Match 38 of the WBBL will see the Hobart Hurricanes and Adelaide Strikers locking horns at the Karen Rolton Oval, Adelaide. Both sides are coming into the fixture with impressive wins in their previous outings.
Hobart Hurricanes were in complete control of the contest against the Melbourne Renegades thanks to a sensational bowling performance by spinner Molly Strano, who scalped four wickets and handed an edge to the side. Later on, the onus was on the batters to chase 81, which the side rightfully did in under 11 overs.
On the other hand, Adelaide won a low-scoring contest against the Perth Scorchers in the last outing. Opener Deandra Dottin was the lone warrior in the batting line-up as she scored 68 off 51 balls that included as many as nine fours and a maximum.
The Strikers currently stand third on the table with 12 points, having played nine games whereas, Hobart have played eight and have nine points under their belt, standing fifth in the points table. The match could go either way for the two sides as both seem in terrific form considering their recent outing.

Probable Top Performers from HB-W vs AS-W
Probable best batter: Deandra Dottin
The Strikers’ opener Deandra Dottin smashed 68 off just 51 balls at a strike rate of 133.33 that helped the side chase down the 119 total in mere 16 overs against Perth Scorchers. The batter has the momentum on her side and she will look to make the most of it. Moreover, with the quick outfield and the ground at Adelaide, Dottin could get another big score if she gets going.
Probable best bowler: Molly Strano
Molly Strano displayed sheer dominance against the Melbourne Renegades as the spinner spearheaded Hobart’s bowling attack and dismantled the Renegades for just 80 runs. She scalped four wickets and gave away just 16 runs in four overs that made her return to the top of the all-time WBBL wicket-taking list with a career tally of 131. Undoubtedly, the batters will find it tricky to play her, who appears to be lethal with the ball.
