The Big Bash League, 2014-15, is picking its rhythm after initial matches where unexpected results are visible with new upcoming teams. The finalists of the previous year, Perth Scorchers and Hobart Hurricanes have lost one game each out of two whereas the no.7 unit on the points table, Adelaide Strikers, are currently holding the second spot with two consecutive wins. Hobart Hurricanes will try their luck against Adelaide Strikers in their next meeting which is scheduled on the last day of the 2014.
Tim Ludeman has registered over a hundred runs in two games for Adelaide Strikers whereas Craig Simmons along with Brad Hodge have scored forty plus and rest of their batsmen have yet to contribute. Kane Richardson is the most deadly bowler who is getting able support from Ben Laughlin, Johan Botha and Adam Zampa.
George Bailey batted excellently by smashing 71 off 44 balls for Hobart Hurricanes in the previous match vs. Sydney Sixers and Tim Paine scored 36 runs. Jonathan Wells, Ben Dunk and Darren Sammy made their presence felt with the willow in their first game but they need attacking batting from Alex Hales. Joe Mennie, Ben Hilfenhaus, Cameron Boyce and Xavier Doherty are doing justice with the ball.
