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

Sydney Thunder will take on Hobart Hurricanes in the 43rd match of the Big Bash League. The match will be played at the Manuka Oval and is set to begin at 7:15 PM local time

After two back to back losses, Thunders are in a spot of bother. They're placed  second spot in the points table but they're far from being certain in the playoffs. 
A couple of more losses and they can be in big trouble. 

Thunders have one of the best batting lineups of the tournament in Alex Hales, Usman Khawaja, Cullum Ferguson, Sam Billings and Alex Ross. 

Players like Ben Cutting and Daniel Sams provide a lot of depth in the batting order. 
However, in the last two matches, the players have looked slightly out of touch. This can happen in such a long tournament and we believe there shouldn't be too many concerns about the same. 

All the batsmen have few runs behind them and we're certain that they'll perform better in the upcoming games. 

In the bowling department, Daniel Sams, Adam Milne, Tanveer Sangha, Nathan McAndrew, Jonathan Cook have been pretty decent will pose a stern challenge to the opposition.
Hobart Hurricanes with 5 wins and 5 losses are placed 7th in the points table and face a must win situation in the next game.

Hurricanes have been very inconsistent with the bat.  They're not short on quality and certainly are capable of beating the best teams but the players have not lived up to the expectations. 

Ben McDermott has been their stand out performer. D Arcy Short got runs in the last match. Dawid Malan, Colin Ingram, Peter Handscomb have played few good knocks but they've been far too inconsistent. 

The bowling looks good on paper with Riley Meredith, Sandeep Lamichhane, Scott Boland, Nathan Ellis and Johan Botha but have not looked threatening on the ground. 
Overall, we see Sydney Thunders as a better team and would like to stick to them as the winners of the match.

SYT Key Players

HBH Key Players

  • Bowlers

    Riley Meredith and Tanveer Sangha at 8.5 and Nathan McAndrew at 8.0 will complete our team. All the three bowlers have been pretty decent in the tournament
