Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Stars Predictions


The Hobart Hurricanes have had a brilliant start to the BBL season and have winning momentum. The Melbourne Stars are struggling to get their star players performing at a consistent level so I fancy a Hurricanes win at home.

  • Hobart Hurricanes’ Dawid Malan scored 39 runs in his last match.
  • Hobart Hurricanes have won 4 of their 6 BLL matches.
  • Melbourne Stars’ Marcus Stoinis top scored in his last match.
  • Melbourne Stars have lost their last 2 BBL matches.

Head to Head


The Melbourne Stars have won three of their last five matches against the Hobart Hurricanes. Those three wins for the Stars have come in their last three matches.

Last time they met the Melbourne Stars won by four runs on the D/L method in the 2019/2020 Big Bash.

Hobart Hurricanes Form


The Hobart Hurricanes have had a strong start to their season with four wins from their opening six matches. They are currently in third place.

Last time out the Hurricanes beat the Brisbane heat by 1 run. Dawid Malan top scored with 39 runs in his first match while Tim David added 36 in a total of 150.

The bowling started off well as Riley Meredith took 3-21 in his four overs. The game looked won by the Heat fought back late on to come within a run of securing a super over. 

Hobart Hurricanes Injuries & Team News


The Hobart Hurricanes should stick with the winning combination. The addition of Dawid Malan to their side is massive, now D’Arcy Short just needs to find his form.

Colin Ingram has been consistent for the Hurricanes this season but he will be departing the squad shortly.

Melbourne Stars Form


After a superb start to the season the Melbourne Stars have taken a huge dip in form. They won their opening two matches but have lost their last two with another match rained out.

The Stars bowlers struggled in their last match against the Sydney Thunder. The Thunder scored a mammoth 219 runs in Canberra after electing to bat first. Adam Zampa was the pick of the Stars bowlers, taking 4-49 but still going at over 12 an over.

Marcus Stoinis top scored with 27 runs in the run chase. The Melbourne Stars never looked like getting anywhere near the 219 total and were bowled out for 144, losing by 75 runs.

Melbourne Stars Injuries & Team News


The Melbourne Stars are more than likely to stick with the same team but the batting order could change. Too many batsmen are failing to find form.

Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell are the obvious danger players, and if they can find their feet the Stars could well go on a winning run.
