SYT vs HBH Betting Tips

  • Only four players have hit more runs than Alex Hales so far in the tournament and the English opener is a strong choice for Sydney Thunder’s highest run scorer in this game. Daniel Sams has taken two wickets in each of the last two fixtures and the left-arm pace bowler is our tip for Sydney Thunder’s top wicket taker against Hobart Hurricanes.
  • Ben McDermott has passed 50 in 20 T20 games and the opener is well worth backing as Hobart Hurricanes’ highest run scorer against Sydney Thunder. With the ball, our pick for Hobart Hurricanes’ top wicket taker is Riley Meredith who took 3-12 from his four overs in the last match.
  • Sydney Thunder’s opening batting pair have been the more consistent of the two teams. We recommend backing Gilkes and Hales to hit the biggest opening partnership in this match.

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

Sydney Thunder take on Hobart Hurricanes in Match 22 of the 2022-23 Big Bash League on Saturday afternoon at the Lavington Sports Oval, Albury. Thunder have taken six points from six fixtures in the competition so far with the Hurricanes taking four points from four fixtures. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway in New South Wales at 15:30 local time.

Sydney Thunder have won their last two matches by 10 wickets and 11 runs and will be full of confidence ahead of this clash against a very competent Hobart Hurricanes team.

Hobart Hurricanes have secured narrow wins in two of their last three matches but should be too strong for Sydney Thunder with two of their best players returning to the side in this game.

Sydney Thunder Team News & Playing 11

THU Team News

There are no new injuries in the Sydney Thunder squad ahead of this game with Oliver Davies still playing through a hip injury. He hit 16 runs from 10 balls against Brisbane Heat and will bat in an aggressive style again in this match. We do not anticipate any changes for Thunder in this fixture.

THU Key Players

  • Alex Hales - The 33 year old had hit successive half-centuries before the last game but will enjoy the challenge of batting on a bowler-friendly pitch in this clash.
  • Matthew Gilkes - The left-handed keeper-batter comes into this match in excellent form after hitting 93 runs from his last two innings. 
  • Daniel Sams - The bowling all-rounder delivered with both bat and ball in the win over Brisbane Heat. If he can produce quick runs alongside wickets in Albury then his performance could be crucial.

THU Team Form

Sydney Thunder lost three games in a row earlier in the tournament but are now targeting their third win on the bounce in this match.

Hobart Hurricanes Team News & Playing 11

HUR Team News

Ben McDermott missed the Christmas Eve fixture against Melbourne Renegades at the Bellerive Oval with a slight hamstring niggle and we expect him to come back into the team for this game. Skipper Matthew Wade was suspended for Match 14 and will return as keeper-batter in this match.

HUR Key Players

  • Ben McDermott - The opener has an excellent T20 record with over 3000 runs and three centuries in this format. He is yet to find form in this campaign but this game could be where he makes a difference.
  • Patrick Dooley - The left-arm wrist spinner continues to impress in this his first full BBL season. He is yet to go wicketless in the tournament and has eight wickets from his last three games.
  • Riley Meredith - The 26 year old right arm fast bowler took the Player of the Match Award after picking up the wickets of Sam Harper, Andre Russell and Tom Rogers against Melbourne Renegades.

HUR Team Form

The Hurricanes have won two of their last three games and have games in hand on all the rest of the teams in the BBL 2022-23.

Who will win Sydney Thunder vs Hobart Hurricanes T20 Match?

Neither team has had a disappointing start to the competition but both will be looking to kick on in their next run of games. We think the Hobart Hurricanes’ batters hold the key to winning this fixture.

SYT vs HBH Top Team Batsmen

Our batting selections are Alex Hales, Rilee Rossouw and Matthew Gilkes for Sydney Thunder. Hales and Rossouw have the top odds with the bookmakers and both internationals have been in strong form. 23 year old Gilkes has a top score of 93 in this match.

Ben McDermott, Matthew Wade and D’Arcy Short are our batting picks for Hobart Hurricanes. The top odds are with McDermott who has been one of the best BBL batters over the last few seasons. Short has a top score of 122 not-out in T20 cricket.

SYT vs HBH Top Team Bowlers

Daniel Sams, Usman Qadir and Nathan McAndrew are our bowling choices for Sydney Thunder with the ball. Sams is in ninth place on the all-time BBL wicket takers list and has the top odds with the bookmakers. McAndrew comes into this game after taking 4-32 against Brisbane Heat on Thursday.

Our recommendations with the ball are Nathan Ellis, Riley Meredith and Patrick Dooley for Hobart Hurricanes. Ellis and Meredith are joint favourites with the bookies but it is Meredith who has been far more dangerous in this campaign. Dooley has nine wickets at an average of 9.44 and a strike-rate of 10 in the competition.

🏆 Sydney Thunder vs Hobart Hurricanes Prediction

Both Sydney Thunder and Hobart Hurricanes have won two of their last three games, with Thunder coming into this match off the back of successive victories. As a result, we are expecting a very close contest in Albury with any individual hitting a score of over 50 likely to be decisive in the match. Thunder are a talented side but we think that the Hurricanes are stronger and we are predicting a victory for Hobart Hurricanes in this fixture.
