Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder Match Pitch Report
Sydney Cricket Ground is often considered a good batting ground and high scores are made on this ground it is good for the batsmen under lights at night but spin bowlers also get some help from the pitch. The team batting first gets the advantage in the night.
What to expect:
Sydney Sixers: The Sixers may be in the third position in the table, but given how the competition for the qualifiers is hotting up they would need the two points from this game more than the Thunder. Hard on the heels of the great Sydney side are Melbourne Stars, Adelaide Strikers, and Hobart Hurricanes with 8 points, 7 points, and 6 points, respectively.
Sydney Sixers Key Players
- James Vince – The right-handed England opener took the Player of the Match Award in the win over Melbourne Stars after striking 12 fours across his innings.
- Daniel Hughes – The 34-year-old left-hander came back into the team for his first appearance since Boxing Day and hit 41 runs from 32 balls in Match 28.
- Sean Abbott – The right-arm fast-medium bowler will be looking forward to returning to the SCG where he has already picked up four wickets this BBL campaign.
- Ben Dwarshuis – The 29-year-old left-arm pacer has taken a wicket in each of the last three games and got the first breakthrough against Melbourne Stars.
Probable XI: Josh Philippe(w), James Vince, Daniel Hughes, Moises Henriques(c), Jordan Silk, Jack Edwards, Hayden Kerr, Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis, Todd Murphy, Steve OKeefe
Sydney Sixers Squad: Josh Philippe(w), James Vince, Daniel Hughes, Moises Henriques(c), Jordan Silk, Jack Edwards, Hayden Kerr, Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis, Todd Murphy, Steve OKeefe, Jackson Bird, Joel Davies, Ryan Hadley, Kurtis Patterson, Steven Smith, Mitchell Perry
Sydney Thunder: Currently placed 7th on the table, Sydney Thunder has just a solitary win against Melbourne Stars to show from 7 matches. What’s worse, the five matches that they lost were all drubbings. Even though they have got three more matches to play, their tournament is as good as over. Mathematically, they are still in the running and can still qualify through to finals if they win their remaining fixtures and some of the other results go in their favor. But it’s all looking bleak.
Sydney Thunder Key Players
- Alex Hales – The former England international hit his highest scorer of this year’s tournament with 72 runs from 55 balls at the top of the order against a strong Perth Scorchers bowling unit on Monday.
- David Warner – The left-hander will now be putting all of his efforts into white ball cricket and he brings a record of eight centuries and 11695 runs in this format to the team.
- Chris Green – The captain took the first wicket in the defeat to Perth Scorchers and he has dismissed a batter in all but two games so far in this campaign.
- Nathan McAndrew – The right-arm medium-fast bowler went wicketless from his first five BBL games this season but has taken three from his last two matches.
Probable XI: David Warner, Alex Hales, Cameron Bancroft, Oliver Davies, Matthew Gilkes(w), Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, Chris Green(c), Nathan McAndrew, Gurinder Sandhu, Tanveer Sangha
Sydney Thunder Squad: David Warner, Alex Hales, Cameron Bancroft, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Matthew Gilkes(w), Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, Chris Green(c), Nathan McAndrew, Gurinder Sandhu, Tanveer Sangha, Oliver Davies, Liam Doddrell, Toby Gray, Liam Hatcher, William Salzmann, Jason Sangha
Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder Match Winner
Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder Match Prediction
A Sydney derby in the BBL always captures the interest of cricket fans across the world and this will be no different in spite of Sydney Thunder’s poor campaign. A defeat in this match will make it mathematically impossible for Thunder to make the top four and in spite of the return of David Warner with the bat, we do not think they have enough bowling threat. Our prediction is for the Sydney Sixers to win this game.
We expect the Sydney Sixers to win this match.

Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder Match Dream11 Team
Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder Match Both Team Top Batsmen
James Vince, Josh Philippe and Daniel Hughes are our recommendations for Sydney Sixers. Philippe hit a six in the win over Melbourne Stars and struck 41 in the previous game against Brisbane Heat at Coffs Harbour in a low-scoring clash. This will be Vince’s 347th T20 innings and he has scored five centuries and 61 fifties across his career.
We recommend David Warner, Alex Hales and Cameron Bancroft as our batting choices for Sydney Thunder. Bancroft has been in excellent form over all formats this season and he will have a point to prove after being left out of Australia’s Test squad earlier this week. Warner has a top score of 135 not out in T20 cricket and averages 37.60 from his 355 innings.
Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
Ben Dwarshuis, Todd Murphy, and Sean Abbott are our bowling tips for Sydney Sixers on Friday. Australia international off-spinner Murphy comes into this game after a brilliant performance against Melbourne Stars where he took 2/15 and dismissed Beau Webster alongside Glenn Maxwell. Abbott has five wickets from 18.3 overs in this year’s competition and has top T20 figures of 5/16 in his career.
For Sydney Thunder, Nathan McAndrew, Chris Green, and Daniel Sams are our picks with the ball. Bowling all-rounder Sams has taken 11 wickets so far this season and will be desperate to contribute after going wicketless against Perth Scorchers. McAndrew will be high on confidence after taking two of the three wickets against Perth Scorchers in Match 30.
