Sydney Thunder Form & Team News

After a loss against the Melbourne Stars, the Sydney Thunder bounced back really well with a four wicket win against the Brisbane Heat. The Thunder had lost their way with 22 for 3 while chasing a target of 179 set by the Heat, but the heroics of Daniel Sams made sure that the Thunder were on the winning side. Sams scored 65 runs in just 25 balls with seven massive sixes.

Their two inform batsmen Alex Hales and Callum Ferguson were out for a duck, but they are expected to bounce back with better performances. They have a better balanced team with an experienced top four, some good finishers in the likes of Ben Cutting, Daniel Sams and Chris Green. But they have a pretty young bowling attack. And also the Thunder are expected to stick to their same playing XI.

There were some good performances by the likes of Colin Munro, Joe Clarke and Aston Turner, who scored 49, 34 and 39 runs respectively.

It looks like their batting is gathering some momentum ahead of their match against the Sydney Thunder, but their bowling hasn’t been tested as the second match was washed out.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Even if the odds are against the Sydney Thunder, they are looking good after the last match and will be confident to make it two wins in a row. The Perth Scorchers will look to replicate the previous performance with the bat.

Tip 1: Sydney Thunder to win

In the last five head to head matches, the Sydney Thunder are leading the tie with four wins to their name and just a solitary win for the Perth Scorchers. All these five matches were really close matches and there was nothing much to separate the two sides, but the Thunder held their nerves on four occasions to emerge victoriously. In the current season of the Big Bash League, the Thunder have won one out of the two matches played, but the Scorchers are yet to open their account. So by considering the recent form, the Sydney Thunder are more likely to win the match at 2.10 odds offered by the Casumo sportsbook.

Tip 2: Most 4s – Sydney Thunder

In the last five head to head matches, the Sydney Thunder have hit 64 fours at an average of 12.8 fours per match. On the other hand, the Perth Scorchers have hit 51 fours in the last five head to head matches at an average of 10.2 fours per match. In this season of the Big Bash, the Thunder have hit more fours than their opponents in both the matches. While the Scorchers just managed to hit 12 fours and conceded 13 fours against the Melbourne Renegades in their first match. Also, the Scorchers have hit more fours than the Thunder in just one of the last five head to head matches. So, it is more likely that the Sydney Thunder will hit more fours than the Perth Scorchers at 2.05 odds offered by the Casumo sportsbook.


This could be another close match as it has been in the previous head to head matches, but the Thunder might end on the positive side of the result. Summarizing a couple of bets mentioned above

  1. Sydney Thunder to win @ 2.10
  2. Most 4s – Sydney Thunder @ 2.05
