HBH VS MLS: After making it to the fourth semi-final spot at the very last moment, Melbourne Stars would very much like to make the headlines with an upset at the Bellerive Oval. Hobart Hurricanes, who blew away the competition for the most part of the campaign, have looked complacent in their recent run of games. Despite being at the top of the table, the Hurricanes have, worryingly, lost 3 of their last 5 games. Melbourne Stars will certainly do everything to inflict another defeat on the hosts in the tomorrow’s match.
Melbourne Stars hosted Hobart Hurricanes at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on 14th January, when the Hurricanes won the game by 59 runs. Batting first, Hobart Hurricanes posted a handsome total of 185 runs with D’Arcy Short finishing his impressive inning unbeaten at 96 runs. The right-handed fast bowler, Riley Meredith, then wreaked havoc on Melbourne Stars by taking 4 wickets for just 21 runs.
