Sydney Thunder

Sydney Thunder are being led by Callum Ferguson in this season. They are currently placed at the fifth spot with just three wins out of eight cricket games. After beginning well, they seem to be losing the momentum with three back-to-back losses.  

After losing their super over game against Sydney Sixers, Thunder have lost four out of their next five games of cricket. They would like to arrest the downward slide soon.

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
  • M Gikes
  • AI Ross
  • CH Morris
  • DR Sams
  • N McAndrew
  • AJ Nair
  • CP Tremain
  • JD Cook

Hobart Hurricanes

Matthew Wade is back leading the side for Hobart Hurricanes. Due to his Australian test team commitments, he was not available to lead the side initially. It did not begin too well for him from the captaincy point of view as Hurricanes lost the game by five wickets against Brisbane Heat. 

Wade himself scored 61 runs off 46 balls but could not take Hurricanes to a safe score. With just a handful of games remaining before the playoffs, Hurricanes would like to get back into the top five soon.

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
  • S Milenko
  • NT Ellis
  • Qais Ahmad
  • George Bailey
  • TS Rogers
  • SM Boland
  • CA Rose

Expert Prediction: ST vs HH

Two struggling sides, Sydney Thunder and Hobart Hurricanes, will be taking on each other in the next clash of Big Bash League. Both teams are in need of some wins and they need to start now. The change in the format of the league this year allows them to remain in contention by remaining in the top five hence, that should be their goal. 

The Big Bash League has been changed as a format this year. The tournament will be played over a period of 42 days and 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, Sydney Thunder have been the winners on three occasions, whereas Hobart Hurricanes have been victorious on the other two. Our prediction is of the victory for Hobart Hurricanes in this cricket game as they will be buoyed by the return of their regular skipper. Thunder, on the other hand, are now under pressure to turn around their campaign soon. 


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.
