THU vs HUR Dream11 Prediction Big Bash League T20 Live Score, Pitch Report, Player Stats, Dream11 Team for Today’s Match


THU vs HUR Dream11 Prediction: The 47th match of the BBL 11 will feature an in-form Sydney Thunder take on the Hobart Hurricanes at Docklands. Thunder, who are enjoying a mammoth six-match winning streak, are seated at the second spot in the BBL 11 rankings. They’ve managed to muster 8 wins in 11 matches, which includes a recent 9-wicket win over the Hurricanes that witnessed Alex Hales finish the innings with an unbeaten 80. Meanwhile, Hurricanes are occupying the fourth spot with 5 wins and 6 losses. Matthew Wade and D’Arcy Short haven’t been at the best of their form which has certainly affected the team’s performance this season. Nonetheless, the Hurricanes can still gather a healthy momentum before heading into the knockouts, starting from the rematch against the Thunder at Docklands.

  • In the batting line-up, the trio of Alex Hales, Matthew Gilkes and Jason Sangha hold a significant value for the Thunder.

  • In the bowling line-up, pacers Nathan McAndrew, Gurinder Sandhu, Mohammad Hasnain, and spinner Tanveer Sangha are likely to come up with yet another daunting exhibition.


Alex Hales Stats in T20

 Over the years, Hales has become one of the prolific run-getters in the BBL. Though he had a string of dismal performances in the last few matches, fortunately for the Thunder, the English opener managed to come back to his regular self in the business end of the tournament. Hales struck match-winning knocks of 63 and 80* against the Melbourne Renegades and Hobart Hurricanes in the last two matches respectively, and with the runs in his stride, he could be backed as a captain or vice-captain in the fantasy line-up.

Daniel Sams Stats in T20

The all-rounder’s inclusion comes as a no-brainer in the fantasy line-up, for his harmonious onslaughts throughout the season. Bowling left-arm fast-medium, Sams has grabbed 15 wickets at an average of 21.53 and an economy of 8.28. He batted at No 4 against the – a move turned out to be another masterclass for the Thunder – as he smashed 98* that comprised 7 fours and 8 sixes.

  • Nathan Ellis (injury), Joel Paris (injury) and Scott Boland (international commitment) are sidelined for this match as well.


Ben McDermott Stats in T20

 He’s been the backbone in the Hurricanes’ batting line-up. The top-order batter has amassed 495 runs across 9 innings while averaging 61.85 and striking at over 150. With two scores in excess of 90 in the last five matches, another impressionable performance is likely on cards for the right-handed batter.

 D’Arcy Short Stats in T20

He has always been a vital player in the Hurricanes’ batting order and it shouldn’t surprise many if the veteran cricketer rises on the occasion in the fag end of the tournament. Short can provide decent starts to the innings, and though he has donned the role of anchor in BBL 11, one shouldn’t undermine his striking abilities with the willow, something that can damage the rival bowlers in crunch matches.

Who will win THU vs HUR today match?

Even since Alex Hales has returned to his scoring ways, the Sydney Thunder look lethal than ever. Hales’ blistering performances at the top-order alongside an equally enthralling Jason Sangha and Matthew Gilkes, with hard-hitter Daniel Sams, Ollie Davis and veteran Ben Cutting to follow, gives the Thunder a depth in their batting order. Not just in the batting department, but the Thunder look far more competent than the Hurricanes in their bowling attack, considering the likes of Gurinder Sandhu, Nathan McAndrew, Mohammad Hasnain and Tanveer Sangha have enjoyed a good run so far in the BBL 11. As per THU vs HUR today match prediction and Sydney Thunder vs Hobart Hurricanes cricket betting tips, Sydney Thunder are likely to emerge victorious in this match.
