THU vs REN: Possible Sydney Thunder Playing 11 for Match 55 of Big Bash League


Sydney Thunder Playing 11: Thunder need to win this game to stay in contention for the second spot which has its own advantages. Though winning here wont guarantee them a second spot as Sydney Sixers need to lose their game against Brisbane Heat which looks highly unlikely. Sydney Thunder lost to Sixers by a big margin of 60 runs which has dented their NRR as well.

Thunder are a tactically strong side and they have done some very good things off the field and have implemented them on the field to reap rewards. Their bowling is dented with no overseas pacers available for them going forward as all have left to join with their national squad.

Team news

  • Usman Khawaja is back for the first time in this season for Sydney Thunder.
  • Thunder dropped the out of form Ben Cutting in the previous game and he is expected to sit out in this game as well.
  • Muhammad Hasnain has left to Pakistan to train for the upcoming PSL and will not be available for the rest of the season.
