183/5 (20)

Melbourne Stars won by 38 runs

MLS vs HBH Betting Tips

  • Nick Larkin is playing in his sixth BBL and is a consistent run scorer. He is our tip for Melbourne Stars’ highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Trent Boult made his debut in the tournament on Tuesday and recorded figures of 2-21. He is well worth backing as Melbourne Stars’ top wicket taker against Hobart Hurricanes.
  • Ben McDermott scored 577 runs at an average of 48.08 in the 2021-22 BBL and the opener is our pick for Hobart Hurricanes’ highest run scorer in this game. Riley Meredith took 16 wickets across last year’s competition and is a strike bowler. He is a strong choice for Hobart Hurricanes’ top wicket taker against Melbourne Stars.
  • After a very impressive tournament last year, we recommend Ben McDermott to hit over 35.5 runs in this fixture.

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

Match 4 of the 2022-23 Big Bash League sees Melbourne Stars and Hobart Hurricanes go head to head on Friday evening at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The Stars lost their first game of this season by one wicket on Tuesday. Hobart Hurricanes reached the play-offs before being knocked out in the Eliminator last year. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway at 17:05 local time.

It was only a small wicket-keeping error which prevented Melbourne Stars’ opener going to a Super Over. If they bowl with the same accuracy, they will certainly be competitive in this game.

Hobart Hurricanes had no problem making big totals last year but will need more from their bowlers in this campaign. If the bowlers can deliver then they should get off to a winning start in this match.

STA vs HUR Match Toss Prediction

Teams batting first have a stronger record at the MCG in the BBL and we predict that both skippers will want to bat first in this game.

STA vs HUR, Melbourne Cricket Ground Pitch Report

There is normally something for both the quick and spin bowlers at the MCG. The pitch has got quicker in recent years which is good news for the stroke making batters.

Melbourne Stars Team News & Playing 11

STA Team News

After losing by only one wicket in their season opener to Sydney Thunder on Tuesday, we anticipate only one enforced change for Melbourne Stars ahead of this game. Experienced batter Joe Burns has a hamstring injury and is likely to be replaced by Campbell Kellaway who will make his BBL debut.

STA Key Players

  • Nick Larkin - The experienced right-handed top order batter looked in good form in the opening match. He has a top score of 83 not out in the BBL.
  • Marcus Stoinis - The batting all-rounder began the tournament with a golden duck but, with Joe Burns out of the side, Stoinis’ big hitting will be needed in this match.
  • Trent Boult - The New Zealander enjoyed his first BBL experience although he ended up on the losing side. He dismissed Matthew Gilkes and Rilee Rossouw in the first over and will be looking to do something similar here.

STA Team Form

The Stars lost their opening game of this season but won three of their last four matches last year.

Hobart Hurricanes Team News & Playing 11

HUR Team News

We expect to see at least four debuts for Hobart Hurricanes with Asif Ali, Paddy Dooley, Shadab Khan and Jimmy Neesham all in line to make their first appearance. The Hurricanes made a poor start to last year’s tournament and will be keen to get a win in their opening game.

HUR Key Players

  • Ben McDermott - The 28 year old right-hander hit two centuries and finished as the tournament leading run scorer in the 2021-22 BBL season. He will be eager to get this season up and running.
  • D’Arcy Short - After hitting 444 runs in last year’s BBL campaign, Short will be looking forward to getting his latest campaign underway. Expect him to keep the scoreboard moving without taking risks in this match.
  • Riley Meredith - The pace bowler has been in good form across other formats in recent weeks. He has taken 59 BBL wickets from 45 games since making his debut in the 2017-18 tournament.

HUR Team Form

Hobart Hurricanes ended last season’s tournament with successive defeats.

Who will win Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes T20 Match?

The injury to Joe Burns, added to Glenn Maxwell’s absence through injury, makes Melbourne Stars’ batting look like it’s lacking depth. Hobart Hurricanes have a very strong batting line-up and we think this will be crucial.

MLS vs HBH Top Team Batsmen

We are backing Joe Clarke, Marcus Stoinis and Nick Larkin with the bat for Melbourne Stars. Clarke had an exceptional BBL last year and the bookmakers are backing him to be the Stars’ highest run scorer in this game. Stoinis has a top score of 147 not out in the BBL.

Ben McDermott, D’Arcy Short and Matthew Wade are our batting tips for Hobart Hurricanes. After dominating the bowling attacks last year, the bookies are backing McDermott to be the batter to watch in this match. Wade has been in excellent international batting form over the last few months in white ball cricket

MLS vs HBH Top Team Bowlers

Trent Boult, Adam Zampa and Nathan Coulter-Nile are our bowling picks for Melbourne Stars. After his impressive BBL debut in the opening game, Boult has the top odds with the bookies. Coulter-Nile began the campaign with strong figures of 3-19 from four overs on Tuesday.

We recommend Nathan Ellis, Shadab Khan and Riley Meredith with the ball for Hobart Hurricanes. Ellis took 11 wickets from eight games last year and the bookmakers expect him to be dangerous on this pitch. Khan is a fine bowling all-rounder who will find turn on any surface.
