Sydney Thunder (THU) will lock horns with Hobart Hurricanes (HUR) in match 47 of the Big Bash League 2021-22 season at the Sydney Showground Stadium on Thursday, January 13. The match will start at 10:15 AM IST.
THU vs HUR Dream11 prediction
Sydney Thunder enter their upcoming fixture in BBL 2021-22 with momentum, having won their last six games in row to sit second in the standings with 30 points. The Hurricanes, on the flip side, are fourth with 21 points having won just two of their last five completed games.
It goes without saying that THU will start as favourites on Thursday, and rightly so having won the reverse meeting with a convincing nine-wicket victory. However, the Hurricanes lead the head-to-head record vs Sydney Thunder with nine wins to seven and they will fancy their chances of ending the latter’s winning run.
THU vs HUR Dream11 team tips for Big Bash League 2021-22
Top tip: Best batter
Jason Sangha is favoured as the top batter for fantasy cricket players in this game, having amassed 329 runs at an average of 65.80. The Sydney Thunder skipper has turned things around for THU since they lost against Sydney Sixers two weeks ago, and he seems poised to play a captain’s knock against Hobart Hurricanes on Thursday. Sangha has accrued 595 fantasy points to his name and is available for 9.5 credits.
Top tip: Best bowler
With 15 wickets so far, Tom Rogers should be the top bowling pick for the THU vs HUR contest. The 27-year-old is commanding an economy of 7.37 in BBL 2021-22 and has aggregated 567 fantasy points for claiming a wicket once in 14.8 deliveries. With the dangerous Alex Hales in top form, fantasy players can bank on HUR’s Rogers to restrict the Englishman’s scoring rate in the powerplay overs.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Among all-rounders, Daniel Sams is well-placed to appease fantasy cricket players. The Australian all-rounder - with 700 fantasy points to his name - has registered 162 runs and 15 wickets thus far and can be a differential for the Sydney Thunder vs Hobart Hurricanes fixture.
Ben McDermott qualifies as a smart wicket-keeping pick for this contest. The Australian wicket-keeper tops the run charts in the tournament - 495 runs - in contrast to his opposite number Sam Billings (284). However, McDermott has just two dismissals from nine matches and will be eager to put in an improved performance on that front as he looks to add to his fantasy tally of 769 points so far.
THU vs HUR probable playing XI
THU playing XI (probable): Matthew Gilkes, Alex Hales, Jason Sangha (captain), Daniel Sams, Oliver Davies, Ben Cutting, Sam Billings (wicket-keeper), Nathan McAndrew, Gurinder Sandhu, Tanveer Sangha, Mohammad Hasnain
HUR playing XI (probable): Caleb Jewell, Ben McDermott (wicket-keeper), Peter Handscomb (captain), Harry Brook, D'Arcy Short, Tim David, Jordan Thompson, Mitchell Owen, Tom Rogers, Riley Meredith, Sandeep Lamichhane
