Sydney Thunder are set to lock horns with mighty Perth Scorchers on December 28, at Manuka Oval in Canberra. Scorchers have been the most successful team this season as they haven’t lost a single match since the start of the campaign and are at the top of the points table. Thunders have secured the third position in the points table with the help of two wins but have suffered three losses too.
Perth Scorchers are on a dream run in the campaign. Their whole team has performed well. Mitchell Marsh and Laurie Evans are blazing with bat. Their batting has been one of the reasons for Scorchers having such a successful campaign.
Although, the team must be expecting more from players like skipper Ashton Turner, Cameron Bancroft, and Colin Munro in the batting department. If the team is eying finals then every player needs to be in the mindset where they can save the game in Marsh and Laurie’s absence. Scorchers bowlers are in great form as well, Ashton Agar, Tymal Mills, Andrew Tye all these bowlers have been standout for the team.
On the other hand, Sydney Thunders have struggled to find consistency in the tournament. They started well with a comprehensive win by 7- wickets against Brisbane Heat, but then they suffered two successive defeats, both against Melbourne Stars. Then a win and again a loss against Sydney Sixers
Their players failed to perform on crucial occasions due to which the team had suffered three losses. However, batsmen like Sam Billings, Alex Ross, and Daniel Sam have performed on separate occasions but the team needs their collective performance to win matches, instead of in bits & pieces.
