Sydney Thunder to win this match

Sydney Thunder are slightly ahead of the Adelaide Strikers in the league. They have been more dominating in the last few matches. However, the fact that Strikers will be playing in their home conditions might actually give me an edge. But, Thunder look like a better side to take this one.

THU vs STR Toss Prediction and Pitch Report

The Adelaide pitch has been producing some really high-scoring games in the last few matches. This one could just be another one of those high-scoring battles. The short boundaries on the leg side have been easy for batsman to score. However, the pitch with a little wear and tear will benefit the bowlers, bringing balance to the match.

Predicted Score:

If THU bats first: 180-190

If STR bats first: 170-180

Players who are expected to perform well as per THU vs STR Dream11 Teams.

Top Batsman


Alex Hales: The English batter is the highest run-getter in the league so far. He has scored 462 runs in the tournament with a strike rate of 165. In addition, he is fresh after a brilliant 56-ball 110 knock against Sydney Sixers just a few days back.


Alex Carey: Talking about centuries, Carey got one a few days at the same Adelaide pitch where this match will be played. He is their highest runscorer so far in the tournament with 381 runs in the tournament.

Top Bowlers:


T Sangha: Tanveer Sangha has picked up 20 wickets from the 12 matches which he has played. He has been picking wickets at an average of 16 with a economy close to 8. There is no doubt he should be picked in any fantasy team.


W Agar: Like what Sangha has done for the Thunder, it is the same thing which Agar has been doing for Strikers. He has picked up 21 wickets in this season’s 12 matches which he played. He is without any doubt the best bowlers from the Strikers line-up.
