ADS vs MLS Betting Tips

  • Matthew Short has scored 177 runs in the competition and the opener is our tip for Adelaide Strikers’ highest run scorer against Melbourne Stars. With the ball, Henry Thornton has taken 14 wickets with a strike-rate of 7.6 in this campaign and he is well worth backing as Adelaide Strikers’ top wicket taker in this game.
  • Joe Clarke is the leading run scorer in the tournament and the opener is our pick for Melbourne Stars’ highest run scorer in this match. England white-ball international Luke Wood has taken 11 wickets in the competition with 10 coming in his last four games. He is a strong choice for Melbourne Stars’ top wicket taker in this clash.
  • Henry Thornton has taken 6-38 across two games at the Adelaide Oval in this campaign. Our tip is to back him to take over 1.5 wickets in this match.

Adelaide Strikers are favorites to win

STR vs STA T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2022

Match 23 of the 2022-23 Big Bash League gets underway on Saturday evening at the Adelaide Oval as Adelaide Strikers welcome Melbourne Stars. The Strikers are in second place in the table but have lost their last two matches. The Stars are joint bottom of the league with only two points from their opening five fixtures. The game gets underway in New South Wales at 18:30 local time.

Adelaide Strikers are still competing with the teams in the top positions in spite of losing two successive games. They have plenty of talent across their team and should be able to get back to winning ways in this match.

Melbourne Stars are a bit of a mystery to cricket pundits so far in this competition. They have the top run scorer and an excellent bowling attack but are struggling. We expect them to be competitive in this match.

STR vs STA Match Toss Prediction

The team batting first at the Adelaide Oval have won 57.1% of BBL matches and it would be a big surprise if either skipper won the toss and chose to field first in this match.

STR vs STA, Adelaide Oval Pitch Report

It is a good cricket wicket at the Adelaide Oval which will see the ball come onto the bat at a good pace but will also deliver turn and movement off the wicket. A par score will be around 170.

Adelaide Weather Report

After a sunny day in Adelaide, it will be a warm New Year’s Eve for the entirety of this game. There is no danger of rain interrupting the game at any point.

Adelaide Strikers Team News & Playing 11

STR Team News

An abdominal strain for opener Jake Weatherald kept him out of the Boxing Day clash against Perth Scorchers with his replacement, Henry Hunt, making a golden duck in his first BBL appearance of the season. We expect Weatherald to return for this match.

STR Key Players

  • Matthew Short - The 27 year old opener has hit scores of 65 and 84 across the competition and has also picked up five wickets from his last two matches.
  • Chris Lynn - The vastly experienced top order batter has scored quick runs at number three in every match and will be backing himself to do so again in this game.
  • Henry Thornton - No bowler has taken more wickets than the 26 year old in BBL 2022-23 so far. He took another two wickets in the last fixture.

STR Team Form

The Strikers had an excellent start to the 2022-23 BBL and still had a 100% record before Match 13 but are now looking to avoid their third successive defeat.

Melbourne Stars Team News & Playing 11

STA Team News

Australian internationals, Marcus Stoinis and Nathan Coulter-Nile, both returned to the Melbourne Stars XI for Thursday’s defeat against Perth Scorchers. They both make the team stronger and we do not expect any changes to the team ahead of this match.

STA Key Players

  • Joe Clarke - The 26 year old keeper-batter has scored 68 runs from his last three innings after hitting a century on December 16. He continues to score consistent runs and hit three boundaries in the last game.
  • Marcus Stoinis - The batting all-rounder has been very disappointing with the bat so far in the tournament, scoring 14 runs from four matches. However, he has a strike-rate of 147.33 in IT20s and could well come good in this game.
  • Luke Wood - The left-arm pace bowler got the big wickets of Faf du Plessis and Ashton Turner against Perth Scorchers. Only Jhye Richardson and Henry Thornton have taken more wickets than him in this campaign.

STA Team Form

The Stars come into this clash after losing three matches in a row and with only one victory on the board so far in this campaign.

Who will win Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Stars T20 Match?

Two of the four highest run scorers in the tournament are on show in this match but we think it will be in the bowling departments where this game is won and lost. The Stars have the big names but it is the Strikers with the know-how on this wicket in Adelaide.

ADS vs MLS Top Team Batsmen

Matthew Short, Chris Lynn and Jake Weatherald are our batting recommendations for Adelaide Strikers. Short and Lynn have the joint top odds with the bookmakers and both have hit over 150 runs in this campaign. Weatherald has a top T20 score of 115.

We have selected Joe Clarke, Marcus Stoinis and Beau Webster as our batting picks for Melbourne Stars. With his strong form over the last two BBL seasons, it is no surprise to see Clarke as the favourite with the bookies. Webster got a duck in the last game but had hit 121 runs from his previous two innings.

ADS vs MLS Top Team Bowlers

We are backing Rashid Khan, Henry Thornton and Peter Siddle with the ball for Adelaide Strikers. Although Khan has taken only two wickets from his last three matches, he has an excellent record at the Adelaide Oval and is the bookies top choice. Captain Siddle has taken two wickets in the tournament but is always capable of a match-winning spell.

Trent Boult, Adam Zampa and Luke Wood are our bowling tips for Melbourne Stars. Boult has the top odds with Zampa not far behind, but the New Zealander has disappointed with only four wickets so far. Zampa has taken one wicket from his last three matches but will enjoy the turn on offer in Adelaide.
