Hobart Hurricanes

Finally, Hobart Hurricanes got the win that they had been craving for. They defeated Melbourne Renegades in a close cricket game in their last match.

Things have not gone Hobart Hurricanes’ way this season. They have failed to win many games of cricket and find themselves on the second last spot on the points table.  

With just four wins out of 12 cricket games, they just find themselves in contention for the playoffs. 

Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Hobart Hurricanes’ playing XI:

  • BR McDermott
  • Matthew Wade
  • David Miller
  • CP Jewell
  • Jake Doran
  • NT Ellis
  • Qais Ahmad
  • George Bailey
  • TS Rogers
  • SM Boland
  • CA Rose

Sydney Thunder

Sydney Thunder is being led by Callum Ferguson this season. They are hanging in there from the qualification to playoffs point of view. They are currently placed at fifth position and they cannot afford to slip further. 

Thunder have not managed to build the momentum that they would like to at this stage of the tournament. However, they can still reach the next round based on the change in format this season. The new format allows five teams to contend for a playoff spot. 

Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game. 

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

  • Callum Ferguson
  • Usman Khawaja
  • Alex Hales
  • B Doggett
  • AI Ross
  • CH Morris
  • DR Sams
  • N McAndrew
  • JD Cook
  • JS Lenton
  • L Bowe

Expert Prediction: HOH vs THU

Hobart Hurricanes managed to stay just about alive courtesy of their close win over Melbourne Renegades in their last game. They won the game by four runs and managed to get their fourth win this season. 

Sydney Thunder, on the other hand, lost emphatically to Perth Scorchers in their last game and that has hurt their run-rate as well. However, they can still make the cut with five wins on the board and two games remaining. 

The Big Bash League has been changed as a format this year. This year, a total number of five teams will have the chance to qualify for the finals, instead of the usual four teams. 

As per the new format, the teams finishing in the top two will be rewarded for their consistency, unlike in previous seasons. While the winner of the ‘qualifier’ played between the top two teams will reach the final straightaway, the loser will play the ‘challenger’ against the winner of the ‘knockout’ which is going to be played between the side that finished third and winner of the ‘eliminator’.

The Eliminator is a newly introduced knockout feature, which will be played between the teams finishing at number fourth and fifth on the points table. Hence, out of the eight teams, five teams will have a chance to play the final and win the tournament. 

In the last five encounters between the two sides, Thunder have been the winner on last three occasions, whereas Hobart have been the winner on the other two occasions. 

As per cricketing logic, Hobart Hurricanes should be more confident coming into this game courtesy of the win in their last game. Hence, our prediction is of a victory for Hobart. 

Astrology Prediction: HOH vs THU

The win in the last game might just be the sign of tide turning in favour of Hobart Hurricanes. They would be hoping it is not too late though. Our prediction is of Hobart Hurricanes as the winner for this game. 

Toss prediction?The team winning the toss will look to bowl first as the T20 game is hugely a chase-friendly format. Hence, irrespective of the conditions, our prediction is that the team winning the toss would like to bowl first.
