HBH vs SYT Team Previews

Hobart Hurricanes

The Hurricanes have been disappointing so far this season. The team has managed to win just 1 of the 4 matches played so far and is sitting at the bottom of the points table. Also, its NRR is the worst among all teams.

While there are some quality players on the team, there have been no standout performers so far. The opening pair of Matthew Wade and Caleb Jewell has been rather inconsistent and the team will need a solid start from them in this match.

The middle order consists of Macalister Wright and Sam Hain, while all-rounders Corey Anderson, Tim David, and Nikhil Chaudhary add depth to the batting. It is a similar story to the bowling unit. Riley Meredith and Nathan Ellis are two of the most experienced seamers on the team but have been quite expensive and have managed to pick up only 4 wickets each.

They will be supported by Corey Anderson and Chris Jordan in the seam department. Patrick Dooley, the lone specialist spinner, has picked up just 2 wickets so far.

Sydney Thunder

Just like the Hurricanes, the Sydney Thunder too haven’t had the best of starts. With 3 points from 5 matches, the Thunder are sitting in the bottom half.

However, some in-form players in the team can turn the match in their favor. Cameron Bancroft is the leading run-scorer for the team with 181 runs. He has received good support from Alex Hales at the top of the order. In addition, the middle order batting consisting of Oliver Davies and Alex Ross has played well.

The inclusion of Tom Kohler-Cadmore further strengthens the team’s big-hitting capability. Coming to the bowling, Daniel Sams is the leading wicket-taker this season with 10 wickets. He will lead the pace attack alongside Liam Hatcher, Gurinder Sandhu, and Nathan McAndrew.

The spin department consists of Tanveer Sangha and skipper Chris Green.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Bellerive Oval is hard and offers plenty of pace and bounce. The presence of some patches of grass allows the ball to skid. The quicker bowlers will get some movement early on in the match as the ball swings. The batsmen will need to tread carefully with the new ball.

The average first-inning score is around 160, but the team batting first will need to go over 180 to give the bowlers a good chance. There isn’t much in the pitch for the spinners and they will need to be disciplined with their line and length.

The weather is likely to be overcast with temperatures between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius.


HBH vs SYT Betting Tips

While both the teams have performed below par this season, we feel that the Sydney Thunder have an edge in this contest. The team has some standout performers who are up for any challenge thrown their way. On the other hand, the Hobart Hurricanes have failed to do well as a unit and are likely to struggle in this match.

Bet on the Sydney Thunder to win.

    Highest Opening Partnership

    Sydney Thunder (1.82)


Alex Hales and Cameron Bancroft have been playing consistently well for the Sydney Thunder. On the other hand, while Caleb Jewell and Matthew Wade are quality players, they haven’t been consistent enough. We are therefore backing the Sydney Thunder to put up the higher opening partnership.

  1. Satbet


    Sam Hain to score under 20.5 runs



Sam Hain hasn’t been in the best of forms this season. He has scored an aggregate of 28 runs in 4 innings, with a highest score of 14. As he faces a quality bowling attack, we are expecting another poor outing for him.
