Hobart Hurricanes v Sydney Thunder – Match Preview

Sydney will have been disappointed to slip up against a resurgent Brisbane Heat and will be keen to bounce back quickly to cut the gap to the top of the table.

Hobart have won five of their eight matches so far and adding another win here could go a long way to helping them to a play-off place.

Where: Optus Stadium, Perth

When: Thursday, 7 January 2021

Start time: 12:40 IST (07:10 GMT)

Pitch conditions: Perth is likely to become slower in the second innings. Chasing becomes increasingly difficult so expect the team winning the toss to bat first. Spinners could have some joy late on as the pitch deteriorates in the sun.

Weather conditions: It is set to be a hot, dry and sunny day in perth. Temperatures will be above 35 degrees and there is no chance of rain.

Hobart Hurricanes v Melbourne Renegades – Team News

Both sides have enjoyed a good start to this year’s tournament and it is unlikely that either will make sweeping changes despite defeats last time out.

Alex Hales and Usman Khawaja were in fine form against the Renegades and they should continue at the top of the Thunder order. Sam Billings is also finding his feet batting at number four.

Hobart are not short of batting power of their own. Ben McDermott and England’s T20 star Dawid Malan have been in the runs recently.

Scott Boland and Nathan Ellis will lead their bowling attack again but spinner Sandeep Lamichhane could have a big role to play if selected.

Hobart Hurricanes v Sydney Thunder – Betting Tips and Prediction

This looks another competitive contest in the BBL. Both teams have done well so far but how they react to recent losses will be key here.

Given how close the outright winner betting is, it could be good to look at other markets in search of value predictions.

Sangha to Shine for Sydney

Young Australia spin prospect Tanveer Sangha has looked a real threat in this tournament and can continue that in this clash.

The right-arm leg-spinner should enjoy the conditions in Perth and is in fine spirits after recent showings. He took three wickets against Heat after bagging another against the Renegades.

He is priced at 4.0 with bet365 to be Sydney’s top bowler.

Back Malan to Top Score for Hobart

Dawid Malan looks to have carried his international form straight into the BBL.

He has hit the ground running and is capable of chalking up more runs here. While he prefers the ball to come onto the bat, he is adept at playing slower pitches and his game reading has been a real plus point for England recently.

His 75 against the Stars two games ago was impressive and he looks in the mood for more.

He can be backed at 4.0 with 22Bet to be Hobart’s top run-scorer.

Thunder to Have the Highest Opening Partnership

Picking Sydney Thunder to have the highest opening partnership looks another good bet in this match.

D’Arcy Short is capable of destructive batting but he has struggled recently at the top of the Hobart order. McDermott has done well but it could come down to how long he has a partner.

The way Khawaja and Hales batted together against Melbourne Renegades means they can win this bet. They put on a half-century in that game and a repeat should be enough to get the job done.

Khawaja hit a duck in his last game but Sydney’s price of 1.75 with bet365 to have the highest opening partnership looks worth taking.
