaide Strikers’ highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Fawad Ahmed took 3-30 on Friday and is a strong choice for Adelaide Strikers’ top wicket taker against Melbourne Stars.
Glenn Maxwell struck 68 not out from 45 balls in the Melbourne derby on Thursday and is well worth backing as Melbourne Stars’ highest run scorer against Adelaide Strikers. Spinner Qais Ahmad took 2-15 against Melbourne Renegades and is our tip for Melbourne Stars’ top wicket taker in this game.
We expect to see Glenn Maxwell in the runs again in this game. He is our prediction for the Player of the Match Award.
