D’Arcy Short has got some decent runs but it has come at a very slow pace and he has a strike-rate of 101.83. Apart from the aforementioned duo, none of them have really come to the party. But the bowlers have performed really well. Tom Rogers, Sandeep Lamichhane, Riley Meredith and Nathan Ellis – all of them have 10+ wickets this season.

On the other hand, Sydney Thunder have had different players stepping up in the recent games. Jason Sangha’s consistency with the bat has lent solidity while Sam Billings was excellent in the nine games he played for the Thunder. Alex Hales seems to be slowly hitting his straps as well with the bat and has shown good form in the last couple of games. Matthew Gilkes has contributed decently as well. Daniel Sams has shown his all-round worth while the likes of Saqib Mahmood ad Gurinder Sandhu have chipped in nicely with the ball.

Sydney Thunder may not have the head to head record but given their form, they will start favourites in this game.
