Cricket Match Preview:

A crack game of cricket awaits as Sydney Thunder and Hobart Hurricanes will be taking on each other. This cricket game is far more critical for Sydney Thunder’s progress than Hobart Hurricanes, who have already qualified for the semifinal spot.

In the last 5 games of cricket between these two sides, Hobart Hurricanes have beaten Sydney Thunder in 3 cricket games. In this tournament, Sydney Thunder were also defeated by Hobart Hurricanes when they met at Hobart. In that cricket game, despite scoring 193 runs while batting first, Hobart Hurricanes got home with 7 wickets in hand.

In terms of superstars, both sides are full of them. While Hurricanes have Matthew Wade, Jofra Archer and D’Arcy Short, Sydney Thunder have Shane Watson. So far, both sides have managed to win the games of cricket on the basis of the performances from these superstars. It is expected to continue in the same manner in this cricket game as well.

Hobart Hurricanes, led by Matthew Wade, have been sensational with the bat in the tournament. They have not only won games of cricket but they also dominated the sides while doing so. They have chased down targets in access of 150 with 10 wickets. They have recovered from impossible situations and won the cricket games on the back of performances from experienced George Bailey and James Faulkner.

Sydney Thunder, led by Shane Watson, did two of the biggest signings of the competition in the form of Jos Butler and Joe Root. While the signings did reap the fruits for them in the beginning, once Jos Butler and Joe Root left for their international duty, they have struggled to win games of cricket hence, they find themselves in a difficult position.

Cricket Match Information:

Sydney Thunder and Hobart Hurricanes will take on each other in their last and second last cricket game of the tournament. While Sydney Thunder are still in the race to seal the number 4 spot for the semifinals, Hobart Hurricanes have already sealed the semifinal spot and are at number 1 position on the points table.

Sydney Thunder

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Sydney Thunder, led by Shane Watson, have given inconsistent performances so far. Our prediction is they will continue with the same playing eleven, which they played in the last game of cricket.

Here is our prediction of Sydney Thunder’s playing XI:

  • Shane Watson
  • C Ferguson
  • AP Devcich
  • Jason Sangha
  • JD Cook
  • BJ Holt
  • Chris Jordan
  • GS Sandhu
  • Fawad Ahmed
  • Daniel Sams
  • Chris Green

Hobart Hurricanes

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Hobart Hurricanes, led by Matthew Wade, have been in good form in this league. They had easily beaten Sydney Thunder when they sides last met. Our prediction is they will continue with the same playing eleven as they played in their last game of cricket.

Here is our prediction of Hobart Hurricanes’ playing XI:

  • D’Arcy Short
  • Ben McDormett
  • Matthew Wade
  • Jofra Archer
  • James Faulkner
  • Alex Doolan
  • George Bailey
  • CA Rose
  • Riley Meredith
  • Johan Botha
  • S Milenko

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Shane Watson will be in action once again. This might be his last appearance in the tournament. As a result, he would like to give his best once again and give the best possible chance to this team to move forward. Our prediction is of a good performance from him in this game of cricket.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last International cricket game played here was between New Zealand and Australia in 2016. In that game of cricket, Australia scored 378 runs while batting first and defended it easily. Our prediction is of, once again, a score of around 160 while batting first and that should prove to be a match-winning one. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Hobart Hurricanes will begin this game of cricket as favourites. They have been the best team in the tournament so far. Sydney Thunder will be under a lot of pressure to win this cricket game in order to qualify for the next round. Hence, our prediction is of Hobart Hurricanes’ win.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Da’Arcy Short (HH) – 50+ runs
