Hobart Hurricanes host the Sydney Thunder in a do or die Big Bash clash at the Blundstone Arena. The Hurricanes are tipped to make it through to the eliminator with Matthew Wade set to continue his magnificent form.

Alex Hales has been the bright spark of a poor run recently for the Thunder and can be backed in the run scoring markets.

Hobart Hurricanes Form


The Hobart Hurricanes batsmen have started to fire in recent weeks and the return of Matthew Wade from international duty sparked the rise in form. The Hurricanes won their last three matches of the BBL round robin stage to secure their playoff spot.

In their last match the Hurricanes scored a mammoth 217-1 against the Adelaide Strikers as Matthew Wade scored 130 runs and D’Arcy Short 72. Should either fail other form players will follow in David Miller, Ben McDermott and George Bailey.

The Strikers made a valiant attempt but fell 10 runs short on 207 runs at the Adelaide Oval. 

Matthew Wade cannot be ignored after scoring 130 runs and is backed to be the Hurricanes best batsman at 3.40. The form of the Hobart Hurricanes has been irresistible recently and they’re tipped to win at 1.66.

The Hurricanes shouldn’t make any changes barring for any late injuries.

Sydney Thunder Form


The Sydney Thunder grabbed the final playoff spot on the BBL table with a victory over the Perth Scorchers at the Sydney Showground Stadium. In a rain affected match the Thunder chased the 99 runs set by the Scorchers to win by seven wickets.

Alex Hales continued his fine form with 47 runs off 27 balls. This followed scores of 85 and 63 runs in the two matches before so I’m backing him to be the Sydney Thunder’s best batsman at 3.50.

While Hales runs could prove crucial the Thunder have lost two of their last three matches and are thus underdogs at 2.20.

Sydney Thunder News


Sydney Thunder have no fresh injury concerns and have been pretty consistent in selection this season.

Hobart Hurricanes vs Sydney Thunder Head to Head


Hobart Hurricanes have won three of the last five Big Bash matches against the Sydney Thunder while they both won their respective home games this season.

Hobart Hurricanes vs Sydney Thunder Betting Odds


Hobart Hurricanes are priced at 1.66 for the win while the Thunder can be backed at 2.20 to cause an upset.

D’Arcy Short and Matthew Wade are both paying 3.40 in the best batsman market for the Hurricanes while David Miller is priced at 6.50. Alex Hales is the favourite for the Thunder at 3.50 followed closely by Usman Khawaja at 4.00.

To score 50+ runs Wade can be backed at 3.00 for the fourth time in a row. D’Arcy Short has the same odds to score 50+runs.

Hobart Hurricanes vs Sydney Thunder Match Up


Both the Hobart Hurricanes and Sydney Thunder have strong batting line-ups but it is in the bowling department where I believe the Hurricanes have the edge. Should the Hurricanes be able to keep Usman Khawaja and Alex Hales quiet early on the hosts will be well on their way to victory.
