Sydney Thunder vs Adelaide Strikers Tips


The Sydney Thunder have fallen to four defeats in as many matches and their Sydney Smash loss to the Sydney Sixers officially ended any finals hopes.

The Adelaide Strikers have looked good of late with three straight wins, and they come into this one on the back of a commanding eight-wicket win over the Hobart Hurricanes. I'm backing them to boost finals hopes with a win.

Head To Head


The Strikers have won their last four meetings with the Thunder including a six-wicket win in December. In their last 10 meetings, the head-to-head sits level at 5-5.

Sydney Thunder Form 


The Sydney Thunder have not been good enough this season, and their finals aspirations are officially over following a 19-run loss to Sydney Sixers on Friday.

The Thunder have picked up just one win, one no result and six losses to sit bottom of the standings.

They were in a commanding position against the Sixers in the Sydney Smash at 63/2, but lost their last eight wickets for just 69 runs as they were bowled out for 132. 

Adelaide Strikers Form 


The Adelaide Strikers sit in fourth on the ladder with nine points from nine games, but need to sign off with a win to keep the Melbourne Stars at arms length. 

They are bidding to head into the finals on the back of a four-game winning run, with previous triumphs over the Scorchers and Hurricanes twice seeing confidence grow at the right time of the season.

Jake Weatherald was in scintillating form against the Hurricanes last time making 80 not out from 32 balls.

Verdict

I'm backing the Strikers to secure a fourth win in a row with Alex Hales to top score for the Thunder and Jake Weatherald to make his mark once again for the Strikers.
