Hobart Hurricanes are back on the winning track and have consolidated their position at the top of the points table with nine wins from 11 matches.

They cantered home in their last game against Brisbane Heat with D'Arcy Short leading the way in what was a one-sided encounter.

When Hobart Hurricanes met Adelaide Strikers the last time in this season, the former came out victorious by 10 wickets, propelled by openers D'Arcy Short and Matthew Wade. To add to that, the Strikers have been struggling with their batting form and have managed scores of 123 and 124 in their last two matches.

The team was forced to change their playing XI in the last game after Johan Botha announced his sudden retirement. Pacer Riley Meredith, who was dropped in the last match, is expected to return for this encounter. Openers D'Arcy Short and Matthew Wade have made a real impact in this tournament. While Short has scored well over 500 runs, Wade is on the verge of 400.

They also have the experience of George Bailey in the middle order. James Faulkner has stepped up his game in the last four matches and has picked up 8 wickets, taking his total tally to 18.

Although Peter Siddle returned for the last game for Adelaide Strikers, he has been recalled by the Australian Test team. Colin Ingram has been the most successful batsman for the Strikers and is the only one to cross the 300-run mark in the team.

While Jack Weatherald has been out of form lately, Alex Carey is expected to score some quickfire runs at the top of the order. Rashid Khan and Billy Stanlake remain their top bowlers.
