Fantasy Tips of The Day
When these two sides met earlier in the league, Joe Clarke smashed the first century (101*off 66) of the tournament.
On the bowling front, Adam Zampa and Luke Wood each bagged a three-wicket haul.
Patrick Dooley (12) and Riley Meredith (11) are the top two wicket-takers for Hobart this season.
When Caleb Jewell and Ben McDermott batted against Adelaide a week ago in Hobart, they ended up with scores of 54 and 53 respectively.
64 boundaries have already been launched at the venue in the last two games. Clearly, plenty of bonus points in the offering.
