STR vs THU Dream11 Prediction: In the Match 28 of the Big Bash League T20 2021-22 season, the Adelaide Strikers will be crossing swords with the Sydney Thunder on 31 December at the Adelaide Oval in Adelaide. Both these sides are coming into this game after facing quite contrasting results in their previous T20 outings. The Adelaide Strikers have not had the best of performances in this T20 season as they have managed to win only a single game and witnessed 5 disappointing losses and have slipped to the seventh spot in the team standings. On the other hand, the Sydney Thunder will be very much high on confidence after a wonderful victory over Perth Scorchers in their last game and this was their third win in the ongoing Big Bash League 2021-22 season and are placed at the fourth position. However, both these teams will also be hoping to play their best brand of cricket in this game as well.
