A blockbuster New Year’s Eve party is all set to rock at the Adelaide Oval, with the Strikers hosting their first home game at the redeveloped stadium against the red-hot Perth Scorchers.
All reports point to the Adelaide Oval being all but sold out at the time of writing, and a crowd upwards of 34,000 will be looking to bring in 2014 with a bang.
The Strikers come into this game having briefly held the BBL 03 competition lead in the past few days, and were impressive in closing out the Sydney Thunder and a rampant Michael Hussey at ANZ Stadium last Friday night.
On a ground about as far removed from Adelaide Oval as you can get, the Strikers posted a defendable 153, before Kane Richardson and Shaun Tait’s superb death bowling delivered them the win.
The Scorchers, too, come into this match with their tail up, brilliantly defending their modest total at ‘the WACA’ on a balmy Boxing Day evening.
Mitchell Marsh was more than handy with the ball, but their newly arrived overseas import, Pakistan all-rounder Yasir Arafat might just become Perth’s new cult hero, with the superb figures of 4-1-15-3.
So two teams in decent form, in front of a packed house at the Adelaide Oval, wanting to get the New Year’s Eve party started. It’s just about the perfect recipe for a cracking contest.
