The 32nd game of the Big Bash League 2021-22 would see a confident Sydney Thunder take on the Adelaide Strikers. The two sides played in the last game as well where Thunder registered an impressive win. The side has been hit by a Covid scare and they would look to overcome this challenge and win here. 

The Adelaide Strikers are battling poor form and they have lost the last five games in a row. The side would look to come out of it and win here. It would be a massive challenge for them as the players would be low on confidence. It would be interesting to see if the Strikers win this game and keep their hopes alive for a berth in the playoffs.

Sydney Thunder Preview

Chris Green’s side battled a Covid scare in the camp and yet downed the Adelaide Strikers by 22 runs in the last game. The side has been in great form winning the last three out of four games they have played. This would add to their confidence as they return home to take on the Strikers again. Green would look seal a win here and move up to the 3rd position on the points table.  

Alex Hales won’t be available for selection and the side would rely on Matthew Gilkes and Ben Cutting to provide them with a good start. In Sam Billings and Jason Sangha, they have players in good form in the middle order and they strengthen the middle order with Oliver Davies. They would expect to see good hitting from the likes of Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, and Nathan McAndrew in this game.

The side would want to see good spells with the new ball from Saqib Mahmood and Daniel Sams and the duo would look to provide the side early wickets in the game. McAndrew and Green form a lethal pair in the middle overs. In Tanveer Sangh and Cutting, they have good depth in the attack.

Sydney Thunder Predicted Playing XI:

Chris Green (c), Matthew Gilkes, Jason Sangha, Sam Billings (wk), Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, Ben Cutting, Nathan McAndrew, Saqib Mahmood, Tanveer Sangha, Oliver Davies

Adelaide Strikers Preview

Peter Siddle’s side is battling for survival in the tournament. A win here would keep their hopes alive for a berth in the playoff while a loss would nearly seal their fate. Siddle would want his players to play positive cricket in this game. They would have to win the mental battle to win the real one on the ground.  

Jake Weatherald and Matthew Short have scored runs and the side would expect a good start from them. Matt Renshaw and Jonathan Wells did well in the last game and they would want to build partnerships with Thomas Kelly in the middle order. Harry Nielson, George Garton, and Rashid Khan haven’t made runs down the order and their form would be decisive in this contest.  

Daniel Worrall and Garton have to bowl tighter lines in this game after a poor show in the last one against Thunder. Siddle is struggling for form and the side would like him to lead from the front. Rashid Khan and Fawad Ahmed did well in the last game and they would need to come up with a similar show here for the side to win.

Adelaide Strikers Predicted Playing XI:

Peter Siddle (c), Jake Weatherald, Matthew Short, Matt Renshaw, Jonathan Wells, Thomas Kelly, Harry Nielsen (wk), George Garton, Rashid Khan, Daniel Worrall, Fawad Ahmed

Weather Conditions

Weatherman predicts overcast skies over Sydney on January 02 and this would offer good assistance to the fast bowlers. Batsmen have to play to the merit of the ball. The wicket has been on the slower side in most games. The side batting first shall look to put 170 runs or more on this track.

Venue Details

Sydney Showground Stadium’s pitch has been slow in the recent games that have been played. Batsmen have to adjust to the pace of the wicket to do well at this venue. Fast bowlers have done well here at the venue and spinners also benefit from the pace of the wicket and they can create doubts in the minds of the batsmen.

Toss: To Bowl

The track here has been slightly tricky and we have seen sides struggle due to the variable bounce. In the past teams have done well chasing the score at this venue. Hence, the side winning the toss would most likely invite the opposition to bat first in this game.

Adelaide Strikers need a good game plan and they will have to execute it perfectly. Their bowling attack has been out of form and this has troubled the side in most of the games they have played. Sydney Thunder on the other hand comes here high on confidence and having defeated the Strikers already, they would start favorites here.
