It is the halfway stage in the Big Bash League 2023 season and the matches have been pulsating and action-packed. As the tournament and its group phase matches move into the next stage, teams are looking to qualify for the final stages. 

Adelaide Strikers (STR) were left stunned in their last game when they were beaten by the Melbourne Renegades side. With this loss, the Strikers have moved to fifth in the table with three points from four games.

With two successive wins, the Melbourne Stars (STA) have leapfrogged into the fourth place in the table. It has been a great change of fortunes for the Stars after the arrival of Glenn Maxwell into the team.

STR vs STA – Likely Pitch Report

The Adelaide Oval is a great track for batting with short square boundaries on each side. Over the last few years, the ground has developed a reputation for aiding the team batting second. This stat alone should be reason enough for the skipper to win the toss to bowl first. Interestingly a few years ago Adelaide Strikers played a game on New Year’s Eve and won the game with Travis Head hitting the ball for a six.
