The League stage of the Big Bash League(BBL) 2023-24 is almost coming to an end, but the race to the playoffs has not ended yet and match 31 can be a decider for both these teams. It is another big game for both sides at the business end of the tournament as the Adelaide Strikers and the Hobart Hurricanes go head to head at the Adelaide Oval to fight to stay alive in the tournament. The Strikers will be the confident side coming from a big win and will be playing at home once again and the Hobart Hurricanes will want to prove themselves after a heartbreaking loss at the Gabba. Only time will tell whether the Hurricanes will finally roar on the day or will the Strikers strike fear in their hearts in this potential thriller for survival.

The Adelaide Strikers playoff chances are still looking tough, but not impossible. They only have 5 points on the board with 2 wins, 4 losses and 1 no result in their 7 games and will have to win all their matches to have some chance to make it to the playoffs. The win against the Perth Scorchers will give them some confidence, but they still have a lot of work to do to stay alive in the tournament. With another game at home, Matthew Short and his men will look to get back to winning ways and show the Hurricanes that they're still in the game.

The Hobart Hurricanes season has been a mixed bag of emotions, with some great and some poor performances. However, this side can still not be counted out due to the exciting game-changing players they have in their ranks. They are currently 5th on the board with 3 wins and 4 losses out of the 7 games they have played. They will look to come back stronger after a heartbreaking 1-run loss against the Brisbane Heat, which was one of the best games of the season so far. This is still a make-or-break match for them since a win in this match will put them closer to the playoffs and knock another team out of the race.

STR vs HUR - Likely pitch conditions

We all know the Adelaide Oval has been one of the most unpredictable surfaces in the league so far due to the sluggish nature of the pitch and the short side boundaries. However, looking at the last few games the pitch did get better as the game progressed which led to totals being chased down easily. However the last game the side was restricted to a chaseable total and if that’s the case it is going to be very tough for the team batting second to defend. This is the perfect two-paced wicket for a perfect contest between two teams who want to stay in the race to the playoffs.
