Sydney Thunder vs Adelaide Strikers, 32nd Match BBL 2021/22

Sydney Thunder will be up against Adelaide Strikers in the 32nd game of this Big Bash League (BBL) 2021-22. The Sydney Showground Stadium will host this encounter.

After a stuttering start, Sydney Thunder have stabilised themselves and are looking in decent form. At the moment, they have four wins and three losses to their name and are placed fourth on the points table with 16 points. However, it is their recent form that has seen them surge ahead as they’ve won three out of their last four games. A win in this game will see them jump to the third spot.

On the other hand, Adelaide Strikers have endured a torrid run. The Peter Siddle-led side have won just one out of their seven games and are second-last on the points table. In fact, they are on a five-match losing streak as well and most of their losses have been by significant margins as well.

The head to head is even stevens at the moment. Both Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Thunder have won seven games apiece. However, Sydney Thunder have the upper hand when it comes to the last five matches as they’ve won three and Adelaide Strikers have won just one (one washout)

Who will win today’s match Sydney Thunder vs Adelaide Strikers, 32nd Match BBL 2021/22??

Sydney Thunder’s batting charge has been led by Jason Sangha and Sam Billings. Both batters have accumulated in excess of 225 runs and have a strike-rate of over 145. Alex Ross had an early flourish as well. The form of Alex Hales might be a cause of concern as the England top-order batter has mustered just 100 runs in six matches. The bowling has been dependent on Nathan McAndrew and Saqib Mahmood.

On the other hand, Adelaide Strikers’ batting has been up and down and barring Matt Renshaw who has played only four games, none of them have been consistent. The likes of Matthew Short, Jake Weatherald and Jon Wells have made decent contributions but the big scores haven’t comer regularly. The bowling has been heavily reliant on Afghanistan superstar Rashid Khan. Peter Siddle is the only other bowler who has done decently but he has been expensive.

Hence, Adelaide Strikers need to desperately lift themselves up and up their game as well as time may be running out quickly.
