ADS vs THU – BBL – Team Previews
Adelaide Strikers are coming to play their third fixture after winning two consecutive matches in the tournament. They have already defeated Sydney Sixers in the first game and Sydney Thunder in the second fixture. Their last win was the most dominating win in the history of T20 cricket.
Henry Thornton, who showed great promise in the last season, was tipped to be a key bowler to watch out for this year. The 26-year-old right-arm fast bowler has announced his arrival on the big stage with stunning performances. Rashid Khan is another trustworthy bowler for the Strikers.
Matt Short and Jake Weatherald are two of the most reliable batters in the team. Chris Lynn has also joined Adelaide Strikers after his 11-year stint with Brisbane Heat. His presence will definitely bring some depth to the batting lineup of the Strikers.
Sydney Thunder witnessed a disappointing end to their batting lineup against Adelaide Strikers at a very low score of 15 runs. However, they revived their style of play against the Melbourne Renegades but the team ended up losing the game.
With their collaboration, Rilee Rossouw and Alex Ross laid the groundwork for a successful conclusion. Later, Ross and Oliver Davies added 42 off 23 balls for the 6th wicket and ensured the Thunder finished with a competitive total. This performance must have boosted their confidence after what happened a few nights ago in Sydney.
Daniel Sams, Gurinder Sandhu, and Brendan Doggett are three bowlers to look forward to. The trio will be crucial in the upcoming match.
There is no reason why Sydney Thunder can not score 175 or 180+ runs total on a good batting track. However, the opposition has an in-form bowling attack that has been phenomenal at home.
