Cricket Match Preview:

A cracking game of cricket awaits us as two of the best teams of the cricket tournament will take on each other in the form of Hobart Hurricanes and Sydney Thunder. Both teams have so far been unbeaten and will be looking to remain so. While Hobart Hurricanes have so far defeated Brisbane Heat and Melbourne Stars, Sydney Thunders have defeated Melbourne Stars and Sydney Sixers.

In the last 5 games of cricket between these two sides, Hobart Hurricanes have beaten Sydney Thunders in three cricket games. However, in the last three games of cricket, Sydney Thunders have managed to beat Hobart Hurricanes a couple of times. Needless to say, it is going to be another close encounter between these two sides.

In terms of superstars, both sides are full of them. While Hurricanes have Jofra Archer and D’Arcy Short, Sydney Thunder have English superstars, Jos Butler and Joe Root. 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 the rest of the cricket league as well.

Hobart Hurricanes, led by Matthew Wade, is once again riding on performances from Jofra Archer, who has picked up exactly where he left off last year. Even in the last game of cricket against Melbourne Stars, he picked up 3 quick wickets, whereas D’Arcy Short, along with picking up few wickets, has also been scoring runs.

Sydney Thunder, led by Shane Watson, did two of the biggest signings of the competition in the form of Jos Butler and Joe Root. The signings have already started reaping fruits for them as well. In the second game of cricket against the Sixers, Jos Butler scored 63 off just 37 balls and helped them get to the score of 169 runs, which was defended brilliantly by their bowlers especially the leg-spinner, Fawad Ahmed.

Cricket Match Information:

Hobart Hurricanes and Sydney Thunder will take on each other in their third cricket game. Both sides have been unbeaten so far in the Big Bash League. In the last season, Hobart Hurricanes finished as the runners-up, whereas Sydney Thunder finished as the number sixth cricket team.

Hobart Hurricanes

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Hobart Hurricanes, led by Matthew Wade, have been in good form in this league. They have easily beaten both sides they have faced so far in the league. 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

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 be continuing 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
  • Jos Butler
  • Joe Root
  • C Ferguson
  • Jason Sangha
  • N McAndrew
  • GS Sandhu
  • Fawad Ahmed
  • Daniel Sams
  • Chris Green
  • SL Rainbird

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Jofra Archer will be in action in the Big Bash League once again. He had a fantastic time last year when he picked up lots of wickets and impressed one and all. Our prediction is he is going to give a fantastic performance once again and light up the league with his performances.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last International T20 cricket game played here was between England and Australia in 2018. In that game of cricket, England scored 155 runs while batting first and could not defend it. Our prediction is 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:

Sydney Thunder will begin this game of cricket as favourites. The presence of Jos Butler and Joe Root adds a distinct advantage to their lineup. Although Hobart will provide them with a strong challenge if Thunder can play Archer well, it will turn the cricket game in their favour. Hence, our prediction is of a Hobart Hurricanes’ win.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Jos Butler (ST) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Fawad Ahmed (ST) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Jos Butler (ST)
