SYT VS HBH TEAM PREVIEWS
Sydney Thunder has won six straight games and is currently in second position in the BBL 2021-22 rankings. When it comes to adjusting to player absences, the club has done an excellent job and has continued to deliver. Its next encounter is against the Hobart Hurricanes, whom it beat in its previous match.
The Hobart Hurricanes are currently in fourth place in the BBL 2021-22 season. They have, however, lost three of their previous four matches, and they come into this encounter with a terrible recent record.
This is most likely why cricket betting companies have Sydney Thunder as strong favourites in this match.
Sydney Thunder vs Hobart Hurricanes BBL 2021-22 match prediction and cricket betting tips. On the 13th of January 2022, the match will be held at Docklands Stadium in Melbourne.
After vowing to do so in the previous several games, Alex Hales delivered his first meaningful inning of substance. His 80-run inning was enough to give Sydney Thunder a nine-wicket victory. There’s no denying that the Sydney Thunder’s batting lineup is in great shape. Matthew Gilkes has a knack for attracting quick stars, Alex Hales has a string of runs under his belt, Jason Sangha has proven he belongs at this level, and there are three to four outstanding all-rounders to provide depth.
The real danger comes if Thunder loses a few early wickets, exposing its side’s imbalance. In terms of betting, we believe that continuing to back Jason Sangha to score runs is the best option. Look for Over/Under markets and bet on the ‘Over’ side.
The bowling assault of the Sydney Thunder is the team’s major strength right now. Mohammad Hasnain has provided a real threat to the attack, and Gurinder Sandhu just can’t seem to stop taking wickets! Nathan McAndrew and Daniel Sams complete a strong seam bowling attack. We also appreciate Tanveer Sangha’s inclusion as the leg-spinner, as he appears to be better suited to exploiting some slowing pitches than Chris Green.
When it comes to the BBL 2021-22, the Hobart Hurricanes boast one of the best batting lineups. We’ve all seen Ben McDermott’s exploits this season (two centuries and a 93), and he even received a start in the last match. We believe that betting on him at this point in his career makes sense. Individual Over/Under betting markets on Ben McDermott are what you should be looking for once again.
Matthew Wade’s absence is a significant one for the Hobart Hurricanes, and it is still unclear whether he will be fit for the next encounter. Nonetheless, the Hobart Hurricanes have a very good batting order with Darcy Short, Tim David, Caleb Jewell, and Peter Handscomb.
None of the bowlers were effective against Sydney Thunder in the last match, but Thomas Rogers and Riley Meredith have both been excellent this season and we wouldn’t rule them out after only one encounter.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
Sydney Thunder scored 200 runs and then bowled their opponents out for well under a hundred in the previous encounter at Docklands Stadium. This season, the pitch has favoured batters, but it is a little on the slow side. Because of the tiny borders, the big-hitters can really take control once they get their eye in.
We believe that a score of 160-170 will be the basic minimum that teams should aim for.
