Head to Head


The Sydney Thunder have won four of their last five matches against the Hobart Hurricanes. That includes a 39-run win in the reverse fixture when the sides met in Perth 11 days ago.

The Thunder posted 167/5 at Optus Stadium before limiting the Hurricanes to 128/8 in the run chase.

Sydney Thunder Form


Second-placed Sydney Thunder have dropped to nine points behind leaders Sydney Sixers after a run of one win in their last four matches.

That win came against the Hobart Hurricanes as they triumphed by 39 runs. Alex Hales and Daniel Sams scored fifties in a total of 167/5 in Perth before the Thunder restricted Hobart to 128/8 in the run chase.

Callum Ferguson's side have lost their subsequent two games to Perth Scorchers and cross-town rivals the Sixers.

The Thunder lost by 17 runs to the in-form Scorchers, being dismissed for 168 in chase of 185. 

Having scored 166/6, the Thunder were then undone in the Sydney derby as the Sixers won on D/L method for a five-wicket win.

Sydney Thunder Team News


Spinner Chris Green missed the last game, but will come back into the Thunder side at the expense of Jono Cook. 

After the run of results, Oliver Davies is an option to bolster the batting stocks in place of Alex Ross. Quick Brendan Doggett is likely to remain as an x-factor option with the ball.

Hobart Hurricanes Form


Hobart Hurricanes find themselves second from bottom after a run of three straight defeats. But significantly, they are just four points behind second placed Thunder.

A 10-run defeat at home to the Melbourne Stars was followed by the 39-run loss to the Thunder in Perth. The Hurricanes collapsed from 98/4 to 128/8 in the run chase against the Thunder.

That became three losses in a row in their last game against the Perth Scorchers. It was another below-par performance with the bat with the exception of D'Arcy Short, who returned to form with a 50.

Short got some support from Tim David (31), but 139/5 was never going to be enough. Scorchers openers Jason Roy (74 not out) and Liam Livingstone (54) took the Hurricanes bowling apart to win with 3.4 overs to spare.

Hobart Hurricanes Team News


With James Faulkner injured, the Hurricanes' options are limited. They lose Colin Ingram but do have Will Jacks available again to face the Thunder

Mitch Owen was handed a debut in Perth and should be retained. Mac Wright is an option to strengthen the Hobart batting line-up.
