An allround bowling performance highlighted by 17-year-old debutante Darcie Brown's 3/13 restricted the Hurricanes to 84.
Interim captain Megan Schutt also started the game with two wickets in two balls which had the Hurricanes 2/2 after the first over, which set up proceedings.
South African international Laura Wolvaardt was impressive on debut, leading the Strikers' run chase with aplomb and finishing on 51 not out - her highest Big Bash score.
Captain Suzie Bates remains unavailable with a shoulder injury.
Play begins at 2:00pm (ACDT) on Monday, and the playing XI will be announced at the pre-game bat flip.
The match will be available via cricket.com.au an the CA Live app, and Kayo.
