BBL 2020-21 is entering a crucial phase in league stages with teams fighting it out for crucial points ahead of the business end. Sydney Sixers and Sydney thunder are currently in the top-2 oppositions of the points table and are set to meet each other in this all important group clash. The winner of this match will not only move ahead but also have a good lead over the second placed team in terms of confidence and points. Sydney Sixers have been on a roller coaster with alternating wins and losses while Thunder has lost 2 of their last 3 encounters recently. Both teams will look to have a psychological edge over the opposition with win in this match.

Sydney Thunder Preview

Sydney Thunder failed to chase down the 186-run target despite the brilliance of Sam Billings (83 runs) last night. They were reduced to 46/4 at the end of power play with their top-3 batsmen Alex Hales, Usman Khawaja, and Callum Ferguson back in the hut. Their top order has scored the bulk of runs this season with every player scoring 200+ runs so far.

Brendan Doggett was the pick of the bowlers as he picked up 4 wickets last game. McAndrew and Ben Cutting chipped in with a wicket each and gave runs at less than 8.5 RPO in the last game. Spinners Tanveer Sangha and Chris Green were taken for a lot of runs and had combined figures of 4-0-53-0.

Top players to bet on:

Alex Hales – Hales is having a superb season with 269 runs at a strike rate of 160+ so far. His ability to score runs quickly at the top will rattle any opposition bowling unit easily. We expect him to score big in this match.

Brendan Doggett – Doggett made an immediate impact with his figures of 4-0-22-4 in his first match this season. He dismissed 4 of the top 5 batsemn of the opposition team in the last game.

Sydney Thunder Predicted Playing XI:

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

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.

Venue Details

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

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first has 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.

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. 

SYDNEY SIXERS will win the match
