Adelaide Strikers v Sydney Thunder @ Adelaide Oval
If recent form is anything to go by then this afternoons game between the Thunder and Strikers promises to be a run frenzy.
The Sydney Thunder compiled the biggest score of the competition on Friday against the Sixers – a whopping 232! Alex Hales the star of the show making the first hundred of BBL 10.
The Strikers let off some fire works of their own – 197 they made against the Brisbane Heat. The thing that the two games had in common… a flat Adelaide Oval wicket with a short square boundary.
This game too will be played at the Adelaide Oval and I think the domination of the batters will continue. Suggested bet is for the total match 6’s to be over 12.5.
Sydney Sixers v Hobart Hurricanes @ MCG
The Hobart Hurricanes have slid to sixth on the table after losing four of their last five games and it doesn’t get any easier for them here coming up against the top of the table Sixers.
The Hurricanes started well with the ball on Friday night taking the first four Scorcher wickets for just 66 runs. However they could not remove Josh Inglis who made a quick fire 58 and were left with 179 to chase on a slow wicket.
They put in a commendable effort making 157 off their 20 overs but it was 22 short of what was required.
The Sixers had some problems of their own with the ball in the Sydney Derby. They ran into an inform Alex Hales on a flat Adelaide wicket and it was carnage. The Thunder made 232 – the biggest score of the competition! Like the Hurricanes, the Sixers were gallant in defeat making 186 but the damage had already been done.
Matthew Wade failed with the bat in his first game back from Test duty on Friday but I am backing him to bounce back strongly here. He has been a dominant force in this competition in recent times and a small bet on him to be the top run scorer for the Hurricanes is how I want to tackle this game.
