Adelaide Strikers v Sydney Thunder – Team News

  • Jake Weatherald – Has done a fine job supporting Alex Carey at the top of the order. He hit an important 31 in the previous game as he reached the 30s in his last two innings. He will want to build on the two half-centuries he has managed this BBL.
  • Alex Carey – The wicketkeeper-batsman continues to push towards the head of the top run-scorer table. When he fires so do the Strikers,
  • Peter Siddle – The experienced campaigner took two key wickets as Adelaide defeated Sydney in the last game. He will be vital for them again here.
  • Alex Hales – The Englishman only managed 10 in the last clash but that was a rare blip in BBL 10 for him. He has looked in fine form and is also challenging at the top of the run-scorer charts.
  • Brendan Doggett – The right-arm pacer hasn’t played much this BBL but has taken wickets whenever he has featured. He has seven wickets in three innings and took another two here on Sunday.

Adelaide Strikers v Sydney Thunder – Betting Tips and Prediction

This looks like being another close contest as both sides fight it out for a place in the play-offs.

Adelaide have put themselves in the driving seat after victory last time, but the Thunder will be keen to hit back.

Given how close this clash could be, looking at other markets aside from the outright winner is the way to go.

Weatherald Looks Good Value

Jake Weatherald has quietly gone about his business at the top of the order for Adelaide.

While big-hitting partner Alex Carey has been taking the headlines, Weatheald has been chalking up the runs in consistent fashion.

He has reached the 30s in his last two innings and a big score could be edging closer for the Strikers’ second-highest run-scorer this BBL.

His price of 4.5 with 22Bet to be his team’s top batsman in this game looks a good price.

Back Siddle for More Wickets

Peter Siddle has been in sublime form for the Strikers once again. Backing him to be their top bowler in this game makes plenty of appeal.

He has 18 wickets in 11 matches and bagged two more in the previous clash. Wes Agar is ahead of him in the wicket-taker charts but Siddle can build on his tally back at Adelaide.

This ground has brought the best out of him and his price of 3.75 with bet365 is a great bet.

Milne to Star for the Thunder

Adam Milne has not taken the wickets he would have liked so far this BBL but did bowl really well in the last clash between these two sides.

His pace attack only brought one wicket but his economy was brilliant and that will have given him a big boost heading into this one.

He looks a good bet to be Sydney’s top bowler at 3.6 with bet365.
