THU vs HUR Dream11 Team Prediction | Match Preview | Top picks

Sydney Thunder and Hobart Hurricanes will play in the 47th game of the Big Bash League 2021-22 at Docklands Stadium, Melbourne. We will cover THU vs HUR Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

Sydney Thunder:

Sydney Thunder has won six consecutive matches and is at the 2nd position on the Big Bash League points table with 30 points.

Mathew Gilkes has struggled to score in the last couple of games, but Alex Hales batted brilliantly, scoring 80 runs and winning the match. Skipper Jason Sangha has been consistently scoring runs at No.3. The middle-order has appeared to be a little weak in the recent games.

The bowlers have been the major strength for the Thunder in the recent games. Gurinder Sandhu has picked up wickets consistently in the last three matches. Nathan McAndrew picked up two wickets, and Daniel Sams, Tanveer Sangha got one wicket each.

With this performance, Sydney Thunder might finish in the top two positions of the points table.

Hobart Hurricanes:

Hobart Hurricanes lost the last match and are currently at the 4th position on the Big Bash League points table with 21 points.

Ben McDermott has been batting well at the top, but he has not gotten enough support from the other end. Caleb Jewell is not scoring runs, and skipper Handscomb is scoring at a low strike rate. In the middle-order, D’Arcy Short has not been able to impact, and Tim David has failed to perform the finisher’s role this season.

The bowlers’ performance was worse in the last match as only Short managed to pick up a wicket. The remaining bowlers conceded runs and went wicketless.

Hurricanes cannot afford to lose matches as there is a tough competition for the 4th and 5th spot in the playoffs.

THU vs HUR Pitch Report

Average first innings score: 185

Average second innings score: 138

(The average score is based on five matches played at this venue this season.)

Most of the matches played at this venue have been high-scoring games. The teams batting first have an advantage and can post a big total, but as the game progresses, it gets difficult to score runs, and as a result, chasing becomes tough.

(The team batting first has won four out of the five matches played at this venue this season.)
