Sydney Thunder Form
The Sydney Thunder are second on the BBL table and will want to hold onto that position going into the playoffs. They however faltered against the Hobart Hurricanes last time out.
Bowling first, the Thunder could only restrict the Hurricanes to 177 runs in 20 overs. It was a stiff total to chase, but they put in a good effort, falling just nine runs short.
Alex Hales smashed 38 off 17 balls while Jason Sangha scored 31 runs. Unfortunately the rest of the batsmen failed to get going as they only reached 168 runs.
