Hobart Hurricanes will face the Sydney Thunder in the 31st match of the Big Bash League 2020-21 season. The two sides have been in top form so far. They will want to win yet another game and build more momentum in this Cricket tournament.
Hobart Hurricanes have won five out of their first eight games. They have secured 18 points. Ben McDermott has been performing extremely well for them at the top of the order. They are looking set to finish in a top 4 spot after the end of the group stages. Not only their batting, but their bowling has also been top class in this season. Riley Meredith has been the star in the bowling line-up. However, he has got good support from Nathan Ellis and Scott Boland. Sandeep Lamichhane has made the Hurricanes’ bowling line up a strong outfit with his guile and accuracy. Hurricanes lost their last match against the Melbourne Stars by 10 runs at the Bellerive Oval. They could cement their spot in the top four with a win in the upcoming match.
Sydney Thunder has had an inspiring run in this year’s tournament so far. They lost their first match of the season and then had a five-match winning streak. Then, Brisbane Heat ruined their streak win by defeating them by five wickets at the Gabba. Alex Hales has been the star with the bat for the Thunders while Tanveer Sangha has been the star with the ball. The Sydney Thunders will have a major availability in the upcoming match in the form of Daniel Sams who has been ruled out of the upcoming match after he suffered a concussion in the last match. Sams has scored 133 runs in the tournament and has also picked up eight wickets in the tournament. So, Sydney Thunder will miss him in the upcoming match. However, they will hope that the likes of Ben Cutting and Sam Billings will bring them back to winning ways.
The Hobart Hurricanes and the Sydney Thunders have faced each other 13 times. The Hurricanes have won 8 matches, while the Thunder have won 5 matches.
The two teams go to strength to strength on paper. However, Daniel Sams’ unavailability could hamper the chances of a Sixers’ win.
