Stoinis has been the star batsman in the past matches whereby he scored 81 runs against Hurricanes in their previous outing. The team defeated them by 52 runs.

 Key Players: 

 HUR Key Players: 

Riley Meredith: 
The bowler has 10 wickets to his credit and has been on a roll since the start of his league. He has secured his position in the team right from the first match with his stupendous performance. He can definitely take a toll on the Stars with his bowling pace and  skills.

Qais Ahmed: 
He has been a consistent performer from the bowling segment. Although an all-rounder, he is yet to mark his significance with his bat on the field. He is a reliable player, who can do wonders in the next match, if he holds true to his form.

 STA Key Players: 

Glenn Maxwell: 
The skipper all-rounder  won ‘Player of the Match’ in the inaugural match of the team and has been leading the pack from the front. With 83 off 39 and 43 off 25, he has proved his mettle with his bat and wise decisions on the field.

Adam Zampa: 
With 6 wickets in 3 matches so played by the team, this bowler has made the opponents fall weak in their knees. With an economy of 6.50 RPO, he is a dependable bowler and can make the team win in the upcoming match.

 Team Forms: 

 Hobart Hurricanes: 

The team has been performing well but in bits and pieces. The main players of the team are also yet to achieve their full might on the field, whereas the others haven’t made much of efforts to make the team win. The team lost against Melbourne Stars from a margin of 52 runs. They need to make certain improvements if they intend to supersede the competitors.

 Melbourne Stars: 

The form of the Stars has been as bright as their name. Although they lost their last match, but their shine is expected to be intact in the upcoming match against Hurricanes. Having defeated them previously, players like Maxwell, Zampa have been on the forefront. Others like  Marcus Stoinis and Maddinson have walked hand in hand with them and made major contributions to the overall team performance.

HOBART HURRICANES: George Bailey, Caleb Jewell, D Arcy Short, David Miller, Ben McDermott(w/c), Clive Rose, Qais Ahmad, Nathan Ellis, Macalister Wright, James Faulkner, Riley Meredith, Simon Milenko, Thomas Rogers.

MELBOURNE STARS:  Ben Dunk, Marcus Stoinis, Nick Larkin, Glenn Maxwell(c), Peter Handscomb(w), Nic Maddinson, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa, Haris Rauf, Sandeep Lamichhane, Daniel Worrall, Hilton Cartwright, Clint Hinchliffe.
