What to expect:
Hobart Hurricanes: Hobart Hurricanes will be taking on Sydney Thunder in their 3rd home game of the season. They’ve played their last two BBL games at this venue. The performances have been highly inconsistent with the batters going from high to low in just two outings here.
Matthew Wade and Macalister Wright led the run chase with 82 and 63 runs respectively as the Hurricanes secured a 6-wicket win over the Renegades. Wright was phenomenal in the next match as well but it wasn’t a big inning this time around.
Hobart Hurricanes Key Players
- Macalister Wright- the right-handed middle-order batter came into the team just before Christmas and has already hit 99 runs in two games.
- Caleb Jewell- the left-handed opener made his highest score of the tournament against Melbourne Stars and has hit two scores of 40+ so far in this campaign.
- Riley Meredith- the 27-year-old right-arm pace bowler is yet to go wicketless in BBL 2023-24 and dismissed Sam Harper followed by Marcus Stoinis in the first over of the innings in Match 17.
- Nathan Ellis- the skipper got the wicket of Hilton Cartwright on Thursday and has taken combined figures of 3/45 over the last two games.
Probable XI: Matthew Wade(w), Caleb Jewell, Macalister Wright, Sam Hain, Corey Anderson, Tim David, Nikhil Chaudhary, Chris Jordan, Patrick Dooley, Nathan Ellis(c), Riley Meredith
Hobart Hurricanes Squad: Matthew Wade(w), Caleb Jewell, Macalister Wright, Sam Hain, Corey Anderson, Tim David, Nikhil Chaudhary, Chris Jordan, Patrick Dooley, Nathan Ellis(c), Riley Meredith, Iain Carlisle, Liam Guthrie, Peter Hatzoglou, Ben McDermott, Mitchell Owen, Sam Heazlett, Billy Stanlake
Sydney Thunder: Sydney Thunder needs to bounce back with the bat before it’s too late. They’ve been struggling to score runs lately and after two back-to-back batting failures, a strong comeback is a must.
Alex Hales, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, and Cameron Bancroft form the top 3 of this batting lineup. It is a formidable batting order which should make any bowling attack in the world nervous.
Sydney Thunder Key Players
- Alex Hales- the former England international seems to be making runs on a more consistent basis now. He has hit over 11600 T20 runs.
- Alex Ross- the experienced middle-order batter has already made two scores of 40+ in this campaign. On a tough batting wicket, his know-how could be key.
- Daniel Sams- the bowling all-rounder did not get a chance to bowl in the last game before the rain arrived but showed his ability with the bat when hitting 30 runs from the middle order.
- Chris Green- the captain opened the bowling in the Sydney derby and got the key wicket of Josh Phillipe to take his tally this season to four.
Probable XI: Cameron Bancroft(w), Alex Hales, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Oliver Davies, Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, Chris Green(c), Nathan McAndrew, Gurinder Sandhu, Liam Hatcher, Tanveer Sangha

Hobart Hurricanes vs Sydney Thunder Match Prediction
With both teams in the lower positions in this year’s BBL table, getting a group of wins together is the only way they will have a chance of qualifying for the play-offs. Both the Hurricanes and Thunder have played better than their league-table position but ultimately have been unable to get enough wins. With a wider range and variation in their bowlers, we are backing Hobart Hurricanes to win.
We expect the Hobart Hurricanes to win this match.

Hobart Hurricanes vs Sydney Thunder Match Both Team Top Batsmen
Caleb Jewell, Matthew Wade and Macalister Wright are our batting tips for Hobart Hurricanes. Keeper-batter Wade made only 1 run in his last innings but had hit 82 in the previous match against Melbourne Renegades and is only 102 runs from bringing up 5000 in this format. Jewell’s highest score in this format is 70 and he needs only 42 runs in this game to hit the 1000 mark in T20 cricket.
Our picks with the bat are Alex Hales, Cameron Bancroft and Alex Ross for Sydney Thunder. Opener and keeper Bancroft has been in excellent form but could only make 6 runs from 10 balls in the Sydney derby. Ahead of Sunday’s game, he was in second place in the leading run scorers in this tournament. Hales has played in 74 BBL matches with a top score of 110.
Hobart Hurricanes vs Sydney Thunder Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
Riley Meredith, Nathan Ellis and Chris Jordan for Hobart Hurricanes. England international Jordan only bowled one over during the shortened innings against Melbourne Stars but he has taken 343 T20 wickets across his career. Meredith bowls with genuine pace and if he puts the ball in the right areas in Hobart he will have success. His best T20 figures are 4/21.
We recommend Chris Green, Daniel Sams and Nathan McAndrew as our bowling choices for Sydney Thunder. McAndrew was selected in the Prime Minister’s XI for the tour game against Pakistan in early December and has been economical throughout this BBL campaign. Green will look to give the ball plenty of air in this game and look to encourage the batters to take him on.
