On this ground, the ball of fast bowlers comes fast due to which Due to this, batsmen may face difficulty in playing the game in the beginning.
What to expect:
Hobart Hurricanes: After losing their first two games, Hobart Hurricanes secured their season’s first win in their previous match against Melbourne Renegades. The Hurricanes chased down a target of 184 with one over to spare and six wickets remaining.
Matthew Wade (82 off 50 balls) led the chase brilliantly, along with Macalister Wright (63 off 36 balls). Both the batters are important elements of Hobart’s top-order and are expected to continue their good form.
Tim David’s poor performance has hurt the team. The hard-hitting finisher has managed just 25 runs so far. However, he is too good a batter to keep missing out on opportunities, and this might just be his game.
Nathan Ellis and Riley Meredith are Hobart’s main bowlers this season and have looked in good rhythm, picking up 3 and 2 wickets each so far.
Chris Jordan has gone at an economy of over 10, and that’s something the team needs to seriously look at.
Hobart Hurricanes Key Players
- Matthew Wade – The 36-year-old has only played T20I and no ODI or Test cricket over the last two years. However, he is still a force at BBL level as shown against Melbourne Renegades in BBL 2023.
- Macalister Wright – The right-hander came in for his first appearance of the season in Match 13 and after scoring 63 runs from 36 balls he is well deserving of a good run in the side.
- Nathan Ellis – The skipper had come under fire for some of his individual performances and also those of his team. However, after dismissing Joe Clarke and Aaron Finch in the last game he should be full of confidence.
- Patrick Dooley – The left-arm wrist spinner took two wickets in two balls in the last match and although this venue is not renowned for assisting the spinners, he could still cause problems.
Probable XI: Matthew Wade(w), Caleb Jewell, Macalister Wright, Sam Hain, Tim David, Corey Anderson, Nikhil Chaudhary, Chris Jordan, Patrick Dooley, Nathan Ellis(c), Riley Meredith

Melbourne Stars: Melbourne Stars too are coming off their season’s first win. They had suffered three defeats on the trot before taking down Sydney Sixers by four wickets on Boxing Day in a chase of 155.
Hilton Cartwright has been the standout performer for the Stars this season, scoring 126 runs in 4 innings at an average of 42 and a strike rate of 168. In the case against the Sixers, it was his unbeaten 47 off 40 balls that helped the team reach the line securely.
Beau Webster (98 runs in 3 innings at an average of 32.66 and a strike rate of 119.51) continues to be the team’s most reliable batter, but Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis are struggling for runs. If these two experienced batters get going, the Stars will be hard to stop.
Melbourne Stars Key Players
- Beau Webster – The all-rounder is having his most impressive BBL campaign after already influencing matches with both bat and ball.
- Glenn Maxwell – The skipper immediately injected aggression into the innings on Boxing Day with a quick-fire 12 runs from 8 balls. Expect another fast-scoring innings in this match.
- Haris Rauf – The Pakistan international right-arm pace bowler produced his best display of the season in the last game and should enjoy the surface in Hobart.
- Usama Mir – Like his spin bowling counterpart in the opposition, Usama would not be a natural fit on this pitch but he will back himself after taking 3/19 against the Sixers.
Probable XI: Thomas Rogers, Sam Harper(w), Beau Webster, Glenn Maxwell(c), Marcus Stoinis, Hilton Cartwright, Imad Wasim, Jonathan Merlo, Usama Mir, Haris Rauf, Joel Paris
Melbourne Stars Squad: Thomas Rogers, Sam Harper(w), Beau Webster, Glenn Maxwell(c), Marcus Stoinis, Hilton Cartwright, Imad Wasim, Jonathan Merlo, Usama Mir, Haris Rauf, Joel Paris, Nick Larkin, Mark Steketee, Corey Rocchiccioli

Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Stars Match Prediction
Both the Hurricanes and the Stars, who come into this game in sixth and seventh, will be eyeing up the mid-table spots ahead of this game and will have the knowledge that they need to string two or three wins together to give themselves a real chance of progression. With Haris Rauf and Glenn Maxwell in their side, the Stars can not be ruled out but we like the look of Hobart Hurricanes’ batting line-up and we are backing them to win.

Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Stars Match Both Team Top Batsmen
Hobart Hurricanes our batting picks are Matthew Wade, Ben McDermott, and Macalister Wright. Wade took the Player of the Match Award in the last game at this venue after striking nine fours and three sixes in an impressive innings. McDermott should come back into the team at the top of the order and he has a fine BBL record over recent seasons.
Our batting tips are Beau Webster, Hilton Cartwright, and Glenn Maxwell for the Melbourne Stars. Although you have to go back to 2017 to find the last time he played for Australia, Cartwright is a top-level player and he has already made four scores between 22 and 47 not out in this campaign. Maxwell is world-renowned for his match-winning ability and has hit 9280 T20 runs in his career.
Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Stars Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
Riley Meredith, Nathan Ellis, and Patrick Dooely for Hobart Hurricanes. Meredith has plenty of experience not just in the BBL but in other T20 leagues across the globe and picked up the wicket of in-form Neil Maddinson in the last game. Ellis had taken only 1 wicket from his opening two matches but put in his best display in the win over the Renegades.
With the ball, Usama Mir, Marcus Stoinis, and Haris Rauf are our choices for the Melbourne Stars. All-rounder Stoinis can be a real leader with the ball and the Australian international got the first wicket on the way to the win over Sydney Sixers. Rauf will get movement from the wicket in Hobart and boasts a strong T20 strike rate of 16.4 from almost 3900 deliveries.
