Adelaide Strikers vs Sydney Thunder Match Preview:

The 8th game of the Big Bash League will see the Adelaide Strikers take on Sydney Thunder at the Adelaide Oval, Adelaide. Both the teams will be playing their second game of the season.

Adelaide Strikers:

The first game of the Strikers was washed out due to rain and will hopefully take the field in this game. Their team looks strong on paper and will look to start their campaign on a winning note.

The big absence for them will be Rashid Khan, who is going to miss this season due to an injury. Matthew Short is all set to lead the Strikers this season. With the bat, Skipper Short will be accompanied by D’Arcy Short followed by Chris Lynn. Jake Weatherald, Harry Nielson, and Adam Hose will be the middle order.

With the ball, Wes Agar will be their lead pacer this season with the likes of David Payne, Jamie Overton and James Bazley. Cameron Boyce will handle the spin department.

Sydney Thunder:

The Thunder on the other hand, had to face defeat in their first game against the Heat and will look to bounce back strongly in this game. Their batting will need to fire in this game.

Bowling first in the last game, their bowlers did a brilliant job by restricting the Heat batters to just 151 runs in the 20 overs. Tanveer Sangha and Zaman Khan were the pick from the bowlers and picked up 3 and 2 wickets respectively.

With the bat, their batters failed to build up partnerships and were bowled out for just 131 runs. Oliver Davies and Chris Green were the only batters to crossed the 30-run mark and scored 35 and 30 runs respectively.
