Upon winning the toss, the Adelaide Strikers chose to bat first against the Hobart Hurricanes. Strikers have had a poor record in the current BBL season, having won only 1 out of 5 games. To win this game, they must struggle much harder to finish the action on a strong note. Meanwhile, the Strikers had a decent start, but have also lost one of their opening batsmen, Matthew Short, for only 2 runs on facing only 3 deliveries. Furthermore, Jake Weatherald 51* off 41, and Matt Renshaw 63* off 40 were seemed tough for the opponents with some powerful knocks from their bats.
The Hurricanes, on the other hand, have a reasonable track with 2 victories in 5 games. Meanwhile, Thomas Rogers made the first breakthrough for the Hurricanes, giving his team a lift.
