Sydney Thunder (THU) will take on Perth Scorchers (SCO) in match 24 of Big Bash League 2021-22 at the Manuka Oval, Canberra on Tuesday, December 28.

THU vs SCO Dream11 prediction

Sydney Thunder take on in-form Perth Scorchers at Manuka Oval on Tuesday. SCO have been in great form this season with six wins from as many outings. They will hope to continue their winning streak against THU and consolidate their position at the top of the points table. 

With two wins from five outings, Sydney Thunder have had an underwhelming season so far. With the tournament heading towards the business end, they will look to add a few wins under their belt and stake a claim for the playoffs berth. 

Given the recent form, Perth Scorchers are overwhelming favourites to win the match against Sydney Thunder. 

THU vs SCO Dream11 team tips for Big Bash League 2021-22

Top tip: Best batter

Perth Scorchers' Colin Munro is a top batting pick for this match. The southpaw has carried on from where he left last season with 204 runs in six matches at a whopping strike rate of 141. Once set, Munro can take apart any bowling lineup in the world with his ferocious striking of the cricket ball. Selected by 81 per cent of the fantasy users already, Colin Munro will be a worthy choice for 9.5 credits. 

Top tip: Best bowler

Picking Andrew Tye of Perth Scorchers in the fantasy team is a no-brainer for this contest. The right-arm pacer is currently the leading wicket-taker in the tournament with 10 wickets in six matches with a dismissal every 12th ball. The 35-year-old is a clever exponent of pace variations and will be entrusted with the responsibility to bowl at the fag end of the innings. With 313 fantasy points already this season, Andrew Tye is a must-have pick for 9 credits. 

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Ashton Agar of Perth Scorchers will be an excellent all-round option for this encounter. The southpaw is currently amongst the leading wicket-takers in the tournament with 10 dismissals from six matches at an economy of 7.08. The 28-year-old is also more than a handy batter lower down the order and can provide some quick runs at the fag end of the innings. With 364 fantasy points to his name already this season, Ashton Agar is a great budget pick for 8.5 credits. 

Amongst the wicket-keepers, picking Sam Billings of Sydney Thunder will be the best option. The Englishman has amassed 169 runs in five matches so far at a whopping strike rate of 142. The right-hander will be expected to play the finisher’s role for this side and given his current form is expected to fetch valuable fantasy points in this encounter. Selected by 83 per cent of the fantasy users, Sam Billings will be a worthy inclusion for 9 credits.
