Adelaide Strikers vs Sydney Thunder Tips

Sydney Thunder have been faltering at the business end of the season. Adelaide Strikers won a tight game on Sunday, and with home advantage again can seal their finals spot with a repeat win. 

  • Adelaide Strikers have won 3 of their last 4 matches.
  • The Strikers won by 6 runs against the Sydney Thunder on Sunday.
  • Sydney Thunder have lost 4 of their last 5 matches.
  • The Thunder recorded the highest BBL score of 232/5 in their only win in the last 5 matches.

Head to Head

Adelaide Strikers won by six runs in Sunday's clash with the Sydney Thunder. That took the head to head record to 7-6 in the Strikers' favour.

The Thunder had won the previous three meetings before Sunday's loss.

Adelaide Strikers Form

Adelaide Strikers moved into fourth place on the back of a 6-run win over the Sydney Thunder on Sunday. They sit on the same number of points as the Thunder with 27 earned from 13 matches. 

The Strikers would have been disappointed with 159/6 batting first. The top five all got starts but couldn't go big. Alex Carey (29), Jake Weatherald (31), Phil Salt (31), Travis Head (31) and Ryan Gibson (22) got the runs.

But they restricted the Thunder to 153/7 with Michael Neser (2/17) and Peter Siddle (2/22) doing the business with the ball.

The Strikers have also beaten Melbourne Stars by five wickets and Brisbane Heat by 82 runs during their recent run. They also lost to the Stars by 111 runs.

Strikers Team News

The Strikers will be unchanged after the win on Sunday. Peter Siddle has recovered fully from

Bowlers Daniel Worrall and Harry Conway and batsman Jono Wells will be among the X-Factor options.

Sydney Thunder Form

Sydney Thunder have now lost four of their last five matches after going down by six runs to the Adelaide Strikers on Sunday.

Having looked certainties to make the finals, the Thunder still need to get something from this game to be assured of finishing in the top five. Their positive NRR could be a big factor in the Thunder's favour.

Thunder failed to follow up their record 232/5, the biggest ever BBL total, in a 47-run win over cross-town rivals Sydney Sixers on Friday.

Brendan Doggett led the way with the ball with 2/21, but the middle order falted for the Thunder in the run chase. Sydney went from 73/1 to 114/7 and ultimately fell six runs short.

Thunder Team News

Already with Daniel Sams with a broken hand, the Thunder could lose fellow quick bowler Nathan McAndrew for Monday's game.

He was struck on the hand when bowling and, despite batting in an attempt to get Sydney across the line, will be touch and go. Chris Tremain will be on standby to replace him.

Tanveer Sangha was replaced by Alex Ross as an X-Factor on Sunday, but should line-up in the starting eleven.
