SYT vs SYS Betting Tips

  • Alex Hales has a fine BBL record and is adding to it again this year. The English opener is our tip for Sydney Thunder’s highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Nathan McAndrew has taken eight wickets from the last three fixtures and he is well worth backing as Sydney Thunder’s top wicket taker against Sydney Sixers.
  • James Vince hit 91 not out from 59 balls on Friday and the right-hander is a strong choice for Sydney Sixers’ highest run scorer against Sydney Thunder. With the ball, Sean Abbott took 3-31 against Melbourne Stars and has a good record at the Showground Stadium. He is our pick for Sixers’ top wicket taker in this fixture.
  • With his current form, we recommend backing Nathan McAndrew to take over 1.5 wickets in this match.

THU vs SIX T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2023

Match 34 of the 2022-23 Big Bash League brings together the two Sydney clubs for the first Sydney derby of the season. Sydney Thunder are in third place with 10 points from eight games with Sydney Sixers on top of the league with 11 points from nine fixtures. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway on January 8th at the Sydney Showground Stadium at 19:15 local time.

Sydney Thunder are in excellent form and had a notable win over Perth Scorchers in their last fixture. This is another top of the table clash, and a local derby, and they have the players who enjoy the big occasion.

Sydney Sixers took themselves to the top of the BBL table and left Melbourne Stars at the bottom after their last win. This will be a tougher game though and the Sixers will need to be at their best with bat and ball.

THU vs SIX, Sydney Showground Stadium Pitch Report

Sydney Thunder Team News & Playing 11

THU Team News

Daniel Sams missed the successful trip to Perth on Wednesday with a groin injury but is not expected to be kept out of action for too long. With Thunder looking likely to go far in the tournament, we do not anticipate the management to risk him for this game.

THU Key Players

  • Alex Hales- there are only three players who have hit more runs in the tournament so far than Alex Hales who has passed 50 on three occasions already. 
  • Oliver Davies- the 22 year old batter is developing an excellent reputation in this format and has hit half-centuries in each of his last two innings.
  • Nathan McAndrew- the right-arm medium fast bowler has a strike-rate of 9.7 in the tournament and dismissed the dangerous Perth Scorchers skipper, Ashton Turner, in the last match.

THU Team Form

Sydney Thunder have won all of their games in the tournament since being beaten by Adelaide Strikers in Match 9. They are targeting their fifth successive victory in this game.

Sydney Sixers Team News & Playing 11

SIX Team News

Spinner Steve O’Keefe was not risked for Friday’s clash with Melbourne Stars and we expect him to be given an additional few days of rest to help the repair of his hamstring injury. There are no other injury worries in the Sydney Sixers squad.

SIX Key Players

  • James Vince- after a slow start to the campaign, James Vince has gradually scored more runs over recent games. Only Matthew Short and Chris Lynn have scored more runs than him in the tournament.
  • Jordan Silk- the middle-order batter has been a reliable source of runs for Sixers, particularly when others have failed. His 15 runs from 10 balls proved to be crucial to the win against Melbourne Stars
  • Sean Abbott- the right-arm bowling all-rounder is up to 13 dismissals in the BBL 2022-23. His figures against Melbourne Stars were his best in this competition.

SIX Team Form

The Sixers have lost only one of their last seven games in this year’s BBL, a run which has taken them to the top position.

Who will win Sydney Thunder vs Sydney Sixers T20 Match?

Both teams have quality throughout their squad and have batters in strong form. However, Sydney Sixers have the greater bowling line-up and those options may prove crucial in this match.

SYT vs SYS Top Team Batsmen

Our batting picks are Alex Hales, Oliver Davies and Matthew Gilkes for Sydney Thunder. Hales is the clear favourite with the bookies and he has a top score of 77 in this season. Gikes has hit 164 runs at the top of the order and bats with slightly more controlled aggression than Hales.

James Vince, Josh Philippe and Jordan Silk are our recommendations with the bat for Sydney Sixers. Vince’s recent form has seen him take the top odds ahead of this match. Philippe is yet to hit the heights of previous seasons but has still hit a half-century at the top of the order.

SYT vs SYS Top Team Bowlers

Nathan McAndrew, Usman Qadir and Ben Doggett are our bowling tips for Sydney Thunder. McAndrew has the top odds with the bookmakers and no batter will relish facing him in his current wicket taking form. Doggett has five wickets from his last two appearances in the competition.

We recommend Sean Abbott, Chris Jordan and Hayden Kerr with the ball for Sydney Sixers. Abbott now has 138 wickets across his BBL career, the most of any player. Kerr ended a run of seven successive wicket taking games with figures of 0-32 against Melbourne Stars.
