Sydney Thunder v Adelaide Strikers – Team News

  • Alex Carey – The wicketkeeper-batsman has enjoyed a fine BBL so far. He is right up there with the top run-scorers after his brilliant century in the previous game.
  • Jake Weatherald – He is the Strikers’ second-highest run-scorer but the top-order batsman will be keen to finally kick on and turn starts into a big score.
  • Wes Agar – The 23-year-old has 21 wickets in 12 BBL matches this term and comes here in fine form after bagging four more in the previous outing.
  • Alex Hales – This year’s leading run-scorer showed all his ability when blasting a 56-ball 110 against the Sixers in the last game.
  • Callum Ferguson – The experienced batsman has been able to support Hales well and has been key to how the Thunder have done this campaign.
  • Tanveer Sangha – The leg-break bowler is another who has shone this BBL. The youngster rarely draws a blank and has been rewarded with 20 wickets in 12 matches so far.

Sydney Thunder v Adelaide Strikers – Betting Tips and Prediction

This is a key clash for both teams and their hopes of play-off qualification.

Strikers are very capable on their day but inconsistency has been a big issue throughout the competition.

The Thunder started well, dropped off a little, but now look to have found their stride again.

The form of Alex Hales at the top of the order and the support he has got from Usman Khawaja, Callum Ferguson and Sam Billings gives them the foundation for more wins.

How that top-order copes with Siddle and Agar could go a long way to deciding this one.

However, given the recent form of the two sides and that stellar win over the Sixers, preference goes at Thunder for the win.

They can be backed a 1.8 with bet365 and it looks a good bet against a side that has quickly become too reliant on Alex Carey for their runs.

Back Siddle to Strike

Peter Siddle is recovering from a hand injury on his non-bowling hand but can be the main man for Adelaide.

It is no surprise to see Wes Agar heading up the top bowler market for the Strikers but it does mean there is some value in Siddle’s price of 3.74 with 22Bet.

He has 16 wickets of his own this BBL and has excelled at this ground with two three-wicket hauls in his last two matches here.

McAndrew the Value Bet

Nathan McAndrew has enjoyed a solid BBL with the Thunder and has 13 wickets in his 11 matches so far.

After the spin attack, the Thunder pace bowlers have struggled for consistent wickets.

McAndrew has done the best and could be worth backing him here at a bigger price. He drew a blank at this ground last time out and didn’t enjoy the best of times but can hit back quickly.

His price of 5.0 with 22Bet to be Sydney’s top bowler looks slightly too big.

Take a look at our round-up of the best bets for this match.
