ST vs SS – Last Match Analysis

Sydney Thunder – The team played their last match against Perth Scorchers, who is in very good form and have won all of their last 4 matches. In the last match, Sydney Thunder lost the match by 17 runs. Usman Khawaja (26) gives a good start to the team but other players including Alex Hales (5) and Callum Ferguson (0) could not perform well. Sam Billing (83) gave his best effort but was not able to reach the winning total i.e. 186 runs. On the bowling side, Brendon Doggett’s bowling was very impressive, taking 4 wickets of big players Jason Roy, Livingstone, Josh Inglish, and Mitchell Marsh.

Next Match Analysis:

This fixture is going to be a must-watch for two separate reasons. Firstly, it is going to be a top of the table clash, where the two most formidable and consistent sides of this competition will lock horns. To add to its appeal, it will also be a derby game.

Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers will fight for bragging rights when they meet at the Manuka Oval. Both Sixers and Thunder have won 6 of their 9 games so far, but thanks to BBL’s interesting point system, the Sixers have two points more than their rivals. They will aim to increase the gap, while the Thunder will be determined to snatch the pole position from them.

Pitch Report:

Canberra is a good pitch to bat on but in the last 2 matches pitch became slow especially in the second innings. It will be hard to time the ball easily as the match progresses as the pitch tends to crack under hot sun.

Weather Conditions:

Canberra is expected to have a sunny and hot climate on the match day. Rain and weather interruptions might make their appearances in this match.

Toss Prediction:

Teams batting first have posted 190+ runs and bowled out the opposition for sub-100 runs in the last 2 matches. We expect both teams to bat first if they win the toss.

Sydney Thunder Predicted XIs:

Usman Khawaja, Alex Hales, Callum Ferguson (c), Sam Billings (wk), Alex Ross, Ben Cutting, Nathan McAndrew, Chris Green, Adam Milne, Brendan Doggett, Tanveer Sangha

Sydney Sixers Predicted XIs:

Josh Philippe (wk), Jack Edwards, James Vince, Daniel Hughes (c), Jordan Silk, Daniel Christian, Carlos Brathwaite, Steve O Keefe, Jackson Bird, Jake Ball, Lloyd Pope

Both teams have an excellent batting line-up with 4-5 players in superb form and scoring runs consistently at the top order. They also have an equally poised bowling attack with every player matching head-on with the other in the opposition in pace and spin departments. Sydney Thunder have home conditions on their side while the presence of quality all-rounders Dan Christian and Carlos Brathwaite tilts us in favor of the Sydney Sixers to win this match.  We expect the match to go down the wire and the depth in their playing XI may come in handy for the Sixers in this match.
