The Adelaide Strikers are out of contention for this year’s Big Bash title, but they should be too good for the Scorchers at home this afternoon. Their win over the league-leading Hurricanes two games back was easily their best performance of the season, but it was all too little, too late. The Scorchers have been next to terrible for the entire season and this will be another big ask.
A great opportunity for both City and Adelaide to take potentially vital points tonight, but the away side look over the odds at their current price in head-to-head betting. It’s been a lean few weeks for City, while Adelaide pulled off the comeback of the season when they overturned a 3-goal deficit to beat Brisbane last weekend. The Reds leapfrogged City into the top four and can consolidate their position by winning this.
