It is the 20th match of the Big Bash League(BBL) 2023-24 and the tournament is almost halfway done with the new year about to begin. This will be another great contest between two sides who are eager to make a comeback after a slow start in the tournament. The Adelaide Strikers are set to host the Melbourne Stars at the Adelaide Oval on 31st December 2023. This is a much-awaited contest between number 4 and number 5, where both teams will be tested. It will be a battle between two all-rounder captains and the fans will be eager to see who comes out on top. Will Glenn Maxwell’s star shine on the occasion or will Matthew Short’s men strike hell on their opponents?

The Adelaide Strikers had a strange start to the season already with their first game being washed out, chasing down 200 in their second, losing a close game in the third and a one-sided contest in the last encounter. There is no doubt that it has been a hot and cold season for the strikers filled with a lot of emotions. They will finally want to play with more consistency and get a lot more points on the board. They will know that they will have to up their game in the next few games to secure a place in the playoffs.

If we are talking about slow starts, the Melbourne Stars have been a big example. The Stars started the season off by losing 3 games in a row in the league, but have jumped to the number 4 spot, with two consecutive victories in their last two games. It is good to see that Maxwell’s men have finally shown up on the big stage and will look to continue the winning streak. They will go into this match with a lot of confidence and will look to get closer to that playoff spot with every win they can get.

STR vs STA- Likely pitch conditions

The Adelaide Oval is arguably one of the most popular grounds in Australia and has hosted some historic matches. The surface at this ground recently has been kind of two paced which has something for batters and for bowlers. The short side boundaries has made it easier for batters to get the big hits underway, but the slightly sluggish conditions has given enough confidence to the bowlers to use their variations. So the idea of batting first on this ground might be an ideal choice, but a competitive total has to be set by the batters to have any chance of winning the game.
