Perth Scorchers failed to get their first victory at the end of 4 matches and were reeling at the bottom of the table. But, the season took a big turnaround as they came back strong to win their last 3 matches on a trot by a big margins. They are steadily building up momentum towards the business end of the tournament. Sydney Thunder are at the top of the ladder after their win in the last match. They will look to further consolidate their position at the top with a win in this match.  With both teams in good form and winning momentum we can expect a cracking contest in this match.

Sydney Thunder Preview

Thunder Openers Usman Khawaja (49 runs) and Alex Hales (21 runs) started the match in good fashion with a 59-run partnership. They suffered a collapse as they were reduced from 59/0 to 76/4 at the half-way stage. Alex Ross (44 runs) and Ben Cutting (31 runs) scored runs quickly and finished their innings with a flourish.

Their bowling unit hunted as a pack as the 5 bowlers claimed wickets and gave runs at less than 7 RPO.  Spinner Arjun Nair, Tanveer Sangha, and Chris Green had combined bowling figures of 11-0-71-5 in the match. Nathan McAndrew and Adam Milne shred 3 wickets between them in the match to strangle the opposition to 128/8 in 20 overs.

Top players to bet on:

Alex Hales – Hales has scored 264 runs at a superb strike rate of 168 this season. His aggressive batting at the top is setting up the tone of the innings for his team. He will look to continue his purple patch in this match too.

Tanveer Sangha – Young spinner Sangha is leading the bowling charts with 15 wickets in 8 matches so far. He has been the find of the season so far for the Thunde`s team.

Sydney Thunder Predicted Playing XI:

Jason Roy, Liam Livingstone, Colin Munro, Josh Inglis (wk), Mitchell Marsh, Ashton Turner (c), Aaron Hardie, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, Fawad Ahmed

Venue Details

Perth pitch is slightly on the slower side and batsmen will struggle to score rusn as the match progresses as the pitch will offer more uneven bounce. We can expect average scores to be around 160-170 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first has won all the three matches by big margin and teams batting second has struggled to score freely here. Both teams have already played at this venue and both captains will opt to bat first if they win the toss.  

Both teams are in good form and momentum leading to this match and has played and won matches here to get a good look of the conditions on offer. Perth Scorchers have a slight advantage at this venue as the will be high on confidence after bowling out opposition for less than 100 runs in both their matches played here.  Sydney thunder relies heavily on their spin bowler’s top bowl nearly 10-12 overs in the match and it might be a boon or abne depending upon the bowling conditions on offer. We expect Sydney thunder to win this match expecting the track to play slow and help their spin trio.

SYDNEY THUNDER WILL WIN THE MATCH
