SYT vs SYD Match Preview

This season, the Thunder team has witnessed some outstanding individual performances. Cameron Bancroft has been in exceptional form with the bat, scoring an impressive 175 runs in just 4 innings. Currently, he holds the second position in the list of top run-getters. Joining him at the top of the order is expected to be Alex Hales.

Although Oliver Davies has shown promise with a couple of good starts, he is yet to play a significant inning. Similarly, Jason Sangha and Alex Ross are also expected to step up their game and contribute more to the team. On the bowling front, Daniel Sams has been in brilliant form, taking 9 wickets in his last 2 matches. As a result, he now holds the title of the leading wicket-taker this season.

In the seam department, Sams will be supported by Zaman Khan, Gurinder Sandhu, and Nathan McAndrew. Tanveer Sangha has also impressed with a couple of good spells, taking 5 wickets so far. He will be accompanied by Chris Green in the spin attack.

Josh Philippe and James Vince form a formidable opening partnership and will aim to provide the Sydney Sixers with a quick start. James Vince displayed exceptional form in the previous match, scoring 83 runs off just 55 deliveries. Jordan Silk has been the highest run-scorer for the Sixers this season, accumulating 116 runs.

In addition to Silk, Daniel Hughes, Moises Henriques, Jack Edwards, and Joel Davies contribute to a strong middle order. The Sixers possess a potent seam attack, thanks to the presence of skilled seamers such as Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis, and Jackson Bird.

Bird has been exceptional, taking 6 wickets so far and leading the team in wicket-taking. However, the spin department, consisting of Steve O'Keefe and Todd Murphy, has not been as effective thus far.

Weather Report

The temperature will remain around 21 degrees Celsius. 

Pitch Report

The pitch at the Sydney Showground Stadium is well-balanced. The seamers will get some swing with the new ball and the batsmen will need to settle down before they can start playing the big shots. A score of around 155 is a par score on this ground.

The slower bowlers can expect some grip and turn as the ball gets softer and older. The weather is likely to remain overcast and there may be some occasional drizzling.

Dream11 Prediction

We are backing the Sydney Sixers to win this match. They have played well this season and more importantly, most of the players have contributed when required. On the other hand, the Sydney Thunder have some players who are in excellent form but have failed to perform well as a unit. Also, the Sixers have historically played well in the Sydney Derby, giving them a psychological edge.
