Hurricanes to win
The ‘Canes secured an impressive 16-run win over defending champions, the Sydney Sixers, on opening night, and are worth backing at odds-against here.
The Strikers are missing captain Travis Head and another key player in Alex Carey, who are both with the Australia Test squad, and have lost strike bowler Billy Stanlake since the last BBL.
D’Arcy Short to score over 25.5 runs
Short was dismissed for a duck in the Hurricanes’ win over the Sixers, but expect the destructive left-hander to bounce back on Sunday.
The Australia international rarely goes long without a big score in this competition – his average of 45.23 is among the best in the history of the BBL.
Rashid Khan to be Strikers’ top bowler
One key player the Strikers will not be missing on Sunday is Khan, who remains the world’s best spinner in T20 cricket.
He has taken 56 wickets in just 40 matches in the Big Bash, and will surely go close in this market on Sunday.
Riley Meredith to be Hurricanes’ top bowler
Young seamer Meredith was impressive against the Sixers, claiming two wickets for a share of this market.
As a powerplay and death bowler, he should be among the wickets for the Hurricanes all season.
