Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes Predictions


The Hobart Hurricanes recently beat the Stars and are flying high in the BBL. I'm looking at a Hurricanes win with Dawid Malan to score big runs again in Hobart.

  • Melbourne Stars’ Glenn Maxwell has scored 70+ runs in 2 of his last 3 matches.
  • Melbourne Stars have lost their last 3 completed matches.
  • Hobart Hurricanes’ Dawid Malan has scored 39 & 75 runs in his last 2 matches.
  • Hobart Hurricanes beat the Melbourne Stars in their last match.
  • Hobart Hurricanes have won 5 of their last 7 matches.

Head to Head


Melbourne Stars have won three of their last five matches against the Hobart Hurricanes. In their last match it was the Hurricanes who won by 21 runs just a couple of days ago.

Melbourne Stars Form


After winning their opening two Big Bash matches of the season the Melbourne Stars have lost their last three and had one rained out. They find themselves fifth on the table and in need of results soon if they have any hope of catching the top three.

The Stars last match was also against the Hobart Hurricanes in Hobart. The Hurricanes batted first, scoring 164 runs which was a par total for the pitch. Billy Stanlake was the pick of the bowlers taking 3-25.

In response Glenn Maxwell batted superbly, scoring 70 off 37 balls but no other batsmen supported him. Once Maxwell was dismissed the Stars hopes went with him as they ended on 143-9, losing by 21 runs.

Melbourne Stars Injuries & Team News


Glenn Maxwell has been a shining light this season but he needs more runs from Ben Dunk and Marcus Stoinis. Nic Maddinson is a fitness doubt after twisting his ankle in the last game.

Hobart Hurricanes Form


The Hobart Hurricanes have won five of their seven matches and sit third in the BBL table. They will be looking to continue their momentum through the second half of the season to ensure they finish in the top three.

In their last match the Hurricanes batted well for 164 runs against the Melbourne Stars in Hobart. Dawid Malan top scored with 75 off 56 balls while Ben McDermott added 31 and Colin Ingram 26 runs.

Scott Boland bowled superbly, taking 3-22 in four overs for the Hurricanes. Nathan Ellis was just as good with figures of 2-11 in four overs.

The Hurricanes restricted the Stars to 143 to win by 21 runs.

Hobart Hurricanes Injuries & Team News


The addition of Dawid Malan has given the Hurricanes very good batting depth. The fact that he has come out firing in his first few games has made a huge difference.

Peter Handscomb has not had his finest season with the bat but others are making up for it. It is unlikely that the Hurricanes will tinker too much with this winning side.
