Manuka Oval – Canberra, Australia
The Big Bash is going to move to Canberra for this next match as Sydney Thunder gets ready to lock horns with the Perth Scorchers. Both of the teams are firmly in the bottom half of the BBL points table right now but there is still enough time left to turn things around. The Perth Scorchers could have registered their first ever win of this season against the Melbourne Stars but the rain interrupted the match to be abandoned before the result. Sydney Thunder won its game against Brisbane Heat because of some fantastic hits from Daniel Sams and Ben Cutting in the end. Many things to work on for both the teams.
Pitch Report and Conditions & Toss Prediction:
Manuka Oval, Canberra is a small ground with short boundaries around the square and we have witnessed several high scoring games over the years. The ball comes on to the bat nicely allowing batsmen to play desired shots. Fast bowlers get help from the surface with the new ball but spinners have always had a tough time bowling at this ground with the small size of the boundaries.
There are forecasts for darkened skies and heavy rains at Canberra on December 22 and we would be lucky to have a full game here. The weather conditions are expected to make the batting challenging in this match. The side that bats first here would be happy to cross a score of 170 runs.
Canberra has been a good venue to chase scores as the pitch remains same in both innings of the match and thinking of a total, defendable here would be a tough task. In the three games so far in this season the side batting second has won twice by chasing big scores. Thus we believe the team that wins the toss here would prefer to bowl first.
SYDNEY THUNDER Predicted XIs:
Usman Khawaja, Alex Hales, Callum Ferguson (C), Alex Ross, Baxter Holt (wk), Ben Cutting, Daniel Sams, Chris Green, Nathan McAndrew, Jonathan Cook, Tanveer Sangha
PERTH SCORCHERS Predicted XIs:
Josh Inglis (wk), Colin Munro, Joe Clarke, Mitchell Marsh, Ashton Turner (C), Cameron Bancroft, Aaron Hardie, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Joel Paris, Fawad Ahmed
