Head to Head

The Stars are 0-4 to start the season whilst their rival to the west has won four of five matches. However, Melbourne shouldn’t be disregarded too quickly here and are expected to come out firing given the recent announcement that Kevin Pietersen will soon retire from all forms of the game. At the Adelaide Oval, the home side is deserved favourite, but the Stars’ record at the ground is decent (1-2) and there will be plenty snapping up the $2+ odds on the visitors.

 

Key Stat: Melbourne’s overall record is 4-2 against Adelaide.

High Bat

The man known as KP averages 40.00 against the Strikers with a high-score of 66. Paying a generous $4.00 to be the Stars’ High Bat, Pietersen has been building up to a big one in the early season with scores of 10, 30 and 40. For the Adelaide team, Jake Lehmann at $8 is great value and although he bats relatively deep, he has been able to post four double digit scores already this T20 season.

 

Key Stat: Kevin Pietersen averages 34.80 across his 136 T20 games.
