Not many teams would cope too well with the loss of their best player. But the Adelaide Strikers are making a good fist of life without the outstanding Rashid Khan, now on international duty with Afghanistan.

Their senior players are stepping up, namely skipper Alex Carey who hit the first century of the BBL season in Thursday's win over the Brisbane Heat. Carey's brilliant 101 from 62 balls set up a crushing 82-run victory. It lifted the Strikers to a 6-6 record as they jostle with the Sydney Thunder for a finals berth.

The Strikers have stepped up impressively since Rashid Khan's departure and we like their experienced pros to get the job done here. Their pace trio of Michael Neser, Peter Siddle and Wes Agar were outstanding against the Heat and they have a wonderful mentor in coach Jason Gillespie. The Thunder are also without key all-rounder Daniel Sams, recovering from a hand injury.
