SYT vs ADS Betting Tips

  • Opener Usman Khawaja hit 77 from 51 balls in the 1-run win over Melbourne Renegades on Wednesday. He is well worth backing as Sydney Thunder's highest run scorer in this game. Daniel Sams has been excellent with the ball all tournament and is our tip for Sydney Thunder’s top wicket taker against Adelaide Strikers.
  • Matt Short top scored with 89 from 48 balls in the Eliminator and is our pick for Adelaide Strikers’ highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Peter Siddle picked up 4-32 at the MCG on Friday and is a strong choice for Adelaide Strikers’ top wicket taker against Sydney Thunder.
  • We are predicting Usman Khawaja to keep up his recent excellent batting form and to take the Player of the Match Award.

THU vs STR T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2022

Sydney Thunder and Adelaide Strikers go head to head in the Knockout play-off fixture of the 2021-22 BBL on Sunday evening in Melbourne. Sydney Thunder finished the group stage in 3rd place, level on points with 2nd placed Sydney Sixers. Adelaide Strikers finished 4th and beat Hobart Hurricanes in the Eliminator on Friday. Read on as we preview this game. This BBL play-off match begins at the MCG at 19:15 local time.

Sydney Thunder ended the group stage with two defeats and a narrow 1-run win over bottom of the table Melbourne Renegades. They will need to raise their game to compete with the in-form Strikers.

Adelaide Strikers can do no wrong at the moment and have won every game from January 12 onwards. Their confidence levels will be sky high at the moment.

Sydney Thunder Team News & Playing 11

THU Team News

After hitting two centuries in the Sydney Ashes Test, Usman Khawaja came back to the top of the Sydney Thunder order alongside Alex Hales on Wednesday. They had a narrow win against Melbourne Renegades but that will give the team confidence. We expect to see an unchanged XI for this match.

THU Key Players

  • Usman Khawaja- the Sydney Thunder captain returned to the side after two successful Ashes Tests and top scored in the win over Melbourne Renegades.
  • Alex Hales- the English opener has been in excellent form since the turn of the year and has hit 248 runs from his last five BBL innings.
  • Daniel Sams- the all-rounder has had a very strong tournament, taking 19 wickets and with a top score of 98 not out 

THU Team Form

Sydney Thunder got an important win over Melbourne Renegades on Wednesday to end a run of two successive defeats.

Adelaide Strikers Team News & Playing 11

STR Team News

The return of Australia’s Ashes wicket-keeper, Alex Carey, and Travis Head has given another boost to the Strikers who were already in excellent form. Alongside recent addition Ian Cockbain, their batting line-up now looks incredibly strong. There are no players unavailable and it would be a huge surprise to see any changes to the Adelaide XI.

STR Key Players

  • Matt Short- the opening batter has hit 448 runs in the tournament and is the leading run scorer of those still left in the competition.
  • Jonathan Wells- the experienced middle-order batter has made 3 half-centuries during this BBL and has finished the last two innings not-out.
  • Peter Siddle- the 37 year old Strikers captain has had another excellent BBL season and is the tournament’s leading wicket taker with 27 dismissals.

The Strikers are on fire in the BBL 2022 and have won their last five games.
