HUR vs THU Dream11 Team Prediction & Preview: Eliminator, BBL 2019-20
Hobart Hurricanes will take on Sydney Thunder in the Eliminator of Big Bash League 2019-20 at Bellerive Oval in Hobart. We will provide HUR vs THU Dream11 Prediction, Match Preview, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
In the 2 encounters between these two teams in this season, both the teams have won one match each.
Hurricanes after having a tough time this season played brilliantly at the end of league stage by winning 3 consecutive matches and sealed the 4th position on the points table.
In the last match, batting first Hurricanes were just brilliant as the openers Mathew Wade scored 130* runs from just 61 balls and D’Arcy Short scored 72 runs from 55 balls. These two batsmen added 203 runs for the 1st wicket in 18.2 overs and after that D’Arcy Short got out. Hurricanes posted a huge total of 217 runs in 20 overs for the loss of just 1wicket.
With 217 runs to defend, Hurricanes gave away 66 runs in the power play and managed to pick up the only wicket. They were giving away many runs and were unable to pick up wickets. In the 10th and 15th overs, they picked up 2 more wickets. After 14.1 overs the opposition was 142 runs for 3 wickets and it looked like the match could go either way. But Hurricanes bowled well in the death overs by picking up wickets at regular intervals and restricted the opposition to a total of 207 runs in 20 overs for the loss of 8 wickets and won the match by 10 runs. Clive Rose, Nathan Ellis, and Scott Boland picked up 2 wickets each. James Faulkner managed to pick up 1 wicket.
Thunder would consider themselves to be lucky because after a great start to the tournament, they just lost the momentum and at one stage it looked like they would be out of the tournament. But in the end, they somehow managed to get on to the 5th position on the points table and qualified for the playoffs.
In the last match, bowling first Thunder started off well by picking up 1 wicket in the power play for just 36 runs. Even after the power play they never allowed the opposition to score freely and also picked up wickets at regular intervals. The opposition was 99 runs for 4 wickets after 15 overs and the match was interrupted due to rain. As a result, the match was reduced to 12 overs and the target was revised to 96 runs. Jonathan Cook, Chris Tremain, Daniel Sams, and Chris Morris managed to pick up one wicket each.
With 96 runs to chase in 12 overs, Thunder batted brilliantly as the openers Khawaja scored 22 runs from 22 balls and Alex Hales scored 47 runs from 27 balls and they both together added 67 runs to the 1st wicket
Both the teams would be equally confident playing against each other in the Eliminator and both the teams have equally good players on their side.
