Sydney Thunder vs Sydney Sixers Match Pitch Report
The pitch of Sydney Showground Stadium helps the fast bowlers more because, at the beginning of the match, the ball of fast bowlers swings on this pitch, and the batsmen face difficulty in playing on this pitch. If a batsman bowls the initial overs then he gets good results in the end. Can score runs.
What to expect:
Sydney Thunder: Cameron Bancroft, Alex Hales, Jason Sangha, and Oliver Davies form a strong top 4 for any T20 lineup. Hales and Bancroft have added 58 and 78 runs to the opening partnership in the last two outings.
The opening duo is in fine touch and can be expected to deliver another good start for the team. It is up to Sangha and Davies at 3 and 4 to carry the momentum forward after the openers are back in the hut.
In the lower-middle order, Alex Ross and Daniel Sams are the big-hitting players to watch out for. They will be in the finisher’s role for SYT and have a crucial role to play with the bat.
It is a well-balanced and deep batting order and is in desperate need of consistency at the moment. The performances of numbers 3 and 4 will make a huge difference to the final total.
SYT’s bowling attack is also as dangerous as their batting lineup. Daniel Sams, Zaman Khan, Tanveer Sangha, and Nathan McAndrew are some of the big guns who’ve been in top form lately.
Sydney Thunder Key Players
- Cameron Bancroft- the keeper-batter gave Sydney Thunder a decent chance of chasing down their target of 173 against Brisbane Heat and has been the most consistent batter for the side in this year’s competition.
- Alex Hales- the 34-year-old tall right-hander hit six boundaries against Brisbane Heat on Wednesday and is looking in fine form at the moment.
- Daniel Sams- the former Australian international was the sixth bowler used by Thunder in their last game and picked up a remarkable four wickets in his final over.
- Zaman Khan- the 22-year-old right-arm fast bowler has had an excellent spell with Thunder so far and has taken five wickets from the last two games.
Probable XI: Cameron Bancroft(w), Alex Hales, Jason Sangha, Oliver Davies, Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, Nathan McAndrew, Chris Green(c), Gurinder Sandhu, Tanveer Sangha, Liam Hatcher.
Sydney Thunder Squad: Cameron Bancroft(w), Alex Hales, Jason Sangha, Oliver Davies, Alex Ross, Daniel Sams, Nathan McAndrew, Chris Green(c), Gurinder Sandhu, Tanveer Sangha, Matthew Gilkes, Liam Doddrell, Toby Gray, Liam Hatcher, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Sam Konstas, Blake Nikitaras, William Salzmann
Sydney Sixers: Sydney Sixers suffered their first defeat of the season while defending a 154-run total at home against Melbourne Stars. Previously, they had defeated the Strikers by just 1 run while defending 155 runs at the same venue.
While they do have a strong bowling attack, they can’t continue to rely on them to defend such below-par totals on great venues. And while the Sydney Showground Stadium is not a particularly high-scoring venue, the Sixers need to push at least 170+ if they bat first.
The opposition has a solid batting lineup with many big-hitting match-winners on their side. James Vince has found his form up the order after failing in the early games.
That is great news for the Sixers but they would also need others in the middle-order to step up and deliver. Wicket-keeper batsman Josh Philippe got a few good starts but failed to convert them into something big.
His insignificant contributions at the top have hurt Sixers big time as he’s eaten up balls during the powerplay. Moises Henriques and Jordan Silk will be crucial at 4 and 5 in building partnerships and if the stage is set by the top order, they will be expected to go all guns blazing.
Sydney Sixers Key Players
- James Vince- the 32-year-old made only 16 runs from his first three innings in BBL 2023-24 but hit eight fours and two sixes in a fluent innings in the last match.
- Moises Henriques- picking the team up after a surprise defeat will be a good test of the skipper’s leadership. He has already made a score of 40 in this year’s tournament.
- Sean Abbott- the all-time leading wicket-taker in the history of the BBL kept the runs down as well as took important wickets in his final two overs against Melbourne Stars.
- Jackson Bird- the right-arm fast-medium bowler picked up two wickets inside the first seven overs of the last match including the big prize of Glenn Maxwell.
Probable XI: Josh Philippe(w), James Vince, Daniel Hughes, Moises Henriques(c), Jordan Silk, Jack Edwards, Joel Davies, Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis, Jackson Bird, Steve OKeefe
Sydney Sixers Squad: Josh Philippe(w), James Vince, Daniel Hughes, Moises Henriques(c), Jordan Silk, Jack Edwards, Joel Davies, Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis, Jackson Bird, Steve OKeefe, Hayden Kerr, Todd Murphy, Kurtis Patterson, Izharulhaq Naveed, Mitchell Perry, Ryan Hadley

Sydney Thunder vs Sydney Sixers Match Both Team Top Batsmen
Alex Hales, Cameron Bancroft, and Oliver Davies are our tips for Sydney Thunder. Davies has begun this tournament in good form once again and the 23-year-old is yet to be dismissed for under 20 across his four innings. Hales has over 420 T20 games of experience to fall back on in this match and has hit six T20 centuries in his career.
James Vince, Josh Philippe, and Moises Henriques are our batting picks for the Sydney Sixers. Top-order keeper-batter Philippe hit a six in the last game and always bats with a strong strike-rate. The 26-year-old needs 40 runs in this game to bring up 2500 T20 runs. Vince is approaching 10000 T20 runs at an average of over 30 and with 65 scores of 50+ from 343 innings.
Sydney Thunder vs Sydney Sixers Match Both Team Top Team Bowlers
Daniel Sams, Zaman Khan, and Chris Green for Sydney Thunder. Captain Green took 1/29 in the defeat to Brisbane Heat but did get the wicket of England international Sam Billings. Sams returned his career-best T20 figures in the last match and over the course of his last two games has taken four wickets against the Stars and five wickets against Heat.
For Sydney Sixers, Sean Abbott, Jackson Bird, and Steve O’Keefe are our bowling selections. Experienced spinner O’Keefe has already played in plenty of Sydney derbies so the importance of the match will not phase him. The spinner got the big wicket of Marcus Stoinis against the Stars. Bird conceded 42 runs in the last match but maintained his record of at least one wicket in each game of this campaign so far.
