Cricket Match Preview:

The defending champions, Adelaide Strikers, had a setback in their last game of cricket. After a good start in their first game of cricket, where they beat Brisbane Heat, they have endured two disappointing losses in a row. Sydney Thunder also had a disappointing loss against Hobart Hurricanes in their last game of cricket.

In the last 5 games of cricket between the two sides, Adelaide Strikers have defeated Sydney Thunder on three occasions. However, Thunder have been in better form than Strikers in this edition of Big Bash League. Both sides experienced loss of different kinds in their last cricket games. While Strikers lost the game against Perth by a big margin of 7 wickets, Thunder lost the game of cricket against Hobart by 7 wickets. However, both games were quite different in nature.

After beating Brisbane Heat in the first game of Big Bash League, Strikers were oozing with confidence, however, the might of Perth’s bowling on a bowling paradise proved to be a bit too much for Strikers. Strikers were bowled out for the score of 88 runs only. Perth won the game of cricket comfortably in 18 overs with 7 wickets remaining.

On the other hand, Sydney Thunder seemed to be riding high on confidence after signing Jos Butler and Joe Root. The former especially helped them win the game of cricket against the Sydney Sixers. Jos Butler once again put Thunder into a terrific position in the game of cricket against one of the unbeaten sides in the tournament, Hobart Hurricanes. With the knock of 89 off just 54 deliveries, Thunder reached the score of 193 runs but it was not going to be enough as Hobart comfortably chased the total down in 19.1 overs with 7 wickets remaining.

Cricket Match Information:

Adelaide Strikers will take on Sydney Thunder in their fourth cricket game. So far, Adelaide have won one and lost two cricket games, whereas Sydney Thunder have won two cricket games and lost one. Both teams are coming from the loss in their last cricket game.

Adelaide Strikers

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Adelaide Strikers, after a fair start, have begun to fall away a little. They have now lost two consecutive games of cricket. The last game of cricket against Perth would have especially hurt them. Our prediction is of some changes in their lineup.

Here is our prediction of Adelaide Strikers’ playing XI:

  • Alex Carey
  • J Weatherhald
  • Colin Ingram
  • JW Wells
  • JS Lehmann
  • MG Neser
  • C Valente
  • MW Short
  • Ben Laughlin
  • Rashid Khan
  • Billy Stanlanke

Sydney Thunder

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Sydney Thunder, led by Shane Watson, have been in good form in this cricket league. Our prediction is they will continue with the same playing eleven that they played in the last game of cricket.

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

  • Shane Watson
  • Jos Butler
  • Joe Root
  • C Ferguson
  • Jason Sangha
  • N McAndrew
  • JD Cook
  • Fawad Ahmed
  • Daniel Sams
  • Chris Green
  • SL Rainbird

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Rashid Khan has once again begun well in the Big Bash League. However, his performances this time have not helped Strikers to win as many games of cricket. With sides playing him with caution, he will have to find new ways to get the batsmen out. Our prediction is of a good performance from him in the next game of cricket.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

Adelaide Oval has always have had a good pitch to bat on. The test match between India and Australia recently had a little bit of everything for everyone. The batsmen should feel comfortable over here and our prediction is of scores of more than 160 in this game of cricket. Anything over 160 should prove to be a match-winning score. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Sydney Thunder will begin this game of cricket as favourites. Based on their recent form, Thunder look in a much better mindset than Strikers. Strikers’ loss in their last game of cricket against Scorchers would have especially hurt them hence, our prediction is of a Sydney Thunder victory.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Shane Watson (ST) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Rashid Khan (AS) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Shane Watson (ST)
