After an impressive win in their first match of the season, the Hurricanes will host the Stars in Monday night BBL action.

All eyes will likely be on the Hurricanes latest star, D'Arcy Short who kicked off his Big Bash career against the Sixers with an explosive 61 from 29 deliveries as well as a handy wicket with the ball. Given the Hurricanes lack of explosiveness at the top of the order they will probably have to rely heavily on him again to get them off to a flying start.

Typically slow starters to the tournament having won just 1 of their 5 opening matches, the Melbourne Stars will be hoping not to put themselves behind the 8-ball early this season. They could be a bit stretched however in the bowling department with their #1 bowler John Hastings missing through injury.

This match will likely come down to whether the Hurricanes bowling line up of Tait, Boyce and Broad can contain the depth of the Stars batting line up. After an impressive game 1 performance with both bat and ball, as well as already having a match under their belt this season we are going to tip the Hurricanes to get the win as $2.30 outsiders with Sportsbet.
