Adelaide Strikers vs Hobart Hurricanes – Pitch Report
The surface at the Melbourne Cricket Ground is a batting-friendly wicket and is expected to assist the batters hugely in both innings. There is very little help on offer for the pacers early on, and the spinners will have to bowl tight lengths to fetch any purchase. Expect to see both teams pack in some heavy hitters in their lineup for this game.

Adelaide Strikers vs Hobart Hurricanes – Dream11 Top Picks
Matthew Short comes into this fixture with a good run of form. He has been immense for the Adelaide Strikers this season, having scored 359 runs and sitting second in the team’s top scorers list. The team will expect him to do some heavy hitting in order to get them across the line.
One of the players that we have persisted with this season, in our fantasy lineup, is Peter Siddle. He has been a vital part of the Adelaide Strikers and also their leading wicket-taker with 23 scalps to his name this season. We expect him to be front and center in terms of the bowling attack. He can also be handy with the bat at times, so he will be a good pick for your fantasy lineup.
When it comes to the Hobart Hurricanes, you cannot ignore the contributions of D’Arcy Short, both with the bat and ball. The All-Rounder has been one of Hobart’s best players this season, scoring 388 runs in 14 matches and scalping 5 wickets in the 11 matches where he was put into bowl. We will recommend his name for your fantasy lineup as there are not many people who can strike the ball as Short can.
The right-hand batsman has been a standout performer for the Hurricanes this season with a total of 571 runs scored in 12 innings. He is capable of producing big knocks for his team, and they will want him to do just that in the Eliminator.
