PRS vs SYT Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2020-21

Sydney Thunders have been exceptional in the tournament and are currently settled at the helm of the points table. 

They’re going to face Perth, a team that we think has hit their peak. 

So, will be Sydney Thunder, who’ll continue their juggernaut or will it be Perth, who’ll make it 4 in 4.

Read our preview as Perth Scorchers host Sydney Thunder in crucial game of the Big Bash League. The match will be played at the Perth Stadium and is set to begin at 4:15 PM local time.

Perth Scorchers are coming back from massive wins in their last three games. The bowling, the batting, everything has been top class from the Scorchers.

The unstoppable power in their team is enough to send shivers down the spine of their opposition.

Liam Livingstone, Jason Roy, Colin Munro, Josh Inglish, Mitchell Marsh, Ashton Turner forms a batting line up that can decimate any bowling attack.

The fact that they’ve bowled out their opposition under 100 in their last two games shows that they’ve been very dominant with the ball as well. Jhye Richardson has been sensational. He’s got good support from Jason Behrendorff, Andrew Tye and Fawad Ahmed. 

If there is any team that can match the brutal power of Perth Scorchers then it’s Sydney Thunders. They have Usman Khawaja and Alex Hales at the top. Both of them have been terrific in the last few games.

Cullum Ferguson has also been in top form but the batsmen to follow makes their middle order little wobbly. Ben Cutting can come and hit few big sixes but Sam Billings, Alex Ross and Arjun Nair are not the most dangerous players. While their batting not bad, it’s certainly prone to a collapse if they don’t get a good start.

The bowling of Sydney Thunder is spin heavy with Chris Green, Tanvir Sangha and Arjun Nair. All of them have performed well but against big hitters, they could be under pressure.

Nathan McAndrew has been very good and we think he could be a big asset on the Perth surface.

All in all, it’s all set up for an enthralling encounter but the sheer power in Perth Scorchers team makes us incline towards them as the favourites for this match.

Perth Scorchers vs Sydney Thunder Prediction

Perth Scorchers are looking like a team in red hot form. They boast of quality team that can decimate any opposition. Sydney Thunders have also been good but there are slight vulnerabilities in their batting order. For us, their middle order is little weak. We’d like to stick with Scorchers as the winners

Final Verdict

Back Perth Scorchers to beat Sydney Thunder at 1.80 at Bet365 and 1.70 at Betway.

PRS vs SYT Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket Keeper

    Josh Inglish at 8.5 is a terrific pick. Inglish has been very consistent in the last few games. 

  • Batsmen

    Alex Hales and Jason Roy at 10, Colin Munro at 9.5 and Cullum Ferguson  at 9.0 will form a solid batting order. ALex Hales has been in top form and is the leading run scorer for Scorchers. Jason Roy has also played well in the last few matches. Munro is coming back from two back to back 50’s while Ferguson has been very consistent.  

  • All rounder

    Mitchell Marsh at 9.5 and Ben Cutting at 8.5 are our preferred all rounders. Marsh delivered a man of the match performance in the last game while Ben Cutting has also been very good with his all round abilities.

  • Bowlers

    Jhye Richardson at 9.0, Tanvir Sangha, Chris Green and Nathan McAndrew at 8.50 form a stable bowling lineup. Jhye Richardson is in red hot form and has two 3-fers in the last three matches. Nathan McAndrew bowled brilliantly in the last match while the spin dup of Tanvir Sangha and Chris Green have been instrumental in Thunder’s success in the tournament.

  • Captain /Vice Captain

    We'll go with Alex Hales as the skipper while Jason Roy can be selected as his deputy.

PRS vs SYT Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Alex Hales(c), Jason Roy(vc), Cullum Ferguson, Colin Munro
